@Runnie, You are really direct, which I like a lot. I do think Rhinoceros needs to improve UI, perhaps entirely if I suggest only I compare Rhinoceros to every single goody shown in other software. However, I disagree some options you’ve suggested. Actually I didn’t read them all. I stopped when you talked about Wacom tablet. Rhinoceros is not built for artist, it’s built for builders. Why bother if you are capable of using diverse software? Getting rid of command typing is RIDICULOUS. I don’t know how many people around you even use Rhinoceros, but I guarantee that very small number of people will prefer your “idea.” Unlike feature improvement, UI is a complete different story. You should have known that different people have different taste. You don’t like cad looking interface, but there some others do. I’m not trying to against you. In fact, I don’t really care what Rhinoceros UI looks like as long as I can easily adapt into it. What is more important is what Rhinoceros is capable of. I guess you use AD products not because of their UIs right?
I assume that you posted something like this is because you were from AD software or have more experience on that side, which I totally understand.
My question is what is the point? Those are selfish “wishes” unless you can provide strong reasons to change or improve?? Like, a ton of people are suffering because of lack of development? Plus, I think Mcneel goes for what industries ask for, not for hobbyists like us. So, I would zip my mouth unless something really bugs me a lot. In addition, why not providing solid evidences that you or others need certain features?
As one of Rhinoceros contributors (Sorry, I started using Rhinoceros before V5 released, during late V4. One semester lab+summer or winter time, perhaps one thing I regret about my life is that I knew Rhinoceros too late), what we can do before asking features is buying license, spread Rhinoceros to your circles, or even reporting a bug?
Or like me, talk to a SW guy saying SW sucks after showing a model made by Rhinoceros?
I don’t know. After getting support from Mcneel members mostly (Mcneel Asia), it’s all about appreciation at least to me. This will last FOREVER.
And thank GOD, @Asterisk at least you didn’t list your company in your profile, it would be really embarrassing if I got hired at your place.
