Default 9.0 question for Mez

Michael, is it easier to toolpath a bitmap texture than it was in 3.5? Tim Merrill used to walk me through it & it had more steps than a Mayan pyramid. I never did conquer it without my notes, which I subsequently lost.
I'm getting really sick of sandblasting, although after firing several hundred pounds of Nepheline Syenite through the air at high velocity, one can scratch one's arse merely by going for a brisk walk...... handsfree!
Seriously, I'm thinking about upgrading ........
Any seminars slated for mid-winter?

Ron, from early November until Orthodox Christmas I really can't go anywhere. Columbus is fairly close too.....

TR,
Sorry for the delayed response......I just saw this.
There are no seminars scheduled for mid winter,,at the moment,,,
As for the tool pathing,,,It should be about the same..
Import your image.
Make sure the image is selected.
Click on the "Create component from Bitmap" icon..( Top row )
Voila....

One option is to first click on the icon, which the program will then ask you to locate the image, from your computer. It's been told that this is the better way.

Michael
