Title: Mayfair
Post by: the cad man on October 08, 2014, 06:42:04 PM
Hi everyone,
Just downloaded a trial of 2015.
Wow, a steep learning curve as I have to unlearn all my previous knowledge and start like a Newbie again...frustrating!
Here's my first play at rendering using a supplied sample design; The Mayfair.
I like the room drop-in capabilities...makes designing the layout very fast and easy.
I like the new rendering speed...but the lack of variety of output/export file options may see me return to the older software.
(Collada or skp would be nice)

Hi Gaz,

Nice house!
TFP,  as any program, has a learning curve. The best way to learn the program, IMO, is practice + practice + practice => Read and follow the manual (this is important), see the videos => try to create elements not related with your project, so you will become familiar with the commands and how to develop the different components.
If you are interested to learn the program, check my e-books (links are below, in my signature), one of them is free.

Gaz,

No problem!  :)

Of course, if you have questions, just post them at the Forum: I'll be glad to help.
In addition, if you have a special project and you need to export it to VRML, just let me know and I will export it for you.

    Cadman :

                        Well, considering you're new to TFP 2015, you've got a good start.  I tried the "new" TFP, but, the project never did turn out that great....kinda cartoonish.  Where as Personal Architect gave the same  (fantastic) result as version 16 of TFP.   No offense.
