Not much response!
Probably talking to myself
For those like myself being a newbie & starting out with TurboCad Deluxe, rendering among many other things is a little overwhelming.
Today I spent a bit of time on the net reading many complaints about how Deluxe won't do this & won't do that & it has trouble rendering etc etc.
Being entirely new to all this it makes you start thinking about the product itself without personally trying to set the program correctly, of course not knowing how to?
As my first attempt at rendering the Flange file above shows, to forget the lighting, it has rough edges & many flaws that ruin things entirely & this is as good as I could get it at the time not knowing what to do even though I rendered something else that is respectable at least with the factory settings.
I spent some time in the program today & started designing a single cylinder engine that would not render correctly with facets being blacked out & all sorts of rough edges etc & I found with just one click it fixed all the issues & it looks great.
I rendered the same file above with the new setting only & you can see a marked difference between the two renderings, if you compare the first rendering above & the one attached here you will see the differences, forget the lighting & other problems, I have to learn about that & fix that later!.
So, I guess what I am trying to say is don't knock the program until you know how to drive it, personally I think for the minimal price you pay for it, it is great value, I'm impressed with it.
