External Text Editor for AutoCAD
John Goodwin writes, "For many years I have used a text editor in AutoCAD from Premiere Designs called MARED. It is a lisp based text editor which allows picking and windowing idividual non-multiline text entities and editing them in a free form editor. It has always been difficult to reconfigure Autocad to accomodate this text editor as sucessive versions of AutoCAD have been released. I have never understood why AutoCAD has never incorporated a good free form text editor in their software.
"Anyway that being said, what is out there that you would recommend?"
Electrical Software for MicroStation
Gulam Gouse Khan asks, "We are electrical engineering based department and we are using only MciroStation as a tool. We need such a software which can automatically create cross reference drawings, cable reports, BOQ, and having electrical engineering support. At the same time it should be compatible with MicroStation. Our main activities:
1. Designing and manufacturing protection systems (panels), control systems (panels)
2. We use lot of electrical components like different types of relays, breakers terminal blocks, cables etc. in our design
3. We create AC, DC, WIRING & TERMINAL drawings. Which required lot of cross referencing data.
4. We create BOQ, LIST OF COMPONENTS etc."
Got a solution?
