Meeting Reminder:  Wednesday, March 28, 2018

CV CAD Group,

Last month we talked about the AUGI Wish List.  I referred to several that I had submitted and two of which were included in later releases.  Then our focus turned to tying in with the features of our new meeting location.  The overhead projector from our previous meeting place is now a large wall monitor.  With the use of our own personal devices (laptops, tablets and smartphones) we can now give presentations and collaborate with each other over this system. Sharon gave us insight on these linkups and will present part two at our next meeting on Wednesday. She’ll guide us on download and setup of the aforementioned devices; so bring them with you.  Expect this to last a little longer; there’s a lot to go over.  We may also have a possible project for the club to discuss.  … hope that you can make it.

Our meeting time is 5:30 pm at 6800 Staples Mill Road.  Be sure to spread the word!

Meeting Reminder: Wed., February 28, 2018

Have you ever gotten so good at a video game ’til you wish that you could make changes or add features to make it fit your own skills?  Well, the same thing can be done with AutoCAD – somewhat.  In addition to customization, an option called the Wish List could be used. Each year via the Wish List, Autodesk collects thousands of suggestions from interested users.  This helps them connect with its users and allows them to design changes to the AutoCAD engine and user interface.  At the next meeting we’ll show you just how that’s done.  I personally have had a couple of WL items added to past releases and a few that are still in process.  If you have any in mind, consider presenting them at next Wednesday’s meeting.  The process of submitting a suggestion isn’t complicated and could help smooth many tasks.  Come join us!

Our meeting time is 5:30 pm. at 6800 Staples Mill Road.
