Re: A challenge

Its not easy, and it should be. If you know the object dimensions and you get different results in the 3D pdf, then its possible to adjust the scale in Simlab. The difficulty is when you don't know how big the object is. The other factor is the measuring of the object to figure out the scaling. Usin...

Wellhead model

Nothing impressive. Its just an example of how easy it is to get a rendering from a cad model (SolidWorks).
Just dropped a material on it and rendered. Done.

Re: Object bounding box dimensions

I was thinking of a simpler way (at least from user perspective) by adding to Transform Panel

Re: A challenge

I am open to work around methods, including measuring the object in another application to verify the size. My challenge is the ideal case, where I can rely exclusively on Simlab to produce output that is correct. It seems unchecking "scale" on import options still results in the object no...

Re: Can you spot the difference?

Ease In/Out or other motion curve on the tweens? The left does look a bit smoother, but if you hadn't mentioned it I would not have caught it. Or maybe I didn't?

Re: A challenge

Thanks Tessla, your request for chocolates as payment makes me think there may be a place for Cryptochocolates , and a big plus, they don't melt :D I have woefully lacking in attempts to explain this difficulty previously, so I reasoned that if Simlab works through this simple task I may not need to...

A challenge

Hi Simlab, Here's the challenge: Attached is an STL file. Please convert to 3D PDF. The rules. 1. You may only use Simlab Composer (no measuring, scaling, or moving the object in another application) 2. The object must retain its position with respect to the origin 3. The object originated in an inc...

Re: Can you spot the difference?

Hmmm ... wood grain is showing up better in the left example, especially in the reflection, and there's a slight color difference from the right. Otherwise, no
