Two demos, not at all planned to be released at the same time, both on the same subject: Blocks. You couldn't possibly find two completely different demos. I think it goes to show the versatility, and value in working with AutoCAD data. It's funny because back in the (yester)day, all you hear about in this industry is 3D, move to 3D, get off of AutoCAD and move to 3D....as though tomorrow your going to wake up and all your 2D AutoCAD data is somehow stale bread that you would only use if you had to. I've never really understood that - its not a matter of 2D, or 3D. That's one of the great things about Digital Prototyping - Its 2D drawings, its 2D drawings of 3D models AND oh yeah - all of the other supplemental information that further illustrates, validates, or communicates design intent. I know I'm rambling a bit here, but I think many of you share in my frustration...right? ....Bueller.....Bueller? [grin]
Alright, I'll stop ranting now...roll film!!....
Here's Justin's example. Check out the difference in workflow... http://mfgcommunity.autodesk.com/blogs/blog/view/4/Inventor_144_Tip_AutoCAD_Block/
