really know what video card is in this thing, but that's getting a little
ahead at this point. But it's good to know that it might be an issue. If we
have to upgrade the card, I'm sure that that will be a fiscally minor issue,
compared to the cost of Inventor. Still a factor, though. I have research to
do, now - I have many specific questions in my mind. Not the least of which is
- how easy is it to modify a solid shape, once it's been made. This is one
major pain when dealing with Autocad solids. I put a little decorative turn
here & there, president comes by - doesn't like the look - says `so just
change it'. OK, the faces won't move on this one, so UNDO back about 35 steps
to before I put in the turns, and redo everything from that point on. Pretty
ridiculous, really. Not long enough? Too bad - can't stretch it like a 2d. So
its Splice & dice time - very time consuming. Working in solids is
wonderful, I LOVE it, but with Autocad, it's hardly practical, unless you're
dealing with very simple shapes, as all of you in this group are quite aware,
I'm sure. PRACTICAL. COST EFFECTIVE. These are the mantra of tiny (though I
should say well established and highly regarded) companies like ours.
