How is 6.8 ? Are you using it ?

How many people are using 6.8 ?

I am surprised that there are relatively few posts about this new version.

Either nobody is using it :( or there are very few bugs... 8)

I still have not received this version. :evil:

I got to install v6.8 yesterday.

I played with it a bit, and I liked the sketcher. The adding of constraints is very nice, it seems to offer more choice than in the core program.

One thing though: if you create construction lines in the sketcher, you cannot re-use them in the main design. The sketcher seems to be semi-independent for producing specific profiles, although you can still see the construction lines and driving dimensions in the main design if you display invisible entities.

That's odd.

I haven't had much time to explore anything else.

The software comes with a nice 91 pages manual, 45 of which pertains to added features in TopSolidDESIGN and TopFOLD. The rest covers EDM, CAM, WOOD, etc. There is a very decent tutorial for the sketcher.

Thanks for the feedback.

I am still waiting for my reseller on this one.

I 'scrapped' the contrains out of my brain when I switched from Inventor to Top.

With constraining back, Top has the same functionality as most drafting programs.

In the new sketcher I miss only the chamfer function :(.
