Drafting Assistant

The Drafting Assistant customizes AutoCAD to be a powerful CATV and Utilities mapping program. We have harnessed the power of AutoCAD with specific, yet flexible routines to draft base, strand, geography, and as-built. Design Assistant networks can be imported directly into the Drafting Assistant. All cable types, tap values, amplifiers, data blocks, etc are imported from the Design Assistant, greatly increasing drafting efficiency and eliminating errors. Everything within the Drafting Assistant is completely user customizable. That is, you can use all your own blocks, linetypes, layers, scale factors, grid layouts, etc. All customizations for each project are saved in settings files, so switching between projects is as easy as loading a different project file. Below is a quick breakout of a few of the features that will save you time and money.
