View Full Version : switching from AutoCad to Arch. Desktop
21st Feb 2007, 10:55 pm
we are a mass production design/builder. our director is thinking of switching us to A.D. to utilize the 3D features. Will we have to redraw our 80+ plans in Arch. Desktop, or can we set some perameters up to have our plans switch over automaticly? any other suggestions/insight would be helpful as well.

As far as I know there isn't a way to do what you're asking because ADT uses "entities" instead of lines. Someone could prove me wrong on that, so don't go off of only what I say.
You might talk to your boss about ArchT instead. It's a program that works through ACAD like a plug-in instead of a complete replacement like ADT. It's not as visually interesting, but you wouldn't have to redraw every plan. ArchT also has a better block set, both in 2D and 3D. It will also create the plans in 3D with very little work.
