Is "WELD EDGES" part of the official distro of LW?

I wasn't able to find any dox in LWM10.pdf, nor 11.6 addendum, nor 11.5 addendum.

If it's not in the 11.6 addendum it won't be in the 11.5 one (or the 11.0.3, 11, etc. addenda). Each time there's a new revision it supersedes and incorporates the previous documentation.

So, is it part of the official distro????

If it is, IS it in the dox?

(blah blah online dox blah blah crowd-sourced ommission correction blah blah blah...)

In the LW10.1_Whats_New.pdf you can find Weld Edges on page 19, if that is what you're looking for......

Thanks for finding that.

It'll be nice when I don't have to check 3 different files for info.

agree, that info should be merged into an updated 11.6 Modeler pdf

and again, this is one of the reasons i'm hoping for an online html manual, that is up to date 24/7...

It won't be added to the 11.7 addendum. The addendum is only for stuff new to 11.x otherwise we'd end up not only incorporating all the pre-11 stuff but having to edit it all to match 11 workflows. This was discussed quite heavily, but really is unworkable. When 12 ships it will have new, complete, modern documentation that will still be a heck of a lot of work to put together, but should satisfy everyone's needs.

ahaa!! so there will be a LightWave 12... http://erikalstad.com/backup/misc.php_files/047.gif

There will be a 12, 13, 14, 15 and so on unless something happens that prevents the incrementation of version number...

Is there a schedule for dealing with the inevitable errata and omissions? Semi-weekly would be nice.

Any chance of ongoing linking of useful online articles and videos?
