Not sure if I can make the convention , but a session I would like to see is machine care and maintenance . My experience with my machine to date has been wonderful. As I look at some of the maintenance required as the machine gets older it scares me.

Great suggestion and we actually have had that class for the last two years. Each conference results in more resources for our customers. In the first conference, we introduced the Troubleshooting Guide and in this last conference, we introduced the 250 hour maintenance schedule. Who knows what we will have this conference!?....

An in depth (beyond the basics) session on the 3d/2d tools and a session on 3D modeling with other software.

Is it possible to have smaller groups with hands on instruction in a round robin setting
so everyone can attend each class over the three day period?

carve, cut, mold and sculpture corain that has been carved on the Carvewright.:D

If you changed the venue to Atlanta, I'd be happy to be a speaker....
because with $11 left in my account, I doubt I'm gonna make it to Texas. :D

I will second the suggestion of going over the 2D and 3D software in detail.

We will actually have an area that is perfect for software training, so bring your laptops.

A couple things to keep in mind if there is going to be an interactive real-time follow along course...

• attendees will need a mouse attached to their laptop (fingers on touch pads are not suitable for all software operations - been in classes where folks couldn't participate because they had no mouse)

• attendees are responsible for knowing how to operate their own computer - i.e., know basic terminology such as right...left...double-click, how to save a file and know where the heck you put it so you can find it later (!), know how to copy/paste, etc., etc.. Sounds silly to mention all that, but I have been in classes where one or two users haven't a clue on the basic stuff, and drags down the entire class session because we have to stop and teach "computer 101" ;)

Realtime classes of this sort are probably the most challenging - they generally take longer due to waiting for everyone to "catch up" before moving to the next step (generally in a group setting, I learn and retain more by watching and listening to a skilled presenter, then reviewing their well-organized handout after the class - but maybe that's just me!)

How about Video taping the seminars and selling them to people who might not be able to attend or anyonr that missed something can always go back and check the video, just a suggestion!
