After 18 hours of flying and 4 weeks on the road in Asia I am finally home! I had a wonderful trip and I was a little sad as I boarded the flight home. But seeing my dogs again was fabulous! So let's start with the AutoCAD Tip - and end with some pics from Singapore...
Multiple Insertion Points for a Block
Have you ever wished you could have more than one insertion point for a block? Or have you taken this one step further and actually created separate blocks with different insertion points? Yikes! If so, you'll love this new feature they snuck into AutoCAD 2006.
When you go into the Insert command you'll see a new option of Basepoint. This allows you to select an insertion point of your choice for the block you're inserting. Take a look:
Specify insertion point or [Basepoint/Scale/Rotate/PScale/PRotate]: b
Specify base point:
If you still aren't happy you can continue to key in a "b" until you get it right!
So onto some pics from Singapore...First a picture of Yours Truly during a press interview. I met with two different journalists on Wednesday, Elaine Ng, of TODAY and Goh Tz'e Long, who writes for three different magazines. Elaine thought I was about 10 years younger than I am which completely made my day (Thanks Elaine!). One article was focussed on blogging, and the other was focused on Manufacturing and 3D.
A picture of the wonderful audience in Singapore. This presentation was specifically for our Subscription customers, just another of the advantages of being on the Autodesk Subscription program.
James was a little shy of the microphone so I actually had to stand there and hold his arm up to make sure he was close enough to the mike for the audience to hear...it was hysterical!
My favorite discovery in Singapore? The hand dryers in the Ladies Room. These devices were awesome! Dried my hands in seconds (not like those ones posted on the walls that take forever to work)...You simply slide your hands all the way in and presto! Check this out...
Since it was the last night of my tour, Vincent Chia took me out to a delightful dinner by the famous Singaporean Lion fountain ("Singa" actually means lion).
Does it look like the water is going right through my head? And last but not least - a final toast with Vincent...the end of a fabulous trip through Asia (we dined on the popular Pepper Crab)
A good time was certainly had by all...I hope to return again soon...
