schestowitz                                    <blockquote>Apr 24 05:27
schestowitz                                        <p>Recently, I started doing a while bunch of new models in SketchUp, and I always try to only use my own components, never anything from the 3D warehouse. This means extra work, but also more satisfaction when you succeed. But then, I did face one big challenge. How to make a helix, a three-dimensional spiral, that most elusive of shapes.</p>Apr 24 05:27
schestowitz                                        <p>In essence, most of 3D design is just figuring the intricate intersect of planes in three dimensions. Sounds trivial, but sometimes, you end up scratching your head, not quite sure what to do. I decided to check a number of online tutorials, and while they do accomplish the task, I found them impossible to reproduce. The actual steps needed in SketchUp baffled me more than the concept of how a helix Apr 24 05:27
schestowitzshould look like. Well, eventually, with great satisfaction, I worked it out. It's not the prettiest or most efficient method, but it's dead simple. Let me show you.</p>Apr 24 05:27

schestowitz-TRTwitter changed. To say I made a mistake joining after Tony Manco had asked me to joinApr 24 10:44 (I was hesitent) and them put copies in Twitter) is revisionismApr 24 10:44
schestowitz-TRthe problen is how the sites change over the yearsApr 24 10:44
schestowitz-TRFB was also different in 2006, maybe close to benign at the very startApr 24 10:44
schestowitz-TRfwiw, during ooxml/odf wars bob sotur was posting this stupid "tweet" thingApr 24 10:44
schestowitz-TRand he also shilled second ligeApr 24 10:44
