CX 7 - Custom resources - Where are the custom resources in version 7 and 7.5?

Due to changes in the Mac operating system beginning in Mac OS 10.7 (Lion), the location of custom and default resources has changed from previous versions of Design 3D CX.

Custom resources include resource libraries (textures, shapes, etc.); render and texture previews; render settings, model templates, keyboard shortcuts and scripts.

Go to this folder:

(Your user account)/Library/Application Support/CorastarInc./Strata Design 3D CX 7/.

Inside this folder you will find the Resource Libraries folder, where custom resources are stored. You can create custom folders for your own resources, for example "My Textures," which will appear in the Resources palette when you relaunch Design 3D CX. To create a custom folder, simply create a new folder and place it inside the appropriate Resource folder. You can then save custom resources to your new folder.

Because this is a little hard to find, we have added a command: Edit menu > Show Resource Folder in Finder.

This command can help you locate your custom resources, expecially in Mac OS 10.7 (Lion), where the user library folder is hidden

Default resources that ship with Design 3D CX 7 reside inside the application package, and altering or moving them is not recommended.
