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.

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


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 [youtube] tags with the full URL (less timecode).

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

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.

Your better option is to use one of the YouTube buttons above the editing box. Preview your message before submitting it and if the first button you clicked doesn't work, use the other button.

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.
