Blog: HighDesign 2017. Alternative CAD and Beyond.

HighDesign is, in its essence, a CAD software. Yet with its design tools and an approach to projects rather than drawings it is also much more. Whereas most other solutions on the market offer traditional drafting tools, which keep in line with the digital drafting board paradigm, HighDesign adds a...

Re: HighDesign 2017 Released

Andrew, so If I purchased 2016 Pro via Apple App Store, I don't have one year free updates? If this is the case, what are my options to update to 2017 Pro? -Rudy Rudy, unfortunately the App Store makes it impossible for developers to implement upgrades and renewals. However, we want to do all we ca...

Re: HD2017 doesn't recognise .dwg file

We are investigating this situation, but we haven't been able to reproduce it so far. There are other ways to open a DWG: Open with... from the contextual menu in the Finder, or by dragging the file to the application icon or onto an open window. Do those methods work for you? Thanks!

Re: Mac OS Sierra

Everything looks perfectly fine with macOs Sierra. Our tests have all been successful (we use it daily) and we have had no reports from users.

Re: How to change the scale of an imported DXF or PDF file?

Hi Scott, in HighDesign you can resize the drawing just as in SketchUp, just more easily: 1. Find an item of known length in the drawing. No need to select or group anything. 2. Use the Measure Line tool to trace it. 3. While the Measure tool is still active, in the Object Info panel click the Lengt...

Re: HD 16.1 file locked up

Quick reply until we have access to the file (see our email from support): try to open it in 2016.0.2, because one of the fixes of that update addressed a situation like that. There are good chances it will open the file. Otherwise we'll look into the file and see what is causing the problem.

Re: Photoprogrammetry and Projections mystery

Hi, I can think of a couple of causes: a) launching 2015.3 after using 2016 may have altered the shortcut preferences file (because of the different underlying architectures). In this case, you would have to reset the preferences by holding down the Command and Shift keys while launching HighDesign....
