Feature Focus

AllyCAD visual snaps   Visual Snaps with GrabAll mode
Visual snaps allow you to see where a snap will be applied as you move the cursor. The screen will be dynamically updated to indicate where the nearest snap point is and in GrabAll snap mode, it will also indicate what type of snap point is nearest.


AllyCAD print drawing space   Print / Publish the Drawing Space / Multiple Layouts
The 'Publish Layout' function allows you to save one or more layouts to disk as separate drawings, and has now been extended so that you can print multiple layouts in one operation.



Purchase AllyCAD before the 1st March price increase

Make sure you purchase additional copies of AllyCAD before the end of the month when we have our annual price increase. You can purchase direct through one of our account managers. Email info@knowbase.co.za with your requirements.


Exchange Rate makes AllyCAD even better value compared to imported products

Not only are we the number 1 solution for powerful user-friendly CAD software, but due to exchange rates, our software is comparatively very well priced too! Our local clients benefit from not having to pay higher prices due the weakening Rand, and our international clients are having a field day at being able to buy our software at a cheaper rate due to the Rand's value... it's a win win situation for all!

    AllyCAD 3.6 no longer supported
    It has been 6 years after all!
    Unfortunately the time has come that AllyCAD 3.6 can no longer be supported by Knowledge Base. Most other software vendors retire software after just 1-3 years and stop supporting it. We have supported this version for nearly 7 years! The software will still obviously work but we will not assist with support calls and no more improvements or bug fixes will be issued for these versions.

    If you are still using these old versions, now is the time to upgrade to the latest 2013/14 version. Contact charles@knowbase.co.za to organise your upgrade.
