Today is a "5 minute" post. Just a little idea I had while working in Autodesk Inventor.
In my current engagement, I've taken on creating custom content in Autodesk Inventor's Content Center. That means creating tables, upon tables of various hardware. Mostly NAS and NASM hardware.
It's not difficult, but it takes time, and it takes patience. And that means there are times that I have to leave content incomplete, not ready to use, but it's still in the shared content database, exposed to the users.
So that left me with a conundrum. How do I make sure the users don't accidentally use the content before it's ready to release?
I thought of the traditional route, which is to put "Do not use" or something similar in the family description, but then I had an idea I liked a lot better.
I decided to use an image. Just how graphical images are used to convey important information quickly
You can see the image I used in the screen capture below.
Can you guess which one you shouldn't use?
So enjoy the bit of humor I used to break up a long, tedious day. And perhaps think of how you can use that in your daily projects, for both practical purposes, and maybe a little bit of humor!
