Hey Matt,

I am happy to hear that the tip worked out for you. :D

As for my Avatar, it is a small sample project of a Gas power RC dune buggy that I put together. I am currently working on builiding a tutorial for this project. The tutorial will be step by step instructions for designing the front end components, assembling them and then assembling the Front end into the rest of the Main assembly. From there it will walk you through exploded assembies and draft. This will be written to follow suite with the TopSolid'Mold tutorial that I created. The mold tutorial is a 300+ page tutorial that walks you through designing a 2 cavity mold with side actions, lifters, water, ejection...basically it reviews almost the entire product. Let me know if you would like a copy of this.

Bill,

Now that you've asked for feedback, I intend to really go through it completely once I get my hands on 6.8

I was patiently waiting to receive it but now I guess I am irritably waiting for it. :(

I went through a lot of it with 6.7 but decided to wait for the latest version.

Hey Matt,

It seems strange that you have not recieved the 2007 version. We have shipped it out to all of our customers. If you don't recieve it this week, send me an email, (bill@clear-cut.com) and I will see if I can speed it along for you.

I checked with my VAR today. It seems we are waiting for a patch, a utility, and further testing before releasing 6.8
