Gstarsoft Highlights New Dynamic Block Editor in GstarCAD 2012

The dynamic block in the upcoming GstarCAD 2012 adds flexibility and intelligence to symbols.

Beijing, China: November 16, 2011-- GstarCAD, a leading provider of 2D/3D software to the design industry today began revealing details of its upcoming GstarCAD 2012 release of computer-aided design software. The update will provide power users with greater efficiency through the addition of a number of new design-oriented functions. First to be revealed is the powerful dynamic block functionality that adds flexibility and intelligence to symbols.

The new block editor environment in GstarCAD 2012 lets users design and edit regular blocks (symbols) and to program dynamic blocks that interact with drawings in powerful new ways. The block editor lets users attach parameters, visibility states, and actions to blocks. Once dynamic blocks are added to drawings, users can interactively change the shape, size, and position of the blocks; there is no longer any need to redefine or reinsert multiple static blocks in the drawings.

Users enter the block editor with the new Bedit command. There, they will find dozens of commands, system variables, parameters, parameter sets, and actions with which they can customize the actions of blocks. The large number of parameters and actions make it easy for blocks to be manipulated by users, thereby significantly improving the efficiency and flexibility of designs and drawings.

Parts of dynamic blocks can be made to move, stretch, rotate, lookup, and scale. After dynamic blocks are inserted into the drawings, users can change their shapes and sizes easily through simple clicking and dragging of blocks unlike general block references.

Dynamic blocks created in GstarCAD 2012 are highly compatible with those created in AutoCAD. DWG files containing dynamic blocks can be opened and edited seamlessly with either GstarCAD 2012 or AutoCAD, no loss of parameters, visibility modes, or actions. By adding dynamic blocks to GstarCAD, Gstarsoft enhances its compatibility with AutoCAD even further.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
