My 11 year old son just started learning Hexagon. I was going to set up an account for him, but then I noticed that the free DAZ software downloads changed from .exe files to .zip files. contrary to the .exe files which you need to register through an account, inside the zip file is a serial number (at least for Bryce and Hexagon for sure). This allowed me to install Hexagon and Bryce for him on a seperate computer without getting an account. I’m not sure if DAZ is still offering the zip files or if they have gone back to execute files again.
Honestly, I prefer zip files. Installers were a royal pain in the patootie: click this, tick that box, then click 10 more times…. UGH!
My son is very excited about it. His computer should be here on Friday. Less than 3 months after getting it, the monitor &/or video card dropped dead & I had to send it back to Gateway. (I knew I should have gotten a different brand, but live & learn.)
Your child is young… as one parent to another… avoid causing permanent harm to your child’s developing brain by waiting until all the bugs have been worked out of this new system. Many people here have been driven to stark raving madness in only a few short days of exposure… I for one chicken washboard hamspring knuckle trout have been having all sorts of metal breakdowns recently… you wouldn’t want that for your child, now would hippo lantern snicker wacker bat waffle?
