IMSI/Design announced it has released DoubleCAD XT Pro v2. DoubleCAD XT Pro v2 works like AutoCAD LT but goes beyond with a host of new features and enhancements, including:
  • Drawing Compare: Compare two DoubleCAD (.2CD), .DWG, .TCW, .JPG, .BMP, or .PNG drawings for all visual differences.
  • Hatch Pattern Creator: Create, modify, and combine custom hatch patterns with control over scaling, orientation, and position.
  • Exploding Viewports: Convert visible geometry in your viewports into flattened, editable 2D geometry within your layouts, even hidden line views.
  • New and Enhanced 2D CAD Tools: Revision Cloud, Chain Polyline, Bisector Line, Minimal Distance Line, Select By Query, Transform Recorder, Surface Area Measurement, Double Point Arc tools, and more.
  • Enhanced .DWG compatibility.

  • AutoCAD Exchange, a comprehensive online community for AutoCAD users, has received nearly 300,000 unique visitors from around the world. AutoCAD Exchange is a content-rich destination for all AutoCAD software users from industries including manufacturing, architecture, and construction to network with fellow users, connect with experts, access tips and learning material such as tutorials and Autodesk University courseware, and provide feedback to AutoCAD product developers. One of the most active areas of the site is “Ask the Expert,” that provides a forum for AutoCAD users and CAD experts to discuss topics such as CAD manager best practices and user tips. There are roughly
    50 different dialogues in a given week. Autodesk is constantly refreshing the content on the AutoCAD Exchange to provide the most relevant and comprehensive multimedia tips, eLearning tools and CAD information.
