Will you be using Fusion360?
Fusion 360 is a good 3D package to learn.
I am a mechanical design engineer and use Solidworks 8 hours a day.
Fusion 360 was quite easy to adapt to.
A lot of companies are now giving there software away for free
Another free 3D package is Onshape which is very similar to Solidworks (it was designed by ex-Solidworks people)
The advantage of Onshape is that it is also available on mobile devices and is fully usable on those platforms.
I have sat in my armchair and drawn 3D objects up for my 3D printer on my IPad in Onshape :)

I use the 3D software I was trained on AutoDesk Maya, its a full computer animation and modelling packaging. The version I have is long out of date but suits my needs however it is ridiculously expensive which is also why I only have an old version :)

I have been looking at other 3D packages and was just looking at OnShape only yesterday but could not figure out how to download the hobbyist version as when I click on the link it just goes to the paid version.

As for mandarin it has four sound forms, monotone, down, up and up-down, these were easy for me to master and I can say quite a few sentences my language skill is still at the elementary level but Joann and I are planning on going to Taiwan in November so I want to be better versed in mandarin in preparation for the trip :)

Whilst I tried selling myself on the practical idea of selling the NC and TMax, my heart has won out and so long as I can get it insured and have a word with my favorite mechanic to ensure I have all bases covered with looking after it and its not too much hassle, I will keep the NC and only sell the TMax. I will then bling the nuts off of the NC, I need something to look forward to.

It's a stupid one that doesn't make any logical sense, but it makes me feel better.

The 'Heart' things can be more important depending on ones mind set.
GO FUNKY! - Easy on the Anodised Tat? Don't want the NC turning in to a Tart Handbag!
Good Luck!

I can blame you for this by at least 50% :lol: ;)

You may find my wife knocking on you door to give you an ear full once she has tracked you down :)
