AutoProject for AutoCAD - An automatic 2D projection generation plug-in for AutoCAD

AutoProject for AutoCAD is an automatic 2D projection generation plug-in for AutoCAD. This plug-in gives AutoCAD the ability to automatically create precise 2D projections views of 3D objects.

AutoCAD users often find themselves in a position wherein they have to create 2D views of their 3D models. Newer versions of AutoCAD have commands to create projection views, but these commands are limited to are 3D solids and surfaces only. There are no commands to project normal 3D curves such as line, polylines, arcs, circles, splines and other objects like meshes, faces, points, etc. AutoProject for AutoCAD removes this limitation and gives AutoCAD the ability to project almost any object onto a 2D plane.

AutoProject for AutoCAD is capable of projecting 3D objects to the six standard orthographic views (top, bottom, front, back, right and left) as well as the 8 standard isometric views, one for each octant.

IMPORTANT! Purchasing a Subscription is highly recommended since it the most cost effective way of keeping your software up to date. Moreover, Subscription entitles you to get a second free perpetual license for your laptop, among many other benefits. For details please read the SYCODE License and Subscription Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).

Our licenses are single computer licenses and are locked to each computer they are installed on. Basically, the license key is specific to the computer's Host ID (the MAC address of the computer), and will not work on another computer. The installer picks up the physical MAC address of the network card connected to the computer which is basically “Ethernet adapter Network Connect Adapter”. So unless you change your network card, the key will always work even if you reinstall your operating system. If your internal network is periodically assigning a different Host ID to your computer, then please find a solution for this with your IT department.

Note: Downloading this software indicates your acceptance to the SYCODE Software License Agreement. The price mentioned above is for a single user license. For your bulk-licensing needs please contact us.
