Quickcad question

My construction company has the need to print autocad files that come in
from consultants that we work with. We do not need to do any real
drawings. Would Quickcad print autocad files? If so is there a limit on
size? We do not get into 3-d type drawings.

Thanks for your help

Hi Harvey,

I will have to beg to differ.

Volo View Express is really not a good recommendation....it is far too
quirky and has a bucket load of problems....the posts to the Newsgroup
support my opinion.

I installed it on several of the workstations at the office and it proved to
be a complete nightmare so it was uninstalled.

I know for a fact that any vertical text, including dimension text, created
in LT97 drawings does not display. The user also requires Internet Explorer
for the program to function.

QuickCAD would be a much more reliable viewing option.

Ric Norris.

Robert,

VoloView Express may or may not work for you as it has some printing
limitations. QuickCad should do what you are asking depending on which
version you are considering purchasing and which versions of AutoCAD
drawings you need to print.

Hi Harvey,

Whip is good....however it will only view .DWF files...so all drawings need
to be exported as such.

This is the original question:

"My construction company has the need to print autocad files that come in
from consultants that we work with. We do not need to do any real
drawings. Would Quickcad print autocad files? If so is there a limit on
size? We do not get into 3-d type drawings."

The point being.....if Robert can be assured all the files he receives are
in .DWF format, he should have no problems then. Also, AutoCAD releases
prior to R14/LT97 are unable to export files as .DWF's.

Agreed, Ric. That's innate with Whip!

My point was that he can do all this business without spending any money at all.
Isn't that what Whip! is all about? As long as he has no need to edit, then why
buy and learn a CAD package? Kyew Eee Dee.

Don't ya LOVE pedantic, condescending, holier-than-thou, self-righteous snobs?
Get's the adrenalin pumping.
