DodoCAD Version 0.3 Released
2004 August 12
DodoCAD (http://dodocad.sf.net) is a Free suite of AutoCAD utilities
licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). The project is
also a framework for further development of these tools and
information particularly related to Architecture and Engineering.
This release includes a fix that was causing problems loading DodoCAD
when profiles weren't being used. New tools include Join Lines, Break
at Point, Weld Lines, Revision Cloud, Areas of Polylines, Attribute
Box, Duplicate Removal, Flatten, Global Properties change for
plotstyle, and new Property linetypes. Also completed was the new
slide browser that we hope to use in upcoming releases for the
selection of objects, templates or other routines.
o Profile path checking now handles unspecified situations which was
preventing DodoCAD from loading in some situations.
o Added Join Lines (JOIN) to connect two lines together at their
o Added Break at Point (BRR).
o Added Weld Lines function to connect two different lines between
their farthest endpoints.
o New Revision Cloud (REVC) drawing tool.
o Added Areas of Polylines (AREAS) to total polyline areas in square
acres, feet and inches.
o Created Attribute Box (ATTBX), a routine to create a
three-dimensional rectangular block with a description tag based on
distances entered by the user. The corresponding Attribute Box Edit
(ATTBXE) then makes adjusting these dimensions very quick.
o New Duplicate Removal tool.
o Added Flatten command to change Z-coordinates to 0.
o New Global Properties change option for Plotstyle.
o Created PROPERTY, PROPERTYX2, PROPERTY2 linetypes.
o Adjusted FIRE* linetypes to slightly smaller length.
o New slide browser. While not enabled this version, future releases
will display thumbnails for the user to select blocks, templates and
other inserts through previews.
