Alright, what's the difference?
Dotsoft has released version one of a utility that will show the difference between two autocad files.
This was a recent topic on the augi forums, and while different methods for determining discrepancies were suggested, all agreed they would appreciate an application allowing this done automatically... looks like Terry has stepped up to the plate to provide it
"This low cost tool runs inside of AutoCAD 2000i or higher andallows users to compare two drawings. The differences betweenthe drawings are displayed in an empty drawing and a detailedreport is generated to document the differences.Details at http://www.dotsoft.com/dwgcompare.htm "
A recent update has been made to the mind-boggling useful utitilty that displays different icons in file open/windows explorer, depending on the autocad version of the .dwg: DWGicon.
DWGicon.dll is a Windows shell extension that enables you to identify the version of a drawing just by looking at its icon in explorer. Have a look at the screenshot [on the website] to see what it looks like in a FileOpen dialog ([shown there from within] AutoCAD, but you don't need to have CAD software installed on your machine for it to work.)
