AutoCAD has been engaged for years in the development of customized software at the request of customers. A way to give you the maximum help and allow you to always work efficiently and quickly. If you want to automate the drawing procedures, make repetitive operations immediate, connect the graphic elements to a database usable with a simple interface or for any other need for customization, do not hesitate to contact us. Our programmers are ready to help you! To learn more, also consult our services page.
On this page you will find some examples of the many programs that AutoCAD has developed. The downloadable AutoCAD software is free and opensource, that is it comes with the source code, so you can be sure that it does not contain spyware, malware or other annoying elements of disturbance.
Our plugins are based on VBA (Visual Basic for Application) which has now become an optional component of AutoCAD. Before installing the plugins you must install VBA, freely downloadable from the Autodesk site http://www.autodesk.com/VBA-download
For ImportPoints and ImportShapes, on 64-bit Windows versions, it may also be useful to install the Windows component that allows AutoCAD to connect to data databases (Access, DBF, Excel, Text, etc. etc.).
Those who work in the field of GIS often have to use ESRI® Shape files. This simple program allows you to import SHP / SHX / DBF files into AutoCAD, connecting a copy of the tables to the graphic objects of the drawing using the database tools already present in AutoCAD.
The imported drawing is a normal AutoCAD drawing 100% compatible with AutoCAD Map 2020.
The program imports Point, PointM, PointZ, PolyLine, PolyLineM, PolylineZ, Polygon and PolygonM, PolygonZ files into AutoCAD Shape. The import of Shape files of MultiPatch files (such as 3D surfaces) is not required in AutoCAD. The linked attributes are kept in their original format (DBF), without modifying the tables during the import, but by copying them to a project folder and connecting them via an AutoCAD data connection (UDL). This program helps AutoCAD users with geographic maps in ESRI ArchView or ArcGIS format (SHP file).
ImportShapes allows you to import Shape files on different layers and with different colors or textures, automatically creating layers and blocks, if necessary.ImportPoints: to import points in AutoCAD.
This program helps those who work in AutoCAD with relevant tools or still have lists of noteworthy points in a database, in a text file, in an Excel file, in Access, in DBase (format of alphanumeric files linked to ESRI Shape ), in any other ODBC-compatible database.
ImportPoints allows you to import points or blocks with attributes into AutoCAD, transferring the coordinates and alphanumeric attributes contained in the data source, within the drawing, automatically creating layers and blocks, if necessary.
You can also assign the scale, name or layer to the imported blocks based on the values of the database records.MyHatch: to create custom hatches.
If the hatches supplied with AutoCAD are not sufficient for you, this program will solve the problem! With MYHATCH you can create your own screens from within AutoCAD. AutoCAD allows the creation of files with the .PAT extension that contain the mathematical information for the definition of the hatches. This program allows you to create these files and to store the definitions used to create the hatches within a drawing, so that you can reuse or modify them later.Raster Manager: to use georeferenced images.
Who works in AutoCAD with maps (for example the technicians that deal with the territory and public administrations) will surely appreciate this program.
Raster Manager correctly inserts in the drawing the georeferenced raster images that have a correlation file in World format (for example, typically the Regional Technical Maps - CTR) positioning them, scaling them and rotating them appropriately.
Raster Manager also allows you to create correlation files, useful for geo-referencing images in AutoCAD or other software (such as Autodesk Raster Design).
Without the need for costly investments in sophisticated software, simply position the image, and with one click create the georeferencing file.
You can also assign uneven scales on X and Y, which is normally not possible in AutoCAD, while maintaining full compatibility of the design with those who do not have Raster Manager. You will thus solve the problem of images scanned with a roller scanner, which "stretch" the one direction, distorting the result.Stadium: Design of steps and slabs.
Program for calculating the tier profile or seating arrangement to ensure the visibility of the stage.
