1. Good news for Bricscad & GeoTools users:

Three existing GeoTools commands : GT_EASY3DPOLY, GT_EASY3DFACE and GT_EASY3DPOINT from the GeoTools Draw menu will be made part of the GeoTools FREEWARE-for-Bricscad collection from V 12.19 of GeoTools, expected to release early next week.

All these three commands are enhanced forms of the 3dpoly, 3dface and the Point commands with an easy way to enter the Z value.

These three commands will also be available under the Draw menu in the new Bricscad skin that we introduced via GeoTools V 12.18.

2. Using GeoTools with Non-Western Locales and Character Sets

We have been having issues with GeoTools for Bricscad users using the the Chinese language Windows versions.

If your Windows System Locale is set to use Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Hebrew, Arabic, Cyrilic or similar non-latin character sets, GeoTools for Bricscad will not function correctly unless System Locale is reset to English.

Read this post to learn how to solve the problem.
