  2. upload your creation to the 123D gallery anytime between July 9th and August 5th, 2012

Hey! I managed to edit mine down!!! And find the link to it afterwards!
Not perfect, but not bad for 23 shots, the area where it is most broken, I couldn't properly reach, and there was a strong silouette effect from the sun.
Good first try, if not a little frustrating! I am impressed with the software that the software is running on, interfacing needs work, but feedback'll help.


Thanks @jessyratfink for all her patience and help
(I'll chatter the ear off of a head of corn, and she was really nice about it all)
found the new address,
but it looks like just an image is there now, I do not get this.
Oh I feel for you... lol...

Now I know why I didn't go ahead with this challenge... Its too challenging...
I am not sure whether or not I have tagged mine correctly. public and art come up as two seperate tags. rather than public art, should it be public-art or publicart?
Confusing. I did some more edits, and appear to have lost it again. If it insists on saving as a new file, why is the old one gone. sigh. not sure if the link is still good, can't find my own model.
ARRGGGHHH! Where do they go? Why do they become just an image after you hit save. it is so scary. feels like all my work has vaporized. Nothing, not in the gallery and when I click it in my corner it just shows me an image.......nothing....what?

would anyone like to help me with my project (newbie)
if interested, more info is on this link

I just wanted to bump this request for help. This member is having some problems completing the challenge, so if anyone is able to give some pointers or help, I'm sure rptech would be very appreciative.

He's linked to his question from the Q & A as well for more info.
I can't find the model, it is available to look at on the 123d site? I sorta figured mine out, maybe I could have a peek. I haven't downloaded any software, I used the online app for mine.
