PowerDraw, made by using PowerCad, is
a 2D vector draw application. The application that demonstrates all
abilities of PowerCad, has no demo limitations. Powerdraw is developed
in Delphi IDE using only Powercad without single line of code. You can
download this drawing application free of charge and use it
with no limitation.Also you can see the open source codes of this
application in Powercad trial packages.
Download PowerDraw Setup
from our downloads page annd run the setup. The setup will install the
PowerDraw application to a folder you have selected. Sample
drawings,macros,blocks and plugins will be copied to your system as
well as the executable application.
You will see
a drawing area when you will first open the application. This area is a
page that is dimensioned by your values and you can make drawing in any
zoom scale on this page..
Besides this page, Powerdraw; is consisted of toolbars, command
menus and dialog windows. You can arrange and modify the toolbars and
menus using the Customize
Window , you can make any command visible and invisible. Also
customizing provides you the ways to make new toolbars and menus with
new commands or current ones.
To be able to make drawing on the page, a specific tool caommand should
be selected (active). For this; by select any command from the Draw
or Operations toolbars, you can draw any
figure or make any operation on the figures.You can format the drawen
figures using the commands on the Modify toolbar. Also the Context
Menu that is poped up when you right click on the page or on a
specific figure, provides you general or figure specific options. Many
commands on the toolbars or menus can be run also through the keyboard
are familiar to the concept block because of other CAD tools. A
block is a predefined figure group taht is avaliable to insert a
drawing. This is almost same as to insert a Clipart to a Word
document. What is more in PowerDraw is that you can create your own
blocks and can store them in organized block libraries. You can insert
a block to any location in your drawing using the related menu command
or opening the Blocks Mangeri. Also you can save a figure group
of yours as a block with the Make Block command.
Macros are an
important feature of PowerDraw. Especially in enginering drawings,
users may need drawing operations based on complex calculations. For
this purpose; you can extend your possibilities just with a few lines
of macro that is coded with the Pascal-like language and PowerDraw
object model. PowerDraw makro dili bir çok çizim ve hesap fonksiyonu
içermektedir. To use the Macro feature you should open the,
window . You can write the commands of your macro on the
word-editor provided on this window, you can run your macro or you can
save it to reuse later. More if you want you can assign any macro as a
menu or toolbar command using the Customize window. The sample
macro below, draws a rectangle and foour circles centered on the
corners of the rectnagle on the active layer.
// Sample Macro
i,k : integer;
For i := 0 to 1 do
For k := 0 to 1 do
architectural desing provides interfaces for external plugins. For this
purpose PowerDraw exports more than 200 functions to ne used by
external applications or dlls. You can use the plugins that is
developed for Powerdraw (so for the PowerCad) just copying then to
plugins folder. Then you should only assing the commands provided by
the plugin as menu or toolbar command using the customize window. Thus
the plugin functions can be used as native commands as they belong to
PowerDraw. PowerDraw standart setup installs to plugins named
AdjustBitmap and PowerPaint as sample. You can download the further
plugins developed by Tekhnelogos or third party vendors from our
actions or control methods to handle drawings.
