PowerCadd upgrade

Postby Paul H » Fri Feb 23, 2018 1:57 pm

Just upgraded to PC 9.1.8 and all is running well. Placing images now works without a hitch. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the upgrade. Placing images is a very important part of my work flow. I use SketchUp as a primary design and presentation tool and placing jpg images within PC & WT is critical for me.

Where is 9.1.8? Latest I find is 9.1.6.

BTW, latest WACOM driver, and PD 9.1.6 and WT10.1.3 v5 and still no variable bush size working.

I'm doing more and more with bringing material back into PowerCADD from SketchUp myself. It might be helpful to compare notes on the process. I think Greg's been doing it a lot for while, yes?

Rob, you're are doing a great job with sketchup and PC yourself from what I've seen.

Fred,

Thanks. I've been teaching SketchUp to high school students at a private school in Danbury for 5 years now, so I keep working at getting better at it. I think I might be going to their bi-annual conference in Septempber. Any other's interested?

I've been regularly bringing SketchUp elevations into PowerCADD via Layout. The only hurdle seems to be the slow LayOut print to pdf and then LO does not name the pages consistently to separate files which would work seamlessly with references in PCADD. I have to be sure to name each file to have the reference update. But I can make some changes pretty rapidly from SketchUp to LayOut to PowerCADD reference. And that's where components and 3d can payoff. Change a column or window style and have all the elevations update at once.

PowerCADD is so far ahead of Layout in presentation tools that it is painful for me to use LO for that, but some people are doing excellent work finishing in LO.

I find it painful to use Layout too after using PowerCADD. It's like getting off a Cannondale Supersix Evo with a SRAM Red drivetrain and getting on a on a kid's one speed.
