Hi Mark,

Some pointers on illustrator. First, save your files as version 8 (or earlier), rather than Illustrator version 9. Adobe changed some things in version 9 that don't play well with Invig.

Second... there are two ways to create rings versus capped cylinders. If you want a ring wall without thickness, you've discovered that you can turn off front and back faces in Invigorator. Great.

If you want cylinders with thickness to the walls, the suggestion about using "outline path" in Illustrator is correct. Here's the detail.

Create a circle in Illustrator. Make it a couple of inches across, just for grins. Choose fill: none and use any color to apply a stroke to the object. Think of the thickness of the stroke as becoming the thickness of your wall... adjust the stroke thickness as you desire, then use the comand: outline path. This creates a solid, filled object that's essentially a ring.

Import this into Invig and you'll have it made. Do some more experimenting and let us know how it goes.

Jon
