Some times I'm missing a "Who I 'm" topic.
So I start one. Time to present myself.
I'm now 70 years young.
Being young, my interest lays in electronics'. So I have a full carreer in IT. ( Yes I have know them working with VacuŁm tubes. ) Passing from hardware -technician to software engineer and finally becoming an IT-Manager.
At the age of 53 my wife became Ill and I had to take home-care in hand.
So I makes from my second hobby my main occupation.Restoring old-modelships or mak new models. The drawings I have to made are not big . They are all small parts..
In my training for Art-restorator I have worked with a student version of Vectorworks. After the study the software licence became to expensive for a hobby man. So I was looking for a non-expensive drawing applications.
Most of my drawings are still done in the old fashion. - (3 views ) . So I purchased two programs, 'TC-pro-4' and 'High-Design'. Working with both, finally I have used 'HD', for his easy way you can draw . It follows close the 'Vectorworks' approach and the apple philosophy ( no more than 2 cliicks.) and I have put TC-4 aside.
People changes with age, so I have decided that I will transform my milling machine into a CNC machine and therefore I need Aadrawing program in 3D.
'HD' can not offer this and the last update of that program was also 3 years ago.
I came back tot TC-pro-7. I have translated all my drawings into *.DXF now. I will not use 'HD' any more and will focus on TC-7. I will learn drawing in 3D and 'i'm are very busy to learn with the on-line user guide and the tutorials.
My interest is thus in small mechanical drawing. with a precision at 0,1 mm.
Being Dutch speaking man, I understand very well french - english, but writing is an other matter. So be patience and become not angry if I express myself in the wrong way.
