ZWCAD Applications – Auto_C.A.
Auto_C.A. is a program for the drawing of reinforced concrete structures with ZWCAD 2015 Pro, GstarCAD 2015®, AutoCAD® and AutoCAD LT® built with the technical contribution of the construction protagonists. The philosophy of the program is to keep unchanged anything compared to the designers wee-established habits: Auto_C.A. does not propose a rigid scheme, but it is presented as a series of simple and powerful tools to drawing quality projects, reducing the production time enormously.
Auto_C.A. uses ZWCAD objects and commands in a totally dynamic way (ex. It is more than enough to edit a bar text as you normally do with ZWCAD and everything changes in real time!) Who is able to use ZWCAD knows already how to use Auto_C.A. The masks of the program have been built with the self-training principle: they themselves can intuitively serve as guide and manual.
Auto_C.A. uses only ZWCAD primitive objects (polylines and texts) making them “smart”. On Auto_C.A. objects is possible to apply all the ZWCAD commands: who is already able to use ZWCAD knows already how to use Auto_C.A.
Auto_C.A. automatically manages all the problems related to the plotting scale (text, dimensions, fills) and for what concerns the modification in real time, it provides to create details at various scales without worrying about anything!
All windows are built with explanatory and real previews so that we can intuitively use the program itself as a guide and training manual. This is possible, favoring simple functions with the conviction of the fact that too complex functions are usually not used so… it is faster and easer to do it manually.
