I have been playing around with other software lately and remodeled my globe stand there. I think the other software uses a pared down version of Keyshot and although some things are much easier to set up in that software I think that TurboCAD offers a better overall end render. This is mostly because we have so much more freedom in TurboCAD when it comes to lighting and other environment options. In the attached image, although easy to set up, I could not get a carpet shadow like my TC version has, so I had to forgo it. In my book, that is just too limiting.
I sure wish the TurboCAD market would grow substantially and we would see a lot more resources put into making RedSDK easier to work with. In some ways I like the renders from RedSDK more than I do with with LightWorks, but Red is still not as easy to work with as LightWorks and is missing some functions that made LightWorks a good solution for many years.
I also wish that TurboCAD would pour a lot more resource money into Smesh development so we had all the tools necessary to work better with that technology (T-Splines). The attached bi-plane was my first T-Spline model and I sure would have liked to have been able to do this in TurboCAD as easily as I could in the other software.
