"Our goal is to make our clients successful by reducing its the cost and complexity of engineering" said Mr. Nainar Ramaswamy, Managing Director of DesignSense Software explaining about the purpose of this software.
CADPower is a general purpose CAD productivity tool that runs on the BricsCAD and AutoCAD platforms. It offers over 250+ tools for productivity and process, ranging from advanced Polyline management, Annotations, Bill of Quantities and Estimation, Reporting, Querying and extracting commonly required information from standard .dwg data.
GeoTools offer CAD tools for the geo-data user, ranging from coordinate annotations, drawing of map grids, coordinate conversion, Civil tools, Google Earth interaction and so on.
“Both products have one single goal in mind – to eliminate difficult, repetitive & boring tasks by automating & packaging them into defined workflows that the software plays out for you” said Rakesh Rao, Chief Architect of the products.
“GeoTools & CADPower offer light-weight, easy to use solutions that complement BricsCAD nicely and extends its power significantly” said Serge Jonnert of CADREBEL. “With a proven history of 16 years in the CAD market, these are established products already and now available on BricsCAD”.

We released GeoTools-CADPower V16 last week. During the life-cycle of this release, we promise to deliver a number of fixes and enhancements to ensure that you have a predictable user experience running our software under all environments and versions of supported CAD platform.
Here is the first of our update V 16.01:
GeoTools V 16.01, What's New?
GT_SLOPEDISPLAY - GeoTools -> Civil Tools -> Color-coded slope display of TIN faces:
This tool color codes 3d polygons based on their slope values.
The default slope values in percentages was limited to a range from 0% to 100% (45 degrees slope). This resulted in not being able to display slopes greater than 45 degrees. This has been fixed. The slope ranges have now been increased to 2000% which is a 87 degree slope, perhaps the maximum you can encounter in real life.
A new option to display slopes in degrees is being developed, and is expected to be available in V 16.02
The dialog box settings were not saved in memory for the next session until the command completed its operation.
This has now been fixed. Upon exit from the 'Settings' dialog box with an 'Ok', the settings are immediately saved in the registry.
GT_PROFILE:GeoTools -> Civil Tools -> Draw cross-sectional profile from 3D Polyline
A number of changes have been made to this command based on user feedback.
Chainage output file format changed to CSV to facilitate easy export to Excel. A comma is now used as a delimiter (instead of fixed field length space delimiters earlier) for the same reason.
The chainage output file format has changed slightly. A new field called 'SerialNumber' has been added to track count of the records. The 'Height' field has been moved to the end, after Easting and Northing.
Incorrect profile layer classification bug fixed.
CP_CGRID: CADPower -> Draw -> Geometry -> Construction Grid
The grid lines, labels and the baloon circle now can be created in their own layers instead of everything being on the current layer.
The CP_CGRID command dialog box resized and the height has been reduced. This enables the dialog to display correctly under all display resolutions.
CP_TC: CADPower-> Text-> Creation-> Draw Quick Text (running numbers)
The CP_TC command dialog box resized and the height has been reduced. This enables the dialog to display correctly under all display resolutions.
- Minor improvements and fixes in readme file and messages
GT_CHAINAGE: GeoTools -> Civil Tools -> Annotate chainages along a route
Improvements have been made in this command. The entire chainage data information is now written to CSV file which can import into Excel directly.
If the 'Set Value' or 'Trim characters' option of this command results in an empty string, the text in question now gets deleted and does not result in a null-text entity. This results in a cleaner drawing with no phantom text objects.
Changes to the CADPower macros:
S (SCRIPT) has been removed. S now defaults to STRETCH
D (DIST) has been removed, D now defaults to DIM
LA (LAYER) command-line version has been removed, now defaults to the dialog version
RAP Technologies has been a very successful CAD business since the past 12+ years in India and have built a solid reputation for themselves as a reliable source for off-shore CAD programming, product development, 3d design and drafting services.
As a neutral CAD service provider, RAP Technologies under the guidance and vision of its Managing Director, Mr. N Pakutharivu, built strong competencies in Autodesk, BricsCAD, ZWCAD, SolidWorks and other CAD platforms and delivered services to global and local customers for over 21 years. They have also been involved in complete product development for a leading Swedish company which is today used extensively in Europe.
With first-hand user and development experience in multiple CAD platforms, Mr. Pakutharivu zeroed in on BricsCAD and saw a great opportunity to represent the product in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry areas. This is the first time the company has moved out of its CAD services portfolio to represent a CAD platform in India, and we are happy that they have chosen BricsCAD after a very thorough evaluation.
We welcome RAP Technologies, the latest addition to our family of resellers across India.
"The true strength of software is not about being low-cost and what kind of look-alike screens it produces. It is about using software productively on a longer term without crashes and corrupted data. It is about migrating all custom Lisp, C++ and .NET into the new platform with no code re-write. BricsCAD passed all of these tests with no stress" said Mr. Pakutharivu. "We are excited about introducing BricsCAD to the large manufacturing and AEC industry in the region".
We all make hundreds of choices each day. Coffee or Tea? Car or Bus? Apartment or House?
For dwg CAD users, the dilemma is: "How to choose the right CAD software?" We will give you compelling reasons to make it easier for you to choose.
Join us on April 9th, 2014 as we take you on a tour of BricsCAD V14 , a native .dwg CAD platform that offers 2d and 3d in one single environment - at a compelling price - running identically in Windows and Linux - and fully compatible with AutoCAD practices.
