Hi all.
If anyone is interested, here is a link to a new site dedicated to DeltaCad.
http://dcaduser.itrello.com/page3.html
Here, you can share DeltaCad files with others. There is also a message board. If you use DeltaCad to create wiring diagrams like I do, you can download my electrical symbol files. DeltaCad is a great, inexpensive program to use for wiring diagrams. I highly recommend it.

Sorry to hear that.

I just bought another seat of AutoCAD 2008 LT, and for $500 it does just about everything my full version does.

Scott and I checked my Generic CADD to his AutoCAD DXF with this. Anyone willing to let me send it to them to check compatibility with Delta or other CAD? I already know that AutoCAD doesn't handle Generic's fills.
Thanks in advance,
Joe

If it does not handle DWG files, then its pretty worthless in the commercial construction world. We are required by contract to do as-builts in CAD which means DWG.

How about AutoSketch?
This is by AutoDesk the same as AutoCad but their low end version.
Their propaganda says that you can edit a DWG file with AutoSketch.

Amazon lists it for $118.99

You can get AutoCad LT for a 30 day free trial from Autodesk.
