The eighth numbered upgrade of GeoTools since 1999, GeoTools V8 is now now shipping and available for download from our web-site.

GeoTools V8 upgrade is FREE for all GeoTools V7 users who have made the purchase on or after January 1, 2007. This also applies to all GeoTools upgrades from V6 made after this date.

GeoTools V8 comes exactly 12 months after the last numbered GeoTools version (V7) was released in April 2006.

GeoTools now begins its eighth year in the AutoCAD market. We continue to get wish-lists and user-feedback, requests from our existing users and there will be a special emphasis on meeting those requirements in the coming weeks and months. We are pleased to say that we have successfully implemented about 80 % or more of all wish-lists and new commands / enhancements and bug fix requests that were brought to our notice during the past year. And almost all of the requests have been completed in record time.

One of the main goals of GeoTools V8 has been to ensure compatibility with AutoCAD 2008. GeoTools V8 has been tested with AutoCAD 2008 and works absolutely fine. It also runs on all vertical applications built on AutoCAD 2008. If you experience any problems with your setup, we will be glad to assist.

Important note: While all of GeoTools commands are tested quite extensively before they are released, it is humanly impossible to test-run it under every different data type or operating environment. In the event that you notice any GeoTools command not functioning as expected, please bring it to our notice as soon as possible. We will attend to it and fix the problem as soon as possible.


Thank you for your continued support. As always, we welcome feedback at all times.
