I did the tutorial but haven't really used it yet. It takes a 2D drawing and lets you build a 3D model directly from the 2D drawing views. Not real sure how beneficial it is as opposed to just creating a model from scratch.
I downloaded it and then found out it wasn't compatible with the build of Wildflower I had installed for testing. Haven't had a chance to upgrade the Wildflower instal yet. Also, Autobuildz is only available for Windoz
I finally got compatible versions of WtF and Autobuildz and gave it a test. Don't bother. I got it to work with the simplest of parts that I created just to learn the interface but it crashes on every real world example I tried.
I talked to tech support and they said that because it's a free plug in they offer no support. That should tell you something!
Sure glad we still have Cadkey99 for manipulating imported data. That's one area where PTC seems to go out of their way to make it suck.

Wow, if that's the case I wonder if they're going to offer tech support? Last time I tried Autobuildz I couldn't find a single real world part that didn't crash the program. I call tech support and they said no help was available because it's a free plug-in. I guess there won't be any tech support until 2.0 gets past preproduction though.
