Been playing with this on and off for a while, still not finished because a leg injury, meant I couldn't go up the bell tower for the last month or so,  to finish getting measurements (It's our local church).

Anyway thought I'd post the progress,  the two inside views may seem odd, I thought I would play with RedSDK Volumetric effect, but not mastered it yet.    Some detail is lost because I reduced the files to 800 pixels wide for posting..

    most impressive. And, thank you for the update.
    How did you create the stained-glass windows?

Thanks Everyone for having a look.

    How did you create the stained-glass windows?

That was time consuming. the frame is lofted as 'cookie cutters' and subtracted from a box the get the cut outs. There are nine different window frame designs,  A picture was taken of the actual window, and a second picture of the frame rendered in TC.

Opened the actual window in Corel paint, adjusted some of the perspective that the camera had introduced, masked out and created objects of the different sections (average 9 per window). Then opened the picture of the TC rendered frame, masked out and deleted the glass parts. Over-lay the frame onto the window image, and adjusted the objects into the hole in the frame, then hid the frame.  Saved as jpg.

A long process, but with my little camera and the size of the window, there was just too much perspective to allow the original window image to be wrapped in TC.  With the above done, in TC, I created an ACIS 'sheet' object and wrapped the result onto RedSDK.

Terrific work Andy. A lot of time went into that, I am sure.

There's so much to learn and not much time left to learn it.

Detail is exceptional, what a great project. Roughly, how many hours spent on the project to-date?

Sorry Bob, forgot to answer you.   Actually I've no idea about the time,  in theory TC is supposed to keep track of time, but it doesn't work on my computer,  (it currently says total editing time -31 minutes). also because the 289MB file take a while to open up, once open I just leave it in memory and minimise TC when not using it. so if timing was working it would not be accurate,  we are definitely taking well over 300 hours. What can I say, I'm a bit slow  ;D

Dont believe it's something about work slow, or at least i hope so as i also have a drawing that state -31 :), Guess it's over the limit of time TC count the hour.
If it's not an hour based job, i dont see the reason for closing the drawing when leaving it for 1 day or more, only lose time when need to open it again :)

BTW, rally great job and model
