"This tool has raised you to super-hero status around here!" -Bryce Wilson, Student, Northeastern University

"Our mechanical department has come to rely on your parameter transformer tool as a substitute for [a competitor’s product] for working with a very large national retail client. Also the 3D section box tool has become an integral part of our day to day coordination between disciplines." -Lawrence Robinson, Nelson-Rudie & Associates, Inc.

“After setting up the templates, creating the initial views and all the required sheets just takes a couple of clicks. We then create any dependent views and using the Parameter Modifier can assign scope boxes and rename to suit.
