    What is it you did at the 34 second mark – I heard you mention something about meshes and you clicked a few items in the Object Browser – What does that do?

    Tried this multiple time exactly as described. When I click the second point, I get an error beep and the objects do not bridge. The first click changes the point to blue, but when I click on the point on the second object, I get a beep and a message in the lower left (after “Status:”) that says “select points on boarder.” By the way, the word should be spelled “border” and not “boarder.” Not sure what I am doing wrong… I am following the tutorial exactly. My version of Cheetah is 6.3.

      Bridge can be a little temperamental – sometimes it does this for me too. When that happens I opt for the create polygon tool – in point mode, control click to get create polygon then click 4 points counter clockwise and a polygon will be created that fills the gap.

    Hi Dave,

    I just purchase Cheetah 3d 6.3. Hope you can help me on making tread or rope in this version. There is rope icon under tag command. I appreciated if you can show me how to use this icon. If you have another way of doing it please you don’t mind to share it with me. Thanks

        Hi Dave,

        I am so thankful for your link. I will try to practice it. I know there are so much to learn.

        Hi Dave,

        It’s me again. I check the link you gave me and I try to follow the tutorial from Frank Beckmann. It is easy, but the only one I missed was the script of Patched Helix which I don’t have or how to do it. Also I just want to ask you if you know how to put the script in Cheetah 3d. Sorry to asked so many things. I am so interested to learn this program and I believed you are the expert. Thanks for your big help.
