Re: Now that Hypershot is no longer, what would you use?

an email i got today... On January 1st, 2010, Bunkspeed ended the sale of HyperShot. There were many rumors as to why this happened. The bottom line - the technology for HyperShot was licensed from a third party and that relationship ended suddenly. We are now utilizing a more powerful technology wh...

Dimensioning in Rhino??

I hate the basic dimensioning in Rhino. It seems like there is not much control over where dimensional units can be orientated on a dimension line without exploding the dimension and manually moving it around, which tends to look a little sloppy. Does anyone know of a plugin for Rhino 4 that focuses...

I was thinking more in terms of business that I could apply to that might not have posted a job opening, but may be more inclined to possibly make room due to a growth in their given specialt...

What field is thriving?

Now approaching the 30 mark, I have come to a crossroad. I have been with the same company since I graduated from college. I have been with this company for close to 6 years. I have been stressed with the thought that if I stay with my current job for much longer, I will be labeled as a specific typ...

hey Mark, That actually looks like an inustrial type "sheathing" material applied over a cord. These coverings are usually "automotive" products; I've seen a lot of different types, and colors.

function + efficiency

I try to get out on the mtb trails a few times a week during lunch. I pass a pretty rural area on the way. On the way back today I saw this thing. I was quite surprised to see a farmer with this. I thought it was cool to see how he transformed an efficient vehicle to meet his needs around the farm. ...
