    Dongle ID?

    Where can I find this? It does not show when I open up modeler. I followed the instructions regarding configs, but I can't register due to lack of hardware lock. Any ideas?

    I do use accutrans. It works great with 3ds and dxf files. It takes all the autocad layers and puts them them into seperate lightwave layers. Very nice for texturing and manipulating.
