SysQue reminds me of some of the best features of AutoCAD MEP. I agree many people use AutoCAD in a dumb manner, but it can also be used intelligently. As soon as you dump using geometric primitives and start using Parametric Smart AEC Objects, the behavior feels very Revit-like. Great inspiring video. Thank you.

Swimming is such a team sport!
I swim in the slow lane. My coaches refuse to call it the slow lane, because to them, none of their swimmers are "slow." Personally, I don't think any of us are slow either, but with the exception of three swimmers, most of t...

You must start with then end in mind... 
When you think about streamlining your organization's business processes, your thoughts may turn quickly to automation. With all of the buzz around business automation -- and the benefits that are supposed to go along with it -- that makes sense. But as is so often the case, the real story behind streamlined processes isn't as simple as automating every possible task.

Adding 3D Scanner to my wishlist ;-) To be fair, I'm pretty happy with my Sokkia Cygnus 2LS, as I'm still able to create a cloud of points, but much more selectively.
To commemorate the 206th birthday of Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States, Leica decided to post an article about documenting Lincoln’s historic summer home using the Leica ScanStation C10 to digitally preserve the entire structure in 3D.

Dave, I've had to change the heater control valve of my 1999 Chevy Suburban multiple times, at least:

1. Myself - though I'm listing myself first, I was the 3rd or 4th to take a stab at this.
2. Shop in Bellflower, CA
3. Shop in San Jose, CA. This shop also installed all new hoses and remarked the diameters I had used didn't match correcty.
4. Changed by a friend
5. Just changed by a mechanic who rebuilt the engine as a precaution since he could see it was leaking.

Yesterday, after my first long break-in drive, I see it leaks!

Any ideas how I can fix this once and for all so I can put real coolant and be able to see the correct level in the reservoir, something I haven't been able to do for over a decade.

Rather than using the LAYER command, I usually use VPLAYER and wild cards to freeze or thaw many layers at a time in a specific viewport.
Layers have been long capable of VPFREEZE, which makes all of the contents of a layer frozen in a particular viewport. Layers are of course, also capable of controlling an objects color: as long as an object is color is BYLAY...

I have a love/hate relationship with Fry's. On the one hand, they can have amazingly low prices. On the other, such items have frequently been Dead On Arrival. I'm pretty sure they know it and simply keep shrink wrapping DOA defective material. One time, I even got an attorney's information, including his tax returns, on a defective "new" but returned drive. I contacted the poor guy and fortunately, he didn't care to pursue the matter further. The major products I have bought there have been reputable brand names such as HP, and they have worked out really well. In fact, I would probably buy more HP computers, both desktop and laptop, as well as HP printers and monitors. They also carry Apple products, which are great so you can make quick comparisons. Overall, I love visiting Fry's, which makes a geek / nerd like me feel like a glutton in a candy store. Beware! You might end up buying and spending more than you originally expected. ;-) It's also a good idea to shop online and then pick up at the store, as the prices tend to be lower and you can still usually pick them up the same day. If I'm not in a real hurry I usually order through eBay, Amazon or the actual store, such as Lenovo. Otherwise, Fry's is my go-to place for adapters and computer related equipment and supplies, especially when I'm in a hurry and need something "right now or yesterday."

I've known Paul Chretien for over 10 years and have used his company's services for several land development projects I have overseen or managed. He has great experience and a unique understanding of both the technical and legal issues involved in land development in general and surveying in particular. Furthermore, he is both a licensed surveyor and civil engineer. He's the best person to call for Surveying and Land Development projects in the Greater Los Angeles Area.

The Thompson Park Swimming Complex is perfect for both lap and recreational swimming. It consists of both indoor and outdoor pools, at least one of which is open year-round. They open for lap swimming at 5:30 AM which is generally early enough to swim before going to work. The water temperature is heated to about 82 deg. and the chlorine level is pretty optimal.

I took my 1996 Mazda 626 to another shop because the A/C was not working. They told me it needed a new compressor. Oscar diagnosed and refilled the system as was necessary for $50. He's earned my trust as a dependable, honest mechanic, which is great to find.
