    Josephus reacted to Andrew West in test render window?   
    Sure.  I assume you are trying to use V-ray to render a region.  In that case you hit the render button and the v-ray render window opens automatically and starts rendering.  Just stop the render and then at the top menu bar there is another little Teapot with a red little icon  next to it.  That is the render region button.  click on it and then draw a rectangle around the area you want rendered.

    Josephus got a reaction from Jaakko in Object pallette - active object   
    Is there a way for the Objects palette list to automatically scroll to an object that is selected?  Right now the only way to change the object visibility etc is to right click on the object, select attributes, then select/deselect what I need.  Would be a lot faster if the (open) Objects palette would automatically scroll to the selected object and there deselect visibility, etc

    As per Shibui's description, use the join in the Edit palette.
     
    But unless the points of the shape are planer, it won't automatically create a surface.
    I've list a few methods among many below for non-planer surfaces. Assuming the wire edges are all joined to one object.
     
    1. "Cover Wire" tool in the "Derive 3" palette which will make a smooth surface. This can then be converted to a nurbs surface if you want.
    2. "Nurbs by boundary curve tool".
    3. Facetted surface by using the "triangulate tool" using your preferred triangulation option.
    4. "Cap tool" in the Derive 3 palette.
     
    There are other ways depending on what you want.
     
    Hope this helps,

    Just realized there are two join tools. You want to use the one on the EDIT palette, not the ORGANIZE palette.

    If your geometry is not already a surface, i.e. a collection of lines, arcs, polylines, etc. then you can simply use the "join" tool. Select all objects and apply "join." All endpoints of lines, etc. must be coincident in order for this tool to work.

    I am not sure what you are trying to do but  closed 2d geometry is by definition a surface.  Could you post a screen shot or the actual model piece to examine?
