Peter - I don't know if Thorsten has any samples, but there are several (mostly quite simple) files created in CADintosh in the file-sharing area of this Yahoo! list. As it says at the bottom of the messages, go to:http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cadintoshmac/and then have a look the files option.Some of the other folk inhabiting this list may also have stuff that might be useful to you, and might be prepaered to share it.Is there any particular sort of material that interests you? Are you trying to find out how powerful or flexible CADintosh is? Or if it's suitable for a particular discipline (eg mech engineering, architecture, etc)?regardsRowland-- : Wilma & Rowland Carson http://home.clara.net/rowil/: <rowil@clara.net> ... that's Rowland with a 'w' ...

Thank you Rowland for your prompt reply. I am a technical illustrator and I wanted to see what type of illustrations CADintosh could be used for. Is it a 3D program, or 2D only? Is it for isometric, dimetric or perspective? Is it a vector program? What type of files does it import or export? Regards, Peter.

Having said that, I do use it for producing illustrations to go in specifications or instructions written in a word-processor application. It just depends what sort of effect is desired - sometimes I find a MacDraw-type application such as OmniGraffle more suitable for that job. I have no experience with "painting" or "creative drawing" applications (eg Illustrator) - I'm an engineer, not an artist. >Is it a 3D program, or 2D only Strictly 2D. >Is it for isometric, dimetric>or perspective I guess you could produce all those types of drawing with it (although I'm not quite sure what you mean by "dimetric"). Its basic purpose is for producing engineering drawings, typically 3-views of the sort that used to be called "blueprints" (because of the reproduction process). >Is it a vector program Yes. >What type of files does it>import or export It has its own native format and reads and writes (some flavours of) .DXF; it will also import or export IGES & HPGL as well as PICT and a few special types such as airfoil co-ordinates that are of particular interest to me. One feature that I find very useful is the ability to import a TIFF file (for example, a scanned document or even a flat object). The resulting image can then be dimmed and new lines drawn over it to reproduce it exactly to size. Once the drawing is complete, the TIFF can be discarded.You might find answers to some of your questions on the CADintosh page at Thorsten's website:http://www.lemkesoft.de/en/cadintosh.htmYou might also want to look at the archives of this list and see some of the comments of other users. Coming from MacDraw/ClarisDraw, I found it a very steep learning curve at first. I have also used TurboCAD for Mac, which differs enough from CADintosh in its command set and philosophy to be confusing if you switch between the two. However, if you need to do any serious work involving elliptical curves, I feel the CADintosh ellipse tool has serious limitations which make TurboCAD the preferred tool in that sort of situation, despite it still being at version 1.0 and so still a bit rough at the edges.Hope this is helpful.regardsRowland-- : Wilma & Rowland Carson http://home.clara.net/rowil/: <rowil@clara.net> ... that's Rowland with a 'w' ...
