...and it was working so well just the other day. I can't figure out
what is wrong (though I haven't had time for exhaustive trials). When I

For the first time in quite a while I have needed to lay out some site
features based on surveyor's units for the angles. It seems that this

client's people on actual projects (combined with training and standards
development). After that it was much easier and more effective to carry
on remotely. This is not to say tha...
I just added my vote as essential (which is rare for me). I am in the
process right now of converting a Revit model to IFC and then using
ArchiCAD to produce the U3D so I can make a 3d PDF in Acrobat to send to
a client who does not want to deal with...
