toward DWG standard
Have you tried the IntelliCAD Betas? If so, would
appreciate your opinion.
Brent Koch, P.E.
I received this note from the Visio people who are organizing a
coalition to created a platform standard based on the AutoDesk DWG
format. Those interested may follow the links and join. Associate
members (which most of us are) is free and software developers who have
a vested interest in creating a workable DWG standard are encouraged to
join for as much as $25,000.00 in capital.
For those of you interested in the topics about CAD conversion,
this is an important issue.
Based on your interest in IntelliCAD(r) 98, we thought you might
appreciate knowing about the formation of a new group: The OpenDWG
Alliance. It's an association of CAD customers and vendors committed to
promoting AutoCAD's DWG drawing file format as an open,
industry-standard format for the exchange of CAD drawings. As one of the
14 founding members, Visio Corporation stands firmly behind the
Alliance's goals. We believe that having an open DWG file format will
create enormous benefits throughout our industry-especially for people
like you who rely on having access to the data in your CAD files. If
you'd like more information about the Alliance, or if you'd like to lend
your opinion on creating an industry-standard DWG file format, visit the
OpenDWG Alliance Web site at www.opendwg.org.
Your interest is welcome and your participation is encouraged.
