    You can do that manually in DOS Bobcad really fast. I think it's even faster than acad, because the interface is quicker. Sometimes the Windows interface is a pain in the patootie.

    That's why I am happy enough with the old-fashioned, less-effective Sinopharm one.

    But on the other hand, most of us here are so old it doesn't matter. There won't be any long-term effects...

    The Fanuc 6 (or thereabouts) had FAPT. Done in one :D

    But generally, I'd agree with you that offline is a lot better in almost every way.

    People turn these into little cam grinders, too ... not long enough for automotive but you can do motorcycle cams. Or model engines ... hard to find when you want one. Terry ?

    Did you ever go over to the place in San Rafael with the HUGE wooden tracks ? Like, fifty feet long, six lanes wide with high-banked curves like Daytona ? It only lasted about six months but wow .......

    Divide by the number of people in the country, Buck. You produce twice as much per person.

    Quit pointing fingers when you are twice as guilty.

    And this still does not address the fact that you...

    I don't get this part. What does freedom have to do with avoiding a virus ? 'Freedom', in the west, is all about the ability to give someone else a disease ?

    CO2 is not the same as air pollution. Using Mark's figures above, the US emits roughly twice as much CO2 per person as China.

    Your comments are therefore totally in error.

    It may "allow" that, but it's not what they are doing, and they have already verbally committed to much more ambitious goals. And in reality, China is already putting way more effort into CO2...

    Sorry, I knocked this out and it turned out not as illustrative as I'd like. I got too clever with the weirdo angles so it doesn't illustrate common things, like a chamfered corner. Hope you get the...

    Doubt it. The Create people have put a lot of effort into setting up a name and presence and online ordering and shipping, no reason for them to undercut themselves.
