    Yeah, I'm really enjoying LWCAD in C4D, they did a great job with the integration. Having LWCAD in C4D also removes one of the last reasons I had to endure LW Modeler. I'd really like to see LWCAD for MODO, together with MODO's procedural system it'd be fantastic.

    Yeah!! LWCAD in Modo would rock! I've asked for it, but Victor is too busy with the other two..

    Does LWCad/LW differ significantly from LWCad/C4D?
    They only call it 'class warfare' when we fight back.

    All that is powerful or long standing is first conceived in the imagination; supported by the hope of possibility and then made manifest in our commitment of our current physical reality.

    Well, If you plan on using edge to stair I think you'll have to endure it a bit longer (I don't think it is in C4D yet)

    Yes it does because in C4D / Max it's parametric, in LW destructive.

    In C4D there are objects (Walls, WinDoors etc), in LW polygons. The LWCAD objects work very well with other objects.

    Feature wise there are more tools in LW (that are simply not required in the others in my opinion).

    I don't know LWCad/LW, and had the impression it maintained some form of parametricalaizationosityesquednesss in some of its entities.

    There are no entities / objects in LW, only Points, Edges, Polys, Lights and Cameras. Therefore it can't work in my opinion. Except all data is stored within the plugin which doesn't make sense in case of LWCAD.

    One problem comes in things like Booleans which is a major function of LWCAD are destructive in LW. Its one of the problems in my creating presets for LWCAD. I can make square windows and round windows(or any shape really defined with a curve/line). When you add a window into a wall in LWCAD, it uses Booleans to cut out the shape for window. If you LWCAD's instancing system which allows you to replace your window with a different preset later, if you add a square window and wish to add a round window in that spot later, it won't work because the original preset already cut a square shape into the wall and there's no undoing that in LW because there is no history or stack to call on. You'll end up with a square hole surrounding a round window.

    A shoddy example but serves the purpose.
