Hi All

I just sent out an email to everyone who purchased the ViaCAD Tips, Tricks, and Techniques E-Book with links to an update. The update adds 30+ new tips to the book plus includes some suggestions from the readers.

This update is free to everyone who purchased the E-Book from MasterViaCAD or Encore. If you purchased the hard cover version from Amazon, you are welcome to a courtesy E-Book update as well.

Also be sure to let me know what types of tips you may like to see added in the next update.
