Types of Custom Programming Services Provided
CAD fx has developed hundreds of unique AutoCAD
LISP routines, Visual Basic / C++ programs, custom databases, scripts and

CAD fx has provided:
Custom Ballooning & BOM
CAD fx can design a complete system
of balloon generation, bi-directional linking from your drawings to an external
bill of materials and back, and export critical information to your MRP/ERP
system. Why enter your information in more than once. With an integrated
solution, you avoid re-entering the same information for other systems.
Batch File Conversion
Examples include: conversion of AutoCAD
files to PDF format, export of 3D CAD drawings to 2D files, "watermarking"
drawing files and plot files, and much more.
Batch Export/Import of CAD Information
Let CAD fx create an application that
exports or imports virtually any information to and from your drawings.
This can be done with a database, spreadsheet, or text format.
Parametric Drawing Generation
If your organization needs automated
drawing, part, or detail generation, CAD fx can build a solution that will
save you untold hours and help prevent mistakes. Once the rules and parameters
are defined, a solution can be created.
Drawing compliance checking
If your organization needs to check sets
of drawings for compliance, and generate key reports, CAD fx can assist
Application settings configuration
Most programs are left wide open for
changes to their settings. CAD fx can allow you to set and lock down settings
that you want standard throughout your organization.
It is one thing to check for compliance.
It is another thing to enforce compliance when using CAD on the fly. CAD
fx can produce pro-active solutions that catch mistakes before they happen.
Examples of this would be: preventing certain blocks from being "exploded",
transparently placing certain objects on specific layers. And the list goes
