Bricscad V12.1.22 - Image Performance

I thought Rakesh Rao's post on the new image handling capabilities of Bricscad worthy of a test to see whether the claimed improvements actually stack up.

Using eTransmit

Have you ever received a drawing from someone, but on opening the drawing find that most of it is missing, because it uses xrefs? Or you want to print the drawing, but don't have the pen configuration file that they used? Do you send files to clients, only to have them call and say they need you to save the drawing to an earlier DWG version, because they can't open it?

Aligning Images

Posted by Jason Bourhill on 12 March 2012 | 0 Comments

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

I often have users talk to me about their frustration of working with images on their drawings. They complain of having to repeatedly use SCALE, ROTATE, and MOVE to position their image correctly relative to drawing objects, and also find that the image can get in the way during the process. There is an easier way! You can use ALIGN to manipulate your image into place in one go, and can split your modelspace into two using the VPORTS command. Working in combination they make positioning your image a breeze.

Finding your Start In Folder using Lisp

Sometimes you may need to know what folder AutoCAD/Bricscad is running out of. This may not necessarily be the same folder as any drawings you have currently open. It is dependant on the "start-in" folder specified in the shortcut that you have used to launch the application.
