    The cat is out of the box . Viktor had some issues with NURBS for LWCad before, but he found a way around those issues.

    LWCad 5 will be awesome!

    I'm not a user of LWCAD yet, but I want to be. Should I wait for version 5 to come out?

    If you really want the new nurbs feature, there hasn't been a free upgrade announced yet for buying the current version. But he's about to start a sale on LWCAD for 20% off. A full license will be $239. Upgrades from 3.x will be $119 and upgrades from 2.x will be $179. As far as I'm aware, there's no upgrade path from the free version that came with LW9 (which was version 1.5 I believe).

    Any idea on upgrades from 4.5?

    EDIT: Ah, just checked his site and I see that you are quoting the current upgrades to 4.5, not upgrades to 5. Nevermind...

    Wow! I'm way more excited about this than Mesh Fusion or MetaMesh! Instant upgrade for me. One thing I just noticed on W-Tools web site - it says that LWCad 4.51 was just released-February 24th, 2014 - I've been using 4.51 since Aug 22, 2013. What gives?

    I'm a bit confused as well. Is it really 4.51 brand new or new as in official release new of sorts? I've been using it for months too.
    Salut!,

    That's too bad. There's some lwvers I know still using lw 9 with the old lwcad. Maybe Victor can offer a last chance upgrade like what Vue did a few years back.

    I am looking forward to the nurbs surfaces. Should make things much easier.

    I assume you have to freeze the nurbs to render in Layout.

    Interesting...I wonder if we will be able to trim surfaces and set curvature between surfaces. Maybe in the future we can use LWCAD to import/export STEP and IGES files in LightWave.
    I'll keep my eyes on this one for sure.
