Re: AutoCad, MasterCam, CadCam Files
I hear ya Jerry, it's really sad isn't it. I guess I think of it in a way of somebody steals your truck, then the next day runs your foot over with it so you go to the hospitable just to find out the doctor that over charges you to set your bones and cast your foot up is the same guy that stole your truck! It is really a low blow to Paul for someone to get his drawings and then give them away to everyone for free so Paul has no way to make a living. It is a form of theft, unfortunately it is very difficult to catch a thief on the internet and what's more is Paul has sold the drawings asking for a little integrity among the buyers by not giving them away or posting them for free. I am not saying don't help a person that is having a problem writing the codes to make a part, just don't give away the entire set of drawings in digital format so Paul has no form of income. One challenge he has been facing is the honesty of people nowadays, every company is. I suggested to Paul that he post a downloadable copy of the blueprints online with the G codes STEP files, everything you would need to run the parts in the average CNC and the do like every other company, sell a unique passkey to open the files. Perhaps that may be the solution, Paul has access to every drawing in PDF and STEP and the G codes, he is just very selective to whom he allows the use of those files for very good reason. Paul needs to eat as well.
