Yep, I said awesomeness and according to Google Chrome I didn't spell it wrong either. This one is a user request. Check it: The hair is sweet - the request makes total sense. Link the iProperties of a part or assembly to the drawing file so that search results when... Continue reading

This is what I love about our users. Build a solid platform in which you can allow your users to customize, tweak, and make awesome additions to. That's just what my man Brian Hall did with his Center Point Rectangle (CPR for short) add-in for Autodesk Inventor. Check out the... Continue reading

If there is one thing that I'm learning from LeBrondo James is that it's all about the electrolytes. Ohh, good movie reference there...anyone? No, it's all about shameless self promotion and in that light I dub thee (the royal thee - myself) the "Real Time Conceptual Design to Engineering and... Continue reading

A more organized person would have blogged about being on vacation for the last 10 days prior to going on vacation. As I'm sure you know by now...that's not me. It was a great time, I did my best to lower the overall volume of wine in Napa and Sonoma.... Continue reading

Doo unt dew dew... This week Jay Tedeschi, Dan Brown, Seth Hindman, and myself are headed down to San Jose, CA for an extremely unique opportunity to do our part in shaping the future of solar energy. The Rocky Mountain Institute and partners Delta/DelSolar, the DOE, Rio Tinto, National Postcode... Continue reading

That was a riot! Despite the (expected) technical difficulties I had at the outset, I recovered nicely and the show was a hit with the folks that logged in. Thanks those of you that logged in, very much appreciated and as always you had fantastic questions that made the whole... Continue reading

Hey guys. Getting some great comments on the iLogic post from last week. I'd like to address them, but require a little more functionality than I can do in a comment so here it goes: Thanks for your great tip! Can I get Inventor to add "mass" & save date"... Continue reading

Fight the good fight Paul... [grin] Are you able to watch the videos when they are embeded into the blog?
Oh the toys I get to play with... A while back I started messing with USTREAM. It took a while for the software to catch up with the technology, but finally I'm able to broadcast LIVE my own show. This isn't a GoToMeeting (which is cool in its own right)... Continue reading

It wasn't quite the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, but still cool. A couple of weeks ago I was asked by Dennis Jeffrey of Tekni Consulting LLC, to write up my take on the new Alias Design for Inventor functionality that is delivered with Alias Design. The article was for... Continue reading

iLogic technology that is now included with Autodesk Inventor is insanely easy to use given the power that is right inside of the application. Having said that - I'm convinced that demonstrating iLogic functionality is as difficult to demonstrate as anything I've ever done. Now let me explain before my... Continue reading

Who ever came up with the term "lo and behold"? Yes I spelled lo correctly, I looked it up through the power of the internet. But lo and behold, people are reading this little blog of ours, and it was good. Yesterday I posted a blog about the specs on... Continue reading

Does anyone else feel like were at the local cruising hangout checking out each others rides? Whatchu got under the hood, man? :-)
Toggle Commented Jun 8, 2010 on Workstation Specs at Ellipsis
I'm going to go ahead and address the most common question I get. What kind of workstation do I run Autodesk Inventor (Vault, Fusion, Alias, Showcase, Sketchbook, Publisher, Moldflow, and Algor) on? I run everything, commonly at the same time, on my Dell Precision M6400 Covet. The most important thing... Continue reading

What are you doing next Thursday? In between your Bloody Mary and Vodka Tonic transition, which usually occurs right around 11:00 AM...? [grin] There is going to be a pretty sweet webinar hosted by Desktop Engineering's Kenneth Wong. The topic of the webinar is combining time tested engineering principles with... Continue reading

Have you ever seen the movie Down Periscope? Most people haven't, but it's a really funny movie - very campy, college humor type of hilarity. One of the characters was a radio man played by James Martin Jr. would have uncontrollable face twitches, body convolutions, and various other uncontrollable muscle... Continue reading

Brilliant. End of post. Nothing really to write about, but I will anyway. Think of all the blockbuster series finales we've endured over the past couple of decades. The last epic finale was M.A.S.H, right? I was 6 or something like that and remember that one. BJ almost wrecking his... Continue reading

Might take off... right - the plane has left the airport man. Building Information Modeling is revolutionizing the Architectural and Civil industries right now. My take on why its taking off as rapidly as it is you ask? Forever architects have avoided putting too much detail onto a drawing, rather... Continue reading

"I read as well as I demo..?" Hmmm, can't tell if that is a compliment or a jab. [grin] No, the ice tasted like frozen Evian, it was glorious.

Ah the sale. Man I miss that sometimes. The chase, perceptions destroyed and new ones created. Today was fun, I went to an Inventor customer today and went old school freestyle. I didn't have anything planned to show them, just wanted to listen. Grandpa always likes to remind me that... Continue reading

I know I'm probably the last person that one would call Mr. Green jeans but I was driving home the other day sitting on my new favorite parking lot here in Oregon otherwise known as Highway 217... And in front of my truck sits a Toyota Prius. One of the... Continue reading

I immediately start singing "Help! I need somebody...." any time I see a help reference. Am I the only one that doesn't really need an iPod? Seriously I have songs playing in my head all day long. So I got a note from the man, Buzz Kross yesterday asking me... Continue reading

I'm not sure if we told you yet or not, but we released a new version of Inventor a little while back. Autodesk Inventor 2011....? You may have heard us mention it a time or two over the last couple of weeks I suppose. We've spent a lot of time... Continue reading

I'm on the plane right now, pretty sweet to have WiFi and just downloaded the TypePad iPhone app so I can blog away whilst on the plane. I'm sure to have a few misspellings so all you Correcty Correctersons can have something to comment on...[grin] I'm on my way to... Continue reading

Every time I drive over the Mississippi River I have to pull out my best Clark W. Griswold impression and start singing a little. 3,417 (ish) miles in 4 days. Those of you not following me on Twitter have no idea what I'm talking about do you? Sorry, I recently... Continue reading
