Script Generator for AutoCAD

October 20th, 2005 No comments

The IntelliCAD 2005 World Conference is taking place right now in The Netherlands, which reminds me that IntelliCAD is sometimes superior to AutoCAD, such as its built-in script recorder. That doesn’t mean AutoCAD users need to miss out, because DotSoft has one for you.

SuperScript (US$40) is a script generator for AutoCAD that creates .scr files that can be applied to more than one drawing file. The package includes script fragments to assemble larger scripts, rather than having to type them all in. It works with all releases of AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT, and IntelliCAD.

ProgeCAD 2006 – Working with other data and programs

October 20th, 2005 No comments

Traditional paper drawings serve only as a means of communicating information between the person who created the drawing and the person viewing the drawing.
The drawings contain no more information than what is visually imparted by the creator and seen by the viewer. ProgeCAD offers rich possibilities for analyzing drawings and attaching additional data to them.
For instance, although it may be impractical to count entities in a complex paper drawing, this task is simple in CAD.
ProgeCAD can calculate the number of entities in a drawing and compute area and distance. CAD drawings can also contain information in addition to visible entities.
You can attach invisible database information to visible drawing entities and extract the information for analysis in a database or spreadsheet.
(Working with information in a database requires a program from a third-party vendor, or you can create your own means of exporting the data in LISP, SDS, or VBA.)

ProgeCAD provides in-place editing of Microsoft objects, such as those created in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel software programs. In-place editing makes it easy to share data with other users and programs. For example, you can include ProgeCAD drawings in files created using Microsoft Word, and you can insert files created using Microsoft Word into your ProgeCAD drawings.

Secure DWF

October 18th, 2005 No comments

Graebert of Germany has developed a secure version of DWF. The Quick seCure Format (QCF) format uses strong encryption (RSA and AES) to encrypt and password-protect DWF files.

To create QCF files — use one of Graeberts (GiveMePower) software products: FelixCAD 5, FelixCAD LT, PowerCAD Pro 6, PowerCAD CE Classic, or PowerCAD CE Pro. It costs an extra e995 (US$1,200), however, to active the feature in those desktop and handheld CAD packages.

To view QCF files — use the free DwfView software (available also for handheld computers), and provide the password.

ProgeCAD 2006 – Making changes

October 18th, 2005 No comments

To make changes to a paper drawing, you erase and then redraw. With ProgeCAD, you use commands to modify entities in the drawing.
You can move, rotate, stretch, or change the scale of entities. When you want to remove an entity, you can delete it with a single click of the mouse. If you make a mistake while creating or modifying your drawing, you can easily reverse your actions.

AutoSolids Updated for 2006

October 17th, 2005 No comments

AutoCAD’s 3D solids were last updated in v2000 with the addition of the SolEdit command. The lack of subsequent enhancements has given third-party developers a niche, such as AutoSolids (US$495). It features:

– Constraint-free parametric creation and editing of solids
– Realtime previews of all solid modeling operations.
– Cutting solids with open or closed 2D profiles, direct extrusion of text objects into solids, retraction of boolean operations, and more.
– Automatic generation of multiview 2D drawings.
– Exclusive 3D command center

A demo version can be downloaded from autosolids.com. AutoSolids v3.13 supports AutoCAD Release 14.01 through 2006, as well as all versions of Mechanical Desktop and Architectural Desktop.

ProgeCAD 2006 – Reusing CAD drawings and entities

October 17th, 2005 No comments

When you create a paper drawing manually, you can draw repetitive symbols by tracing a plastic template. After you draw a symbol in ProgeCAD, you can reuse that symbol without having to redraw it. You simply save the symbol as a block. You can then insert copies of that block anywhere in your drawing. You can also save the symbol as a separate drawing for use in other drawings.

In addition, you can reuse entire drawings and insert individual drawings into other drawings. You can also use an external reference, which acts as a pointer to another drawing rather than a copy of the entire drawing. Using an external reference has an added advantage: when you update the externally referenced drawing, each drawing that references it can be automatically updated.
