At Document & Draft we produce software solutions for Drawing Office problems. Our reVision application catalogues AutoCAD DWG files into a searchable database so that only the current revision is accessible and superseded drawings cannot be accidentally accessed and used or issued.
Plenty of Drawing Offices use Windows Explorer to access drawing files which opens the possibility of multiple copies of the same drawing existing on the system. ReVision interrogates each drawing file and extracts information from the Drawing Titleblock like drawing title, job number, draughtsman, client, etc. and stores it in a searchable database that allows drawing to be sorted on these fields.
