ODCLASS is an application prototype for object drawing and object characteristics’ definition based on Xrecord in Autodesk® AutoCAD®.
The possibilities for increasing the productivity and quality of drawings/object models, drawing processing capabilities build-up, and check automation based on Xrecord are modeled and practically tested in ODCLASS.
The goal of ODCLASS together with other add-ons (ODEDIT, etc.), is to enable users to create object models, and to ensure the competitiveness of AutoCAD as a means of creating drawings/object models, and collecting descriptive data.
The solution is ODCLASS based on Xrecord. It accelerates, simplifies drawing of drawings/object models, allows you to define object characteristics, and improves the input of characteristic values. ODCLASS implements the best of AutoCAD® Map 3D® Object (Feature) classes concepts, with the addition of many mandatory features not available in Map 3D. ODCLASS provides the automation of checks and the achievement of 100% formal quality of the created drawings/object models, and the quality of the entered characteristics’ values.
Full details of the application are contained in the User Guide (ODCLASS_general_about, ODCLASS_description_en, ODCLASS_сreating_object_definition_files, ODCLASS_definition_file_structure_R-4 - htm or pdf, which is in the folder where the application is installed (%Programdata%\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\Alexander Sharov ODCLASS based on Xrecord.bundle\Contents).
In the same folder are ARX for Autodesk® AutoCAD® 2011-2016 Win 32 and 64, and Autodesk® AutoCAD® 2017-2020 Win 64.
odclass-odedit.com contains more examples, acts as Help.
Trial version allows you to load no more than 100 object types from the object definition file.
The number of objects in drawing/model is unlimited.
For many drawing/modeling themes, this limitation is not significant.
