Updated AutoCAD Plot Utilities for AutoCAD 2006

April 29th, 2005 No comments

Autodesk has created some unsupported free utilities that have been on the Autodesk support web pages for AutoCAD 2004. I have included below the updated AutoCAD 2006 versions of the tools.

CTB to PCP Converter (AutoCAD 2006 version)
This tool provides a way to export a PCP file from a CTB plot style table. By using this routine, you are accepting all the terms and conditions of the enclosed User Agreement. Download ctb2pcp.zip

CTB and STB Printing (AutoCAD 2006 version)
This tool provides a way to export CTB and STB plot style tables to a comma delimited text file. The comma delimited text files can be imported into a spreadsheet program (e.g., Excel) and be printed or be compared with another. Or the text files can be printed out directly. By using this routine, you are accepting all the terms and conditions of the enclosed User Agreement. Download tableprint.zip

ProgeSOFT IntelliCAD – Using islands and island detection

April 27th, 2005 No comments

Islands are closed loops that reside inside other closed loops.
ProgeSOFT IntelliCAD provides island-detection options so that you can specify which islands, if any, should be considered in the area selection for a boundary.

The following figure shows a rectangular polyline with two islands.
The circle is referred to as the outer island, and the octagon is referred to as a nested island.

Image16

You can choose from three island-detection methods.

•  Nested Islands  The outer entity and all its islands are considered for the polyline.
•  Outer Only  Only the outer entity and its outer island are considered for the polyline.
•  Ignore Islands  Only the outer entity is considered for the polyline.

To draw a boundary polyline

Advanced experience level
1  Do one of the following:
   â€¢ Choose Insert > Boundary Polyline.
   â€¢ On the Draw 2D toolbar, click the Boundary tool ().
   â€¢ Type boundary and then press Enter.
2  Specify the set of entities that you want to define the polyline.
To use all entities in the drawing, select All Visible Entities. To select specific entities, click Select Boundary Set, and then select the entities.
3  To complete entity selection and return to the
    Boundary dialog box, press Enter.
4  Choose an island-detection option.
5  Click Select Area.
6  Specify a point in the area whose closed perimeter
    forms the boundary.
7  When you have finished, click OK.

VectorWorks: First CAD Compatiblewith Tiger

April 27th, 2005 No comments

This is something not too many CAD vendors can announce: “Nemetschek North America announced today that VectorWorks 11.5 is fully compatible with Apple’s latest operating system, 10.4 or Tiger.”

I suspect that most CAD vendors would curl their lip, and respond, So what?” Here’s what Macintosh users of Vectorworks can expect from the updated operating system:

– Increased speed of object selection.

Oh. That’s it?

There’s also a warning from Nemetschek North America: “We recommend that users confirm VectorWorks and Tiger function well together in their environment, and schedule the upgrade so the transition will not affect important deadlines on their active projects.”

ProgeSOFT IntelliCAD – Drawing a closed spline

April 20th, 2005 No comments

You can draw a closed spline, which is a spline for which the start point and endpoint are the same.
Because the spline is closed, you specify only one tangent.

To draw a closed spline

1  Do one of the following:
   â€¢ Choose Insert > Spline.
   â€¢ On the Draw 2D toolbar, click the Spline
      tool ().
   â€¢ Type spline and then press Enter.
2  Specify the first point of the spline.
3  Specify the second point of the spline.
4  Specify as many more points as you want.
5  When you have finished, in the prompt box,
    choose Close.
6  To complete the command, specify the tangent point.
