a day in the life

I have far too many boxes for serious programs that are just gathering dust on my ST-shelf so I figured I should make an effort to learn 'em or bin 'em. First, is Master CAD, by MichTron and after brushing away a thick layer of dust I opened the box and lifted out its weighty manual. "Time for a good read", I thought. However, I almost fell into a coma because it's so dull and very confusing - so I figured it was best to drop it and load it up for a play!

Installation was the first stumbling block, it insists on the C drive which is doable but cluttering up my boot partition isn't something I was happy about. The next problem was a lack of examples to work from (steal) so not exactly a great start... With little guidance, I continued on best I could but it's clear MichTron wrote this for the established designer and me being thrown in at the deep end wasn't going to work. However, I did attempt to map out a crude plan of DOOM's E1M1 which soon ended in a mess of clutter and it was long before I gave up!

Master CAD appears to be a promising application and I imagine it's darn powerful but the interface is baffling to a noob (like me). I can't say I was too impressed so perhaps I should stick to playing games?

Anyhow, click here to see just how Master CAD affected me!!

I hope you enjoyed this silly post but I'd still love to know if any of you guys have had success? ( download it )
