As an offshoot of this.... I have been using Acad 3 weeks now and wondering
if there are any good free sites that I can download useful things like
hatch patterns, linetypes etc. that dont come with base acad.
My office uses nothing but the base acad and noone knows how to do anything.
I keep coming along and saying " but cant you do this???"
and they say "no" then you guys just say "sure do it like this..."
Beats me. Rant over with.

I said Good!!! AutoCAD sites.
I tried your idea first and as you say there are 1000000000's of sites.
I think users have a better idea of decent sites.
I know with Microstation there is about 3 or 4 sites
that are any good for good useful free stuff. All the rest are people trying
to get you to buy their software.
Bosses tend not to agree that you should pay for extras after spending $9000
on CAD software.

Well I'm s-o-r-r-r-r-y you just can't seem to judge for yourself. What you
don't seem to realize is that tastes vary widely; what *I* think is a "good"
site, might be one you simply hate. Do what the rest of us do: visit a few
sites, bookmark the ones you like, ignore the ones you don't like.
"I said Good!!! AutoCAD sites."
I hear what you're saying Damon. It's hard to find a good Snuttar or
Cadgurus type site for Acad.
And we won't even mention the free Infosnap will we? Yeah there's
bubblecad but it's not anywhere near the same league. Still if you're
You could try www.cadalog.com. I've had some varied success getting
what I want out of there.
Also Allan Seidel, another person who had to move out of USTNland into
the A zone, has a few Acad apps worth looking at(mainly 3D). Find them

Keep looking and good luck!
