    Good to hear that I am not alone in trying that!

    Hey Jack! Which one of those guys is you in that picture?

    Joe, Didn't try to do it on your pic, BUT constantly try to do it when TJ gives classes Coming along very nice indeed! Can picture in Mind's eye coming out of a tunnel in the Rockies! How is Aspire at doing perspective? Good work.

    Thanks, Perspective can be done for sure. The thing is you have to pick the perspective you want in the beginning and be aware of the draft between the work you want the viewer to see and the back of the wood/metal/plastic. For example a handrail will look like a shelf rather than a tube protruding, traversing, and re-entering. So the choices are to undercut by hand post CNC or leave it and allow the eye to 'infer details' like its a handrail not a shelf.

    You can 'tilt' and fade the relief components to some degree. Which modifies the appearance of the shelf we were talking about before. But you will always be tricking the eye to some extent. If you design the relief from a 3/4 perspective it will have a 3/4 perspective. It is after all only a relief and not an actual 3D model.

    Hope this helps.

    Yes it does Joe. Thanks. Just wondering how much Aspire did for you compared to the warping we do in VCP to get perspective in 2D.

    I had some time to work on this today.
    This is a new set of trucks for one of the cars.
    The rail is a quick throw away for aesthetics.

    Model is 23" x 8".

    The truck looks good, just need to lighten up a little on the wheel flange. Russ

    Jack, If so, Then I acknowledge Russ as the master of the blue foam/paint brush universe. Russ, How about a pic of you holding it above your head with one hand?
