Hi, sorry if the question have already been answered, but is there any way to use this extension in meters instead of feet?
> 1. Adding more an more functionality to products was making them larger and larger. They are plenty big already.
The products are getting too big, so the solution is to require customers to buy and install a bunch of other bloated software just to get new features that they are already paying for with their existing subscription contracts? I don't follow the logic...
If you are using Microsoft Word and need to add two numbers, you need Microsoft Excel. Microsoft did not add spreadsheet capabilities to Word. Instead they sell Word and Excel together as Microsoft Office. You may only need addition today, but because you get Excel, tomorrow you may find yourself taking advantage of the rest of what Excel has to offer.
That would make sense, if Civil 3D wasn't Autodesk's flagship civil engineering design application. To use a more correct version of your analogy, it would be as if I only owned Excel, but Microsoft decided to include the "addding of two numbers" functionality only in some new application called "Numerical Modeler" which would be included in the newest version of Office. Sure, I could buy Microsoft Office to save some money over buying the two applications separately, and sure, I could get all of the extra functionality that comes with Office, but that doesn't really help me with my spreadsheets, does it?
Placing that capability in some fancy new application and including it in a suite would send the wrong message to Excel customers. All it would do is reinforce everything negative that those users had ever heard about Microsoft.
I have the same problem.
When I start my calculation I recive the same massage as you.
Have you managed to fix the error?
Looks like the speculations were on point…. It just went ®2014 IDSU….
I just consolidated all of our licensing across north America 2 months ago, now to find out I need to upgrade some of our suites from IDSP to IDSU so I can still run the River Analyst Module that I’ve been beta testing for years now… Fun…I'm sure my IT Manger and CFO will love to hear that...
Would have been nice if the sales team at Autodesk eluded me to that fact that this change was definitly coming, rather than finding out 2 months after I've made a major upgrade…
I feel your pain, but resellers are usually not informed about these kinds of things and if they are, it's very close to the release date and even then, the plans cannot be discussed publicly. Publicly traded compnay issues and all.
Good Point, however I was negotiating a large purchase and Autodesk was directly involved as was our reseller…. But you are correct, the whole publicly traded company aspect probably does limit them to what they can share… (but a hint would have been nice…) I’ll take it w/ a grain of salt…
I'm just happy it's finally built into a suite and will be supported as such. The beta version had some serious issues both messing up other features and instability issues. I'm hopeful those are all ironed out in the 2014 version...
