I find SharkCad often locks up. If I dont save my work every 10min I lose it all. Quite an unstable program really. Does anyone know how to set an auto save or auto backup?

Also I have no idea what this is talking about when it asks to resolve links. Can someone please tell me what links are in solid modelling? And then how to resolve them?

I guess knowing this information will be to advantage. But I get this error message when I try to save sometimes.

Thanks in advance

The "resolve links" is for associativity.
So if you create a spline and extrude it is still linked to the spline. If you later change the spline the extrusion should update.
Some operations will break this and others may need you to update the link between the spline and extrusion - resolve link.
This is perhaps one of SharkCad's most important features but it does come with a performance cost.

Hi Boydage.
Different versions have different features, but this is how I set mine.
