"Have you tried to hunt down am old Corel Suite disc? Back in the 90's there was usually just a serial number on the package to get it to load and operate. I think it would be easier to get that and convert them yourself."

Robert Anderson replied to Greg Byrer's discussion 'Observations? Thoughts?'
"Greg, One should always remove the "burlap" not really burlap these days as it is more often than not synthetic and therefore not degradable as is the same for the twine. Always cut these away and remove to well below the root zone of the…"

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…"

Robert Anderson replied to Anthony Parziale's discussion 'Alternates to AutoCAD....Vectorworks?'
"Anthony, As others have posted Draftsight is okay but not, dare I say, as good as Autodesk. I use it just to check out files that I have exported or intend to reference into VW Landmark. If you do decide to sign up for service select with VW there…"

brian matthew walker replied to Robert Anderson's discussion '3D Design'

Robert Anderson replied to William J. Blount's discussion 'Is it worth waiting for?'
