Bobh,  The Jeremy Birn book is very well known - a good choice and I am sure that you will pick up a lot from it.

I already am - thanks, PhilW.  And by the way, I’ve also purchased both of your Infinite Skills tutorial sets.  Excellent “hit the ground running” stuff, hopefully I will get good enough to actually need the advanced set.

Good man!  wink  The first set is more about the individual features, while the “Advanced” set goes more into modelling and working on specific projects, so you should be able to dip in and out as you see fit, once you have the basics under your belt.  Actually I wanted to call it “Carrara Projects” rather than “Advanced Carrara”, but Infinite Skills made the final decision on that!

I tend to read the software product manuals, which are good at showing how to navigate around the interface and find features, but are usually bad or weak at showing practical use of the features. I appreciated going through the project based approach Phil uses in the ‘Advance Carrara’ tutorial set.

Hahahaha - right on queue.  I was wondering what kind of fire that would draw - I was almost able to set my watch by this one.  LOL wink

Exactly. Someone posts nonsense, and luckily there’s someone around to make the correction. You’re welcome.
