What purchased add on software do you rate
« on: August 17, 2005, 04:41:47 PM »
What purchased add on software do you use regularily and why is it so good?
Also what industry do you work in?
Did you personally purchase the software or was it a company purchase?
Got any links to the sites you may have purchased the software from?

Im in the Building Services industry and looking at purchasing a new peice of software called Layer Lexicon 3.2,that allows you to create your own preset layer configurations/manipulate the layers in your drawing.Should be a great help when starting my new job, will hopefuly be able to adhear to their own layer conventions more easily.As for other add on software my previous employer just wasnt interested.

I think most employers are not generally intersted in what spftware can do for them, until they are presented with a problem that needs to be addressed ... IMMEDIATELY ...

Anyway, at my office, whatever software I recommend purchasing, we usually get. Of course there are some things we don't have that I would like, but to be honest, it really isn't needed ...

We are in Civils and we use 3 add-ons on a regular basis

Keylines (a road markings package), Autosign (a road sign making package) and Autotrack (a package for calculating turning circles/swept paths of vehicles)

If anyone wants links to the suppliers you can PM me, but I dont think that enough here will be interested to put it on the boards :wink:
Thanks for explaining the word "many" to me, it means a lot.
