New CAD tools

We offer many of our utilities as free CAD tools for download. Recently released CAD utilities:

  • AutoPDF/AutoDWF is a free tool which automatically publishes a PDF or DWF copy of your drawing on every Save operation. You can set many options for the publishing process.
  • FLay reactor automatically places dimensions, hatches, texts or any other drawing objects you draw into specified AutoCAD layers (you don't need to switch layers manually).
  • TURBO is a tool which switches your AutoCAD to faster mode by setting all relevant variables influencing its performance. Worth trying if your AutoCAD works slowly.
  • DBXscanSHX scans folders for DWG files containing references to SHX files - it generates a report and you can identify possible missing SHX files. DBXscanSHX is a part of the DBX family of batch tools scanning for Xrefs, AEC objects, VBA macros, etc. - see DBX Tools.
  • PreSave reactor performs selected actions before any Save operation in AutoCAD. You can zoom, set layer, purge, saveAs a second copy to a different format, etc.

These and other similar CAD tools and utilities are available free from www.cadforum.cz/download.

Full list of AutoCAD commands

There is now a full list of AutoCAD commands and variables - including version 2011 and including undocumented commands - on CADforum.cz. You can interactively search for commands and display their names in multiple AutoCAD-languages - EN, DE, FR, ES, IT, PT, CZ, RU, PL.

Budweiser DWG benchmark

Many CAD applications and vendors claim "full" or "100%" compatibility with the Autodesk (AutoCAD) DWG file format. We have created a benchmark drawing (using plain AutoCAD) to verify these claims. So far no non-Autodesk application has succeeded to read and interpret the BUDWEISER.DWG benchmark drawing in all its tests.
BUDWEISER.DWG is now available also in the AutoCAD DWG2010 format.

Autodesk Homestyler - free from the cloud

Autodesk Homestyler (former "Project Dragonfly") is a free web application for designing 2D and 3D room layouts. You can use it for your home redesign or office layouts. Homestyler contains a large library of furniture and surface materials. Finished designs can be exported to DWG and RVT (Revit) files, or shared online. The whole application runs in your web browser.
