When the Spanish first began exploring the Pacific Coast of North America, they mistakenly believed that California was an island. (Some of the earliest and most fascinating maps of the state depict it as separated from the mainland.) This is considered one of the greatest, albeit short-lived, cartographic errors.
Early mapmakers began labeling the “island” as California, the name of a mythical island in a book called Las Sergas de Esplandián, “The Adventures of Esplandián,” written by Garci Rodríguez de Montalvo. The book was part of a popular series of Spanish romance stories.
In the book, the mythical California is ruled by Queen Califa and populated only with female warriors who brandish gold weapons. They even harness their animals in gold because it is the only mineral on the island.
Over three hundred years later gold was discovered in California, making the legend partially true and earning the state its nickname: The Golden State.
COADE Releases CADWorx Design Review 2009, Providing Faster, Easier 3D Plant Design Model Review and Collaboration. go to site evo 3d review
Network Weekly News May 18, 2009 COADE announced the release of CADWorx Design Review 2009, providing for faster, easier and more intuitive 3D review of plant design models for collaboration among designers, project managers, facility owners and other stakeholders involved in the review, modification and approval of designs prior to fabrication or construction. With 3D review of models, stakeholders reduce the need to interpret designs via paper printouts and other non-interactive methods, and they can improve collaboration with tools for markups, design comments and red-lining, which helps reduce the chance for errors and omissions in the design.
The intuitive interface of CADWorx Design Review 2009 and its performance-based design make manipulating and moving around even the largest models quick and smooth. When working on multiple models with CADWorx Design Review, there is no need to manually load the separate model files that make up a design. If files are externally referenced, these are automatically included in the review model.
And, creating informative and stunning animations is simple with CADWorx Design Review. Users can set out animation paths and edit the path line at any point. The view direction on any point of the animation path can also be edited in any combination. site evo 3d review
CADWorx Design Review provides full integration with CADWorx Plant, providing the same model information as in a CADWorx design session, including descriptions, line numbers, weights and other plant design data.
