RealCADD 4.50 available BUT WITHOUT DWG

Post by Eric Pousse » Tue Sep 01, 2015 7:18 pm

RealCADD 4.50 is available here: http://adx-online.com/realcadd/realcaddus.htm

RealCADD 4.50 does not include the reading and writing of DWG files but keeps the reading and writing of DXF files.
The annual price of the license for the use of the library from "Open Design Alliance" to translate the DWG has become prohibitive compared to sales of RealCADD.
If you are a user of the Pro version of RealCADD, you must keep the previous version of RealCADD to continue to read and write DWG files.
If you use RealCADD on Windows or Linux, you must duplicate the file named "RCADtoDWG" from your old RealCADD folder in the new.
If you use RealCADD on Mac OS X, you need to right click (or ctrl + click) on your old version of RealCADD and choose "Show Package Contents" and then open the "Contents" folder and "MacOS" where you will find the "RCADtoDWG" file to be duplicated in the RealCADD 4.50 folder.

As usual, the update is free but I accept voluntary contributions via PayPal or Kagi.

Thank you.

That worked for me. It's just sitting in the same folder as the app, not in the "contents" folder (I don't know how to get it there). I was able to save as DWG OK.

4.50 must be getting close to a definitive version :D

I put it in the contents folder, but I got an error message that said:

I moved the RCADtoDWG file to the general app folder, but got the same message.

Mike,

It is because you have paid for the standard version not the pro version.

Cordialement.

Ah! Thank you.

I probably don't need the pro version, since it hasn't been an issue so far.
