Thanks for the link Ron, it looks like an interesting program. I have signed up and will have a play with it.
One downside I see to my adopting it is that I can't import my current Geomagic files so I need to retain Geomagic in addition to anything else I use.
As an exercise in collaboration, it could be interesting. I assume you would want to work in imperial measurement so I would not be interested in actually building anything since I only use metric.
I will subscribe to the thread and see where it goes. If I think I can contribute, I will let you know.
