NEW DESIGNCAD 2D VERSION 6.0 COMPLETELY REWRITTEN

     LAS VEGAS, Nov. 16 ~PRNewswire~ -- American Small Business Computers Inc. (ASBC) ships new DesignCAD 2D version 6.0 the first day of Fall COMDEX '92, Nov. 16.  The complete, easy-to-use system, with unlimited free technical support and a customer base of hundreds of thousands worldwide, combine to create a system that is hard to beat.  PC Magazine awarded their Editors' Choice to DesignCAD version 5.0 (12~17~91) declaring DesignCAD's features rival those of high-priced, high-end systems.  Version 6.0 is better with 54 new commands, 79 new options, and a host of other changes, including more colors, layers, curve types, dimensioning features, improved grouping and programming functions, and more.

Commands     through the reference manual.  Version 6.0 is
                   three to five times faster than the previous
                   version.  Dozens of new commands, like Bezier
                   curves, add to DesignCAD's flexibility and
                   ease-of-use (see attached sheet for detailed
                   listing).  The new DOS Shell Command allows
                   users to temporarily exit DesignCAD, perform
                   DOS functions and return, saving valuable
                   time.
Dimensioning:      DesignCAD's extensive dimensioning
  Enhancements     capabilities are improved even further.   New
  Progressive      ways to dimension diameter, arc, chamfer, and
  Calculations     radius, as well as determining horizontal and
  Dimension        vertical dimensions are included.  Progressive
  Previewing       measurement commands can be used to
  Dimension        automatically dimension parts of an area as
  Options          well as the entire object.  One new, powerful
                   feature allows dynamically previewing
                   dimensions before committing them to a
                   drawing.  Balloon and Pullout commands allow
                   users to highlight individual items within a
                   drawing automatically placing a leader, arrows
                   and circled or uncircled text.  A host of 36
                   new dimension options control precision,
                   format, location, orientation, type, color,
                   layer, scale, gap size, offset, balloon size,
                   prefixes, suffixes, and other dimension
                   parameters.
Group Features:    New Grouping features treat user-selected

  Saved Groups     individual parts of a Group.  Multiple Group
                   capability allows users to define more than
                   one Group within the same drawing and switch
                   between these Groups.  Groups can be saved
                   with the drawing, eliminating the need to
                   redefine Groups when a drawing is retrieved.
Miscellaneous:     Drawings can be saved as binary files as well

                   new Trim Double command cleans up
                   intersections:  even at non-90x angles.  The
                   flexible BasicCAD programming language is
                   enhanced, running faster and with new
                   executable statements, expanding users'
                   capabilities.
