NEUHAUS LIGHTING

Festival Concept

Just having a little fun today.  Playing around with easy festival lighting ideas.  Only requirement is that it fits on a 40x40 roof.  I think this would work.  It really depends on how many band members you have.  The walls are Cobra panels from Element Labs.    I have never used them before but I think they would work well in this application.  The rest

It is also a lot of fun to play with in google earth.

Rotate Truss Such a novel idea

So, I have been checking out the new version of Vectorworks 2009. I really like it. Anyway, after reading the message boards today I have realized that there is a new feature. At least new to me.

Vectorworks 2009

I have been waiting to update vectorworks from the day I got my last copy. I liked the last copy but I was not thrilled with the rendering engine. I really don't know what really changes with the Parasolid rendering but I can't wait to see. Right now as we speak Vectorworks is installing of my laptop and then we will install it on the desktop and really start doing some drawing. Check back at
