CADtools – the early years

My first Find and Replace tool

My first Find and Replace tool

Generates a sequence of attributes
I wrote this Attribute Generator to generate series of attributes, rather than copy … click … edit … copy …click … zzzz. As you can see I’m no UI expert. It ain’t pretty but it has saved me a lot of time over the years. The settings at the top-left are for generating ACNE-compatible attributes. It also generates in the correct order so you can bulk-select them and they will be in the correct order when you make a block of them. As you can see, I lost interest when it cam to making them different colours.
some tools I have butchered in LISP
LISP isn’t my favourite language but I’ve written (and butchered) a few routines that speed up my day. Quite a few of them are modified versions of the inbuilt ones (BX-BI is ATTOUT-ATTIN with a lot less clicks). I have far more sophisticated versions in the works.

As it stands I have a ton of ideas logged in my FogBugz tracker and some of them are partially coded. I posted my survey to assess the viability of developing these with a lot more finesse to sell them, or should I just hack them together for myself?

Please, let me know by taking my survey.

CAD tools survey 2011 Results

I posted a survey at http://www.cadbloke.com/cad-tools-survey-2011/  to assess the feasibility of releasing a few of my custom CAD tools into the wild.

It may strike you as a little odd that I would be so open about releasing this info but that’s the way I like to do things. I’m not a fan of keeping secrets just for the sake of it. Also, I believe that your time spent on helping me out should have some payback, and here it is…

This page will automatically update when more results come in so, if you’re interested, come back & see how it’s going.

Here are the results
