Screen Recording Software
Nobull84 posted a topic in AutoCAD GeneralNot really too related to CAD but some may have some input for this question: Does anyone know of any GOOD screen recording software that happens to also be free? (I know those two don't usually mix; good and free) I currently have been using "CamStudio" and I have nothing but problems with it due to me using it beyond it's capabilities. I am trying to record tutorials for my company involving CAD, Bluebeam and multiple screens. Camstudio just can't handle the multiple screens and too much movement. If anyone would have some suggestions, it would be helpful. Step two in this would be convincing my IT dept. next.... Thanks for your time! -Nobull
Computer to run Revit. What should I purchase?
wings posted a topic in Autodesk RevitMy current place of work does not seem to be looking to upgrade to anything beyond basic 2d AutoCAD in the foreseeable future. But, while we sit stagnant, progress continues around me. It seems that a good 80% or more jobs out there are looking people to have Revit experience (or something similar). For that reason I am looking to purchase Revit program, and a new computer to go along with it. I would be using this to do work on the side, as well as just to use in order to know the program. I do understand that the program is about 5 grand or so, but will have help paying for it and the computer. Any thoughts on systems to run the program would be greatly appreciated. (computer specs, etc.) This is kind of a big deal to me, and I want to do it right as it may be the base for my own business. (In th field for almost 20 years and would like to eventually go on my own) Also, If this thread is in the wrong location, could a mod please move it?
Why companies prefer to show their apps on mobile?
Jack325 posted a topic in Catch AllI first heard AutoCAD’s WS, then some other apps sprung up like mushrooms. Boeing even brought its nine decades of aviation innovation to iPad. Siemens is developing its app on mobile. Upgraded MC from GstarCAD was released, just name few. The companies who already launched their mobile apps are improving their products and companies who haven’t are developing. Is it relating to the recently statements (From Eric Jackson’s article that Google and Facebook might completely disappear in the next 5 years.) that the third generation will be Mobile?
3D Injector (Beta testing)
jgabase posted a topic in AutoCAD 3D Modelling & RenderingHi friends, I have released a new tool for ACAD users and it would be great if I could find some beta testers. so what about you? 3D Injector is a stand alone application designed to create 3D Drawings from small images. Once the image is selected, the program will inject the necessary code into the ACAD command line to create a 3D mesh based on this image. Every pixel on the image is converted into a 3D point where the Z coordinate is elevated according to the pixel luminosity. Please find the link to download and test it. Comments, suggestions and bug reporting are welcome. http://www.4shared.com/zip/Riwb8jAk/3D_Injector_Beta.html http://www.cool-lab.com/3D_Injector.php Best regards J.Gabas

Are there any functions you want but not exist in your current CAD software?
Derrick022 posted a topic in AutoCAD GeneralEach software has its own advantages and i think everyone will come across some problems at work. So what will you do when your current software lacks the functions your want or are not powerful enough? To replace it with another software which has powerful such kind of functions but weak for other functions? Or combine the two software for using?

Geometric softwares and ACAD, what is the pros and cons?
khoshravan posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputI am a fan of geometry. Mostly because of aiding my daughter (junior high school) to better understand geometry questions?! First I started with AutoCAD and draw the drawings of her problems. Drawing shapes precisely, helps a lot to solve the problem. Later I find out that it is hard for her use ACAD. Then I searched the Internet and find out that there are many software specially designed for this purpose. I choose a one-month free one, Cabri II Plus (http://www.cabri.com). It is simple, easy to use, but I figured out that it is not easy to draw with measurement (or at least I couldn't find) and it is a minus for that. You can see a screen shot in the attached photo. Now I have shift back to acad. In order to make it usable for my daughter, I want to define some macros, assign icons for them for drawing a triangle, median, angle bisector, ortholine, bisecting ortholine and many other things. For myself it is much easier to use ACAD for this purpose but It is not built for this purpose but I think as far as I know and satisfies me, there is no problem. On the other hand, other software are not this much accurate and takes time for me to master. But I think ACAD is not proper for school students. I think the solution lies on the magic of Macros and LISP routines. I am wondering how many college students uses ACAD for solving their geometry homework? Is there any site to give some addins or library of LISP codes for geometric drawings? I will be glad to hear your experience of using other software for geometric drawing purposes.

AutoCAD Serial and Authorisation (Activation) Codes - Help on History
Jer posted a topic in Software & LicensingHi I have been seeking a copy of AutoCAD and want a legal second hand copy. I have researched the Internet and see from the Timothy Vernor case (2008)that this is legal but Autodesk don't like it. I have been offered a whole set of Autocad discs from 2005 through to 2010 including both LT and the full version. The company when bankrupt and the manuals, boxes, software DVDs etc were acquired in a liquidation sale. I am going to view this lot and want to know what I need to look for. My current understanding is that AutoCAD requires a serial number and authorisation code. From an old thread I can see that in 2004 the serial no was on the DVD and the other code on the packaging of the DVD. The seller seems to have two numbers for each software copy. I also read that up until 2007 (I don't know whether that includes 2007?) you just needed these 2 number and installation was all 'offline'. I have heard that since then you need the second code to be generated by Autodesk and that if you try and install on a second machine when you upgrade your PC etc you need a new code. That then places you in the hands of Autodesk and if they don't like second hand software sales then I suspect you might not get the code. Can anyone help with the dates/facts. I simply want to judge which copies are a simple load and use and which may be at risk of being valueless to me. I am happy to buy a copy of 2006 or 2007 (Full) if with 2 codes I can load offline and definitely acquire a useable product. Help/advice appreciated. Regards Jer
