because of plotting? What does that mean?

 

LT is cheap in comparison to the rest of the AutoCAD line. What I was talking about is more people care to be "autoCAD" users, even with LT, over something else that a customer of theirs using AutoCAD might trigger an embarrasing warning about possible file compatibility and authenticity. Branding is a force that cannot be ignored.

 

Judging by the overwhelming posts in these forums, and experiences at Reseller events, AutoCAD 'shows', AUGI Camps and more, many (dare I say most) AutoCAD users don't can or want to know about APIs, Lisp, ARX or much else. I dare say they would find LT just as useful as they would use AutoCAD.

 

Not everyone cares to learn AutoCAD beyond drafting: for those that do it's shortcommings in the major fields of it's target audience is significant. Hence the popularity of verticals.

 

Enjoy your blog: don't ignore the little man who only wants to draft, and not program.

By plotting, I mean the ability of each program to plot what it shows on screen.

You get into clipped images and lots of data, and stable plotting is a big deal. The dwg to pdf.pc3 in acad 2012 is top notch, so that could be a reason to use it and LT over bricscad.

 

The notice about "not a trusted dwg" will come to bite autodesk. I will be careful to educate the southern california users about the nature of that message. Won't be pretty for Autodesk since their "genuine" drawings may have aec objects unexploded from higher versions. Stuff from bricscad would not have items like that, since the civil progs like Carlson do not use custom objects.

aec objects are a different topic though.

 

Your point about basic drafting supports using bricscad. If just doing basics, why pay for the heavy duty product.

The little shops I know of would LOVE to drop their adesk products for ones 10x cheaper that perform well.

Like, you could make a living off transitioning people if you know what you are doing and are good with menus and lisp.

What are they going to do when FB falls through and the next big thing comes along, something like ImSpaced or whatever.

FB will be deemed "Too big to fail" and will receive a gov't bailout. At that point, they will be state controlled media and it won't matter anymore.

Too funny!

Does that mean that Zuckerberg did not create fb on his own?

Not according to Obama.  Anyway, how could he have created FB if it weren't for Al Gore creating the Internet?  :smileyvery-happy:

but we are the government, and pay for everything, so we make it...how does it then make us?

Just remember (for Hitchiker's Guide fans...), be sure to vote the RIGHT lizard into office, because if you don't, the wrong lizard WILL get elected instead...

Well. I guess that leaves me out. FB is blocked at the office as well as YouTube, screecast and almost everything else. It took me years to get them to remember to unblock this site after each firewall upgrade. For a while I couldn't visit any website to do with Middlesex or Sussex Counties because they have the letters S, E and X next to each other!

 

I don't FB at home because I don't have time to even if I wanted to. It's funny. People know I'm good with computers. So they come to me and ask questions about Facebook and twitter. I just shrug my shoulders and tell them I have no idea.

 

BTW Isn't ther stock doing so well?
