Looking for a few Autocad 3d users for test
« on: March 31, 2008, 09:55:55 PM »
First, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.
I'm looking for a few users of AutoCAD 2000-2009 that do 3d solid modeling on a
regular bases to beta test a 3d Multi Solid Stretch program.
Testers that give good feedback may get a full working version at the end of
the beta.
If you're interested in this great tool to compliment your 3d modeling
skills, please contact me at info@acadianagraphics.com
Thanks
Jason Rhymes

Will it have an API??

If you mean a cross platform API, then no. It's language dependent and not open source. sorry.

BTW, I've posted the beta on my website www.acadianagraphics.com for anyone to download and try but please give me feedback, positive or negative if you do.
Thanks

I half expected to get RickRolled... but it looks legit. Looking forward to the "Find Interferences" project.

Yea I'm especially interested in that.  I don't like what Autocad has right now.

I'm going to try and break this thing this afternoon.  I've been on civil projects that we do in 2D this week and last, so I haven't had a chance to use it during work, yet.  Pretty eager, though.  Multiple 3D object stretching is a biggie that Autocad could benefit from.

Scale1D is one of my favorite commands in a CAD application, Rhino

so often it comes in so handy

is that what this is planned to be?

No, this is Autocad.

If you have 2007 or better then INTEREFERE works great. The tool I have would be for older versions. Not sure if there will be enough of a demand to put it out.
What version are you using?

An older one. I had a chance to play around in ProE for a while, and the ability to show interferences saved my kiester many times, otherwise it would have been trial and a lot of error.

I don't have anyone that I know of testing the MSS routine on an older version. Did it work okay for you?

Just to bump this up, I've gotten back into some 3d structural modeling jobs again, after saying goodbye to some design/build and foundation design drawings... this tool is the stuff, man.

highly recommend anyone who does Autocad vanilla modeling to check this out if you haven't yet.

Jason'd given me a full license to test it out over the development and it's a superb piece of software, for sure.

Man, somehow I missed this way back in April!  You still looking for someone to break this?  All my modeling is 3D in vanilla 2K4........with a few "tweaks".....

I'm not sure how often he checks the Swamp, but he's always responded to email very promptly.

It's been released in full version, no longer beta, but you can always just try the demo, it's not time-period based but limits the number of objects you can modify at a time (4) instead.

Well, I just D/L'd the demo....this is a gotta-have!  WOW!  We do tons of structural steel drafting here in 2K4 vanilla.  This will save literally hours of drafting time per project!  Soon as the "Dark Lords" arrive, I'll be getting authorization for purchase.  If not, I'll buy it for myself!

A real beauty Jason!

Well, I've only been using this for two days and I don't know how I've lived without it!  I have engineers here who love to make "just a little change" on my project...sometimes 2-3 times a day.  I've knocked off AT LEAST 20 minutes today alone.  Thanks again!

I know the feeling man... Just used it to modify a platform set on wide flange columns, about 20 columns total, probably.  Simply put it on elevation view, stretched the whole thing down... wah-lah!

No more solidedit->F->M(or E) on each one, copying to replace the others
No more slicing to shorten a column then moving the rest
No more messing with the elusive Presspull, trying to find the right view that'll let you pick the right face, hoping other objects don't get in the way...

simply... stretch the platform down/up... done.  Two clicks, a base point, and another click or distance for the stretch... cake.

Top autocad addition ever.
