  • Is anyone using 123D Design?

    Here's the free program.

    I've just started using this, so it's taking me a while to get to understand it. I've had a few glitches with my subject moving off base and I can't figure out why. I recently downsized my computer to a Mac Air to be more mobile, but I'm wondering if I have enough memory to run this program?

    No I'm not but:

    There is are no specific requirements given by Autodesk for it will run on any decent computer, else they would have specified the requirement as they do on other Autodesk programs....the specs of the Mac Air are quite good so I don't see a problem, you have plenty memory.

    Is the problem "moving" "cruising" your design in your workspace?

    Practical wisdom is only to be learned in the school of experience.

      The object being 'cruised' will suddenly fly off into the distance. I can bring it back by hitting 'fit' but it's bloody annoying. :-(
