Enhances Revolutionary BIM pricing tool for AutoCAD with
Automatically Created Elevation Views
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
JANUARY 20, 2005:
Signal Hill, Calif. – 1ST Pricing, a Southern California-based
technology company, has released a major upgrade to their FREE
downloadable plug-in for AutoCAD products that creates an
"elevation view" from the "plan view" in an
instant with just a few clicks of the mouse. The elevation view
will show the 1ST Pricing windows and doors with the glass and
grid inserts correctly scaled in true perspective. The plug-in
works in most Autodesk® products including AutoCAD®, AutoCAD
Architectural Desktop™ and Autodesk Map 3D®.
capability of an instantly created elevation view to our AutoCAD
Window and Door Toolkit is an important step in helping AutoCAD
users be more productive," says Douglas Lopez, President
and Founder of 1ST Pricing, Inc. "Creating an elevation
view is a time consuming, labor intensive effort and typically
results in many errors. An architect or designer can save many
hours of frustration, increase the detail, and improve the
accuracy of the elevation view with our toolkit."
plug-in uses 1ST Pricing’s revolutionary Building Information
Model (BIM) pricing capabilities. 1ST Pricing’s plug-in
captures building information details and provides multiple,
line-item quotes in real time. These comparative quotes are
based on the project zip code and provides
"delivered-to-the-jobsite pricing." The plug-in
creates an electronic bill of materials and material schedule
saving both time and money while reducing quote errors. The
detailed material list also
contains a unique reference number for online purchase by the
contractor or homeowner.
capability greatly enhances our plug-in," says Lopez.
"The 1ST Pricing technology generates a true ground level
view for the AutoCAD user including scaling objects properly if
the wall lines are angled in the plan view."
1ST Pricing has
already completed toolkits for TurboCad, and AutoCAD. They have
begun developing plug-ins for other major CAD applications and
expect to release them later this year. The plug-in is available
now at www.1STPricing.com.
Both the plug-in and the pricing service are free. 1ST Pricing
is an Autodesk® Authorized Developer.
