In response to Autodesk launching AutoCAD 2005, Stardraw announced that all of its subscription-based applications have been upgraded in support. Support is bi-directional, which means that you can read and edit any .DWG version and save to any .DWG version. This enhancement represents a total rewrite of Stardraw’s DWG engine.
According to marketing director Rob Robinson, “Full compatibility with AutoCAD in both directions is an important part of the value we offer systems integrators. It allows them to communicate and exchange information with architects and planners quickly and easily because nothing is more frustrating than finding that you can’t read the data you have been given or that you are unable to export in the required version. Integration is a key part of what we do. We therefore felt it vital to react in a timely fashion to AutoCAD’s latest release so that all of our subscribers can benefit.”
Holders of a current subscription can upgrade for free as part of Stardraw’s regular feature update program. For further information, please visit www.Stardraw.com.
