Google-Like Search, with Batch Replacement, Arrives for AutoCAD and MicroStation

By on

Previously released for MicroStation, CadExplorer™ now supports AutoCAD drawing files too, which allows users to find virtually any type of DWG file object across multiple files.

Clearwater, Florida, USA — Axiom, the world’s most experienced third-party developer of products that make MicroStation easier, announces the release of CadExplorer version 4.0. Previously released for MicroStation, CadExplorer now supports AutoCAD DWG files. With the new CadExplorer, users can now find virtually any DGN or DWG file objects (including text, cell or block names, circles, lines, shapes and many others) across multiple files based on a wide range of search criteria, including text strings, cell or block names, level or layer, color, weight, style and many more. It can also make certain batch modifications of DWG objects, a capability which CadExplorer’s MicroStation users have been enjoying for nearly a year now.

Working across MicroStation and AutoCAD can't be this easy! CadExplorer puts all your CAD data in one place and makes it easy to quickly find any DGN or DWG file objects in thousands of CAD files.

Per Axiom, CadExplorer is new technology that lets users ignore the boundaries between CAD files (both MicroStation and AutoCAD) and interactively find, display, analyze, explore, report on, investigate and edit CAD file data in ways never before possible. In addition, Axiom reports that there is no easier way to select, preview and modify text across multiple MicroStation and/or AutoCAD files in batch than with CadExplorer. With CadExplorer, users can modify found text strings in any imaginable way — even using wildcard and regular expression substitution — and can preview proposed text changes before committing them to all their selected CAD files.
CadExplorer shows users virtually all the data contained in one, ten, hundreds or even thousands of design and/or drawing files in an easy-to-use and intuitive grid. Need to see all the cells or blocks that are being used in any project on the network and get a count of each one? A few mouse-clicks is all it takes.

With CadExplorer, you can create a list of materials from all the elements or objects placed in a project and then export this to an Excel spreadsheet. Now you have a ready-made bill of materials.
