Ductwork Pro for AutoCAD
|Basic Info||Feature List||Purchase/Upgrade||Support & Updates|
A major goal when this program was designed, was to give it the ability to draw 2D, 2-line ductwork drawings as fast as possible. All the other bells and whisles would be great, but NOTHING should slow down this most basic function. I think I have achieved this better than any other HVAC ductwork drafting system out there, at any price.The Pro version also includes advanced features like:
Check out the Example Usage and Screen Shots to get a feel for how the system works.
Requires AutoCAD Release 2000 or later, or Architectural Desktop 3.3 or later. I have tested it fully on all versions of AutoCAD up to 2011. It is written entirely in Autolisp. The system is composed of 16 seperate program files and menu files that automate the use of all programs. It will NOT work with AutoCAD LT.
Documentation is included in PDF format
The Users Guide is available to download. It is in PDF format. Installation instructions and a description of the full menu system is included.
The Pro version comes with additional documentation describing how to customize the system. You can learn how to add new fittings and create you own menus to use the system. A basic understanding of AutoCAD menu programming and Lisp use is necessary.
I often get email messages saying "please send more information and literature about the Pro version". I DON'T HAVE ANY PRINTED LITERATURE. This web site it is all there is.
About the Program and the Author
The DUCTWORK system has been under developement (off and on) for over 9 years. It has undergone two major re-writes. In 1992, it was completely re-written from scratch into its current, highly optimized form. It was originally one large program file and is now many smaller, modular programs, totalling over 130kb of lisp source code, that are loaded as needed.
