AutoDesSys has announced a new open standard developed through collaboration with the developer of Wild Tools for PowerCADD. OpenClip is a new technology that enables seamless integration of PowerCADD into FormZ and the new Bonzai3D.
The ability to copy and paste 2D vector drawing data into 3D programs has always been difficult and required extra time, planning and sometimes work-arounds. Now with the new OpenClip technology plugin you can actually copy and paste precision vector objects from one program to another.
OpenClip technology enables seamless copy and paste of 2D vectorial data from PowerCADD on the Mac to FormZ or Bonzai3D. Once inside these program you can execute a simple extrude function to generate 3D walls.
This is great news, but I'm not sure how many people use PowerCadd. It's been 15 years since I've used it. I guess it's time to take a look at it again.
