Hi everyone. . .I hope someone knows where I can find a LW snow flake that I can use on a commercial I am making for a local bakery for there January white sale. . .I need it to look like the snow flake that is on the front cover of the Digital Juice January 2004 catalog. . . If anyone can please point me in the right direction for this object, I need it kind of quick, as I want to try to show the client a proof as soon as Monday January 12

Well, why don't you just model it? A snowflake is a simple enough object (even though I don't know the one you mentioned). All you would need to do is model one branch and then radially clone it. Due to the cristaline nature of the thing you would only need cylinders, boxes etc. and could get very close to it with the camera without feeling ashamed.

does anyone know where i can find a box model. i need it for a commercial project i'm charging the client $10,000 for. i can't compensate you and the manual intimidates me. i know there's some way to model this, but my copy of lightwave won't save because it's in "demo mode". thanks.:p
