The part I really like is that the HVAC plans have to be done to the stage of specifying the exact equipment (to the model number) on the plans and I am also now having to add an appliance list showing the approved energy star appliances that will be installed. Alll prior to issuance of the permit to construct

  11. Gentlemen, I have placed a dishwasher in a cabinet, and it fits fine, but when I do an interior iso, tt move to the back of the cabinet. I pull back into place, but it moves on its own back to the translated position. I have included two screen snips showing the problem. Does anyone have an idea of what I am doing wrong. Merlin

  14. You know, Dell makes a Precision Notebook Workstation in 15" and 17". I have a 5 year old one and run x10, SolidWorks, ProE, etc one it. Not cheap, (approximately 5K or so) when configured with the top nvidia graphics card, memory and disk. But then I was paying $4500 for just the video cards for the workstations when I had 7 engineers working for me in Boise. You get what you pay for especially in workstations / video.
