I have discovered SpaceClaim and it goes hand in hand with Rhino I am told, even that McNeel sat with SpaceClaim to see such marriage through.
Users will have access to metal bending and other features that Rhino cant do so well at or do at all, and SpaceClaim users have access to all that Rhino is good at that other progs are not so good at or cant do at all.
But , shock horror, the forum for SpaceClaim …nuked by Ansys.
Users are now in solitary unable to see beyond the narrow telephone line or email system to their paid for support, which has time and amount of calls limits. A world without forums, we all know how vital forums are for bug fixing, ideas, problem solving, learning from others and so on. Ansys seem to think one is best off without a CAD forum.
I am gutted to think the vital forum is ended for folk before having even started out on this new venture.
Just imagine Rhino forumles…so please…
I ask. who would like to see the forum for users survive and be here,
could there be an additional section here for SpaceClaim seeing of its affiliation to Rhino. users need a forum. the fact that one pays £700 year for support from the reseller, and speaking to three I had varying home made rules such as 3 calls in a week limit, so if one hit some hurdles on a job, best delay the job and spread it out over a few weeks, to £1000 day 1:1, to have an unknown buffer revealing itself only when you hit it, …
I think Spaceclaim is useful. It instantly fixed a simple Rhino boolean fail and split fail due to the classic fail reasons known to users.
It goes well with Rhino so lets see a forum in the same arena to asist this marriage as there is no forum now.
