I like all the new categories so I can go straight to a topic of interest and not have to wade through all the other posts to find it.

I want to know when the listing order of the posts will be chronological - MOST RECENT POST AT TOP?
It has been a LONG time since this forum was launched and it is still a fake managed list order.
Time to get real...
Cheers

I completely concur with Paul. The forum at the very least, should be in order of the date of last entered first. Fixing this should be doable, and given that ZW is trying to use forum for communication with and between us, should have some priority.

Hope springs eternal eh? Perhaps Paul they will get around to it with the firecracker laden launch for 2013. Mike Lynch mentioned that he had given up fixing the forum before they ran him off. It seems as though they could not keep their hands off of the forum and he got tired of fixing it and telling them to leave what they did not understand alone. Got my new Haas VF4 in last week. The launch of SE ST5 is coming up in June and I will celebrate by buying the first integrated CAM package available for SE. Thus will close the final chapter on a sad tale indeed. Bob is selling VX/ZW at firesale prices here in the US and his last letter promoting it had a hint of desperation to it.

Yeap, you'd think a date based listing would be actually easier than dicking around with the order!!!

Alas, our suggestions for openess and a suitable arrangement of subjects seems to have fallen on deaf ears.
And as a result of this, the forum is at risk of dying.
When the RSS feed provides the Spammer updates but omits the responses from genuine contributors, you have to wonder how it will end....

hi


Sorry, i did not understand if it is already sato released or if this is already the new but I don't think eh .


However, i do think that what is lacking is a section where we deal with the various problems of the cad and the information that you think to adopt, keep customers and very important before you get tired of waiting for what they do not know if it arrives and change road along . A cross-section/guide webinar of medium difficulty for users that are beginning to realize how to use the program,


for example: make a movie

make a together with alternative components

enrich their 3D library

as parameterize an imported file

how to perform simple macros etc. )

so their curiosity the user :)

Now about this FORUM.

So now we don't even get the opportunity to press the Sort by Date button - though it never worked anyway? Never figured on that response to the sort order problem - take away the choices.... what next?

Good day Mr Mudcrab. I say my good man have you noticed how my posts count seems to stay stuck at five? Ponce DeLeon once trekked to Florida back in the 1400's and one of his quests was to find the Fountain of Eternal Youth. Today I feel reinvigorated. I can never grow old here it appears and I can stay young forever having discovered the Post Fountain of Eternal Youth. I can't begin to convey to you how tremendously excited I was when I realized my extreme good fortune.

One of the side benefits of this youth elixir is that I can stay up all night playing with the mill and remain totally invigorated the next morning!

WOW, look, it went to 6!!! OK, no more late nights at the mill.

A great tip that i can with as much as giving and solve the many problems that in MCAD we are , if no has no way to exist this forum if you do not to vent anger users beware, for the time lost to make simple things i while being a faithful zw3d began thinking of change software because i have only problems and responses that they told me to wait for version 2013 but i can't wait i have to work!(babylon traslator)

Time lost to make simple things indeed. Sheet metal was the begining of the end for me. All the equipment I build seems to have sheet metal and this is typical for MCAD. It has to be there. I began with VX in V9 and renewed for the last time with ZW2012. I have been here for some time and I think the design side of VX/ZW has fallen way behind their competition. Now time is money and if it takes you way to long to do parts it is time to go. You try a good MCAD program with real direct editing and you will ask yourself why you did not do it sooner.

CAM is why I stayed as I quit using VX/ZW cad almost four years ago. CAM is cumbersome in some ways but once you learn it there are some nice things you can do in milling. I will not be trying lathe as I just don't trust the program now and will stay only with things like milling until I replace this. Which will be soon by the way. With the loss of Dan Micsa there is no one with ZW who can work on code for Quick mill so I expect they are going to get in there and start messing it up just like they have the forum.

The ZW people can say wait and be patient we are working on it all they want. The bottom line is that it is your money that is wasted when you have a hard or impossible time doing the work that pays your bills.
