Here's What our Customer's Are Saying About Us.
|Cadalyst Reader's Favorite for 2003! |
Why we have the happiest customers.
The best kind of award one could get is the one where your peers vote for you. CADzation is please to announce that our AcroPlot software was voted to the Cadalyst Readers' Favorites for the first half of 2003. And a special thank you to all of our users who voted for us. It makes all of the long hours and hard work worth it to know that we rank that high on your list!
|"Congratulations on making such a powerful piece of software that takes up the considerable slack left by Acrobat Professional 7.0. Previously, large scale gradient fills in an Autocad drawing would, at best, take 20-30 minutes to plot to PDF, and at worst simply crash Acrobat (usually the latter). AcroPlot handles these files quickly and easily.|
I will definitely be recommending your software to my colleagues."
DALE AND ASSOCIATES ARCHITECTS P.A.
|"I purchased and used the product, it was incredibly user friendly. It has already paid for itself in saved plotting and shipping costs. Good job."|
|"I have been using AcroPlot Pro for a year now and find it absolutely brilliant, I often convert 100+ acad drawings into a single PDF and with your software you just start it and forget it."|
"I downloaded the program about an hour and a half ago, used it to Batch Plot about 200 drawings into only 2 pdf files! It was great! As soon as my boss gets back from vacation, we'll be buying it. This will save me SO MUCH TIME!
Veronica L. Smith
Project Services Coordinator
TEST Automation & Controls
|"Hi. You said part of the deal with the evaluation version was to email you back with my opinion of your software. Well, I love it, I love it, I love it. I used it to convert a giant set of plot files to pdfs for a project. Creating the pdf files normally has taken about 5 hours, and your software converted the plt files to pdfs in 9 minutes. |
I convinced my boss we have to buy at least one license (and once I have it, everyone will want it), so I'm supposed to give all the information to my IT guy next week when he's back from vacation.
Thanks for the great work!"
Nadel Architects, Inc.
|"We love it.|
Thank you for providing an excellent program. "
|"After reviewing a dozen different options for creating PDF's from CAD software the shining star in this field without a doubt goes to AcroPlot. We have been using this product for over two years now and I try to tell ever other CAD manger that I know or meet about AcroPlot. It produces the smallest file sizes of any product around and all at an incredibly low price.|
The added benefit of creating multi-page PDF's outside of ACAD allows us to easily archive our Project issue sets to take the snapshot in time we need for record set drawings that sometimes reach 300+ DWG's
I can not tell you haw much money and time we have saved over the past two years with our staff of almost 90 CAD users."
The Preston Partnership, LLC
|"All said it wouldn't work but it DOES. Have suggested all my engineers and consultants run your program on their machines as it is an easy way to print CAD FILES in the field or send to customers.|
Thanks for a program that WORKS !!!!"
|"I tried your Demo-Version: It's a great software - definitely superior and much easier to handle then Acrobat! Much faster, smaller and works very well too with a lot of Windows software ."|
|"Just to say I have reininstalled the product after receiving a new computer, excellent product still, infact better than before!!!"|
CAD / Drawing Office Supervisor
|"We are impressed by the small file sizes that AcroPlot produces."|
|"I cannot get over what great service/tech support I get from you. Never have I had such good response from ANY other company. Thanks!"|
Corvallis Tool Company
|"AcroPlot has saved me so many hours it's uncountable! One of the all time great values in software IMO..."|
Drafting & Design Plus
|"Today I downloaded your AcroPlot pro software and so far the eval copy worked perfect for me. The main reason to download your software was that with [a leading competitor's software] the pdf files are very large: a file converted with [their software] shows 1260 kb, with your program only 235!|
Also the possibility to combine other file formats (.xls) together with the layout tabs is very impressive. "
Patrick Wols (product engineer)
MACHINE SUPPORT BV
|"I would also like to say how much I enjoy and depend on your product. I am currently using AcroPlot to maintain over 5000 pdf's of our electrical schematic drawings for your company. AcroPlot is a great product."|
"I was converting our drawings using Acrobat originally, in one week I was luck to be able to convert 700 drawings to a pdf format. After purchasing AcroPlot. I converted all 5000 drawings in less then 3 days."
Lead Design - Electrical
|"I checked out [leading competitor] and thought - "Cool, that works easy enough and seems to do what I want." Then I checked out AcroPlot and thought, "Wow! I had now idea a program could do so much more, create such great PDFs, and have so many features!" |
"I am very impressed with the features, and always appreciate something that installs and does just about everything I want using the default settings - it shows you understand the user."
Curtis Y. Neufeld, P.E.
|"After evaluating several products that create PDF files from CAD drawings, I was extremely surprised at the intuitiveness and ease of use of Acroplot. I was creating PDF's within 2 minutes (without the "getting started guide" or tutorials)."|
Sr. Engineering Info Tech
Halifax Regional Water Commission
"We have been using AcroPlot regularly and we love it! Before AcroPlot we had to generate postscript files for each view, convert them to PDF's, open them in Adobe, rotate them to the proper rotation and save it as a different file name. Now, just a few mouse clicks and we have the finished file, bada bing, bada bang! Every time that I use it I have to smile at how sweet this program is!"
"I just wanted to compliment you on your program "AcroPlot". I wanted to let you know that I use it every day and it's irreplaceable. ... I just wanted to let you know that I think very highly of your product! It's a delight to work with a service orientated company such as Cadzation."
Archer Consulting Engineers
|"I can not tell you how excited I am about the way AcroPlot is performing. I tested it on the files with multiple named views in model space and it is working perfectly!"|
|"...I like it better than the [other leading CAD to PDF solution], because AcroPlot can convert drawings outside of AutoCAD and it is faster....I have downloaded the evaluation copy. I tested it and I decided to buy it. I do like it a lot ."|
Alex Usvitsky, Architect
"I've been testing AcroPlot against [other products] . I really like AcroPlot best... one icon in AutoCAD, and everything you need in a tightly packed dialog box instead of paging around for settings.
One thing I also noticed... PDF samples that I created with AcroPlot open much faster than those from the other programs! It takes over 20 seconds for all the detail tags and notation with wipeouts to finally pop up in the other samples – 25 seconds to see everything."
Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects
|"I tried your AcroPlot software (Trial version) and was 110% pleased with it. It worked so good I had a complete Architectural package converted in less than 4 minutes. It worked so fast, and effortlessly, that I didn't even realize it was completed. |
...It is certainly beyond my expectations and I most certainly will be ordering the full version immediately. CADzation is the most responsive, and helpful, company I have ever dealt with."
Shaw's Electronics Services
|"Things are going pretty good here with the incorporation of AcroPlot - we've had several users plot out 300+ B-size sheets as one file without any problems."|
TMI Systems Design Corporation
|"This is one my best finds! We make PDF's for our customers maintenance staff, our customer service department and it has proven to be invaluable for communicating with everyone."|
|"So on Monday I convinced management to buy ArcroPlot and give it a shot. Today is Friday and the phrase heard throughout the office this week was "give me one of those PDF's, I need it right away". What a cool product, my opinion about the PDF file format has completely changed."|
Pacific Engineering Design, LLC
|"I recommend to everyone to try AcroPlot. It's the best software I have purchased in a decade... by far. Acad users that require pdf output, this is it... worth every penny. You can create a pdf booklet of 30 drawings in about two minutes or so, incredible. It is a must have...." |
Genesis Marine Design, Inc
|"This program has been a great help to us and beats Acrobat hands down"|
|"I wanted to let you know how much we have been using you AcroPlot program. It is terrific. It is reliable, a great time-saver, and helps us maintain archive and record sets of drawings. I don't know how I got along without it."|
Dahlin Group Architects / Planners
|"You are The Man! I have used AutoCAD since 1987 and over the years there have been times where something new has come along that saves us a ton of time and allows us to do new things. It has been a LONG time since that's happened but here we are - thank you for creating AcroPlot. I'll tell everyone who'll listen about your great product."|
|"Just for information, in terms of performance, we have|
converted, in one run, 1128 .dwg files A4 sheet (similar to the one sent
to you) in 2 hours 12 min and 36 seconds or as an average 7.05 seconds
per page. Incredible."
ASTRON BUILDINGS S.A.
|"I must say, that AcroPlot is the best product in his class you can buy today. I really can't find anything in AcroPlot that you can upgrade or that you can make better. Its perfect."|
SIPRO INZENIRING d.o.o.
|"I have used Adobe Acrobat to individually convert drawings and in this business, when you have 50-100 drawings to convert at once, that eats up the price of your software in a heartbeat. Yesterday I was working at my other office and had a drawing to convert to pdf that contained a raster image I had pasted into it. Adobe Acrobat would not convert that drawing and failed repeatedly. It would work on it about five minutes and then error out. I sent the drawing to Brian, so I didn't have to come back to this office, and he converted it with AcroPlot in a flash and I was back in business."|
|"Your demo has proved invaluable to the one person we have that has full AutoCAD. We used it yesterday for two 100+ sheet jobs. It really makes PDF's much less painful than before. In fact it's almost too easy!"|
|"Just wanted to say I was very impressed by the program. Great idea and well implemented! I tried it out on a directory with 125 drawings - the program worked with no errors, and a whole lot faster than if I had to convert the drawings!"|
|"I'm using AcroPlot since a few months and it's an amazing program with an excellent support which saves us a lot of time. We work on several airport projects with a lot of engineering and construction companies which provide from time to time CD-ROMs full of drawings, everybody working with a different CAD system and different layer structures, fonts, linetypes, units, ... Until AcroPlot it was simply impossible to get an overall picture of what was delivered to you as DWGs or DXFs. |
Now we copy everything to a subdirectory & let AcroPlot print all files with one black&white ctb into one PDF file. This will be printed overnight on the Laser printer and in the morning you'll have a booklet of all drawings ready for further action. The bookmark function let you identify and find every single drawing and layout in that one PDF file. In Acrobat I split this one large file to different files for different user groups.
AcroPlot is an indispensable help in every CAD environment with different creators on different CAD systems or applications. And, for the first time, it's possible to exchange drawings paperless (and CADless) to different continents of this world. AcroPlot is easy to use from inside or outside AutoCAD (or even without AutoCAD) and you'll get first results within one hour after installation. It's one of the best add-ons to AutoCAD since a long time and it's a real cost saver."
unique, Zurich Airport Ltd
|"Just tested out the new verison (2003-03-11) and agree WOW, what a great revision/update."|
|"Acroplot is exactly what I was looking for. It is so simple to use and the quality of the PDFs is excellent. Thanks again! I will be at an AutoCAD seminar tomorrow and will pass the word about CADzation."|
"Until Acroplot it was either print and fax or email something that printed with jagged lines. Acroplot is simple to use, the prints are great, and if ever a problem or question Rodney will help. Acroplot has easily paid for itself because of increased productivity.
Thank you Rodney."
Pearl Studio 82
|"I recently acquired a third-party application that's really slick and I'm thinking some of your customers may have use of it. What it does, ---in a word, ---is publish Acad dwgs into Acrobat pdf format within Acad, ---seamlessly and effortlessly! The application is "AcroPlot" by CADzation..."|
|"AcroPlot has helped us tremendously in converting our Hanover 3D ACAD drawings to PDF format. We did have quite a bit of trouble accomplishing this before buying your product. We like to send out the drawings to customers in PDF format for security purposes. AcroPlot is strait forward, easy to use, and saves us large amounts of time. The software also hides hidden lines in the 3D drawings so that they come out clean and neat. We sometimes also use the software for plotting large quantities of drawings at once. If I need to plot twenty-five separate drawings in one directory, I simply use AcroPlot to convert them all to one PDF file, and then send that file to the plotter. The quality is good enough that we can plot in D size with out any trouble and it can save us a lot of time."|
The Hanover Co.
|"I have been using AcroPlot to create pdf files from AutoCAD drawings for approx. three months. During that time, I have converted over 900 drawings at the multidiscipline engineering firm where I work in Anchorage, Alaska. |
Rodney has developed an excellent product, and always responds to my questions quickly. Even when he is on the road, I usually receive a call back within an hour... which is exceptional customer service in my book.
I would highly recommend AcroPlot to everyone who uses AutoCAD and needs to send files electronically to a client."
G. David Glass
|"I have been using AcroPlot by CADzation for some time now. I found that this program is easy to use and is the most complete cad to pdf program out there. I don't send drawings by e-mail since I started using AcroPlot. Vendors like it to because alot of them don't have a cad program. The support has been outstanding."|
|"Just a quick note to say that we are quite impressed with the speed and quality of the PDFs that your "little tool" has produced. We are currently in production of a number of Planning Applications and Waste Licence Applications entailing up to 70 Auto Cad drawings and I am confidant that AcroPlot will be of great assistance in final production." |
Gerard Finane Dip. Min. Eng AIEI,
Senior Draftsman/Project Engineer,
TES Consulting Engineers
|"I had already been thinking of showing your product in one of the upcoming meetings. I had purchased it from you last month and it worked like a charm. I had to convert hundreds of cad files into just a few PDF's and did it in just a matter of hours.|
We actually had the client say they could not believe we made them so fast."
|"It does everything we needed it to do. We especially like the multiple file conversion part where we can put more than one drawing into one pdf file. It fits perfectly into what we need."|
Electrical Engineer / Facility Engineer
Continental Tire North America
|"AcroPlot is a very good program, the interface is easy to use...I had no problems with setup and running, everything was automated...|
First time users should not have any problems running with your default settings and setup...
Full list of advance and useful features that should cover any creation of PDF files...
Highly recommend AcroPlot to our clients and consultants...
Takes the headache out of transferring information without dealing with font files, xref, plot settings...
