There are many programs designed to be used with AutoCAD® and to provide general utilities and drawing aids. I recently tried one of those programs, ToolPac Version 3.0.
ToolPac provides several very useful utilities for working with AutoCAD. I needed it to convert AutoCAD polylines to true NURBS, and the program was able to do that - and to reverse the process - without a hitch.
ToolPac has a number of other helpful utilities for handling blocks and layers, and there are also some useful drawing aids.
This a valuable addition to the AutoCAD tool kit. It was also reviewed in the Janaury, 1998, issue of Cadence . (ToolPac 3.0 from Dotsoft, $195, Carlson Software, 102 West Second Street, Suite 200, Maysville, KY 41056; 606-564-5028)
