i have a background in tool and die work and have used cadkey for at least 15 years to make wireframe assemblies and blueprints.i have been retired now for 6 years and would like to learn 3d modeling.i need help with the basics.i now use cadkey99.it works well for the basic design need's i use.i just need a little help now and then.in the file i send along i used to could use a edit-box-move command to move a hole anywhere i wanted it to go but with solids99 that just will not work.i have to undo back until i reach the problem and correct the hole location but have deleted all my work in the process and have too do it all over again.there should be a solution to this.
