Andrew Garulay, RLA replied to Robert Anderson's discussion 'Corel Photohouse'

Robert Anderson replied to Greg Byrer's discussion 'Observations? Thoughts?'
"Not sure where you want us to start? It looks like they got the depth right and the green side is up! Is the tree still alive? That would be important to note as it surely will not last much longer. The rope and fabric around the ball will…"

Robert Anderson replied to Lori Latimer's discussion 'From AutoCAD to MicroStation'
"Lori, This is a bit dated in that the last time I transitioned from AutoCAD to Microstation was when V8 came out and had dwg compatibility. All you really need to know is levels are layers and symbols are blocks. I'm sure the office you are…"
