As for that CAD program it all depends what format it saves in, there are a slew of Mac CAD programs available that I would guess at least one of them can open, edit, and resave as a format that I-deas saves in. Unless it uses it's own proprietary file format used by no other programs, which if it does the odds of a person being required to use that program on the job would be much slimmer, than a more popular program like AutoCAD.
autocad is only more popular because it is much cheaper. all american car companies use i-deas. i-deas saves in what i believe is a unique format, my CAD/CAM teacher told me that there is no program that will be able to edit them to the full extent, and ideas runs near $3000 per insallation license. on the program menu they had a special plugin that downloaded tutorials for certain companies, there were a lot of big engineering companies out there, so clearly it is the program of choice.

Thanks for stating the obvious. I think we all know what CADs are used for.

google isnt monopolizing anything... they are just an all around company. you have to own every other company in a competing field to be a monopoly... wow. first of all, there are many ad companies out there. almost all the rest of googles products are free so if their ads show up everywhere, then yes, but the fact that that is highly unlikely, probibly not.

Google Ads have revolutionized advertising on the internet. Instead of a website having annoying pop-ups that can be blocked, they allow advertising on the website AND pay you for using it..I'm doing it, it's great.
