    And nobody does that, ofc, because posts to the blog are incredibly rare. The blog post by itself just isn't adequate notification. Also, both FB & Twitter posts will only grab eyes for a very...

    That's not really accurate, see here under "Command IPC". marchermitte is correct, even with hub disabled, Modeler and Layout communicate about object updates. As long as you don't have the...

    I'm guessing ~40ki threads/vcores total, the other combinations don't fit with the current limits of crossbar interconnect technology. Even 32 machines at 32 nodes (==CPUs) per machine is pushing...

    Great example of why it's always better to explicitly state what you have, not use labels like "latest version" (too often, the person's notion of "latest" isn't the actual "latest") -- I encountered...

    When you mention "creating new geometry", can you clarify what precisely that means? Is new geometry being manifested in Layout (and if so, by what SDK means), or are you externally modifying object...

    You didn't provide anywhere near enough info to diagnose your issue.

    Which LW2019 version? Which Win10 version? Is it just Layout that's crashing, Layout & Modeler, or other processes as well?...

    My thanks to TPTB for a response! Might be worth putting a pointer to the blog article in "Lightwave Announcements" as well, if not there already.

    I wish they'd fixed a few more "known...

    You might want to read and analyze a bit further, particularly around the acquisition numbers themselves.

    In an acquisition of a product-oriented company, when acquisition "Goodwill" winds up being twice total asset fair value (and the largest percentage overall), that's generally not "good news" for the...

    I'm pretty sure their Mac support is 64-bit Intel-only (same as LW, at least for LW2018 / LW2019 version) based on the dylibs provided.

    As for being "production-ready", that's a bit of a trick...

    That's a bunch to unpack (and I'm not getting into Kray-vs-Octane comparisons), but here's goes:

    1. Kray 3.05, at least in my first hour of testing, is significantly faster than LW's native...

    Practically, if usage of LW is shifting more towards Modeler side than Layout side, then that's all the more reason the devs need to pursue a "fast path" strategy for non-destructive modeling of some...

    What you're seeking is precisely how the LWCAD objects work in C4D (and presumably Max): Until/unless you flatten the object(s) back into polys, objects remain parametric, and you can apply...

    You might be correct, but that's not a positive. No priming the market, no pre-announce to give customers a chance to plan/prepare for market transition, nothing "professional" about the release...

    Yes, and LW2018 was first announced in early Dec. I can't find conclusive details about LW2019, so maybe it just appeared with no pre-notice (and if so, that'd make LW2019 an anomaly itself). That...

    Yeah, I've been really satisfied with both LW & C4D versions of LWCAD!

    I'm not entirely surprised to hear that about Max LWCAD, when it comes to arch-viz-type tools there's already a LOT out there...
