    one last thing...the work i do CANNOT be done in Onshape. Architectural work cannot be done in that program...the only advantage is the cloud ability which has its pros and cons.. also only the VGM can handle the large models that I am working on...cloud base cad has not overcome this hurtle.

    now that I have experienced "death" and came back...i'm thinking that 5 chrome books scattered around, attached to cloud based cad, is safer than my single mac pro. My entire office is locked up in that thing...yes I have dropbox etc...but to KEEP running is another story...I would have been down for several days had I needed to buy another mac pro.

    Was contemplating what it would take to get up and running again had a fix not been found. (2hrs search and fix) dropping $3500+ on a new mac pro just to run my VW? Onshape (cloud based cad) I could have gotten by with a chrome book...

    It started with not being able to cut and paste in VW worksheets... could not cut & paste the symbol name into the work sheet...as shown above. was ready to blame VW... restarted and ALL my apps said this... every single app...NOTHING worked... this fixed it... https://techwiser.com/fixed-macos-error-you-cant-open-the-application-because-it-may-be-damaged-or-incomplete/ I have never experience this type of fail in all my life.

    you made the VGM too good and now EVERYONE wants to see the model...its a big big hit...all the cad people on the team are yielding to the model... once done with the model, then they will make their 2d drawings to represent the final.

    need to be able to give the structural engineer a small notification to check out what I have done so far so I don't get too far off track... without making a sheet that has a title block and issue release information that all needs to be cataloged...yes I can send a screen shot but I want him to fly around and measure things and post a comment right on the object...THAT'S the future.

    i know that there are work arounds to the above VW concerns (its not just VW but any desktop based cad)...but its all a headache for me... my Fabrication drawings in Onshape...no headaches at all...its getting done as we speak

    now as for my "60min vs 28 days.." comment above... I already have someone part time to help with my work load for all my shop drawings which are done in Onshape and exported to the master VW model. but for my VW work...now 35 days...still trying to figure it out...(do i buy her a new computer?? do i buy another mac or windows and let her borrow? does VW work on a chrome book?)

    the whole idea of showing up in a few months with a set of drawings to show the team is a old old paradigm...
