    Nvidia quadro 600 1 GB Promo graphics

    You mean the drawback of Quadro with Alibre? I guess none. I am using NVIDIA Quadro NVX 135M for both Alibre and CoCreate. It works sweetly. The model is Dell Latitude D830, of course CoCreate runs like native, but Alibre also runs well, at least no failure no mishaps, nothing wrong with it...

    Drawing pipe fittings

    pesky assembly problem

    Hi. I wonder if you could attach your assembly here so we could investivate the issue. Or if you could reproduce it with simpler assembly, then you don't have to show your specific assembly in public. Note: you would better export it as Alibre.step so the whole assembly would be bundled...

    Part mass increases when inserted to an assembly

    I once was unsure of the assembly weight... I made an assembly with two pieces of part. One steel and the other aluminum. I upload it so you don't have to make it. It seems the total weight is fine....

    2011 AD-PRT to 11.2?

    Quite often than not, the text file Alibre.stp could be edited and replaced version numbers with older version number to make it usable with older version. Note, you need to make a reference Alibre.stp text file from both version to see how you need to replace the version numbers. Cheers.
