Commercial quality 2-D CAD (ASP)
PC-Draft-CAD provides features found only in more expensive CAD
systems including automatic dimensions, unlimited layers, multiple
fonts, object libraries, and dot-matrix printer support. It uses the
high resolution modes of EGA, VGA, Super VGA and Hercules displays.
"Virtual Memory" automatically uses extended or expanded memory or
disk space as necessary for drawing sizes up to 32 megabytes.
PC-Draft-CAD's intuitive user interface gives users a choice of pop up
menus or single keystroke commands. This along with complete mouse
support and context sensitive help, make learning easy while being
unobtrusive to expert users.
PC-Draft-CAD is most useful for producing exact scale drawings with
HPGL compatible plotters and dot-matrix or laser printers. PC-Draft-
CAD's vector based drawings may be directly incorporated into
WordPerfect version 5.x or other Desk Top Publishing applications that
read WPG, HPGL, or GEM Draw format.
The registered version comes with utilities to convert WordPerfect WPG
and AutoCAD DXF files for editing with PC-Draft-CAD.
PC-draft's functions include circles, ellipses, lines, boxes, curves
and arcs with varying line widths and line styles. You can create named
objects stored in libraries for use in multiple drawings. You can use
Named objects as fill patterns.
PC-Draft supports unlimited layers, multiple font styles. Text can be
rotated at any angle. Objects can be rotated, stretched, shrunk, mirrored,
cloned and scaled.
Other drawing aids let you: save and restore multiple views of the
drawing; pan and zoom; complete "undo" and "redo" delete or restore
drawing elements; display drawing grids at any spacing, with optional
"grid-lock" (Snap). You can record graphic keyboard macros for later
playback. Also, drawing elements (such as lines and boxes) may be
joined or split.
PC-Draft-CAD's object libraries containing architectural or electrical
symbols can be cut and pasted into your drawings, modified and saved.
Registered user price (full libraries, illustrated manual) $65.00
