@Caleb: This actually looks really great! Coming from a background in 3d animation for games/effects, many mechanical modeling packages are a tiny bit confusing to me.

I was literally poised to downloak SketchUp Make when I heard about this -- I have been told by other folks that SketchUp Make wasn;t ideal for what I wanted to do (someone said I'd be best off creating my parts with dimensions in feet or meters and then scaling them down) ... but DesignSpark Mechanical looks just like what the doctor ordered :-)

This actually looks really great! Coming from a background in 3d animation for games/effects, many mechanical modeling packages are a tiny bit confusing to me. This seems like a good mix, more powerful than something like sketchup.

I should probably switch to this for some more geometrically clean models.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
