Hey Doctor; All of a sudden I'm reminded of the old Console MicroStation workstations of about fifteen years ago. You might be too young to have seen them. IIRC they were about the size of a young Entertainment Center. Seems like they had two monitors sitting side by side above the keyboard and tablet input.

Indeed James. I'm one of the fortunate ones in my office. I get razzed by my co-workers by having two monitors, but I'll take it. Between ArcGIS, Microstation, and now AutoCAD Civil3D, it is definitely a "must have". Dave D.

I need a third monitor. Ive completely filled my second with tool bars and would like more room. My next monitor will have higher resolution.

Hi Scott, I have an otherwise useless lap top which I use as another monitor for handling email and other trivial tasks, freeing up space for serious stuff on the working computer. In my fantasy office I have: Civil 3D - one screen for plan graphics Software toolbars, menus etc.and Veign Note*It - in general one screen Advanced Road Design - one screen for current profile Advanced Road Design - one screen for non-current profiles Another for Email etc. I'm starting on neck and multi focus eye exercises real soon now. -- Laurie Comerford CADApps www.cadapps.com.au "Scott Wolfe" wrote in message news:8765289.1100290800741.JavaMail.jive@jiveforum2.autodesk.com... > I need a third monitor.

My guess is that pretty soon we may have thin film flexible screens which you can "wallpaper" onto your desktop and place and move views wherever you like on it. Sort of be like papers all over your desk. (Just like the old days !!) Doug Boys

That's an interesting vision. Sounds kinda' like that movie "Red Planet". They had film stuff like that too that had digital maps on them. Seems kinda' far off though.

I envision the monitors being replaced with 3d, VR-type goggles that the user would wear. That way you can "look" at whatever screen you want to focus on by simply turning your head a few degrees up or down. You could also make each screen as large or small as you'd like.

I would think that's do-able in the near future and it seems that it would be cheaper and a lot less cumbersome than a gang of monitors.

I would think that the only thing that needs to be developed is an interface between the existing goggle technology and the CAD system.
