…that piss me off big time!
To give you a simple example: what had my blood pressure rising dangerously this morning was stupid program glitch that apparently is ages old and just never fixed. I tried adding generic (i.e., created in-program) bodies to a model in a Computer Aided Engineering program. It’s supposed to be a simple process.
- select menu “build”
- select “geometry” from it
- select the type of body you want (“sphere”, in my case)
- enter the desired radius in the dialog box, then click to place it (or just click&drag)
- rejoice because you successfully added a sphere that you can now reposition at will.
What actually happened is that I kept doing this, but no sphere showed up. Not even after I refreshed the model window by zooming or panning it. No sphere, me not happy.
Then, for some reason, I started the simulation and *golly*, there were fifteen spheres all over the place! AARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Little thing, big time loss today, cumbersome program handling in future. Not necessary at all – but hey, what can you ask of programmers who give away their work results for free?
Except that this program isn’t free. The academic license is over 10,000.00 Euros. Meh!
