hey all,

so i was leafing through the new 3D world (at least it is the newest to me haha) and i came across something that i thought was odd. on page 97 in the section about customizing your workstation for generalist work they list the 'suitable software for use with this system' at the bottom. one of them is blender. the logo that they are showing for blender has a lightwave logo in the center of it. is that normal? or did someone at 3D World grab the wrong one and not notice it?

i did manage to find the image online as well:

Ya something like this suggests Lightwave and Blender are somehow affiliated with each other which they are definitely not. The only things that Lightwave and Blender seem to have in common is that they are both very respectable 3D programs.

Looks like someone used that as a logo for the Blender LWO importer...?

when i go to google images and type in 'blender logo' the largest image that comes up on the first page is the blender/lw one. i wonder if that's not what 3d world did as well.

Being a fan of both programs and having seen them compliment each other, I really like the logo. I should have come up with this. Don't know about the legality of it. As a user I don't care I just hope both programs keep getting better and better!

That bothered me right away. Who is in charge in the 3D World graphics dept. ? This was obviously intentional.
