can take even longer to produce than the software code itself.
Most software available today does not come with printed manuals

Getting Started Couldn't be Funner
A new set of tutorials to assist the beginner and evaluator
of RealCAD and LANDWorksCAD software has just been completed
to coincide with the new download files for these programs on
the CAD web site. Unlike the old Getting Started tutorials that
slowly went through a single project from start to finish, the
new ones are a series of progressive and discrete tutorials that
explore the way the software works in a really fun way.
The first tutorial takes the client on a zooming trip to Zoom
Town. The student is asked to zoom-in from a large area of land
to a small town and then an allotment, then a house, then a room,
then a desk, then a letter, then even a stamp on the letter.
By moving around the drawing the student is encouraged to search
for different hidden items and use different commands to do so.
There is even a plate of left over food in the kitchen! And that's
just the beginning.
The tutorials can be used as a self-paced evaluation and learning
tool or in a classroom environment. They are supplied with the
downloadable evaluation and full CD versions of the software.
Existing users of RealCAD or LANDWorksCAD should
create a folder called 'Training' in their RealCAD or
LandworksCAD folder then download and extract the tutorials and
supporting *.CAD files into the 'Training' folder. Open and print
the tutorial as it will be easier to follow when printed.
