Out of the Box

Yeah, it seems that way.
Problem is it is only that the cursor isn’t visible all the time. When recording with a normal tablet the cursor is always there on screen even if you have lifted off, so you can see what it is doing. That seems to be the only difference.

I tapped copy, then changed to scale, went -1 then, paste in place.

That’s a good example @Danimaupin of the problem with the recordings, it doesn’t clearly show that I hit copy.

Another test, to see if this is worthwhile pursuing.

Oh my gosh, you’re so much nicer to your iPad than I am to mine.

Just waiting till the cameras are off.

Would be curious about your initial impressions of modelling on an iPad vs your computer: overall feelings / pluses / minuses etc.

And if you think it’s particularly well/ill-suited for specific types of modelling?

I’ve been very quiet here lately, been busy with some other deadline work, part of my real job.
My original trade was in stained glass, I’m a Master Craftsman among other things, I’ve branched out from it but it has always been central to what I do.
Anyway, got asked to help a friend out with four windows and I thought people might be interested to see something of what I do in the real world.
It might help explain why I’m fairly quick at drawing gothic arches.

By the way, I will get back to the ipad properly soon.

Those are pretty fly, Box. Pretty fly! I really like the plaid-looking glass in the background.

Earlier this year I began making stained glass ‘interior storm windows’ which I want to put up for added insulation. Maybe I’ll tag you when I pick the work back up… then you’ll see what a true novice is capable of ;^). Nice work.

A novice is someone on a path, they are at the beginning of a journey, they aren’t sitting on their bum saying they can’t do it. Go for it.
It just made me realise I was a novice at this about 43 years ago. I might get the hang of it one day.

Here’s a shot of part of the next panel when it was waxed up to be painted. The yellow/brown blobs are beeswax holding the individual pieces of coloured glass onto a plate of clear glass.

My late father was an artist that in the course of his career designed, if I remember right, four rather big stained glass windows, three to churches and one to a bank.
Incidentally, to me this angel has very much the resemblance to my mother

Will do. And will share.

Just as an aside, I want to do this with my mother who has some experience as a hobbyist (but hasn’t been doing it for some time). My Grandmother was pretty good. I’ll try to remember to grab some pics of her work.

Well now, I’d show you what a true novice beekeeper can do too… but all of my bees died. Twice!

Nice to have the sentimental pieces, Anssi.

A ‘like’ alone is not enough in this case. These are impressive! :heart:
