Are you still doing those in Daz Robert? and have you checked out the latest update , there is a nifty plugin that links Photoshop into the Daz texture manager, and improved lights .. i used it to do the artwork for the pilots , rendered a tif
of Victorias face and one of her back for background .. does a nice job ...fast Wink

All the gauge faces for the Thorp were modeled in Gmax, and I used the lighting in Gmax...then grabbed a capture of the screen and used it in PSP to make the final bitmaps. The gauge glass is a separate part, and when the vc is done I'll be able to create a custom bitmap for the reflections on the glass... Smiley

I still have Daz, but I have not used it for a long time.

Daz is a tool that is worth updating , the quality of its render engine is remarkable and as it imports and exports .obj formats and the uvw map information can be added
with other mappers that offer more options than 3DS make it a valuable tool in producing heads and or panel and gauge renders and mapped objects with rendered textures for input into Gmax and 3DS .

Many thanks for the comments!  Smiley

I've taken the stock Garmin GPS295 and made a case & mount for it. It's visibility is controlled by the GPS toggle switch on the panel to allow access to the switches it hides  Cheesy
