Hey all,

I am just learning the software Vivian from Cast Software.

I am having 1 issues i just cannot figure out how to resolve.

The event i am trying to work on is in a tent, but neither of the default "tents" match what i am looking to do, as its a double center pole tent.

So i figured, he i would just free hand draw the room, shouldnt be that hard.

So i got the floor, the lower section of the walls, and the tent poles.

I got to trying to do the ceiling/connection to the lower walls (the angled section that goes into the middle poles) and i just cannot figure out how to angle the walls.

It keeps drawing them straight up and down, or flat.

Does anyone know how to do this?

help would be appreciated.

Josh

you might want to try to draw a series of curves and connect the triangles that it makes into a surface. You might have better luck drawing the tent in autoCAD/vectorworks/sketch up and them import that drawing into vivian.

Sketch-up, Sketch-up, it's so easy and it's free ! Hey somebody put that to music and sell it to them as a jingle !! Hey it kinda fits the slinky jingle. Just being goofy. I've never used Vivien. I think I'll download the 90 MB trial version and see what it looks like.
