I will try this. As I stated I have been doing computer design since 1985 with 20+ years in Creo(ProE). Everything in this software is done in sketches and you cannot finish a sketch in less it is constrained in at least 2 directions-does not matter if it is constrained to a edge, plane or hole. Then you can just move the sketch around by editing these 2 dimensions Same with the objects in the sketch. After you click finish, it you project the sketch into the part it removes, the other way it adds.
Solidworks is the same-I did some training on this a few years back. I know TC is capable of doing anything I want, I just need to forget how I am use to doing things and keep plugging away at learning this new software. Luckily I am now retired and have lots of time to study and bug everyone.
Back in college I was in a class created just for me(3 semesters) and I designed my own drafting package using a Tektronics system that had a whopping 64mb on board and everything was done form a 9" floppy disk. I have learned a lot of systems along the way and did a lot of research before going with TC. I hope that one day the cam side improves and I can just use this one package instead of bobcad (which I personally think is a good 4 axis system for the money)
I am using TC Plat Pro '17 with Animation labs, symbols, Beam Analysis, Google plugins and Magic Tracer
I plan to buy U3D and PDF 3D, Lightworks, TurboPDF, section and graph calc and Pdf2cad this year.
SO, I am committed to this software and even though I will always compare to previously used software, I hope to get and give a lot of help and give suggestions that make this software the best it can be.
