Sorry for late reply. After work i had an opportunity to see a friend i have not seen for a year or so.
Yeah, i did trig when i did not need to. For some reason i thought i needed to find the height of the right triangle that is created by the 15* angle and the end point to the left becuase i couldnt figure out how high i was above the CL/origin. BUT then after i sent you the message and re looked over it, i then realized that trig was not needed haha.
Thanks for the help and the images. Its is interesting to see the differences between each of the programs i use. I do have to say, i like them both and its great exp for me to learn both of them.
i dont have SU on my school machine, but i might download it today and install it. that way when i am tired of SolidWorks, i can switch over
