What is the procedure for adding plates to an ASD model when the plates are not circular and not square?
also . . . the attached screen shot shows my default dialog box when I activate the plates command in ASD modeling ribbon. It always defaults to a 10" plate, no matter how many times I insert a plate. Also the dialog box only seems to recognize / default whole numbers, 1,2,3 etc, no decimals.
I suspect this has something to do with inch to millimeter conversion(s). Anybody have any ideas?
Please, you must read the manual. It has all the answers to your questions and more!
