I have a great question enough particuliere for you:
I have technical drawings of pieces of furniture AutoCad files. I would
like to create a website catalogues on line, I would like that the user
can choose the combinations which characterize its piece of furniture.
Then, the piece of furniture must be displayed to him according to what
the user asked.
For example:
The user chooses a type of table. He has then several choices to make:
- the type of legs of the table.
- the type of engraving on the surface of the table.
- the wood in which the table is built
- etc...
The image must then be generated according to characteristics' and be
displayed on the Web, in the electronic catalogue. Since there would be
possible thousands of combinations, the image must be generated by
Autocad (or a personalized software, in the form of plug-in for
example...) Say to me what you think of the feasibility of this website.
Is this possible to make this
kind of site with AutoCAD?
Excuse my bad english

Re: AutoCAD-Internet??

I do not think you would need AutoCAD and the Website to be working
together at the same time, to generate the samples. I would rather think
you would need AutoCAD for the first part of the job, and your Internet
editor program for the second one. First, you would use AutoCAD to prepare
all the images, showing all the different options for the small components;
creating image files that share identical points of view. Then you would
use your Internet editor program (for instance, Front Page) to create
arrays of images that react to links that are selected from pull-down
I hope this helps as an initial idea.
