Capability: I/Vector 4.0 is a 32-bit raster-to-vector translator that converts scanned images to vector DXF (AutoCAD Drawing Exchange Format), DGN (MicroStation
), or DWF (AutoCAD Web format) files with recognition features for geometric drawing elements.
The extensive mapping project required accurate coordinate conversion, file conversion from Microstation
to AutoCAD, and rubber sheeting of a database encompassing 648 separate files representing a 162-sq mi area encompassing the corporate limits of Springfield plus a 1-1/2 mile buffer zone.
This newest release adds to LinkFixer Advanced's current ability to move and rename Microsoft Office file types such as Excel, Access, Word, PowerPoint and other types of files such as PDF, HTML, AutoCAD, MicroStation
, PageMaker and Windows shortcut files, without causing broken links.
Cimmetry Systems Corporation, Montreal, an Agile Software company, has launched 2D and 3D native document visualization for MicroStation
V8 XM, OneSpace Designer Drafting (ME10) Version 14.xx, and SolidWorks 2007.
The CAD program, which is used for many types of design, including architectural and mechanical engineering, benefits students because they can later switch to MicroStation
or AutoCAD programs with little retraining time.
Edge-of-pavement elevations were isolated on a separate Microstation
level (Intergraph Corporation, Huntsville, Alabama).
"We are using the time we have to train, cross train in Microstation
and Autocad, standardize, mentor skills in things from drafting to leadership," said Pamela Bain, president Bain Medina Bain, Inc.
Several beta applications are available immediately: a public beta trial of Google Earth Extension for AutoCAD-based applications; a translator for sharing AutoCAD DWG and Bentley MicroStation
2D V8 DGN files; a Web client for viewing DWF files without downloading any software; a utility for storing a copy of vaulted data: and a technology preview that allows users to convert non-native 3D parts into fully featured Inventor parts.
Capability: I/Vector 4.0 converts scanned raster images to vector DXF (AutoCAD Drawing Exchange Format), DGN (MicroStation
), or DWF (AutoCAD Web Format) files with improved recognition features for geometric drawing elements.
Projects under current development use AutoDesk's AutoCAD, Intergraph's MicroStation
, CLM's CEAL (Civil Engineering Automation Library), and the EDS GDS.
