hahah~ i just found out carrara is being purchaced by adobe so no takers then eh?

i do like the *spline* modeler part of it though because it provides a plane w/grids on it ie: x/y/z when modeling

i've done alot of on the fly 3D MAX stuff

dose 3D max have such a setting? (creating gridlines for each plane?) (x/y/z)

If I understand you correctly, then the answer is Surface tools - new for MAX 3.

good luck!

Carrara will take eps and ai files, it does not have a polygon optimizer and it is fairly easy to extude, spline, loft, metaball, Its a nice nurbs modeler for the money if you like the Metacreations interface. ;) Regards, Bill
