Online PR News – 24-April-2012 – Lakeland, TN – SoftDraft is pleased to announce a free 30 day trial of its most popular AutoCAD app software. With Joist2K, drafting professionals can automate many of the basic functions that are involved in adding steel bar joist and girders in their drawing and details. By saving time, drafters can complete jobs more efficiently and effectively than using AutoCAD alone.
When AutoCAD was first introduced, it promised to reduce the amount of time that architectural, structural, piping, mechanical, HVAC and contracting professionals would spend drafting. However, repetitive tasks took far too long from the program to be an effective time saver. Drafting professionals were spending extensive time looking up the specifications in a Joist Manufacturer’s catalog and then customizing their drawing based on the catalog’s specifications. This was a waste of time and made the drafting process even longer and more time consuming – a far cry from what AutoCAD initially promised.
With AutoCAD cad software, like Joist2K, drafting professionals can use time saving shortcuts to make AutoCAD more effective and efficient. Joist2K focuses on providing an automated way to create a variety of Joist options quickly and easily. During the free 30 day trial, potential buyers can try out multiple features of the Joist2K program including adding steel bar joists to wall sections in less than 30 seconds, placing steel bar joist and girders by selecting two points in your drawing, create steel bar joist in one of three views, draw full length bar joists, create top and bottom chord extensions and add 3D bar joist and girders.
Trial users can also control end extensions, rotation, layer, color and linetype of all bar joists. Joist2K features built in intelligence which makes it simple to add each bar joist for easy identification after placing it in the drawing. With Joist2K, the drafting process with AutoCAD can be faster and more efficient than drafting by hand.
Joist2K is compatible with the full AutoCAD version and not AutoCAD LT. When users register for their free trial at http://www.Joist2K.com they will receive a download link via email. Alternatively, they can purchase the full version of the program now and save 20% on the purchase price.
