    No, JD, having worked in a surveying crew I know my compass directions. < < < This was said in error. I apologize JD.

    You're as bad as me at times when it comes to being direct and you see the flack I get.

    I wasn't referring to your hot air directions.
    And what is bad about being direct?
    I wish someone would give me a $100k tip.

    ReMark,
    There are trolls living under every forum.

    Ignore them and they get tired and go where they can get a response.

    Thank you so much for your insights and patience.

    The resident troll is not the first to poke at my verbosity (and amongst the least original) and I'm sure he won't be the last.

    I'm curious to know if you have a share somewhere that the DXF might be uploadable and accessable to me?

    How about a $1 tip? It's all I can afford since I just saw what Uncle Sam wants me to send him.

    JD is not a troll; he's just.....ah......JD. What can I say. His advice is sound but his delivery was off today. Maybe because the state he lives in just experienced an ice storm. Maybe he hasn't warmed up yet.

    Upload the DXF? Jeez, I'll have to recreate it. I deleted it! LoL

    Bilbo: Let me try something first. Give me a few minutes. I'll be back.

    OK, I'm back. I managed to get the file size down to approximately 25MB. That's the best I can do. Do you utilize any file sharing websites? Ex. - Dropbox.

    while it appears correct, (obviously), there is indeed a Student program atAutodesk.

    And it is certainly true that if you qualify, you can get a ton ofincredible software on 36 month licenses.

    HOWEVER, It does NOT appear to be correct that "Any student over theage of 11 anywhere in the world can download"

    I assume some may consider "secondary" school to be broad enoughto include anything but elementary school, apparently, Autodesk does not.

    The system will automatically exclude from eligibility, any age which wouldnot currently be enrolled in High school.

    E.G. roughly 13.5 and older.

    Bilbo: I just sent off an email to you. I hope it makes it through. If for some reason it doesn't show up then I have another option at my disposal.

    Update:

    Email failed to get through. File size way too large. Can't try the other option until tomorrow (Sunday). Please be patient as I have not given up yet.

    Oops, looks like they have changed the terms since last I looked.

    Eligibility.jpg

    You might check into some of their partner programs like First Robotics or SkillsWorld. Volunteer to set up something at a local school. (c) an Autodesk-sponsored design competition mentor.
    I know I have seen a lot of younger students come through my lab.

    Maybe a friend who is a couple of years older? They could learn together.



    Also, the student (or faculty or mentor) can download each new release for a new 3-yr license, so in effect, they have perpetual access to the latest design software as long as they meet the eligibility.

    Bilbo:

    I've sent you a link to download the DXF file from Dropbox. I sent the link to two out of the three email addresses you provided me on Saturday. It would be nice to know if you have successfully download the file. You can either update me here or via email.
