Something Dicey This Way Comes.

Sounds like the name of a bad movie doesn't it?

This month's tutorial was inspired by a challenge posed in the Xara Conference regarding how to create a dice with rounded corners. The answer is there are two ways, the easy way, and this month's tutorial :-)

The easy way, of course, is to create it in Xara 3D 3 (as shown here). Total time, minutes. The hard way, you shall discover as you work your way through the 27 illustrated steps to create a glass dice.

I was thinking that since there are so many tutorials available for semi-experienced and experienced readers, that I would create some simple beginner tutorials to help all the new owners of Xara (or Corel Xara to make the law dogs in Ottawa happy). And this tutorial was to be the first. Yeah, right!

How do you feel about sharing some easier tutorials with the newbies? It would help grow the Xara user base, and you more experienced readers can go back and redo some of the earlier tutorials. Let me know when you get to the Feedback Page.

 

Did you know that Xara 3D 3.04 can now import Xara 2 XAR and Webster 2 WEB files? Well it can. CLICK HERE to learn more or to upgrade your current version!
