Really hope this is a solid application written for the Mac and doesn’t feel ported. All I’ve had is bad experiences with AutoCAD on the Mac. It’s just been problems and so I’ve decided to uninstall it completely and just use bootcamp since the developers/designers for the Windows version of Autocad clearly invested more time and energy into the product. In my opinion, it doesn’t deserve to exist if it’s not user friendly and functional, which is exactly what AutoCAD 2012 for the Mac is. I would really love them to do an overhaul on the 2013 version of Autocad for the Mac, and instead of simply moving around buttons and making minor bug fixes / tweaks to the user interface, actually redesign the application from the ground up and make it work as smooth as the built in applications on the Mac made by Apple. Until then, I see no reason to use Autodesk products on the Mac, it’s simply not sustainable or of any use for that matter. It’s actually pretty unfortunate considering that design applications originated on the Mac platform and now most, if not all, architecture / design programs run better in Windows. For now I suppose I’ll just have to continue dual booting between Mac and Windows.
I think the axon came out really well and is very readable considering that the drawings I worked off of were not too detailed and actually failed to label some of the rooms’ purposes and programmatic usages. I think it will go well in my portfolio; however, this thing needs to be scaled much larger, at 11x17, it simply doesn’t do the vectors, fills and images justice.
First, go grab some headphones. The best ones you’ve got. If the best ones you’ve got are these suckers (or something similar), you should really go buy new ones, but use the best you’ve got for right now.
Take a break from whatever you’re doing for 2 minutes and listen, but just listen to the whole thing, even if you have to multi-task.
