Went to download two models tonite. First model - downloaded as usual. Nothing out of the ordinary. But the second model - a box appeared, “Just a few questions.” I did not see an “X” to close the box, didn’t see a “not now” or “maybe later,” or even a “don’t ask again.” Clikking out on the main page didn’t do anything. So I reloaded the page. Ah…it’s gone. Clikked on the model’s download button and WHAM!! Here’s that box back.
It says that setting my country allows [Trimble?] to filter content according to my location. Why does content have to be filtered for me? Why does content have to be filtered based on my location? Does this mean if I search for a German schrank, I will be presented only with those created in the US?
It also says that setting my industry helps me to find content relevant to my work. I don’t have an industry, and my work varies. When I go looking for something in the 3DWH, I know what I’m looking for. I don’t care if the model was created by someone in the US or in Timbuktu. Tonite I might be looking for a rocking chair… tomorrow, a fishing reel… next week, a saguaro.
That box even wants to know my language. Is Trimble going to filter out everything that isn’t, in my case, English?
