For the last few days I’ve been in our Farnborough, UK office (near London) on a 5-day training with some pretty cool, interesting and knowledgeable folks I’m sure you heard about such as Lucy Kuhns, Jason Hickey, Vivek Ramesh, Wendy Lim, Nicolas Menu and many others form all Geos. The very first day some of us took time to see beauties of London, Big Ben, London Eye, Thames river cruise and other tourist attractions and those are very many in London. I split with our small group and took time to meet my high school friend that I have not seen for many, many years and to get some presents for my kids at Stamford Bridge stadium (Home of Chelsea).
Besides being able to put faces behind some known names I am glad that (while still fighting jet lags) we covered some pretty neat and exciting stuff that I will be sharing with you in the days to follow. So please stay tuned. I hope our teams in US, Singapore, Neuchatel and India are managing just fine without us.
Thank you all, once again.
I’ll use this opportunity to share a quick tip with you that you may come across when using TRIM command in AutoCAD. When using TRIM command to trim the lines and circle crossing, instead of trimming the entire length it trims to the something we call “implied edge”. To demonstrate what I meant I’ll throw a couple of pictures.
So how to resolve it - you may ask? Well, pretty simple-turn it off.
1. Type TRIM and select
two objects you would like to trim
2. Hit Enter
3. In the command prompt you should see these options: [Fence/Crossing/Project/Edge/eRase/Undo] select Edge
4. In the Enter Implied edge extension mode [Extend/No extend] select "No extend"
5. Run TRIM command once again, select objects to trim and trim it
6. The trim should look like this:
