Reasonably priced version of QScad?


  • #2

    Does anyone know if there is a good reasonably priced program that allows you to accurately measure from dwg files?

    To expand on what I am looking for is a program to accurately measure areas and lengths from dwg and pdf versions of floor plans and elevations. For example if I receive a floor plan in pdf or dwg files I am looking to calibrate a scale based on the linear dimensions stated on the drawing, which would then allow me to get accurate area quantities by clicking on relevant points.

    I have been in contact with Autodesk via email and they are advising me that Autodesk Recap would be suitable. I have downloaded the free trial version but am having difficulty converting pdf and dwg files in rcp files in order to use them in Recap.

    Any advice? Has anyone opinions or experience using Recap?

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
