After a few weeks of casual programming, I have released a 2K CAD program in TI-BASIC. Forthose unfamiliar with the term, CAD or Computer Aided Design allows the creation of drawings, plans, and illustrations in vector format. Unlike bitmapped graphics, where file size increases exponentially as the image bounds increase, CAD files increase in size based on the file's complexity rather than its dimensions. Since all elements are stored as mathematical objects such as circles, lines, and arcs, the image can be infinitely zoomed and panned with no loss of quality or pixelation. In addition, elements can be added, modified, or removed without affecting any of the other objects in the file. You can see some screenshots below along with a download link.

KCAD v1.0

Thankee. Any comments, guys?
must try, but first get to a computer with a silverlink
Sounds good. Zip Code Post!! Smile
[nitpick]Isn't this more of a vector-image editor than straight-up CAD?[/nitpick]
I suppose you could say so, but it is kinda a cad app... Smile
Neutral Meh.
For Linux users, it is confusing being it sounds like a KDE app

lol, thats what i first thought. I saw Kcad, and thought, thank god! Kerm got linux!
K = Kerm. Smile
And I call it KCAD 'cause the premise is similar to that used by AutoCAD and similar progs. Smile
I know, just saying
how did you get it so you can use the draw menu inside the program? I didn't see anything radicallly different, and neither of the subroutine progs are in assembly.
Erm, what do you mean? I had the user type out LINE, CIRCLE, etc...
When I get to the screen with the center horizontal line and type in commands, I can press [2nd][DRAW] and use that menu.
Ah yes, that's just a function of using the Input command. That's completely standard. You never knew that?!?!?
Actually, no. I've never had a reason to use it, though. What is the syntax for it?
Input will normally alow you to go to the other menus. Heck, you can even go into the apps menu while "inputting." Since you asked the syntax would be...


Input "Display",Var

Not that you didn't know that already.... Laughing Smile
Yup, 'tis quite useful. Smile

Was this inspired by the recent discussion of the expr( command? Smile
No, I just used that because those are the AutoCAD commands.
