Once again guys well done.
The latest projection feature is just what I have been waiting for. I have spent many hours drawing individual bricks to make a castle tower for a medieval fortress I am 3d printing for my grandchildren. The first tests of the projection tool have produced exactly what I need.
Fixing the grid size to a set dimension works really well, I didn’t realise how many times I checked the grid spacing. Having a set grid helps when I am designing a garden. It gives a better visual representation of the space available when the initial layout is being decided. I set the grid to .5m for the garden layouts and 5mm for the 3D printed designs.
With both garden design and 3d printing I work in groups. If the objects are going to be printed I copy and join them into a single piece on its own group then send that group to the slicing software. At times the objects end up in an unexpected group. It’s part of the design process, a random thought as I work on a project, or an object copied without paying attention etc. Anyway at times it is hard to find where the object is without going through all the groups. It would really help if the group name could be included on the information line at the bottom of the screen as well please.
The iPad is seldom out of my hands. Your app is my favourite and the results I am getting both professionally and recreationally are beyond anything I could have ever expected. The “old” iPad Pro is now taken out on site more frequently and new aspects of my job are being developed in conjunction with your product. The “new” iPad Pro is protected and kept at home where something strange has happened. In the past I spent many recreational hours by myself in my home office working and playing on the the desk top computers and printers. I still do the things that require the fixed desktop systems there. But with your app I have a choice and can now do the designs while I sit in a comfortable arm chair in the living room, drink at hand, tv on in the background and even occasionally talk to my wife!
The freedom your app brings to being creative is a very important aspect I think you should make more of. For me to sit in a garden and produce designs in the actual surroundings are obvious. It saves time, it involves the client in the design process and produces better results by taking out the delay factor involved in travelling back to the desk top. Just as important the investment in the equipment and software has paid for itself time and again.
I don’t have a clue how the maths behind your software works and to be honest don’t really care. I am a gardener which in effect means I am working by hand on the land and that’s about as low tech as you can get. The people I work for just want me to layout their gardens so they can come home and enjoy their free time. I want you to make your software as easy as possible so that I can come home and enjoy my free time. So far guys we are all doing really well.
