GstarCAD is an independent CAD program for making technical drawings to scale with dimensions and hatch patterns. The drawings can be built in layers and the prints can be prepared via layouts and viewports. The program is so similar to AutoCAD that additional training is not required for experienced AutoCAD users. GstarCAD reads and creates standard dwg and dxf files that can be read by AutoCAD without any problems.
GstarCAD supports most older AutoCAD lisp programs and you can also program in VBA. The latter is very similar to AutoCAD's VBA, so existing programs can be transferred quickly. IDEOMA can support you in transferring and testing your self-developed menus and routines from AutoCAD to GstarCAD or vice versa.
You can find more information, the background and the trial version on www.ideoma.nl (put this link in Google Translate) or give us a call if you don't master the Dutch language. We are happy to chat with you English.
