I just hope that turbocad continues to pay attention to Redsdk as a render program..now that lightworks is the default in 2018..redsdk has a lot of many great features that I've become to like..it's hidden line render is one..I've got both in my vs 21 premium and would hate to see redsdk take a sidestep..too bad they didn't offer both in there premium version

I doubt IMSI will incorporate the two rendering engines by default, into future versions of TC.  It is just not cost effective. 

I would think RedSDK will remain as a 'plug-in' for the next couple of years. giving the management time to decide on the future direction of TC.

Just that redsdk has such nice smooth hidden lines. this is with my v21 pro plat..not sure if 2018 has something similar without redsdk.. haven't had a chance to try out 2018 yet..

That was with 4x AAnti-Aliasing even better with 16x

I agree Redsdk looks more professional in hidden and wireframe and it seems to operate better with larger files, I added Redsdk because of the above.

I'm really liking redsdk hidden line with shading to background..makes it really nice to work in 3d

RedSDK has, unfortunately, a very poor result in Paper space.  I haven't figured out a workaround for its fuzziness other than switching to LightWorks.

I've found RedSDK Hidden Line to be nice (my fence posts in Platinum) and not so nice other times (protractor scale in Deluxe).
