**** Headlines Today:
*** Website band-width issues fixed
Our www.4d-technologies.com and www.coordsys.com websites have been intermittently down a few times in the past several weeks and the download speeds crawled to a painfully slow experience due to bandwidth problems with our original web host. Last week, we moved our entire web-site to a more reliable service provider and the downloads speeds are now back to normal.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused to our visitors and urge you to check out our site again and complete any failed transcation last time.
*** CADPower V 16.17 Update:
*** New command added: CP_TCOUNT (CADPower-> Text-> Display-> Count occurence of text objects): The CP_TCOUNT command (or TCOUNT) is a simple text string counter. It sums up number of occurences of unique TEXT & MTEXT strings selected and displays them in a table. It is also possible to export the same to CSV file. TCOUNT is a FREEWARE command and will not expire in CADPower. This command is provided to make it easy for AutoCAD users who are used to a similar command from Express Tools.
*** New command added: CP_BCOUNT (CADPower-> Blocks -> Block-related -> Count occurence of blocks): The CP_BCOUNT command (or BCOUNT) is a simple block counter. It sums up number of occurences of unique block names selected and displays them in a table. It is also possible to export the same to CSV file. BCOUNT is a FREEWARE command and will not expire in CADPower. This command is provided to make it easy for AutoCAD users who are used to a similar command from Express Tools.
*** New command added: CP_CHECKHATCH (command line only): The CP_CHECKHATCH command is a support/debugging command used to read the .PAT hatch pattern files and produce a report of all the hatch patterns in the files found. It can also compare hatch patterns in two PAT files and report the list and number of common patterns as well as those that are found in one but not in the other.
You can use this command in AutoCAD as well as BricsCAD to investigate .PAT files easily and figure out which hatch patterns you need are missing and how best to put them in a common file that can be used by both AutoCAD & BricsCAD. This command is handy when you have to deal with drawings containing hatches that need to be shared with AutoCAD users.
