Computervision has also revised its VersaCAD/386 software which runs on 80386 and 80486 MS-DOS personal computers, and its VersaCAD Design software – which runs on 80286 MS-DOS machines. The new Version 6.0 enables the linking of non-graphical information to graphical objects and features two-dimensional construction planes for creating three-dimensional models, a drawing import feature enabling users to import drawings from the VersaCAD two-dimensional module directly into the VersaCAD three-dimensional module, and direct file exchange between VersaCAD/386 or Versa/CAD Design software and VersaCAD/Macintosh Edition software. VersaCAD/386 6.0 is priced at $3,500 and VersaCAD Design 6.0 at $3,000 – both are expected to ship before the year end. And VersaCAD 3.0 for the Macintosh has also been announced. This includes, too, the facility for attaching non-graphic information to graphics, as well as a parallel line/arc/circle feature – enabling creation of parall-els by selecting existing line/arc/circles and specifying an offset, a drawing preview feature, and again, direct file exchange between Macintosh and MS-DOS-based VersaCAD packages, plus support for the Apple 8*24 Display Card. The entry-level two-dimensional VersaCAD Drafter 3.0 is also new – containing all the above features except for links between non-graphic and graphic data. VersaCAD/Macintosh Edition 3.0 is listed at $2,400 and VersaCAD Drafter 3.0 at $1,000 – both are shipping now. And, last but not least, Computervision has released an add-on package for its VersaCAD Macintosh products: VersaCAD Drawing Manager 1.0, which can be used with VersaCAD/Macintosh Edition or VersaCAD Drafter. Drawing Manager is $300 and is shipping now, as is VersaCAD Design (Version 5.4, Revision 7) for the Sun Sparcstation, at $3,500 – users wanting to use it under Unix can choose Sun, Hewlett-Packard or Apollo Domain operating systems.
