Docupoint announced the release of the latest version of its DrawingSearcher AutoCAD search engine for CAD drawings. The newest version allows users to search across multiple platforms and file types, including all of the most common types of AutoCAD files. According to the company, the new version improves upon previous versions of the search engine while streamlining the user interface and improving overall functionality by including more file types. It is also now supported on mobile device platforms such as iPad, Droid, iPhone, Kindle and Surface, among others.
Among the new features are graphical previews included in search results, mobile device compatibility, an improved, streamlined graphical user interface and enhanced indexing performance with support for multi-thread processing.
Docupoint has also modified its pricing terms, allowing for a per-user fee and concurrent user licensing rather than continuing the previous one-time investment pricing model.
"The newest version of DrawingSearcher builds off an already popular platform while improving its capabilities based on what our customers want and what we need to maintain our position as the best AutoCAD search engine available," said David Hughs, president of Docupoint. "The reality of most companies is that they have AutoCAD drawings in many different formats from many different eras. DrawingSearcher 2014 is unique in its ability to service all of the most popular formats in a way that improves the user experience while adding to its functionality, both on a PC and on mobile devices, and now with a more scalable, per-user licensing model."
DrawingSearcher is compatible with all Document Management Systems, including Autodesk's Vault, Microsoft's Sharepoint, and Blue Cielo. Files are read directly in their native form without any change to their file properties, while the file content is indexed for immediate retrieval from all popular Web browsers.
