Autodsys Releases AutoLINE 2009 Linetype Manager

Portland, Oregon — Autodsys, Inc. (  today released AutoLINE 2009 Linetype Manager which adds powerful new features and over 100 linetypes to AutoCAD software from Autodesk and Autodsys AcceliCAD.  AutoLINE takes advantage of ARX in AutoCAD and Custom Entity Display in AcceliCAD to display linetypes that would not otherwise be possible.

AutoLINE provides advanced linetype functionality including management of linetypes with an interface for modifying them as well as the ability to draw parallel lines with variable width, put a block or negative dash first in the linetype definition, and to control the width of a line or what text is placed in the line on an entity-by-entity basis. AutoLINE also comes with 100 linetypes that may be customized to meet end-user requirements. Entities with AutoLINE linetypes assigned to them can be edited just like any other entity and options are available to allow users who don’t have AutoLINE to view the linetypes on their systems.

“AutoLINE has long been considered the best tool for managing linetypes in AutoCAD”, said Ronald Prepchuk, President of Autodsys. “This new version will have users reconsidering what is possible with linetypes.”  Existing users will find that AutoLINE 2009 has significantly smaller file sizes when compared to previous versions of AutoLINE.  Due to the use of new technologies it is also much faster in drawing custom linetypes and also much easier to edit linetypes using regular editing commands such as TRIM and BREAK.
