      I'm surprised you're using Lightwave.You do arch-viz stuff too right?

      Seems like everyones using Max but I just can't get use to that ugly UI.lol

      I'm really contemplating giving Modo a try out though, the latest version looks like it kicks ass and it's built in render seems to be pretty decent.

      I started with Lightwave back in '92 and just kept with it. The rendering and surfacing is MUCH cleaner and easier to use than Max. I have Max, but hate it. Still, I should probably use it more in order to get proficient in it, too.





      Most of what I have to do is quick, 3 hour turnarounds on proposals for presentations, so I dont get a lot of time to do a lot of details.
      I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.

      I also use Google SketchUp. Here's a few models I drew for Google Earth.

      interesting.

      I'm an architecture student too and its all revit/autocad/3ds/rhino/maya/sketchup. vray also makes plugins for most of them as well.
      the industry is all going to revit and has been autocad based for centuries. I find it interesting that they have you using archicad...
