  • 1. Need to teach a basic AutoCad class
    Hello, In several months I am going to have to teach a basic AutoCad class. Just basic commands like lines, circles, etc. The people in the class will not have access to computers. Has anyone done this before in a PowerPoint presentation or something?
  • 2. AutoCADs time has come.
    I believe it is time for AutoCAD to join its old nemisis the Drafing Board in science heaven. Againt my desire I recently switch from 13 years of AutoCAD to working in 3D Parametrics (Soldiworks to be exact) and its revolutionary. There is no justification to run 2D cad any more. Even if you for some reason love Autodesk you should still just switch to Inventor. Mabey if enough people switch it will have the investment to catch up to SWX and Pro/E. I cant stand working in AutoCAD the few times I have to now. When I do I use R14 so I dont have to deal with the 200X horible plotting scheme from hell. Once you get used to MCAD going back to autocad will be like going back to the board, intolerable. Im telling you, contact a reseller and see if you cant get a free evaluation of an MCAD package, its the way to go. It will require you to rethink how you work a little, but in the end its worth it. I found its best to see yourself as the machinist instead of a draftsman when working in 3d parametrics, thats how I adapted. Well good luck all and at least try it before you diss it.
  • 3. Question fr a non-user
    I don't use Autocad, just looking for a fast answer. If one specifies a line 12 inches in Autocad, will a printer print exactly 12 inches (any printer )? Thanks.

Fire Alarm Riser Diagrams

Hi,

Can somebody give me an example of a fire alarm riser
diagram, for a multi story building? Is there a standard
accepted configuration/format?

TIA,

Dennis

1.False Alarm - everyone carry on, and feel free to tease me

It is more than possible I f**ed comething up.

I still need to root through old models, but this mornings simple tests
show that this IS NOT an issue particular to 2007.  I withdraw my
warning about 2007, with great chagrin

But, boy will this will be an interesting topic in new orleans.

It has to do with UV lines and what happens when you model one face at
a time vs what happens when you try to get a few faces out of the same
loft (be it surface or solid).

At this point it looks like I was completly blind to how much I rely on
modeling one face at a time. Just flat-out blind to it, and blinded by
it..

Too much to go into with words in a post - it will be worked out
intensely next weekend and what I learn will be (hopefully) distilled
into a few clear samples in my presentation (and of course posted on
our website) in February.

2.Anybody using AutoCAD to draw UML 2.0 diagrams?

I was wondering if there is a parts library to support drawing UML 2.0
diagrams for use in Software Design?

3.Question about Analog Environment: eye diagrams

Jason:
You can convert psf to ascii with:
psf -i tran.tran -o tran.txt

Cadence has an eye diagram function:
eyeDiagram ( o_waveform n_start n_stop n_period ) => o_waveform/nil

This function gives an eye-diagram plot of the input waveform signal.
It returns the waveform object of the eye-diagram plot.

See the Affirma RF Simulator (SpectreRF) User Guide, Chapter 13
Behavioral Models and Methods for Top Down Design for some examples.

4.SRAM: SKILL code and butterfly diagram

Hello,

Does anyone know an easy way to layout/schematic a large sram array.
Let's say with a size of at maybe 256*512. Can anyone please give me
some suggestion like where to find a code example for this or a
tutorial?

Moreover, when trying to generate the "butterfly diagram" for sram
read/write stability, anyone knows how do you put both curve on the
same graph, and where to break the circuit in order to make the graph?

Thank you for the help.

5.Polar Diagram in Cadence ?

If I have an amplifier with an AC Response,

is it possible to display this as a polar diagram in Analog Artist ?
(instaead of displaying magnification and phase separately )

I could not see such a function in the calculator
