Annual General Meeting

This month’s meeting will contain the AGM and the requisite elections and reports. An important occasion, since we will be formalising the union between Vicaug and OEAUG. If you (or anyone you know) feel you want to take on a committee role, please let us know, either on the night or, if you can’t make it, send us an email. It’s not at all onerous and a great way to while away a pleasant evening chin-wagging at the home of one of the committee members.

Model Documentation with AutoCAD 2013

Continued from the June meeting. One of the big features (yes, it’s a feature, not a bug…) of AutoCAD 2013 is much improved model documentation. This is when you take a 3D model, constructed of solids, and use it to produce 2D documentation. If you’ve used the mechanical flavours of AutoCAD, you’ll find it familiar. We started to work through in June, but got only half way through! So tonight we’ll do the other half. If you’ve got the work books from that meeting, please bring them along. Otherwise, please let me know if you need a copy. I’ll print them as required, plus a couple of extras.

Please check the Vicaug blog at for the minutes of the last (2011) AGM.

Lots of Discussion of Interesting Stuff!

“Round table” discussions of any AutoCAD problems you might have (and hopefully the solutions!) plus the usual News, AutoCAD Tips and friendly chat about whatever we find interesting (not necessarily CAD-related!).

Bring along your USB memory keys etc. and you can get a copy of some of the items demonstrated.

All Welcome!

As usual, food and drinks will be provided, along with the opportunity to meet up with fellow AutoCAD users.
