Hi, I am trying to learn 3D on my own and have been trying to use IMSI's DVD training program to familiarize myself with the concepts and procedures of 3D drawing. I have found it EXTREMELY frustrating as it seems quite poorly written, much less thought out. Many details are left out and some of the things they describe just don't work. Case in point. In session three, I am told I can project the center point of a 3D circle onto a surface by referencing the center of a cylinder above the current plane. It simply doesn't work. This program is supposed to be specific to TC Deluxe but are they perhaps referring to Pro or something else where that function actually does work? This isn't the first instance where I've had to simply give up on a concept they've presented and move on.
I've found IMSI's online User Guide, training materials on DVD and in print to be woefully inadequate on many levels. (Many details are left out, forcing me to spend copious amounts of time trying to figure it out on my own, and some things they present are just plain wrong.) Any words of wisdom as to how I might educate myself? There just don't seem to be any books available, which would be my first choice. I'm not a big fan of online documentation but would be willing to struggle through if there is a good source out there.
Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
