More goodies

Post by mjsmyth » Fri Sep 07, 2001 1:23 pm

For thos of you who do not look at the spanish forum, I posted a couple of links over there to some nice utilities.
www.ctrlp.com They ahve a utility for download called 5D PDF Creator and it does exactly what it says it does. It installs as a printer driver, so when you want to make PDF's of your drawings or any other document for that matter you simply select it as your printer and hit print.

Secondly was a http://wintopo.com Wintopo is a raster to vector convertor. Simply put it allows you to convert paper drawings to dxf. There is of course a free version which only handles bmp files but none the less it is excellent.

Thats all for now.

OK, bad news, it seems they have removed the PDF creator. Don't worry though, I will find another one Image

If you go to http://www.jawssystems.com/products/products_fs.html you can download an evaluation version of the software.

If you were lucky enough to have downloaded it originally from Ctrl-P and registered with Jaws Systems when they took it over from 5D the current version is a free download.
