Win32 and 64, English

Massimo Cicognani
Toolkit with commands that convert polylines to sheetmetal or membranes, along with simple parametric shapes generator.

General Usage Instructions

The ribbon bar would show all of the commands available, but we suggest using them through the palette shown by COMSDRAWIT command.

The palette will allow for greater control on the parametric shapes and will record previously used parameters, for a quicker selection and reuse.

See the integrated help for detailed information on each panel option and usage.

Additional Information

Known Issues

Icons better readable with light theme.

Autodesk® AutoCAD® 2018 currently contains an issue that prevent this plugin to load hatch information correctly. At the time this plugin has been published, no hotfix was available yet. However, this plugin version will load a list of hatch names from the last-used list. This should allow for 'normal' operations, but we do not guarantee that all the plugin functions will be uninterrupted or error free.
We will update this plugin as soon as a working Autodesk® AutoCAD 2018® version will be released.
