AutoCAD returns to Mac

There is no doubt that the Mac’s world is better, but our doubts for moving were always: and what do I do with AutoCAD? Who would have believed it, when, after 1994 AutoCAD R13c42b was the last version we saw half running on PowerMacintosh. 18 years later AutoCAD returns for Mac. Just this year it

Contours from polylines (Step 2)

In the previous post we had georeferenced an image that contains contours; now we want to turn it to Civil 3D contours. Converting image curves to digital mode For this there are programs that virtually automate the process like AutoDesk Raster Design, equivalent to Bentleys Descartes or ESRI’s Arcscan. In this case I’ll do it

Mouse’s right button

In AutoCAD’s case, it was very common to use the right mouse button to execute the same command again. In Microstation’s case is widely used to reset a command equivalent to the esc key in AutoCAD. But, since AutoCAD 2000 contextual dialog box allows other options, it is questionable whether it is better. For this,

CAD: Send backward, bring forward

When you have linear objects without thickness or fill, it seems not to be important, but sooner or later is a nuisance (Spanish idiom: “es una lata”, an extremely problematic thing); although in the layers (levels) must be the wisdom. It happens that I have this property that, when filled, covers what is behind as

GaliciaCad, many free resources

GaliciaCAD is a site that gathers a lot of useful material for engineering, surveying and architecture. Most existing resources are free, but some require to be registered with an annual membership of 20 Euros which includes a CD with 8,000 blocks. If case of being for partners, it always provides the link to download the

Geoinformatics, latest edition 2009

This, in my opinion, is one of the better positioned magazines in the geospatial topic, it has closed 2009 with a masterful stamp; in its 7 editions kept a systematic review of free software and surveying equipment, in the latter (model 8, 2009) generalizes significant trends that are taking in the geospatial aspect and the

gvSIG: 21 CAD tools

A common weakness in specialty GIS programs is its limitation to construct data with the ease that offers CAD-oriented tools. Gradually, the gap is narrowing, although it is questionable whether the GIS has had an improvement in their ability to build or CAD have implemented variants such as Bentley Geospatial Map and AutoCAD Map. gvSIG

AutoCAD, how the FILEDIA variable acts

On occasions it may happen that when opening a file, it seems that AutoCAD has gone mad and command bar says: Enter name of drawing to open < C: Program Files … The problem: It doesn’t display us the Browser dialog box used to apply the open or save files commands. This is because the
