< How is it going using the tablet with MoI?
Like a dream :)
And when the pen has a clicable button it's quasy perfect!
Quasy because the Zoom wheel mouse function ist a little bit to emulate :)
(maybe with the inkey arrow)
+ and - seems used for input numeric mesures

I don't think that + is, but - definitely is. This is so if for example you're drawing a line, you can type "-5,2" to place a point at that coordinate directly.

When you type that coordinate value, your keystrokes will show up in the coordinate value entry area in the bottom toolbar, just to the right of the Split/3D/Top/Front/Right view controls.

In fact Zoom with a pen (with clicable button as mouse right clic emulate) is not truely a problem :)
As a pen graphic don't need realy touch the tablett
You rotate your object in the space (clicable pen button pressed) flying your pen over the tablet
on go on the Zoom Icon (screen bottom) disable the pen clic button and you can zoom easily :)

More confortable than a mouse :)

Ps the loops were made because I have taken the option
Draw Curve / Free Form/ Sketch and not "Throught Points"
So "loopings" can be easy created without my control due the micro pen movments :)

Yes, that's definitely something that you should watch for.

But in this case, it sure looks like those loops are the result of an offset operation that has a large offset distance in an area of tighter curvature. I think maybe the main shape was created by doing a shell of the outside surface to give it thickness? Doing a shell involves creating an offset surface, if the offset distance is large in an area where the surface has a tight bend in it, then it can cause the offset to fold over on itself like you have here.

Right :)
< then it can cause the offset to fold over on itself like you have here
Right again :)
So we must see in Zoom the curves befor some booleans functions:)
So how increase the transparency? :)

Maybe clean your monitor screen? :)

That's the easiest way for me, anyway :)

Seriously, though - you can adjust the intensity of the hidden edges if you would like them to be more pronounced.

In the moi.ini file, find the [Hidden lines] section, it has this available:

HiddenLineOpacity=34

This can be a number between 0 (totally transparent) and 255 (totally opaque). A higher number will make the hidden edges easier to see, but if they become too prominent they can interfere with your depth perception of the object, that's why they are set to pretty faint by default.

Ok for the edges lines :) Usefull if you want not hidden line (=0)
But it's not also possible to play on the light for the colors of Shadow's surfaces?
Dark black is now a face in the "max shadow" :)

No, there isn't currently any option to modify this.

I tried to reduce this problem somewhat by having a kind of double-ended light. If you draw a sphere, you can see that half of the sphere is not black, there is a front lit part, and the opposite side of that is also lit, with a band of dark only around the middle.

This helps keep things from getting too totally dark, but it can still be a problem in some models and at some angles.

I eventually do want to have it set up so you can switch between several different lighting options, but probably there will just be the current one for the V1 release.
