hi every body
does any body have any angles on working with faces,face on ?
i have been working on a ring that is oval in shape
and using the sculpting tools post scan
however knowing the limitations that artcam encounters in greyscale to topographic represntations
i am thinking that the only real solution to my problem is to directly sculpt using vector outlines
from the scan this is a lenthy process involving multiple paste opperations and detailed sculpting is a pain in the rear with only a revert command
micheal angelo may well turn in his grave but we have customers with attitude (i know who doesn't) ha ha
anyway we would really appreciate any response in this area dont be shy show us your mistakes too!
thanks a lot 'h' @ niges

Check out the following, at least it will take care of most of the work (I think).

If you read the bios of Michelangelo and his relationship with the Pope you will see that he would understand clients with attitude very well!

Is there a problem with the FaceGen software? Is it very expensive or is there another problem?
