I'm new to the forums but we use FeatureCam at work. I have loaded the works disc onto my laptop which allows me to use it in evaluation mode so that I can practice at home and I also use it to create engineering drawings for my model making hobby. The problem is that I can't save anything as I don't have the dongle plugged in. Is it possible to save drawings that I create by any other means, as all I can do is print them off and then I loose everything when the computer is shut down. When I'm doing a complicated assembly drawing, I really could do with being able to save it and come back to edit it later.
I have no intention of using it for production as I just use it for drawing. I understand that FC is not a CAD package and also understand the licensce has to be bought to use it to make money, but it's by far the best software I have ever used to draw something and I'm just drawing parts for hobby use. I'd be willing to buy something to enable me to save the drawings only, if such a thing exists. I just can't afford to buy the FC dongle and don't need that aspect of the software anyway. Any help would be very much appreciated.
