Royal, I too have now fully read your post and thats what I understood from talking with Bob. I can now understand the futher talk with Bob over the training material for LTE I have been working on. Royal, you guys have a massive user base in the USA and you need to keep that going, you have to push AutoCAD LT of the podium and this program I am sure is starting to make inroads to that. As an AutoCAD trained user, it did not take me too long to drop AutoCAD and I now do all my timber profile contract work with DoubleCAD XT based programs.
I was involved with DoubleCAD right from the start of alpha testing and to tell the truth, I liked what I saw and felt that this was even better than DesignCAD that I have also havd a long involvement with. Do not get me wrong, DesignCAD is a great little program, but does lack the punch that TurboCAD has, but I also enjoy the BETA testing of DesignCAD and infact all of the testing of the IMSI products I am involved with.
Since I started with TurboCAD (V10), at first it was a little daunting, but slowly, I got my head round it to where I am with TC Pro 16.2 and still use Pro 14 with the CAM module. Maybe one day I'll upgrade including the CAM module to something more modern. What I did alot of was because of who I did alot of work for, I was committed to SolidWorks, but used the 2D drawings to create alot of CAM code for what I was able and from this, this has enabled me to work with Tait Electronics with their new CAM software Visi which is 3D, alot quicker and conversly, train their staff. Now I know Visi! Back to TurboCAD, it is now very easy to switch back and forth from LTE to full TC for very obvious reasons and has now made me better with TurboCAD.
I have got to meet some damn fine folk on these forums and damn nice folk from IMSI too! Some old hands like George and Mauritz and thanks to Mauritz who actually in his office up in Novato, much to the disgust of George, got me to move to 'the dark side'!
