casting - lathe quick change gear box

What CAD program is that? (I suspect AutoCAD, based on your input in Mantis). I use Alibre Design Personal Edition, the lowest tier of three. It is now owned by 3D Systems. They have changed the branding of it. The upper 2 tiers are known as "Geomagic Design" and the lowest tier (old Personal Editi...

Re: pocket on wrong section?

But when you have to forget about, and unlearn another CAD system as you are learning FC, well it is a lot h...

Re: sketch edit doesn't update the pocket???

Of course it worked out great. Thanks. What I've learned... Use refine shape at the very end. "Refine shape" becomes a new feature in the tree. Can I delete after using it without a reversion?

Re: How do I load a backup file e.g. *.FCStd4

You're asking the wrong person now. I don't know anything about those things. I've seen the word *mime* used before, but I sure don't know what it means. Sorry.

Re: How do I load a backup file e.g. *.FCStd4

If the system would just accept the backup file extension then everyone would be happy. Triplus could keep working the way he does and be happy. Yorik could keep working the way he does and be happy. I could *start* working the way I want to and I would be ecstatic. (well... happy :D )
