AllyCAD 3.6


AllyCAD 3.6 will be released to clients later this year and features numerous enhancements. These enhancements include among others, a new autotracking algorithm for area calculations and complex hatches as well as the ability to apply a view twist for the importing and exporting of southern hemisphere DWG/DXF's.

You will also be able to import hatches with splines as boundaries and enjoy enhanced bitmap handling via a "Bitmap List" dialog. In addition you can access a Coordinate Table function in the Annotate menu displaying an advanced version of the "Label Coordinates" function.
