SYCODE launches AutoProject for AutoCAD, an automatic 3D to 2D projection plug-in for AutoCAD

October 19, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
AutoCAD users often find themselves in a position wherein they have to create 2D views of their 3D models", explains Deelip Menezes, owner of SYCODE. “Newer versions of AutoCAD have commands to create projection views, but these commands are limited to 3D solids and surfaces only. There are no commands to project normal 3D curves such as lines, polylines, arcs, circles, splines and other objects like meshes, faces, points, etc. AutoProject for AutoCAD removes this limitation and gives AutoCAD the ability to project almost any object onto a 2D plane."

AutoProject for AutoCAD is capable of projecting 3D objects to the six standard orthographic views (top, bottom, front, back, right and left) as well as the 8 standard isometric views, one for each octant.

AutoProject for AutoCAD works with AutoCAD 2000, 2000i, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. This is in line with our commitment to develop and support plug-ins for AutoCAD 2000 onwards till it is technically possible and feasible.

AutoProject for AutoCAD is priced at 195 EUR per license and its available as a fully functional 10 day/run trial. The software comes with detailed documentation in the form of a compiled HTML help file which contains a step-by-step tutorial to get the end user started in the shortest possible time.
