We have released a beta of SpecifiCAD, an AutoCAD/ADT plug-in that
works in the background that brings up thumbnails from the McGraw-Hill
Construction (MHC) Network for Products (Sweet's) website of related
building products to what the user is manipulating in the background.
If the user wants additional information on a particular product,
clicking on the thumbnail brings opens a browser page to the MHC web
page for that product, and the user can navigate to specifications and
CAD details when present.
We would appreciate any feedback as to how to make this workflow more
useful to designers.
