POCKETCAD PRO, available from Six Sigma P/L , is reportedly the only fully functional CAD software for Windows-powered mobile devices. PocketCAD files can be uploaded to the desktop as a new DWG, DXF, or DGN file or simply merge file edits into an existing DWG, DXF, or DGN file on the desktop.
Add-In supports real-time As-Builting with Leica Geosystems DISTO pro series laser measurement devices.
With PocketCAD PRO 4.0 and the DISTO add-in, facility managers, space planners and architects can conduct real-time as-builting. All DISTOs measure using a visible red laser up to distances of 100m.
As well as measuring distances, all DISTOs can quickly calculate areas and volumes. By connecting the Pocket PC and the DISTO via a serial cable, distance measurements can be instantaneously captured in PocketCAD.
Users can save both time and money by eliminating the unnecessary step of making paper notations of measurements for subsequent conversion to electronic forms using design software.
PocketCAD PRO sells for $375 ex GST with either the MicroStation (DGN) or the AutoCAD (DXF, DWG) filter. A PocketCAD PRO version supporting both MicroStation and AutoCAD file formats is available for $475 ex GST.
