We released CADPower V 14.13 update today with two very useful CAD tools.
CP_REPURL & CP_TWEAKPOLY
The CP_REPURL command is found in Miscellaneous Tools, under CAD Procedures and is used to edit the URLs (hyperlinks) attached to CAD objects. The search/replace interface of CP_REPURL is similar to the one in CP_ZOOMTXT command and allows case-sensitive, partial and interactive search and replace.
The CP_REPURL dialog
Another new command added in V 14.13 of CADPower is CP_TWEAKPOLY. This is a tool to tweak, tweeze or pinch out a vertex from the polyline. The CP_TWEAKPOLY command extracts a new vertex, pulled out from the polyline, unlike grip-editing which allows you to move existing ones.
The pictures below will make is clear what this command does.
The many shades of CP_TWEAKPOLY in operation
CP_TWEAKPOLY was created as a result of a request from a jewelry design company which uses CADPower as a CAD drafting aid. The tweaked out vertex represents geomtery that was essential for the metal cutting tool to perform its task effectively. The tool has multi-purpose uses in CAD drafting, and I foresee many CADPower users in the AEC industries finding use for it.
