AutoCAD 2012: Multifunctional Grips

In the list of new features added to the AutoCAD 2012 is Multifunctional Grips.

Before describing the new feature let us first understand What are AutoCAD Grips?.

When you select the AutoCAD object without giving any commands it shows the blue square. These blue square are called as Grips (Shown in following image). If you don't want these blue square you can cancel these blue square by pressing ESC.

Now coming back to AutoCAD 2012. In AutoCAD 2012 when you take your cursor over these Grips it shows the shortcut menu from which you can select different relative available options. For example if you select line then it will show Lengthen / Stretch option. Same case is with other objects. As per the object selected relative options are available. This has been shown beautifully by Heidi Hewett in following Video.

Nx 7: What's New

How good is myigetit CATIA / SolidWorks / Nx Training?

Some of the obvious questions that may arise in any one's mind during myigetit.com review are:
1. Is it worth investing in myigetit.com's training courses? 2. How good is myigetit CATIA / SolidWorks Training?
Normally we consider two factors in any decision process, Cost & the Quality. As far as cost is concern it is very easy to compare it with other available options & can be concluded quickly. In fact there is no doubt about the cost, myigetit.com is the lowest among the available options.
Then the question remains that of quality. As far as quality is concerned, we will have to find some trustworthy sources. In this post I have tried to collect some of the available third party references that may be useful. These sources are as follows:
