                               MAKING BACKUPS

    PLEASE NOTE THAT, ALTHOUGH UNPROTECTED, THIS DISK IS PRODUCED IN AN
 EXPANDED 80 TRACK FORMAT (TWISTER).  IT CAN'T BE COPIED WITH THE STANDARD
 TOS DISK COPIER.  IF YOU ARE COPYING ALL THE FILES TO ANOTHER SINGLE-SIDED
 DISK, IT MUST BE FORMATED WITH TWISTER OR ANY OTHER EXPANDED FORMAT
 PROGRAM THAT PROVIDES 400K.  Of course, you can simply drag the folders
 and files onto the disk(s) individually if you don't have an expanded
 format program or a double sided drive.  See your ST manual if you are not
 familiar with this process. If you are working with one disk drive this
 can be a tedious procedure requiring many disk swaps, it would be far
 easier to format a disk in the expanded format.  Or buy a fast sector
 copier, like Pro-Copy, from Proco Products (800) 843-1223.  (Twister is
 available on CompuServe's 16-bit Atari forum and in the STart back issue
 library (Spring, 1987)).

                  FILE CONVERSION FOR USE WITH CAD-3D 1.0

 CAD .3D/.3D2 CONVERSION PROGRAM

 All of the object files on this disk are in the new CAD-3D 2.0 file
 format. If you are using CAD-3D 1.0 you will need to convert these files
 back to the older file format with the CONV3D.PRG program included on your
 disk.

 This program is very easy to use:

 1. Place the program on a blank formatted disk along with the files that
 you wish to convert. Make sure that there is plenty of space on the disk.
 The original files are not deleted, and the .3D files that are created are
 a little larger than the .3D2s.  Your disk should be less than half full
 (about 40%) when you start.

 2. Double-Click on CONV3D.PRG

 3. Double-Click on the filename of the .3D2 file you wish to convert.  A
 new file with the same filename, and a .3D extender, will be written to
 your disk.

 4. The program will alert you when the conversion is complete.  You may
 then choose to continue (click on MORE), or exit (click EXIT) back to the
 desktop.

                        NOTES ON MEMORY CONSTRAINTS

      For those who own the old CAD-3D 1.0 and a 1/2 Meg machine, certain
 compromises will be apparent in loadable file sizes and/or maximum size of
 object lists, faces and vertice counts.

      For those with CAD-3D 2.0 and 1 Meg machines, it will be necessary to
 disable all desk accessories (including CAD-3D accessories) in order to
 make enough room for a whole skeletal model to load into CAD at once. The
 eaisiest method is to change the filename extenders (i.e. CYBSMASH.ACC --
 to -- CYBSMASH.ACX), then re-boot. This does not mean that you can't
 animate an entire skeletal model on screen at once, as you'll see below.








           HUMAN DESIGN -- A CAD-3D 2.0 ACCESSORY DISK -- Page 3


 Example motion control scripts are included on this disk that do animate
 the entire skeleton using the CYBER CONTROL animation language (Available
 from ANTIC Software/The Catalog).

      The two full skeletal models -- male and female -- have been split
 into three files each.  This makes it possible to load parts of the
 skeletal models into CAD-3D 1.0/half-Meg systems  or 2.0 when desk
 accessories are installed.

 Two detailed unjoined models of the human hand are included in seperate
 files for the same reasons.

 Included on the disk, are two highly simplified models of the human
 skeleton (WATCHGUY.3D2 and WATCHGAL.3D2).  These, together with the files,
 MANJOINT.3D2 and several files with a "CTL" filename extender, are
 included to facilitate animation.  Darrel Anderson has developed a special
 system that takes advantage of the hierarchical motion control supported
 by CYBER CONTROL.

 The ".CTL" files contain clearly-commented code that describe the very
 special techniques required to animate this highly complex model.
 However, it will be necessary to read the CYBER CONTROL documentation and
 go through the set of tutorials first before jumping into creating your
 own animations of this complexity.

                         COMMENTS FROM THE DESIGNER

      Some of the things I imagine doing with these models fall roughly
 into two categories (with a good measure of overlap): the artistic,
 perhaps the most obvious of the two, and the engineering/scientific.

      Artistically, with these scaleable, moveable models, one should be
 able to create virtually any angled camera perspective for figure work and
 composition. Add this to the fact that these models can be saved as
 picture files, and then loaded into DEGAS ELITE, NEO or SPECTRUM 512, the
 skeleton armatures should gussy up nicely.  One can traipse into CAD-3D's
 animation and voila! Videos! Fantastique! ETC.!

      On the tech side, human parameters design (or, human factors) seems
 an obvious choice for fooling around with the models in CAD-designed
 spaces -- before committing to construction of those spaces!, (i.e.,
 cockpits, boat cabins, consoles, etc.).

      Serious fiddling and improving on the models could lead to some solid
 exploration in prosthetic design.

      It should be mentioned here that while in art it's obvious from the
 getgo that the models are to be modified (for aesthetic purposes; possibly
 structural for sculpture), it should be just as true here; a podiatrist
 may want to get right on those feet, that I designed only generally, and
 realize them more fully; not in a paint program but in CAD-3D.  In other
 words, altering and redesigning is as an appropriate and wonderful use of
 the models as animation or anything else -- THIS IS A 3D ACCESSORY DISK;
 SMACK THE THINGS INTO DIFFERENT STUFF!  [Editors note:  How about houses
 with arms that open the doors for you?]

      To help on this score, Darrel Anderson's advanced modeling tips,
 published in the manual for CAD-3D 2.0, make the impossible, possible; his
 "FUTURE DESIGN" disk is poetry in CAD.

      I've also included a bibliography of some good anatomy texts.

      I should like to acknowledge, with sincere gratitude, the long
 suffering Gary Yost for his unrecriminative patient persistence.  Tom
 Hudson for the brilliance of his inventions.  My wife, Sheila Berry, for
 liking me anyway. And finally this thing's dedicated to Darrel Anderson
 for getting me into and out of trouble... A lot.
