PreDCR™ works under the AutoCAD environment with an additional menu and toolbar. Using PreDCR™ commands, users can create all required layers in just one click. Once all the layers are created in the drawing, a user can use AutoCAD commands to draw a layout plan.
As per AutoDCRⓇ requirements, all building items such as the proposed plot and proposed work should be drawn on corresponding layers. Short commands are provided to activate any layer in PreDCR™. At any time, users can verify whether or not the drawn entities are properly closed, whether the proper name text has been written inside all closed poly, and so on. PreDCR™ will highlight all the failed entities, if any.
PreDCR™ can be used to create, modify and verify the existing or new architectural plan as per AutoDCRⓇ software requirements. Users are free to use AutoCAD commands and/or PreDCR™ commands to achieve the main purpose which is: drawing the architectural plan in DWG format as per AutoDCRⓇ software requirements.
The core features of PreDCR™ are:
- Standardization of submission drawings
Brings uniformity and standardization in submission drawing formats. This software will correct some minor drafting errors and also provide a list of failed entities with auto-zooming facility so that users can easily locate the failed entities in the drawing.
- Operational ease and convenience
Data redundancy is eliminated from the drawing. Only minimum required entities are to be drawn in the drawing, as most of the data will be auto-detected by the system from existing available data.
- Increased speed and efficiency
PreDCR™ facilitates the auto-insertion of the required size and number of many drawing entities such as parking, door windows. Test auto-insertion facility saves text typing efforts. Auto-dimensioning and auto-calculation facility saves calculation efforts. Using this software, a user can create all the required layers in one click.
Accuracy in area calculations is achieved with PreDCR™. Preparing calculation tables and showing dimensions in the drawing are not required.
