Columbia, MD--October 30, 1996--Mac/Windows Academy (Columbia, MD) now offers videos for both the Macintosh and Windows versions of MiniCad 6. These videos are the second in the Academy's MiniCad series.
Both the Macintosh and Windows videotapes are narrated by an expert from Diehl Graphsoft's Content Group. They are an excellent resource for new users--or users upgrading from a previous version--who want additional guidance in learning how to maximize the 2D and 3D features in MiniCad 6. For both platforms, there are two videotape volumes. Volume 1 uses drawing examples to walk users through the program's basic features, and Volume 2 continues with drawing examples for advanced uses of the program:
Volume 1 contents: Introduction, Menus & Palettes, Layers, Tools, Lines, Surface Objects, Symbols, Working with Text, Working in 3D, Working in 2D, Floorplans, Hybrid Symbols.
Volume 2 contents: Classes, Worksheets, Worksheet Functions, Database Functions, Assembly Drawings, Machine Screws, Bill of Materials, 3D Modeling, Fillet Settings, Multiple Extrude, Custom Tools, Layer Links.
MiniCad 6 videotapes--which sell for $59 per volume or $98 for the two-volume set--can be ordered directly through Mac/Windows Academy at (800) 527-1914. The Academy also offers discounts for users upgrading videotapes and for bulk purchases.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
