GeoTools 11.06 update:

New command added:

GT_DWGBROWSER command (Miscellaneous Tools - )

The GT_DWGBROWSER command is used to browse DWG files from multiple folders with an option to view a thumbnail image of each file inside a preview window. The selected file can then be inserted into the current drawing. You can specify a set of your favourite folders, give them a description each and store the settings in an ASCII INI file for subsequent retreival. By default, the file will be called DWGBROWSER.INI and will reside (or be created) in your current drawing folder. Additional block insert parameters like x, y scale factors and rotation angles can be pre-set or specified on-screen as desired.

This is the last week for existing pre-GeoTools V10 users to upgrade to GeoTools V11 at 'upgrade' prices and not fresh license prices.

GeoTools SPECIAL Summer offer: 'Migration plan for pre-V10 users':

Four Dimension Technologies is pleased to announce a special, one-time, limited period upgrade offer for ALL pre-V10 GeoTools users.

All users of GeoTools V9 and below can now purchase the latest version of GeoTools, V11 at the current upgrade prices as shown below:

Single user upgrade : USD 79.95
4-user upgrade : USD 245.0
10-user upgrade : USD 400.0
20-user upgrade : USD 800.0
Unlimited site license upgrade : USD 2000

As per our standard policy, the upgrade purchase price would have been possible only for users who are one version behind the current version.

We are relaxing this policy until July 31, 2010 and EVERY paid user of GeoTools (yes, even a GeoTools V1 user, who bought in 1999) can upgrade to GeoTools V11 at the prices shown above.

We realize that many of our older users are still using AutoCAD versions 2002 and earlier. Please be aware that the latest version of GeoTools will work only with AutoCAD 2004 and above.

All the new upgraded users will be entitled to the same level of support as any other GeoTools V11/V10 user.

What do you have to do to avail this offer?

Simply send us proof of your purchase and the number of licenses you own. If you cannot fish out the necessary info, send us your name and company name (if applicable) and we will try to locate you in our database. After that, all you need to do is go to our online purchase page and place an upgrade order.
