This is a shot in the dark, but does anyone have any AutoCad drawings of either a suburban or K5?
What file extension would that be. The program I run has vector images, and I have several options for exports on my program. I'm pretty sure one would world for AutoCAD.
Lets see what you got, my CAD program reads .dxf, .tcw, .dwg
here is a k5;
and heres my trailer;
*.dxf or *.dwg would be perfect for autocad. What other formats can you export to? If you had something that would go into a solid modeling program like SolidWorks or SolidEdge I'd be interested in getting a copy of the file. For some reason my mind is blank right now trying to remember the conversion formats that work the best though
SolidWorks can read in a .dwg or .dxf file. The only down side is that it will probably be wire frame. I'm not sure how you could render it? If anyone has a k5 file I would be interested too...any file format works for me.
Here's what I can do...
I guess the biggest thing to note is that my program is 2D.
It is specifically made for the sign industry, but it does have similarities to ACAD. At least that's what I've been told by people familiar with ACAD. If you're familiar with Adobe Illustrator, it is a lot like that with just a few more bells & whistles.
I've attached jpeg's of what I have and how I use to try out different paint schemes and what not.
I can export in the following formats:
Adobe Illustrator (.AI)
Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)
Clear Text CGM (.CTM)
Computer Graphics Metafile (.CGM)
Digital Research Graphic (.GEM)
Encapsulated PostScript (.EPS)
FlexiSign 5.x (.FS)
Frame Vector (.FMV)
Gerber Art Definition (.GAD)
IGES Drawing (.IGS)
JPEG Bitmap (.JPG)
OS/2 PM Metafile (.MET)
PNG Raster (.PNG)
Targa Bitmap (.TGA)
Tiff Bitmap (.TIF)
Windows Bitmap (.BMP)
