Product News



The AllyCAD 3.6 Coordinate Table function allows you to quickly and easily create a table of coordinates in your drawing. The coordinate table is created by indicating coordinate points in the drawing and then specifying additional information or options in the Coordinate Table dialog.

Coordinate ID labels (coordinate "name") can be generated and placed in the drawing at the actual coordinate points they refer to. These labels may be automatically generated. Coordinate value labels (ie: X/Y value) can also be generated and placed in the drawing at the actual coordinate points.

In addition, existing ID labels in the drawing can be used to populate the ID column of the table as with the "Label Coords" function. An extra column can be added to the coordinate table for user-defined info (eg: comments), or a diameter value.





Knowledge Base has recently attended a Khanye meeting with the Department of Education with the intention of making AllyCAD accessible to all GET

educational institutions within the province. The program is already operating successfully within the FET educational bands. Khanye as a body has the responsibility of empowering all educators in the province with appropriate and available technology by 2012.
