My thought here was that there is in fact something sexy about a hand-drawn rendering much as there is something very convincing about a photorealistic rendering. I think they both have their merits and appropriate application.

Just so I am clear because I have been misunderstood here twice already, I think it would be better to soften the model AFTER it is produced not before it is imported from PC.

I have never used squiggle myself but think there are some applications clients or situations where it might be appropriate. And I agree that any decent architect should be able to visualize whether hardline or soft. But MANY clients, untrained in visualization or those that it doesn;t caome natural to CANNOT read drawings. I happen to work for a building full of non architects that cannot and know many people that cannot visualize. Why would we have 3d software if everyone could visualize a 2d drawing?

I will try the method you suggest Kevin just out of curiosity. I had sort of hoped it would be a tool in DW that could be used. Once the pict file isproduced there is no way PC will translate a pict and squiggle (ok, soften it!)

Lastly I am not saying this is a must for me but I thought it might be an option that could appropriately be applied in certain, not all, instances. Perhaps the post should have emphasized a hand-drawn yet accurate "look" not squiggled which perhaps suggests inaccuracies...oh well.

Guess I will get back to work now....sometimes wondering why I take the time to bring these things up! lol
