Brings Advanced CAD Technology to the
Never again will a DIY enthusiast have trouble understanding printed plans.
Purchasers can view, zoom, rotate, and render their 3-D electronic model on their own
computer. They can isolate a single part, see it from any angle, and even zoom
inside to see how it's built from the inside out. And since the 3-D models are
full-size and accurate to within one-thousandth of an inch, users can take precise
measurements directly from the electronic model, and see exactly how each part fits
together - all in three-dimensional space. In addition, the 2-D CAD drawings provide
complete dimensions in traditional drafting format. Users can view the drawings,
zoom in on a part for a close-up look, and print out detailed drawings using an ordinary
printer. All the necessary software is provided on the CD-ROM, and no prior
knowledge of CAD systems is needed.
Construction Manual with Step-by-Step Instructions
The easy-to-navigate construction manual on CD-ROM lets users see precisely how
each item is built. High-resolution photographs, renderings, and
drawings show how it's done from beginning to end. Technical information, specifications, a materials
list, and sources of materials are also included.
Internet Links to On-Line Updates, Technical Support, and Other
Using links on the CD-ROM, users can instantly access on-line support, and obtain the
latest information on their project. They can visit the FAQ area to see answers to
the most commonly asked questions, or get the latest updates to their plans. And
they can network with other enthusiasts through the on-line classified ad section, locate
parts, services, or finished projects, or place a free ad of their own.
The Fun Way to Learn
DIY enthusiasts get the benefits of the latest CAD technologies without having to
learn CAD or 3-D modeling software. They'll gain firsthand knowledge of how CAD
systems work and what they do as they build their projects using the latest computer
technologies. Learning happens naturally as a fringe benefit. There's no
better way to become familiar with the powerful utility of these 21st-century computer
aided design systems.
