View Full Version : Where do I buy LW manual ?

08-15-2004, 11:20 AM
Online ordering for most products is available in the continental US. International customers
should find a local distributor using our international dealer locator.

Where can I get the printed manual if I live outside the US ? Or do I really have to find a local
dealer...cant I just buy from the www.newtek.com site ? Would be great to order Ablan LW8
book and Killer tips from the same place...

Sorry for braindead question but I cant find answers elsewere, help please !

Thanks in advance !

Registered users can download the full manual from the Newtek website; it's on the downloads page for Lightwave as a self-extracting Acrobat file. The printed version will apparently be available late summer, according to Newtek Europe's sales people.
As for the Dan Ablan book, I'm not sure. Have you looked on Amazon? I bought Inside Lightwave 6 from there when it first came out, and I had it within 2 days.
Hope that helps m8 :)

EmperorPete, thanks for answer !

Yes, I downloaded the pdf manual,
but I guess Im old fasion, I just can't
stand reading books n manuals on screen.
And no, Im not going to print 1510 pages :)

I'll have to wait til late summer to get the
printed version then.

Thanks again for info !

I think I saw you can purchase the manuals from safeharbor for less sthan the $100 newtek is asking. They are out and you can buy them. I bought mine already.

Safe Harbor does not sell the printed
manual, only comes with full/upgrade
purchase... Man, is hard getting a printed
Lightwave manual these days, if you not happend to live in the US.

But found "LightWave 3D 8.0 Library" at
Safe Harbour, great bundle !

I allways order books from Amazon.com via air mail.
Amazon.co.uk (Great Brittain) to be exact and I live in Belgium.
Am very pleased with their service.

Inside Lightwave 8 is great and I also would suggest "1001 Tips & Tricks" by Wes Becksmith, Steve Warner and Robin Wood.

I also have Killer Tips by Dan Ablan, and although I have'nt yet read both of them completely, it seems to me that 1001 Tips & Tricks contains MUCH more (it's also 3 times as thick) and has been developed with the help of more than 30 of Lightwaves gurus!

A must have.
