Nth Engine

Recommended Posts

Greetings all - 

I am on the hunt for an Nth Engine graphics card. This is a video that provided hardware zooming for AutoCAD 2.5/2.62/9. The model I had connected to the monitor via 5 BNC connectors. If you see or know of one, please let me know!

I not only remember the Nth Engine graphics card I had such a card at one time.  The feature you refer to required the use of a dongle as I recall.   You're talking around 1985.

You, that’s what I’m after. I used the Nth cards until SoftEngine was released.

Hi we have one and the user manual ... what are you offering as they were really expensive in the ‘day’ ... cheers if you give me your email address I’ll send you a photo. We happily used it a number of years ago with Eclipse before we moved to the survey processing suite Geosite and now N4ce..

As I recall we paid close to $3,000 for the Nth Engine graphics card and SoftEngine.  Probably a quarter of the cost of our "high end" computer at the time.
