The Solar System Drawn to Scale in AutoCAD DWG– Scale & Accuracy is Everything

Back in AutoCAD version 2.18, Autodesk placed a sample drawing with AutoCAD named the Solar.DWG to demonstrate the precision of AutoCAD back in the early eighties. AutoCAD was based used 64bit floating point precision and the most accurate back then. With this Solar DWG you can see our solar system in 1:1 scale in kilometer units.

Mowing Green this Weekend

In Oregon we have mild winters and as such grass in our yards are green and still grow requiring maintained by mowing. After 20 years of service with Autodesk, I was awarded a credit I could use for various gifts and I chose to green my house with a home improvement gift certificate. I have retired my gas engine lawn mower for a nice efficient Greenworks Pro 60-volt Brushless Lithium Ion cordless Electric Lawn Mower.

36 years later Autodesk is a rare technology company that is still around, innovating, evolving, and helping our customers imagine, design, and create a better world.
