@dan: So, been thinking (for longer than anyone wants to know) that it would be really, really, REALLY HELPFUL to be able to at least be able to draw a selection loop of desired entities. Limiting selections to a basic rectangular drag window is, well… a real drag.
Just one of those boring little details that would make MacRhino more attractive to those who have to do grownup things every now and again.
Until this wondrous day (a not-too-distant WIP, perhaps?), we’ll just keep partying like it’s 1999…
i think the first 3d cad tool, even with a fancy light pen.
Ivan Sutherland’s Sketchpad console, 1962. Sketchpad is operated with a light pen and a command button box (under left hand). The four black knobs below the screen control position and scale of the picture.
