The AllyCAD 'Intros'

 
 

The 'AllyCAD Intros' are short video clips demonstrating how quickly and easily you can produce the CAD drawing that you need for your project. The 'Intros' will be available on the new AllyCAD homepage to be released shortly.

Alternatively you can click here and request these clips via email (be sure to mention the specific clip you are interested in). The Intros include: 'Designing a Basic House Plan', 'Structural Designing in AllyCAD', 'Mechanical Designs Made Easy', 'Surveying in AllyCAD' and 'Drawing Your Invention in AllyCAD'.

BITMAP HANDLING

Bitmap Handling has been enhanced in the latest AllyCAD 3.6 version. The 'Batch Load Bitmaps' functionality allows you to load bitmaps of supported types from a selected directory. This makes for easier file management as you will be

able to store all your maps, aerial photographs, scanned in pictures of components and even your company logo in a single directory. You can also use the 'Bitmap List' function to list the unique bitmaps in your drawing while the new 'Bitmap Manager' function will list all bitmaps in your drawing whether they are unique or not. In addition, the function allows you to fix bitmap paths, load and unload bitmaps and even delete bitmaps.

The most frequently encountered file types that the program supports includes JPEG, TIFF, BMP, ECW and MrSID. In order to facilitate the automatic placement of these bitmaps, a world file of the same name as the bitmap must exist in the same folder. AllyCAD supports the following standard world files: LOG; TFW; SDW and HGR geo-referenced bitmaps. For Southern Hemisphere drawings, the sign of the co-ordinates in the world file will automatically be reversed.

AllyCAD handles very large bitmaps and after the initial time pre-processing when you load a new bitmap, the program will allow you to load, zoom and pan to the largest bitmap very quickly. You can also annotate the bitmap or trace over it to build up your drawing.
