aww crap, i did a $4000 course over 5 days for autocad-2007 and never used autocad again, i did get the tax credit for the course even if i was also reimbursed by the company at the same time.... i also worked on a project for Autocad building their offices in Singapore.

so... yes I'm qualified to help you, but fucked if the outcome is really going to be in any way useful....

ok so the best i can do for you is spell autocad and give you the address of their head office in Singapore and tell you that they have yellow workstations...

yes.... I'm that useless :)

LOL @ yellow work stations!!!

I bought Dreamweaver intending to learn how to use it......still in the box. As you say, tax deductible......I'm that useless too!!!

He can do the drawing side of it OK, & has had one on one tutoring, the issue we are having is with him understanding what files relate to each drawing in order to send them on to other people so they are readable.

i.e. can open them & read them on his machine, but if you zip the drawing & email it to someone it's unreadable as apparently needs a heap of other files that make it readable (fonts & other stuff???). Not sure if that's something to do with different versions of the program either....

That & how to save things (with these additional files) so if you need to archive or move them for ANY reason they are still readable - if they are moved without the "other" files, info goes missing.

I don't use the program or understand that background stuff......... :0(

I'm afraid I haven't worked with AutoCad since the 1990s. Seriously. Yes, I'm that old.

AlleyCat said...

Epic - I still recon I'm older :0)

DREAMWEAVER!!

i did a course in that too when working for Sun Microsystems when they owned Netscape... remember netscape..

I have a call with my designers later today, i'll pick their brains see how smart they are.

AlleyCat said...

Dog3oy - thank you! Yes, I do remember Netscape LOL!

i'm no help there, im afraid :(

Tully said...

I hope you got auto cad moving. I don't know anything about it except that my brother has to use it for his engineering degree and it is the bain of his existence. Sounds like an awful system.

I do run my company's website from Dreamweaver. I taught myself how to use it and haven't found it too hard. Now they want me to transfer the website to a new system. Sigh.

AlleyCat said...

NO worries Slyde!

Thanks Tully - he's found it very useful, but complicated. I believe the words I was looking for were "external references" & understanding them! LOL he's found someone to give him some more one on one training as his last tutor said he was too advanced for her now!

Unfortunately my dreamweaver is still in the box!!!

DOG3OY said...

forgot to mention the guys i asked then referred me to their guy in India... for the cost of a slab of beer you could have your own CAD guy on tap....

All good mate! :0) thanks for asking!!!!!
