Discussion of the series starting in MEW 274
Thanks to the generosity of Alibre, Model Engineers' Workshop Magazine is able to offer every reader of Model Engineers' Workshop a free six-month licence to Alibre Atom3D. Alongside this great opportunity, starting with issue 274 of Model Engineers' Workshop we are running a detailed tutorial series in the magazine. This page will be the 'hub' for links to example files, tutorials and more so make sure you drop in regularly to keep up to date!

Knocked this up yesterday evening, as something I can print out for as an accessory for various models. Not super detailed but dimensionally accurate (taken from one of Savage's original drawings - the US maker).

Cut/Copy/Paste via mouse alone are restricted, not because of any particular desire to prevent Atom3D users having access, but simply because opening up that 'chunk' of user interface would also give access to a whole load of other things. It would require a total re-structuring of the user interface to be able to give some of the 'expected' tools in Atom3D. That won't happen short term just for Atom3D, but may happen in the longer term as part of a wider overhaul of the technology and structure of the user interface.
