Does this mean that my 35 or 37 suggestions should not go to the "Suggestions" part of the forum?

Oops I was missing a letter. Should have said "suggestion for a tip".

profiles are the starting point for so much geometry

I KEEP coming up against bad profile issues - and it takes an age to get a clean profile again

Sometimes the software spots the overlap or the gap for me - and sometimes it doesn't

Tips on cleaning up profiles quickly would warrant much love

tutorials and book wanted !

the documentation is just insufficient !
best tutorials I've see, are from bonzai3d ,
everybody has access, easy, and covers all the bases.

note:
the rendering engine , is not bad,
but without any decent documentation, or tutorial,
it's not really usable.

I'm constantly adding more tips, it's fun:). When you purchase the PDF, you'll get PDF updates as they become available. If anyone buys the hardcover, drop me an email and I'll also include you on the PDF update list.

I have purchased the book from Amazon here in the UK and am very pleased with it.
I am only on page 19 and already have learn how to use the Gripper properly and the use of the deep select tool. I was unaware also of the collapse palette feature which is useful.
Great book Tim.
