The end result looks good. And thank you for the background words.

I also really like the result, I think it's great if someone can do it. I have a technician in my family who is currently working with Auto-Cad that looked complicated to me. :-)

Yeah, I used to work with AutoCad too many years ago ( in rare cases even today to maintain old 2d drawings) . Nowadays I work mainly with Autodesk Inventor (which is by the eay much easier to use and way more powerful).

Extremely well done.
Thanks for sharing the background history and your personal information.

Good work, and very interesting. I worked with AutoCad eons ago at Boeing.

That keytar actually looks great to me! You did a super job on the modeling and texturing, good sir. I'm even more amazed you managed this in Hexagon. I played with it a couple years ago, but I got so disgusted with it crashing constantly, I delete it and never used it again. I really want to spend some time with Blender, but every time I think I'll have a day or 2 to sit down with it something else happens (I'm currently reshuffling files and external HD's from my backup / distribution server that rolled over and died yesterday. Now I have some doink trying to clone my FB page.
Anyway, I think you did a great job on this!

Yup! Hexagon crashes a lot, that‘s why I would like Daz to do a little more maintenance on all their purchased programs (be it Hexagon, Carrara or even Bryce). That would help a lot more than giving them just away for free. Especially since non of these programs is a direct competition to their DAZ Studio and the Hexagon Bridge (and Bryce bridge) build in DAZ Studio are extremely convenient (I‘d love to have a Bridge to Carrara as well).
Well, I simply don‘t get warm with the user interface of blender. Otherwise I certainly would have looked into it as well. Hexagon would be a great program and UV mapping (and unfolding the mesh) is so easy to do, I would be a real fun - if it wouldn‘t crash so often in the modeling process.
About the Keytar: This is a still untexturized state because I’m not yet finished modeling and UV mapping makes no sense as long as you‘re still modeling. Maybe I got to clean up the mesh as well before UV mapping and unfolding, to not get simply a bunch of triangles floating around in the UV view.
Oh, it’s always a hassle If a computer dies. Wish you good luck in recovering the files.

I always recall the original tune by the Beatles. cool instrument though.

Hey, Steve Thanks for the correction! I didn‘t know, the original was from the beatles I just knew the Version from Toto, which by the way I like better than the original

I agree, there are good and bad side of this whole Covid Apocalypse. I hope that you're doing well my friend. Stay safe!
