CADdirect 2022 uses the Appload command so you can easily load LISP programs.

Dimensioning and Measuring

You can create five basic types of dimensions: linear, angular, radial, diametral, and ordinate. You can create dimensions for existing entities by selecting them, or you can create dimensions by selecting points within a drawing. For example, you can create a linear dimension either by selecting the entity to be dimensioned or by specifying the first and second extension line origins.

AutoCAD® Dynamic Blocks Support

You can use the Dynamic Blocks created in AutoCAD® directly inside of CADdirect. You can control the visibility, flip, stretch, and rotate just as you would in AutoCAD®.
