Ha! I didn't even notice when I replied to it. I've been vacant from here for a while.

Re: CAD Render-Rama

I don't do much 3d rendering but this was one of my few tries, 10 yrs ago, crazy how time flies. Modeled in solidworks, rendered in Vray. These were done mostly to try to nail down settings to get fast renders and to practice making my own textures from scratch. Quite a learning experience 3135_p0s2...

Re: Travel bag/system design

For a sprint through the airport on wheels, gliders are the way to go. I designed this one two years ago. They're low to the ground so won't tip like the more vertical spinners when they run across a harder curb and the handle has a lot of different height stops so you can position it exactly where ...

Uniball jetstream 1.0. Expensive, but nice. Don't marker over it though or it'll bleed.

Re: Techpack best practices and software

I can't stand excel. We generally keep them in illustrator as multiple pages and then just send it all out as a PDF. I've been doing it that way since 98. Excel can be used for some parts like a separate sheet for just showing materials used for the project, but then all the drawings and specs are j...

Re: A rotating stand for sketching -Wacom Cintiq Companion

Interesting concept. It seems like it may be a bit clunky for the way that I draw since you go to predefined angles, but I can see it marketed as being a flexible stand so you can place it however you want. To accomplish this same thing manually, on my old Tecra notebook, I just bought a lazy susan ...

Re: Portfolio Ethics?

In most places the concepts you develop while on their dime still belong to them. So even if it doesn't make it to market or gets shelved, it's still part of their idea database that belongs to them, and there may be things there that they decide to revisit a year later so if you show it, you just s...

Need I mention the Taktik from Scott Wilson, probably old news by now. I use one and love it, it's very tough.

No surprise here. I saw this coming when digital cameras first started up, the beginning of the end.

Re: Freelance do you keep many clients

I've freelanced for about 13 years and it was always a mix. I tended to keep consistent ones over the course of years and then there would be random ones that would either only use me once or twice because they just needed an IDer for that project (when normally they don't need one), or it was someo...
