Make use of AutoCAD together with an external database. Block attribute values can automatically be updated back and forth to one or many external databases. If you make changes to the attribute values they can be synchronized back to the external database or the other way around.
There are three sync methods available and can be set individually for each attribute to synchronize.
Sync in both directions.
Sync only from the drawing to the database.
Sync only from the database to the drawing.
Some information might be useful to sync in both directions while other information like dimensions needs AutoCAD to be the owner. Other information like price might best be owned by the database.
Information in the title block as well as revisions is something that can be synchronized.
More flexibility and functionality than the standard AutoCAD commands EATTEXT, DATAEXTRACTION, ATTIN and ATTOUT.
ACAD_db will improve your work process and experience and will improve quality of your data and remove redundancy and conflicts of data and information.
Support for blocks in both model space and paper space and in multiple layouts. Fields of all types like Sheet Set Manager properties are supported but then sync only from drawing to the database.
Dynamic blocks are supported.
A Setup Window for the database table JTBW_AttSync is available to ease the task to create the connection between the database and the drawing.
