If your drawings require a lot of repetitive dimension notes check out DimNotes from Jimmy Bergmark – JTB World. He’s an AutoCAD/ACA wiz from Sweden who I’ve “known” via the web for several years and met once in person. Being from opposite sides of the world we met about halfway, in Orlando, as both attended Autodesk University 2005. At that time Jimmy was a CAD Manager with a “proper job”* but is now forging his own path as a consultant, focusing on software design, development, customisation, integration.
Jimmy has several CAD related products, including JTB FlexReport – a Flexlm reporting tool, on his site along with several free-ware offers. Thanks to a reader, Cameron, for the heads-up on DimNotes and an idea for a future post on ADT/ACA tool palettes.
DimNotes makes it easy to add dimension notes to dimension objects in AutoCAD.
The free trial is fully functional except that you can only add notes two times per AutoCAD session. When purchased it can be used without restrictions.
* When self employed I referred to employees, those with a regular salary, as having proper jobs :-)
