Better offset for BricsCAD and AutoCAD with JTB OffsetInXref 2.3

JTB OffsetInXref can be used with BricsCAD and AutoCAD to enable the OFFSET command to work with externally referenced drawings, blocks, and lines within associated arrays, dimensions and tables.

  • Once loaded, the standard OFFSET command will work with blocks and externally referenced content: instead of responding "Cannot offset that object.", the app will automatically copy the selected object into the current drawing, allowing it to participate with the OFFSET command.
  • The lowest-level object will be selected, if part of a nested Xref or block, but some objects - such as Hatches - will still cause the "Cannot offset that object" prompt to be displayed.
  • The app can either have the OFFSET command create geometry on the current layer (the default) or the source layer. The XOFFSETLAYER command allows configuration of this option.

Free trial available at JTB OffsetInXref.

Autodesk Named User usage reporting

Are you considering what Autodesk plan for Named Users you will go ahead with, now that there will be no more network licenses?

Product usage reporting with user details comes with the Premium plan and Enterprise plan for Autodesk Named Users at an extra cost compared to the Standard plan. With it you can see which individuals are using each product and version, and their frequency of use.

If the usage reporting sounds compelling you might find that the price is much higher for the Premium or Enterprise plans than if you stay with the Standard plans and add JTB FlexReport that together with JTB Process Monitor will give you great usage reporting of your named user licenses.

You can even monitor both the total usage time and the active usage time. You don’t want to lock up a license for a user using the license for a few hours per week or month.

JTB FlexReport with JTB Process Monitor works fine with any of Autodesk’s plans; Standard, Premium, Enterprise and Education. You can also monitor other software of your choice.

If you’re interested, try JTB FlexReport and JTB Process Monitor for free.

AutoCAD THUMBSIZE–DWG thumbnail preview images

Thumbnail previews in the AutoCAD 2013 DWG file format and newer are stored as PNG images and provides higher-quality thumbnail previews in a smaller file size than previous image format did. Image resolution is still controlled by the THUMBSIZE system variable. However, the maximum valid value has increased from 2 to 8. If you do not wish to include thumbnail previews in the drawing you can still use the RASTERPREVIEW (THUMBSAVE) system variable to disable them.

Here is how THUMBSIZE is described in the documentation for AutoCAD 2013: Specifies the display resolution in pixels for all thumbnail preview images. It’s saved in the registry with the initial value 3. Whether preview images are saved in drawings is controlled by the THUMBSAVE system variable.

THUMBSAVE (Save a thumbnail preview image) is also available in OPTIONS dialog box on the Open and Save tab, clicking on Thumbnail Preview Settings. THUMBSIZE is only available on the command line.

The larger thumbnail preview used the longer it takes also to save the drawing so if you really want to optimize size and speed set THUMBSAVE to 0 for off.

The preview size in AutoCAD’s file dialog boxes is only showing max 174x101 in resolution. It’s a pity larger options are not available.

The actual size of the thumbnail also depends on how AutoCAD’s application window is sized. Normally it is much wider than higher resulting in thumbnails that are using max width but less in height.

If the current view is using the 2D Wireframe visual style the max height or width of the thumbnail will be 256 even if THUMBSIZE is higher than 2. I can certainly see a need for a change here in an upcoming AutoCAD version as the preview sometimes makes more sense with 2D drawings.

THUMBSIZE Resolution DWG File Size
N/A N/A 152 KB with THUMBSAVE 0
(only 1 KB less than with THUMBSAVE 1 and THUMBSIZE 0)
0 64 x 64 153 KB
1 128 x 128 155 KB
2 256 x 256 158 KB
3 512 x 512 168 KB
4 1024 x 1024 191 KB
5 1440 x 1440 213 KB
6 1600 x 1600 225 KB
7 1920 x 1920 242 KB
8 2560 x 2560 284 KB

To really see the larger thumbnails I used Windows Explorer’s preview pane.

THUMBSIZE=0

THUMBSIZE=3

Here is a test using a drawing with 3D objects and materials and note how the thumbnail adds up to 9 MB to the drawing. The increase due to the thumbnail depends on how the PNG image is compressed and can in worst case probably be up to 15-16 MB for the largest resolution.

THUMBSIZE Resolution DWG File Size
N/A N/A 1154 KB with THUMBSAVE 0
(1 KB less than with THUMBSAVE 1 and THUMBSIZE 0)
0 64 x 64 1155 KB
1 128 x 128 1186 KB
2 256 x 256 1203 KB
3 512 x 512 1261 KB
4 1024 x 1024 1495 KB
5 1440 x 1440 4472 KB
6 1600 x 1600 5172 KB
7 1920 x 1920 6671 KB
8 2560 x 2560 10277 KB

Here is an example using THUMBSIZE set to 1.

AutoCAD 2021 potentially unwanted?

AutoCAD 2021 with its main executable acad.exe is detected as a potentially unwanted app by Windows Defender Antivirus as Program:Win32/Unwaders.A!ml

It’s said that this program has potentially unwanted behavior. Of that I can sometimes agree.

acad unwanted

“Win32/Unwaders.A!ml is a detection for computer adware that shows unruly advertisements on the infected computer. This threat usually penetrates the computer is several ways including malicious ad campaign and software bundling method.

There is really no difference how Adware:Win32/Unwaders.A!ml attacks as compare to all threats from this same category. All of them are taking advantage of software bundling hoax to sneak onto computer even without permission from users.“

Personally I think this is a false positive. It happens once in a while even with our apps that Antivirus programs think they are a threat even if they are not. Usually it is fixed by an updated Antivirus definition within a few days.

Update: Now also AutoCAD 2020 is detected in the same way.

Avanti Start-App to remotely start and shut down computers from your mobile

Avanti Start-App is a mobile app that allows you to remotely start, restart and shut down computers.

As a system administrator you will be able to view all your network PCs, identify their status (On or Off) start them, shut them down or restart them from your phone, from anywhere in the world as long as an internet connection is available.

A computer on for eight hours uses almost 600 kWh and emits 175 kg of CO2 per year. So leaving it turned on over a weekend just to be able to access it is not good for your organisation nor is it good for the environment.

During current pandemic times with COVID-19 Avanti Start-App is most helpful for distance home workers that use various means of remote desktop (RDP) to work on the computers located at the office.

No need to leave the organisation PCs turned on to gain remote access during or out of working hours.
Employees will also be able to use the Avanti Start-App using their domain\username & password. This will enable them to see their PC status (On-Off), start it, Shut it down or Restart it.

Find out more on our Avanti Start-App page.

Lines connected automatically to blocks in AutoCAD

This app automatically link blocks with other block(s) that have the same attribute value by a non-plottable line. Each master block may have many minions. If the attribute value is the same, a line is created automatically linking the master (from insertion point) to the minion (to insertion point). The link will stretch and remain connected to the blocks if the blocks are moved. If the attribute value is changed, the link will disconnect, and reconnect to another similar block if necessary.

If you would like any tailor made app like this one or anything else for your CAD software like AutoCAD, Revit, BricsCAD or the like contact us or take a look at our list of apps.

JTB FlexReport 12.0.0 is now ready.

Quite a lot have been add added, been improved and fixed in this release. Codemeter monitoring support was planned to be included but will come in next version in March.

See the version history for details.

Autodesk user? Take a look at Autodesk Network Licenses RIP, New Named User Plans.

Autodesk Network Licenses RIP, New Named User Plans

Autodesk is retiring plans based on serial numbers and launching new named user plans. No more concurrent usage with network licenses (Autodesk Network License Manager / FLEXlm / FlexNet) allowing multiple users share a license of say AutoCAD, Revit or Inventor.

How will you prepare for the transition to named user plans? At your first renewal date after May 7, 2020 you need to be prepared. Subscriptions with multi-user access and maintenance plans will retire on May 7, 2021 and cannot be renewed after this date. As part of retiring maintenance, the last version of the Design & Creation Suites will be released in April 2020 for customers to download, and the last date to renew Suites will be April 16, 2020.

UPDATE 2020-03-04 by Autodesk: We will extend the ability to purchase new multi-user subscription plans to August 7, 2020 and move their retirement to August 7, 2021. While we communicated that we would begin transitioning customers to named user starting May 7, 2020, we do not want to introduce a change at a time when business-as-usual is hard enough.

Will you guess or ask users how much they use Autodesk products?

Or will you use JTB FlexReport and be better prepared with actual numbers based on usage history?

Usage per Feature per Day.


More details on the terms and conditions page. There is an Autodesk forum to discuss and ask about these changes.

Discuss on Facebook group CAD Managers Unite! if you like. 

Donnie Gladfelter has made an extensive post on his blog. “this hypothetical customer would need to invest $24,550/year to maintain the level of access they have today for a cost of $5,925/year. That’s an increase of nearly 315%!”

Time to prepare so you know how to proceed when it is time for renewal. Considering options for users using AutoCAD too little to justify a full license. Maybe AutoCAD LT, a free DWG viewer, BricsCAD or similar.

Chart report on how many hours users have been using a feature.

Both now and in the future you might find use of our JTB Process Monitor that works with non-network licenses like the Named User Plans too. You don’t want to keep paying for expenses licenses that hardly are used.

Feel free to contact us to discuss how JTB FlexReport and JTB Process Monitor can help you. Free trial available.
