Ralph: "saving in DWG 2004-8 formats (not 2009)"

AutoCAD 2007, 2008 and 2009 use the same DWG format. Did you mean 2004-6?


The original Autosketch was designed in house as you described. However Autodesk bought Drafix, stripped the macros out of it and renamed it as Autosketch 6.

Drafix/Autosketch was a great program that we used for many years. But with the the macros removed, DWG files that were not 100% readable in AutoCAD and little real support or upgrades from Autodesk, we ended up moving on to the reasonably priced and capable Bricscad.

Why has Autodesk waited so long to update their low end 2D program? Will people that have moved on to other programs return to Autosketch? I know we won't.

Autosketch, heh...

I still have my disc from 1997. I used it in college. My 'final' was ink on velum. I created all the views and text in Autosketch and then traced over it for an A. I told my instructor... his reply? I can't hear you! :-)
