The Future of CAD Softwares

This is an artcile written by Jeff Ray, CEO, Solidworks and published in the Economic Times on 26thJuly,2007. I think it's a nice one to go through.

Article by Jeff Ray, CEO, Solidworks

In the article Ray has identified 5 areas in which the present day CAD softwares need to improve. The areas are
1:- Usability
2:- Speed
3:- Graphics
4:- Intelligence
5:- Automation
[Jeff Ray, CEO, Solidworks] "In the years to come, 3D CAD software will steadily improve engineering productivity by speeding the design process, suggesting options along the way, and identifying problems earlier. The software will ‘think’ for the user. It will anticipate what designers are creating. If they are creating weldments, for example, preconfigured pipes, beams, tubes, and angle irons will automatically fall into place. Software will also increasingly offer smart layout and materials options, and continuously assess the structural integrity of the design using embedded analysis software. The resulting acceleration of the design process will give designers more time, deliver the resulting product more quickly to market, and reduce the risk of failure."

31st July,2007 is going tobe the last day for filling Income Tax returns and as usual some people wake up at the last moment. The procedure is simple.

Step1:- You have to do all the calculations regarding your taxes.
Step2:- You have to get a form( ITR 1 for my case) and fill the form with all the details. Then you have to fill one acknowledgement form.
Step3:- You have to goto your nearest IT office, stand in a queue and process your form when your turn comes.
Is not it simple? [:D]

Well if you think it tobe tedious, then you have to get hold of one agent and give him some bucks to do all the work for you. Agents can be found easily. The one coming to our office charges 200 bucks, but does all the tedious work for us.
But still some people(including me) think 200 is a very high price to pay and are damn lazy to stand in queue as well. Then this year the IT guys have come up with a really innovative procedure called eFilling.

You can submit your IT return online by following process.

1. GO TO http://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/portal/index.jsp

2. REGISTER AND CREATE USER (USERNAME AS YOUR PAN NO)

3. GO TO http://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/portal/html/downloads.jsp

4. DOWNLOAD ITR-1

5. FILL THE FORM

6. CHECK THE FORM

7. GENERATE BARCODE

8. GENERATE XML AND SAVE ON YOUR SYSTEM

9. GO TO https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/portal/login.jsp AND LOGIN

10. CLICK ON SUBMIT RETURN.

11. UPLOAD XML FILE.

12. CLICK ON UPLOAD.

that's it . it's done

Then I have followed the procedures to fill my form and have submitted it. If you have not, then hurry up. [:)]

After a Long Break...

I have not blogged for over a month. I have been busy these days and have failed to come up with any posts. Then last week some of my friends asked me about my silence at the blogspot. I have never imagined that so many people read my blog and they miss it so much. One of my friends has asked me to post something regarding .NET and another has asked me to post some personal stuffs as well. So here I am again and I promise to post some nice stuffs regularly.
