雖然知道jDraft這套輕巧又功能足夠的跨平台CAD軟體,已經有一段時間了,不過因為一直沒有畫CAD圖的相關需求,大多只需要瀏覽開啟即可,所以就一直擱置沒去使用它,剛好在oikos看到有網友提出,因為Mac上搭配Illustrator的CADTools在CS2以後,面對中文化套件會出現問題的狀況,所以就嘗試看看使用它來搭配。

目前jDraft在beta階段,開啟時會出現註冊過期的通知,雖然未註冊的狀態目前也還是可以使用,而如果要註冊的話,目前只要寫英文email到 jdraft@remove-this.sparetimelabs.com 通知他們說要註冊即可。


而軟體開啟時,工具面板預設會隱藏,所以要先到【Window】選項這邊來將它全部開啟。

接著把在illustrator作好需要做尺寸標示的線條圖,匯出成dxf格式,並到jDraft當中使用【Tools】選項匯入。

匯入之後,就可以使用工具面板當中的這四個工具做尺寸標示的動作。


以一般邊界標示為例,點選上一步驟工具面板中,左上角的邊界標示工具,只要靠近到要標示的邊界,就會分別以大圓和小圓,讓使用者指定邊界。


接著只要往要標示的方向,正確拉出去即可看到尺寸標示。


而jDraft本身僅會以真實的尺寸做標示,如果使用者是用縮小的比例尺的話,比如1cm=10m的狀況。


就要點選數字的部份,去單獨做另外的修正,所以最好的方式還是在illustrator直接就用1:1比例繪製,當然如果是大的物件圖,可能就沒辦法了,就要一一去修正尺寸數字。


另外由於使用jDraft import DXF檔案,會讓jDraft的預設列印範圍變成只有匯入物件的大小,所以在完成標示之後,在列印之前要先到【Settings】去修改Drawing Size。



接著就可以將列印範圍設定成適合自己需要的尺寸。



由於完成之後的檔案,是要返回匯入illustrator,所以在這邊要安裝能夠列印成postscript的印表機,在Mac上建議安裝CUPS-PDF,在Windows上,只要新增一個具有postscript功能的虛擬印表機,再列印成檔案之後,將.prn改成.ps即可。


在Mac上使用jDraft,按下列印之後會遇到的問題是面板有些異狀。


不過其實當中的分頁按鈕,還是功能正常,所以只要先按到另外一個分頁。


再返回第一個分頁按鈕,就可以看到正常的印表機選取畫面。


接著按下列印,就可以看到預覽列印的畫面。


列印完成後的pdf檔或postscript檔,回到illustrator開啟,就可以看到標示完成的圖,為了測試往前相容性,這邊用的是illustrator 9版。


jDraft也可以只列印部份選取好的物件,但是如果沒有作好列印尺寸的設定。


jDraft會將物件圖以填滿列印範圍的方式印成pdf,這樣會導致原圖尺寸改變,所以在使用此功能時,需注意到這個部份。


其實jDraft本身就可以應付一定程度的CAD繪圖需求,只是平面人員如果比較少使用到CAD繪圖軟體,多少還是會有所不熟悉,而如果能夠和原來使用的軟體搭配,至少在使用效率上可以比較快完成臨時要使用的狀況,但是如果有興趣更熟悉jDraft的話,建議可以到他們網站上去看相關的手冊來了解,而介紹到這邊,就將平常遇到CAD檔案,從開啟瀏覽到再繪製的相關解決方案都告訴大家了,希望大家再遇到相關情況時,可以減少一些尋找資訊解決問題的時間。

 

 


 

 

Although it is known jDraft this lightweight and functional enough cross-platform CAD software, has been for some time, but has not been painted since the CAD map-related needs, most only need to visit the open can, so we have been on hold did not go to use it, just User submitted in the oikos see,because on the Mac with Illustrator's CADTools in CS2, facing the problems of cultural package will be the situation, so we try to take a look at to use it to match. 

 
Present jDraft in beta stage, when open registration expiration notice will appear, although unregistered state is also still available, but if you want to register the case, is currently writing in English as long as the email to the jdraft @ informed them that To register can be. 

 
The software is turned on, the tool panel will be hidden by default, so first to Window】 【option here to open it all. 

 
Then the size needs to be done in illustrator ready marked line diagrams, export into dxf format, and go to Tools】 【jDraft which option to use import. 

 
After import, you can use the tool palette tool for them to do these four dimensions labeled action. 

 
The general boundary marking, for example, click on a step tool palette in the upper left corner of the boundary marking tool, as long as close to the border to be marked, they were to great circle and the small round, allowing users to specify the border. 

 
Then as long as the direction to be marked, pull out the correct size of label you can see. 

 
The jDraft by itself will be to indicate the true size, if the user is then reduced scale, such as 1cm = 10m situation. 

 
Click the part numbers should go alone to do another amendment, so the best way to use directly or in the illustrator drawn to scale 1:1, of course, if it is a large object diagram may be no other way, it is necessary 11 to amend the size of figures. 

 
In addition, as the use of jDraft import DXF files, the default print range will make jDraft only have to import the size of the object, so after the completion of marking, in print before the first to 【Settings】 to modify the Drawing Size. 

 

And then they can be set to print the scope of the size that suits your needs. 
 

 
Because after the completion of the file, is to return to import illustrator, so here you want to install can be printed into a postscript printer, the Mac on a proposal to install CUPS-PDF, in Windows, just add a postscript function the virtual printer, and then print a file will be followed. prn change. ps can be. 

 
In the Mac using jDraft, press the print issue is encountered after the panel that some unusual form. 

 
But in fact, among the paging buttons, or functioning properly, so as long as the press to another page. 

 
Go back to the first page button, you can see the normal printer selection screen. 

 
Then press the print, you can see the print preview screen. 

 
Print the completed pdf file or postscript file, back to illustrator to open, you can see marked the completion of the plan, in order to test forward compatibility, here are using a version of illustrator 9. 

 
jDraft can also be printed only good part of the selected objects, but if not prepared to print size settings. 

 
jDraft will be the object map to fill the range of ways to print printed pdf, it will result in Original size change, so use this feature, take note of this part. 

 
In fact, jDraft itself can cope with the demand a certain degree of CAD drawings, but if fewer persons use the plane to the CAD drawing software, and how many will still be unfamiliar with, but if the software can be used with the original, at least in the use of efficiency can be compared quick completion of the temporary use of the situation, but if you are interested in more familiar jDraft, I suggest can go to their website to see relevant manuals to understand, but introduced to the side, it will normally encounter CAD files, from the Open a browser to re-draw Other solutions are to tell you, I hope you suffer the relevant circumstances, we can reduce some of the time looking for information to solve the problem.
