New in the 2015 Version
  • Splines may now be edited by adding, inserting or deleting fit points using the right-click context sensitive menu.
  • Layers may now be grouped and selected using layer filters. This makes working with multiple layers more convenient, especially for drawings with a large number of layers.
  • You may now use the "*" and "?" wildcard codes for locating text. In addition you have the option to either select all the found text items or to zoom in to consecutive text entities that satisfy the search criteria.
  • Exploding an attribute converts the attribute text to a single or multi-line text entity.
  • Pan a layout viewport and 'step into model space' from the viewport directly.
  • Arcs and circles are now exported to Google Earth KML format as well as lines and polylines.
  • Pattern origin on hatch tool bar. This new feature means that hatch patterns can now be adjusted to line up with your hatch boundary. A bricks pattern, for example, can be aligned with a wall elevation.
  • The Visual Snap indicator is significantly faster to work more effectively on large drawings.
  • The Snip function no longer explodes lightweight and 3D polylines or arrows.
  • Diametric dimension arrows can now be drawn on the inside or the outside of the arc/circle depending on where the dimension text is placed.

Project Showcase

Missionvale Section 4

Engineering Advice and Services were appointed to undertake the Design and Implementation of Civil Infrastructure services for 950 Low Cost Housing units in Missionvale Section 4 & 5 in Port Elizabeth. Civil Engineer Siyabonga Bana explains:

"We used AllyCAD and Civil Designer to complete detailed designs of water reticulation, sewer reticulation, roads, stormwater reticulation, attenuation ponds' sizing and bulk earthworks for the township development. The most challenging part of the project was designing sewer, roads and stormwater services on an already developed area with relatively flat terrain.

The project is currently in the construction stage and is scheduled to be completed in four months time."

    Sentinel SL Security
    Licenses can now be authorised via Sentinel SL security which means that in addition to hardware (USB dongle) based license protection, you can protect and control the distribution of your company licenses via a soft-key system.

    The software-based licensing system simplifies activation and gives you more control and flexibility over the allocation of you company licenses.


    AllyCAD HOME
    If you are already enjoying AllyCAD's intuitive and time saving design tools you may want to purchase a HOME version to use for your home projects. AllyCAD HOME is nominally priced and can be downloaded here.

    If you own a copy of AllyCAD HOME and now require more drawing size capability, we would be glad to offset the price of the HOME license that you have when you purchase AllyCAD INNOVATE. Please Contact us for more details.
