DANCAD3D is an excellent and versatile drawing program that lets you do very complex things like stereoscopic 3D wire-frame drawing, or very simple things like designing letterheads. Draw in two and three dimensions. Separate groups of lines into "elements" that can be saved, loaded, magnified, rotated, flipped, offset (moved), and used over and over again. Keep them as a file on a disk (give them names like cube, sphere, and cylinder). DANCAD3D prints surprisingly sharp, crisp lines on Epson/IBM-compatible dot-matrix printers. Use it for many different applications, including the following: ~ Mechanical drawings and technical illustrations ~ Business forms of many kinds ~ Page layouts which combine text and drawings ~ Automatic computer slide shows ~ Engineering simulation to verify the fit of three-dimensional shapes DANCAD3D also supports many plotters, PostScript laser printers, and image setters such as the Linotronic 300. It works with a mouse, 3-D track ball, or cursor keys. DANCAD3D includes the DANMOVIE program, a full demonstration, and its documentation. DANMOVIE is a very useful engineering tool. With it, you can program DANCAD3D to make an animated close-up of parts in a layout drawing. Use this close-up to confirm the fit of moving parts. Produce an animated perspective view of the entire assembly with all of the parts in motion.
[ D A N M O V I E D O C U M E N T A T I O N ] DANMOVIE.COM v1.10 (512k to 640k) For Use With DANCAD3D.COM v1.33-512k or v1.30-640k. Daniel H. Hudgins, 466 Diamond St., San Francisco, CA 94114. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: * Color Graphics Adapter Video Board (CGA) 100% compatible. Note: DANMOVIE v2.0 supports EGA, MGC and Hercules (tm) video boards, it comes with the manual when you order it. * 512k or more memory. * 100% compatible PC with a disk drive. * DANCAD3D.COM, v2.0 with 14 disks and 300+ page manual. DANMOVIE works with DANCAD 3D to animate screens saved as pixel bit maps. DANCAD 3D can print out or plot the drawings at very high resolution (greater than 4 million pixels) if you like the way the animation looks using DANMOVIE. DANMOVIE is a useful engineering tool since you can program DANCAD 3D to make an animated close-up of parts in a layout drawing. In that way you can confirm the fit of moving parts. You can also program DANCAD 3D to produce a animated perspective view of the whole assembly with all its parts in motion! To run DANMOVIE you need to have a set of pixel frame files. You can make these with DANCAD 3D. Read the tutorial in the file MANUAL.DOC that comes with DANCAD 3D. The set of frame files must all have the same PATH\FILENAME. The filename extensions must be numbered consecutively starting with .1 (e.g.: c:\GQ\MY_FRAME.1, c:\GQ\MY_FRAME.2, c:\GQ\MY_FRAME.3, c:\GQ\MY_FRAME.4, ... c:\GQ\MY_FRAME.24). DANMOVIE v1.0 will read up to 24 frames into memory. There are two ways to load the pixel frame files. One, just enter X:\DANMOVIE at the DOS prompt (where X:\ is the path to DANMOVIE.COM). And the enter the path\filename (don't enter the .EXT (e.g.: B:FRAME not B:FRAME.1)) when prompted for it. Two, enter X:\DANMOVIE X:\FRAMES (where X:\FRAMES is the path\filename for the set of pixel frame files) at the DOS prompt. After the frames are loaded you can run them forward (press [F]), reverse (press [R]), back n' forth (press [B]), change the speed (press [D] or [S]), and pause the action at any point (press [P]). There is a pop-up help screen you can get by pressing [H] (for help or ^[^] or [Return]). To exit to DOS press ^C or ^Q (^C means press the [Ctrl] key at the same time you press the [C] key). Version 1.10 of DANMOVIE has less flicker when run fast. Version 2.x supports 34 CGA color frames, and Hercules (tm) Hercules or EGA (tm) IBM high resolution frames. DANCAD3D and DANCAD87 require a harddisk to run properly. If you find this program useful (or just fun) write me and say so. If you can think of any changes you would like to see in a up-date of any of my programs send me a letter.
