Original Press Release:
Softco Releases StanConvert 5 - Old Drawing Upgrade Application for AutoCAD 2000-2004
Product Line: S-MAN AutoCAD Standards Management and Translation software
Barrie Mathews, President of Softco Engineering Systems Inc. announces the release of StanConvert 5, the most robust upgrade of its Autocad Drawing Standards Translator yet. This new release includes 3 new modules and many other enhancements for users.
In its 7th year of development StanConvert 5 now has 10 standards modules with new capability to redefine dimstyles and textstyles, update all of the drawing objects, and get rid of old styles from your drawings. Also new is the ability to perform casing changes to your named objects for ultimate drawing consistency. Other enhancements include the ability to write formatted layer data to source files, import standard layering systems to a non-standard drawing, and convert the non-conforming layers at the same time. Also, you can now safely convert drawings in the same direction multiple times, as you add new assignments to the mapping files. The lineweight and plotstyle application modules are now included in the Batch Processor, and all of the StanConvert 5 functionality is meshed into your Cad Standards menu in Autocad.
The options are unlimited in StanConvert 5. For example, in addition to the regular features automating the conversion of blocks, colors, linetypes, lineweights, and named plotstyles that have been set by the object you can apply any number of standard configurations and options. In StanConvert's BatchPro, you can apply any custom changes of your own by including a script file that calls your own programs as well as the 10 standards conversions performed by StanConvert. Conversely, you can even run StanConvert's conversion modules from another batch processor if it supports a call to a script file. The new features in StanConvert 5 enable you to apply instant clean up to non-standard drawings that was not formerly thought practical or even possible. For those of you whose companies are upgrading those millions of old drawings to new industry standard systems, StanConvert 5 is the leading application for doing this job. The ground ship product including the CD and manual sells at $339 and the download product with online manual is $289. The upgrade price is $59 by download only.
