I see all this going around and around about TurboCad on this site. I get
spams from Caligari.com, makers of True Space. The first CGs I ever saw
were done by a friend in 1996 of a small wooden tool I had made, he did it on
a laptop using TrueSpace ver.2, and it blew my mind. Back to the spam, I
have long since abandoned True Space for a higher end program but they keep
sending me these offers. For the money, and compared to what TurboCad
offers, True Space is a great alternative. The latest offer is, buy 99.00
of training software and you get ver.5.5 of the program for free. Keep in mind
its not a CAD program in the strict sense, but an excellent design tool and
worth checking out at this price. Nothing in it for me but a little further
the road toward carpal tunnel syndrome.
Design cad is available for less than $99 and its a very powerful program,
if you can figure out how to use it. I gave up trying - burned up two 15 day
trial periods and convinced myself that Cad programs are too difficult for
what I get out of them. I discovered Visio (which my company furnishes for
free) does just fine for me.
When you say "spam", you mean unsolicited commercial email? If so, why in the
world would you reward that by giving them _money_? If it's something you
asked to get, however, it is very unfair to them to call their mailings "spam".
Did you opt in to get the mail, or did they send it unsolicited? For me,
that's an absolute - I will not give money to a spammer, under any
circumstace. Now that you've called it spam, can you please tell us if
it was opt-in (not spam) or opt-out (spam)?
I signed up for it, if I recall correctly,
5 or 6 years ago.
Anyway, it's a cool program for
the money which was the point
of my original message. I don't
believe it has the accuracy of a
CAD program, but it does awesome
design renderings. And now that
you know it's not spam but just
something I didn't define very well
because after 5 years their promotionals
get a little tiresome and I was using the
term loosely, you can go out
and buy it with a clear conscience.
You don't even have to like it.
