PlexEarth Tools 2.0 Beta Available

A day ago I spoke to them of the novelties that the 2.0 version of PlexEarth Tools for AutoCAD would bring, one of the most practical developments that I have seen on Google Earth on the part of a member of the AutoDesk Developer Network (ADN). Download in English The beta version has been released today. it can be downloaded, test and what is important in these stages: report possible bugs.

What's New in This Release

It is interesting that this Beta version is free while the commercial version is released, according to what I have been told, at the beginning of June of 2010. He who falls asleep can not lower it.

Of the best regarding what I saw a few days ago: Now it is available in Spanish and other languages ​​supported by AutoCAD such as:

  • English
  • Portuguese
  • French
  • Italian
  • German
  • Czech
  • Polish
  • Hungarian

Of course, this version does not run on AutoCAD 2009 or earlier, but on 2010 and 2011. It works on:

  • AutoCAD® 2010-2011
  • AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2010-2011
  • AutoCAD® Map 3D 2010-2011
  • AutoCAD® Architecture 2010-2011Price and licensesI do not know the price of the license, we'll know until June. What I do know is that there will no longer be only one type of license but a Pro and a Premium will be handled, which I think is good for escalating prices. I was also informed by one of its creators, who will give special discounts to those who download the beta version and register it.

    The Pro version: This will include the features of interaction with Google Earth images, things that until now I have not seen another application perform so clearly:

    • Create mosaic of images, either over rectangular regions, inside a polygon or along a path.
    • Import image as an individual item, in the extension of a specific site.
    • Export georeferenced images in AutoCAD to Google Earth.
    • Export objects to Google Earth
    • Draw from AutoCAD points, polygons or routes taking Google Earth in the background.
    • Digitize directly on Google Earth, with snap option, to draw on the dwg.
