Hello Scott;

was wondering if you had a chance to look over my email and attachments of May 6.  I'm still at a loss as to how to get Flamingo to properly render the piping on the boat cushions that Rhino render shows plainly.  These are made by applying piping to a curve, given diameter and so forth, pretty much by the book.  I used the material editor to assign color and texture to the curve and all rendered quite well in Rhino, but not at all in Flamingo Nxt.  While this issue may be small, it does illustrate an important part of the overall project and similar applications to the surrey top of the boat also indicate how it is possible to enter and egress with the top deployed.  These may be seen in my uploaded photo files.  Many thanks, Rob

Hey Scott;

you've been a great help and I'm compelled to pester yet again.  Attached are two renderings that are to include piping.  The Rhino rendering show the piping just fine while the Nxt rendering does not show the piping.  I created the piping while my menu choice for renderer was Nxt and used the Nxt control panel to assign material to the piping.  Many thanks again, hope to hear from you soon.  Rob LaddFlamingo%20Nxt%20rendered%20boat%20cushions.jpgRhino%20V5%20rendered%20boat%20cushions.jpg

Hello Scott, I just installed Rhino 5.0, Flamingo nXt and the Render Farm, following the steps to submit an image to the render farm it tells me to Launch WalkAbout and then to press the Render Farm button on he WalAbout toolbar, the problem is that there is NO such button on the toolbar, is there a way to add it to it or what can I do? Thank you.

-Bernardo

I suppose that in the Document Properties it should be found, but I don't see where it says so. By the way, I am using the beta version of flamingo, or flamingonxt. Is there a difference between them? I have looked around through the internet to find where to change it, but I cannot find it.

Hello, I'm a student studying architecture and we have just begun working on rendering with flamingo. Is there any way to change to dpi or have the renders larger than the default format? We need larger images for the boards we are creating for our work.

Sorry, I've just joined. I put up a pretty picture just as a place-card to see how the page rendered it. That will be replaced as soon as I have something better. I'm still learning Rhino, a newbie I'm afraid.

I'll remove it if it matters.
