2017-10-04 Designer Tutorial Video

As promised, the first designer tutorial video is done. It shows how to make a basic minimal spacecraft.

I will make more videos to add details, like texturing and lights.

That looks easier to use than I had feared, nice.

e: To be clear, I had attempted to use the designer up to this point, and was totally failing to achieve anything.

I love the car. 8-)

A couple of observations about the video:
  • A 2m tall doorway is pretty short. A standard metric size is 1.2m x 2.1m. 2.5m works well.
  • The starboard thruster cone got placed in the wrong spot, only 2m from the edge, instead of 3m like the port side.

If it makes you feel better, it is orders of magnitude easier to use than OpenCascade. Keep on keeping on, you'll get use to it!
