Autocad 14

Post by Mike Pickles » 14 Oct 2006, 18:50

I have an old copy of Autocad 14, which I used a fair bit way back, when designing and extension to the house.

I’ve downloaded various IOM drawings but can’t get them to load in Autocad.

Any suggestions?

Hi
There are some newer versions around these days, 14 must be from the previous millenium.

If you can't open them they are made on later versions than what you have.

I use AutoCAD for my work, and if you send me a file that's a DWG, I can save it "down" to Release 14 for you, provided that it was not written in AutoCAD 2007! We have AutoCAD 2006, purchased last year, and have already discovered that we can't open files written by the "2007" version.

There are no free AutoCad on the net, but there are "free" versions around for download using such programs as BearSheare.
Just bear in mind that this is no leagal versions

has anyone used Freeship @ http://www.freeship.org/ to design a IOM

There seems to be quite a lot of designs in the database but no obvious IOM

Hi
I have been using Prolines to design mine IOM's. I have downloded a copy of Freeship and it seems to be a great program.
I will test it, but what I have seen so far I think I will use this in the future.
