Re: ILEXSOFT High Design Users?

I find it helpful to hear other PowerCADD user's experiences and ideas on migrating to another software when PowerCADD can no longer be used, which can happen for various people for various reasons. It will be a costly and painful experience, so finding the best solution(s) is important for those wh...

Re: PowerCADD Future

I've got Graphic and I think it can draw in scale. Maybe I'll have to start using it more. Or maybe I'll cough up the £150 for the emulator... I've forgotten about Graphite (Ashlar-Vellum). I kind of liked what I saw years ago. It seems worth checking out. The developers seem active but I haven't s...

Re: Life after/beyond PowerCadd?

Why Rhino?
ArchiCAD has 3d. Or you could use SketchUp if Rhino is so painful.

Re: Life after/beyond PowerCadd?

I started out with PowerDraw around 1988 with a Mac SE and though I trained in AutoCAD, I've stuck with PowerCADD ever since. It served me working in different circumstances and projects. It was never a barrier to fit in with the AutoDesk predominance.... Residential,multi-family, commercial, hospit...

Re: PowerCADD Future

Thank you. Todd. Many times over.

And thanks to all the people who contributed to making PowerCADD what it is (it still is!). Best of luck going forward!

Re: Dashed lines

Is there any trick to make dashes with smaller gaps to show up in a PDF file? The gaps show up perfectly if I convert to JPEG or PNG. Are you reducing the image in some way such as not printing at 100% or printing a portion of the file, reduce to fit? I haven't had an issue with dashes on most prin...

Re: What do you want?

haha no.

But I haven't updated to the latest because, in general things are fine, so I don't want to rock the boat.

What do you want?

My priority wish list items. Keeping it under 5. Humbly submitted. !. Fix WT offset line bug that crashes PowerCADD occasionally. 2. Make "shift" key change tool modes in WT again. 3. PowerCADD: provide a command that unlocks all layers (maintaining current layer setup)-- so it is easier to get at a...

Re: Life after/beyond PowerCadd?

Generally, what it sounds like is that, for a future direction, most would like some sort of basic (not BIM) 3D modeling capabilities WITHIN PC/WT with which to extract various model "views" via viewports and the rest done with PC/WT using its tools and features. Also perhaps direct import of SK fo...

Re: Life after/beyond PowerCadd?

Embarrassed to admit I had not come across the ‘Print Sheets’ feature - it’s been ‘Command-P’ for me all these years ! Would be nice if there was an option to print to a PDF set (as well as individual sheets) in the upcoming release. Thanks again ~ dF I really like the Print Sheets feature. I name ...
