As mentioned in a prior post,Velocity is the speed at which your environment is moving or embracing change. Velocity goes beyond just speed.  If it were just speed then those that moved the fastest would always make the most progress.  While rate of change is important,so is the direction of the change. Velocity is defined […]

Momentum is defined as the power that is resident in a moving object. The amount of momentum that an object has depends on two physical quantities: the mass and the velocity of the moving object in the frame of reference. In physics, the usual symbol for momentum is a bold p (bold because it is […]

Loss of Momentum can happen and it will slow your CAD efforts down. Momentum, from a physics perspective, is constant in a closed system.  “Total momentum of a closed system of objects (which has no interactions with external agents) is constant. One of the consequences of this is that the center of mass of any […]

Wow – what a day! It started off with my virtual class not running as it should have.  Tech troubles on the back side I suppose. Oh well. Then off to my first class presentation.  Technology Transitions.  Quite a few int he room were making the move to 3D and we discussed how this transition […]

The classes have not really started for the general attendees, but there are many things going on today. There was the ADN Conference and ATC Summit and the Design Computation Symposium plus the Design Technology Management Conference (really sad I missed this one.) I spent most of my day in AUGI matters. Meeting with others […]

Autodesk University is kicking off in Las Vegas on Tuesday,but there are some things going on before then. I arrived today (Sunday) around noon Vegas time (I thought there was no time in Vegas).  Checked into the hotel and went directly to the Speaker Ready Room.  I had to record my first class for AU […]
