To the new software, the most concerned issues are the new added functions. What kinds of new functions have been added into GstarCAD2012 EX? Let’s do a brief introduction:
1. Object Placement
Among CAD software, designers usually need to align multi-objects. However, the align functions in most of CAD software are boring, complicate and hard to use. So, GstarCAD2012 EX version provides many functions such as entity alignment, coordinates object arrangement and placement along X or Y axis etc. all these functions will help designers adjust the placement quickly and easily.
The align tool provides 3 align methods according to X and Y axis, it can realize 9 basic alignments very quickly. This tool has different alignment methods and includes offset option for each axis and can be combined as well.
The Arrangetool can quickly adjust the arrangement (on left, right, top, bottom, centering, vertically or horizontally)
Besides, the software also provides the function of Layoutbypath. Different to regular layout function, Layoutbypath can distribute object copies along a path (curve) with a variety of array options.
2. Text Processing
Text processing is an important function but it is always ignored by designers. GstarCAD2012 EX improved the effectiveness and quality of text processing and added many functions for text processing.
Such as, TextAlign allows designers to revise multiple texts, for example, while using this function, we can revise the alignment, height, place, rotation and patterns. Greatly and effectively improve the text revisions.
ChangeText is a function which GstarCAD2012 EX specially provides to the font pattern. According to the configuration panel, the matching method of the tool is flexible, allows users make bulk modification to several texts. For example, this function can modify the alignment, height, width, position, rotation, style and content of several texts simultaneously. It greatly improves the efficiency of single text and Mtext modifications.
3. Other Functions
Compare to the Area command, when boundary is not a single object, AreaSum can automatically search the boundary of complex graphic. After selecting multi close regions, the command line will add the current region value and area sum sequence faster in real time.
(2) Line2PL (Line to Polyline)
This function can convert one or multi connected straight line(S), arc(S) as one polyline. The operation of the function is easy and the join precision can be revised after the command.
Batpurge will batch clean up the superfluous blocks, layers, line type, dimension style or text style on several DWG files, Batpurge tool doesn’t need to open files. It executes the command of purge directly, which makes it run with very high efficiency.
The above is a brief introduction of new added functions, we will explain these function in detail later on.
