A Brief Look at the Architecture of LightWave

When you install LightWave, you’ll see multiple executable files in the LightWave\ Programs\LightWave_Support directory, such as LightWav.exe (LightWave Layout), Modeler.exe (LightWave Modeler), Hub.exe on the PC, and LightWave and Modeler on the Mac. The HUB program runs automatically when you start Modeler or Layout. Once it’s running, you’ll see a small icon in your taskbar on the Windows or extensions Mac interfaces. When you right-click this icon (or press the Ctrl/Command key and click the mouse button on your Mac), you can launch it, or you can launch Layout or Modeler. The HUB is an active link between Layout and Modeler.

Tip

After you start Layout, you can simply press F12 on your keyboard to start up Modeler. From that point on, pressing F12 will switch between the two programs.
