It has already reached the new issue of AUGI World, with very interesting content, such as working with SketchUp, first steps with .NET and some with Revit.
It has drawn my attention a kind of analogy made by Mark Kiker, regarding a destination choice suited to the election of a CAD tool. Although its orientation is more to design a destination than the sale of an existing target, I think it’s a great article, I assume that someday toolmakers will have raised the same. For the case, if it would be a tourist destination, the fact is how to offer a traveler a choice of a not longer path than the time it will stay there where the three-day’s satisfactions outweigh the savings of 6 months, where extras that offered other alternatives are not missed, and above all the experience I such that worth recommending it not only for pride but for being able to repeat it again.
Do not tell whether it is a destination to live, work or produce, the approach is interesting, especially if applied because although the document appears to be generic for any CAD platform, some level of bias cannot be denied by the use of clichés and their relationship with the brand.
- Solid Standard. Does a solid format, well thought needs to be changed every 2,375 years? Then we could say that because the speedraptor named shapefile is used, then it should be the standard.
- Update Software. Are we talking about liposuction of even years or the changing makeup of odd years? It would be nice if it would not require doubling the use of equipment and the crazy way of knowing which version of dwg we are receiving from a client.
- Learning environment. Totally agree, mass AutoCAD has a great advantage in reducing the learning curve, other less popularized must battle stronger with this.
- Feedback. Yes, but the wish list is very long always.
- Have a large tool belt. Terrible!
- Support Team. Okay, AutoDesk support is not bad, because someone is almost always near or on the web there are many willing to help.
- Sharing is valued. Who appreciates, how much has it been evaluate? … Oh, they refer to a pat on the back, I agree.
- Do not settle for being good, but be the best. Disagree, but I do not want to skew. Software is not the best for being the most common, we all remember Microsoft with its braying that Windows quality was guaranteed by the market share that bought their software.
- The money doesn’t matter. Man, even when you’re in honeymoon, that love knows no mortgage, money INDEED matters in relation to the return on investment.
Apart from that, I recommend reading this AUGI World issue, which complements the diversity of educational resources for AutoCAD users provided by technicians that freely return to the community the best of their experiences. If not they have registered, it’s worth doing.
