Now, you are given the ability to fill templates, custom fields and sheet sets with data from drawings which automatically update. ZWSOFT http://www.zwsoft.com/ has incorporated ‘field text’ into their latest version of ZWCAD. When using field data as part of a sheet set in drawing, you will be in control of nearly all aspects of how users make and manage drawings in the life cycle of a project. Commands are accessible by entering Field at the command prompt or by choosing Insert Field found at the Insert menu.
The ZWCAD field command can be used in extracting and presenting data from drawing files as the text fields. The fields can be embedded in tables, mtext, attribute definitions and others. For instance, when using text in the drawing over again, like the current date, the name and address of your company and the initials of the drafter, you will be able to save time while improving accuracy by having the data placed as fields with the Field command. You need not to be memorizing or remembering the data since when the values are changed or updated, ZWCAD will automatically change the text in an instant.
At any phase of the drawing, you can change the drawing properties including the text style and text height through the drawing properties creating the custom properties. If in case you can’t find the custom field description which comes with ZWCAD, you will be able to add custom field through the Custom Tab of Drawing Properties dialog box. Such custom fields can be used then in other parts of the drawing through fields.
In the ZWCAD drawings, there is gray colored background in field text which is a visual sign that the text is actually a field and the gray background is not printable. After the drawing has been customized with fields, you will be able to save it as DWR template drawing then make it available for other drawings based on the template.
So how do you change text to fields? First, you should double click the text in order for you to edit it and from the formatting toolbar, choose the Insert Field button. This will bring up the Field dialog box from where you can choose the options and categories to add fields into the text.
In the same way, you can CAD software use AttDef command in creating an attribute definition that is made of fields. This can be accomplished via the Default Text item of the Attribute Definition CAD free download dialog box. Even if the attribute is consisting of a field, you can override still the automatic value of the field. Such example of this is the date of the title box of the drawing. You can use the field which reports the current date. However, you might decide freezing it to fixed date whenever needed. The new features added into the latest version of ZWCAD means you can save more time that you can otherwise use on other things that may be needed to produce an effective and impressive drawing.
