Improved Support Services


Knowledge Base is shortly to expand the AllyCAD Support Team as part of a customer service improvement focus for 2008. A new consultant will be joining the team and clients will soon be able to benefit from additional support services. Further details will be provided in subsequent newsletters.

The AllyCAD Support Centre is manned by experienced professionals who have extensive knowledge of the software. The consultants work alongside the software developers and ensure that your requests are given priority and resolved quickly.



Additional Features in AllyCAD 3.6


AllyCAD 3.6 now includes Pins and Dowels in the Fastener library as well as Springs in the Components menu of the Mechanical Toolkit. Hatches can now be imported with splines as boundaries and the bitmap handling has been improved via a "Bitmap List" dialog. You can also access a Coordinate Table function in the Annotate menu displaying an advanced version of the "Label Coordinates" function. Further enhancements include the ability to apply a view twist for the importing and exporting of southern hemisphere DWG/DXF's.
