Now, note for Newtek. Lets get real, fire your web guy and hire Victor. I have nothing more to say.

funny to read always these "NT should hire developer X" or "NT should buy company Y" arguments... as if it was easy like that :D

also, it's not always true that having every possible resource in house would be a better solution for a company than keeping them outsourced or as a developing partner.

reality is complex, more complex than a 'buy' or 'like' button in any case...

maybe viktor and DP should get together! they both create amazing addons, and one of them for free!

also, look at Router, IMHO an advanced level argument for NT *not* "buying in" Viktor / LWCAD. Keep it in Viktors own vision and I think you're going to get far more features and development.
Heck, look what he's done with LWCAD4.0 vs 3.6! :D

Not surprising. There are several people in the Modo community who also use LW/LWCAD.

I see two realities. One is, Modeler needs a lot of love. Other one is, Viktor does a hell of the job pushing current abilities to the max, even with SDK limitations. Giving him full access to code should yield great results.

Why is victor presenting the latest lwcad 4 with lightwave 9 version?

Just more comfortable with that interface or what?

LWCAD4 works fine with both LW9.6 and LW10 so maybe he's making a marketing point of showing those with LW9.x (like moi), that they can still enjoy the fruits of his labours. :D

Plus ... that video is 45 minutes long! Depending when he made it, it's probable there may have been a few new bugs he could not yet iron out with 10.

CRIPES! Viktor has totally changed the face of modeler. Other than the navigation and same performance it's like a totally different program.

How are you guys able to use the downloads? It's in BETA, right? My license isn't working and I bought into 4.0. Any ideas why this might be? I sent an email to Viktor on Monday and haven't heard back from him...yet?

Thats odd as Viktor is normally on the case in such matters, I normally get a reply in very short order.
Did you get your License Report for LWCAD4? if so, you should be able to get access to the beta builds.

No, didn't get a report.

I purchased via SafeHarbor who claim from the website that buying the 3.6 license will provide access to 4.0.

I hope to hear from Viktor soon.

I also bought the 3.x upgrade with the 4.0 option once it's out, but no access to beta. Still, no time for betas so I'm happy waiting :)

I still don't see an option for 3.6 user to upgrade to 4.0

Us 3.6 users will probably have to wait until 4.0 is released to order.

Maybe I've just misunderstood, thinking we could all get access to the 4.0 BETA.

The license I bought from SafeHarbor includes the upgrade to 4.0. Yah-hoo. :bday:

Viktor has a beta team which he emailed about this beta release. I'm one of the lucky ones, but I hadn't bought the 4.0 upgrade until today. So, no access yet to his new gem. I hope I'll get the 4.0 serial number tomorrow, I want to play this weekend :D!

@COBRAsoft - Lucky Dog. :D

I just got my license for 4 sent to me and this note - "This license report can be generated anytime you need. Just go to 'product activation' section at www.wtools3d.com, and use 'send my my license' option."

Yeah, I just got my license and the beta :).
It's looking great guys!

It's looking great guys!

Sadly in a way, would we have expected any less? ;) :D

To clarify, I mean, Viktor is so good at producing awesomeness that you'd kinda be shocked if he didn't. :p

So true - in fact, it is so true that the awesomness (I do use that word with a great sense of irony) of each release is quite mediocre news, and it would be greater news if he produced something just decent. If you get my drift.

Long live Viktor's mediocre news of each awesomnessest release :D

I've been meaning to buy the upgrade for ages, but completely forgot! Been far too busy!

Viktor... expect my money in the next week or so! :D

Love the tools, and so much has happened since version 2 (which i have.)


Newtek do know about these tools etc, just wish they'd brag about them as if they are their own. Autodesk brag about FumeFX and other cool tools, obvious really, someone has made them for their package!

I can GUARANTEE that when Viktor releases the plugin on 3dsmax, Autodesk will go wild and publish it everywhere!!! They'd be stupid (or Newtek's marketing team) if they didn't.

Newtek even bundled LWCAD with LW purchase, I'd say this is pretty supportive.

Yep, true... was supposed to put that in my post above. It got me to buy into it though!!! :D
