Re: What's happening here?

Hard to say, next time it does it I should take the plate off. I've been using the mic6 plate for nearly a year now, never an issue before.

What's happening here?

Anyone know what this might be? Z stepper going bad maybe? Might do it 4 or 5 times then it's fine. No issues printing, no apparent binding.

Re: EAA offers solidworks to its members

Tempting. Too bad the student version is so crippled but I might join just to check it out. SpaceClaim is my weapon of choice. Course it was a lot more than $40. Might be worth it just to be able to open SW files and export them to STEP... if you can do that in the student version.

That's about right + the yearly maintenance which isn't mandatory after the first year unless you want continued support and free upgrades. They have some discounts going the month of June so around $2700 total. Full retail is about $3300. Solidworks I believe is around 5k + 1300 per year.

Re: SpaceClaim

I've been using an eval license they provided so I know I already like it. It's the only package I've found that as a novice I can actually accomplish things with right from the get go.
