What is the best format to sent CAD files to a person who does not have AutoCAD installed?

The best format is the PDF format since it is possible for anyone to open or view PDF on any device. Another advantage is that the file would be non-editable which makes it the right choice in case the owner of the CAD file does not want the PDF document to be edited by the recipient.

How does an upright piano work?

In an upright piano when you push down a key, then the mechanism inside the piano makes the hammer go forward to strike the strings. This hammer is a round stick with a head on top of it. When the string begins to vibrate it would make the musical sound which is amplified and made louder with the help of the soundboard which has been connected to the string. On releasing the key, a damper would drop back onto the string and stop the sound.

Is it worth it buying a spinet piano in order to save up on space?

1 user answered

If there is not enough space in your home, then a spinet piano is a good option for you. But this is generally discouraged since the smaller size of the spinet does tend to affect its quality with smaller keys, soundboard, string length etc making it harder to control, while also giving it a poor tone.
