Click to view contentThis seems like something everyone should care about. We will inevitably start talking about it here. Let's use this thread to post anything and everything about Covid-19 (Coronavirus disease) and not post it anywhere else on the forum.    Here's video by 3blue1brown that makes vivid the math of an epidemic like covid-19, from the exponential… (Show more)

Ask your "why" questions here.  I'll start...   Why...does SolidWorks, when I initiate a cut, more often than not go away from the part and give me the "intended cut does not intersect the model??  If the software knows where the model is, why doesn't it default to the valid direction??!!   Why...does SolidWorks place pop-ups (intended to make… (Show more)
