DansMark CatalogPartMaster v1.0.0

Cost: See below


CatalogPartMaster is a lisp routine that uses the same 3D drawings CatalogMaster used to create your parts-catalog with.

  CatalogPartMaster creates 7 different views of each part (2 more views are optional), and places them in specific directories, then creates a lisp program (and the matching ".dcl" dialog) that reads the directories of your part views.

  This is a custom program that reads each part-category and allows the drafter to insert up to 9 views of each part into a drawing (2 views are optional).
  Add a little more programming, and the parts can be made to interact with other parts, even create complex drawings.

This is how it works:
  CatalogPartMaster searches each individual directory (with up to 9 subdirectories), for parts, and creates a Visual-Lisp program to control all the parts in those directories.
  A ".dat" file is then created of all the parts, then CatalogPartMaster opens each part, creates an image (.sld) of each part, and creates a Visual-Lisp (.lsp), & Dialog (.dcl) program to show all the part views, in each of the subdirectories.
  When the user opens the CatalogPartMaster program, the user can see each part, in any view! (up to 9 views: Front, Top, Left, Right, Section, Isometric, 3D, Front-Mask, Top-Mask).
Front-Mask and Top-Mask are optional!

  Pick the front-view, the image changes to the front-view, pick the top-view and the image changes to the top-view, ect...
Click "Ok", and the user inserts the part in the desired view.
Saves Cad designers hundreds of hours a year!

Front-Mask and Top-Mask are 2D drawings that simulate 3D drawings! Really Cool!
They cover everything behind them, eliminating then need to trim! What a time saver!

Example of how the user's program works:
  The CAD designer opens the desired CatalogPartMaster program from a drop-down list of CatalogPartMaster programs in the standard AutoCAD menu (located in the top portion of the screen).
  The part-program is a dialog that shows all the parts in that category as an image. Just open the program click the part you want to use (either click the image to cycle to the next available part, or pick the part from a drop-down list), then pick the view you want to use and click the Ok button.
  Now place the part in the drawing at the desired location, and rotate to the desired position. Simple!
  Some, or all of the parts, can have additional Visual-lisp programming that controls the behavior of the part.
Most parts can have additional programming that controls any condition of the part. Longer, wider, deeper (X,Y,Z values), or controls how the part is to react as other parts are placed in the drawing.

Your only limited by your imagination!
The sky's the limit!
