Canada's Wonderland Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^ Then do it. CAD drawings don’t have to be insanely complicated to be CAD drawings. The only real requirement is that it’s created within a CAD software. AutoCAD, Inventor, Vectorworks, SolidWorks etc. are all acceptable tools and I believe all of them have the ability to render solid shapes and add color. Not every CAD drawing needs to be wireframe with 7,000 constraints and dimensions plastered throughout. It was a reference image to show the track based on some measurements, and i don’t see why someone would lie about the type of drawing it was, so I’m unsure why you’re questioning that point specifically.

I just wish someone would post pictures . . . here.

Why post easily viewed pictures when you can direct them to a monetized YouTube channel?

Seriously.

I removed the colours and added a few notes... can I call it a CAD drawing now, Pattycakes?

 

 

Yes, much better, thanks.

 

I'm sorry, I am just more used to CAD drawings looking more like this example.

Just because you used a computer to design something, doesn't mean you actually used a CAD program, sorry.

I don't even mind being moved to another site where the work is monetized. The guy seems to have an expensive drone and goes daily. I DO mind having to sit through 15 minutes of inane commentary and needlessly loud music.

 

Just slap some ads on a blog and watermark the photos.

Actually it does. CAD means Computer Assisted/Aided Design. Anything that uses a computer to assist is CAD.

 

Now professional CAD used by developers and architects - no. Helpful CAD no. But CAD technically yes.

My thing is entice me to want to go to your monetized YouTube channel. Give me a reason to click the link. A picture or two can't hurt, right?

Not going to take a particular side here, but you know you can embed YouTube videos in your posts. Use tags with the full URL (less timecode).

Technically you're correct, but heavily splitting hairs. In Engineering CAD refers to Computer Aided Drafting, software that draws up objects in 2-and 3D. Other packages that do other design aspects (CFD, FEA, Numerical Methods, Gas Dynamics) are not referred to as CAD, rather by what portion of design work they actually do. PATTYCAKES has a more correct argument in this context, in my time working in Engineering CAD has always specifically referred to drafting software.

 

Back on topic, when does Toronto's schools go back in session? May be passing through the area in mid-August/early-September and would rather not fight every kid and their mom if I end up there.

Blueprints found of this very unique dive coaster. It's footprint is insane.

Gave it 4 minutes . . . I'm sorry but I guess I like to get straight to the point. I fully understand these videos aren't being made solely for me but . . . Wake me when some solid info comes out and not the "I wanna spoil it but I don't wanna spoil it" back and forth.

Anyone bashing CedarFair1's YouTube videos just don't realize they're in a loud minority.

Sure if you don't like his stuff, you can simply not watch it.

 

I however have been following his videos since the wintertime and no one else goes to the lengths that he has with interviews, drones, everyday park appearances and willing to learn knew terms and practices to envision the new coaster.

 

THIS KIND OF THING DOESN'T USUALLY HAPPEN.

 

Every video he is getting more information and it's piecing everything together. Sure you can watch Coaster Studios, TPR, Coaster Bot or a thousand other type of channels, but none of them dive this deep into details. He is even expanding to other Cedar Fair parks like Carowinds and Cedar Point and bringing a following with him.

 

A half a year ago when he started the channel he was rocking like 130 people or w/e... now he is almost at 5,000 subscribers with well over a quarter million views. Clearly someone is enjoying this info.

 

He has put countless hours and his own money into doing this. Is it perfect? F?ck no.... but is he getting better at creating videos and discussions then back in March? Leaps and bounds... absolutely.

If you're too lazy to click on a play button and actually see moving pictures and a voice that helps you understand what you are seeing then I don't know why you are on a chat forum to begin with.... there's way too much clicking involved in the first place!

Haha chill out people. He is the main reason you're even on CW's sub forum this often anyways.

Ok you can Calmdown and take it down a notch. If you read correctly I did click the "play button" and after 4 minutes of hyping up and going back and forth about "should I spoil it or should I not" I gave up. It's not about the length. I joyfully sat through a long video the other day that captivated my attention and it was the same concept.

 

I'm on a DISCUSSION thread to discuss things. Are you serious lol . . . he is NOT even a reason i'm viewing the CW thread. Don't think so highly of that. I enjoy the content that pretty much all contribute. If I was coming solely for what he post then I would just go to youtube as he only post links to it here. You're right WE do need to chill out. I'm giving my opinion. I cannot apologize if you don't care for it.

 

And I will not go back and forth with you (or anyone) as that is not what the site is design for. I welcome constructive, healthy discussion but yeah . . . not gonna do it.

1. I didn't mention anyone in particular...

2. Look at this thread from last year and it was moving at a snails pace.... so this development is moving the thread a lot more while very few people are actually providing development content

3.if you didn't realise, I was discussing things as well. I am not trying to stop people from having an opinion but when it comes down to 3 or 4 other people (not you) ganging up on a poster.... then yeah I'm going to speak out.

 

Understood. Thanks for clarity. . .

Because last year they were adding 2 small-medium flat rides and this year they're starting construction early on what could be a huge coaster.

Equal updates or not, one of those things will bring more traffic and discussion to a thread than the other.

 

As for me, I usually only come to this site during breaks at work and either have YouTube blocked or don't want to load 10+ min videos on my phone. Pictures of highlights from the videos would be a nice teaser to the video and might drive more people to watch.
