Thanks, yes. We're on the same paths. :) Very cool - I love what you've done so
far and exited to see the boolean stuff. I'm using naming conventions to handle
some of POV's objects like lathes, sweeps, and blobs. I'll need to download C4D.
I'm impressed with Blender, it's tools and the speed of Eevee rendering. Add
