1ST Pricing Enhances Revolutionary BIM pricing tool for AutoCAD with Automatically Created Elevation Views

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

JANUARY 20, 2005: Signal Hill, Calif. – 1ST Pricing, a Southern California-based technology company, has released a major upgrade to their FREE downloadable plug-in for AutoCAD products that creates an "elevation view" from the "plan view" in an instant with just a few clicks of the mouse. The elevation view will show the 1ST Pricing windows and doors with the glass and grid inserts correctly scaled in true perspective. The plug-in works in most Autodesk® products including AutoCAD®, AutoCAD Architectural Desktop™ and Autodesk Map 3D®.

"Adding the capability of an instantly created elevation view to our AutoCAD Window and Door Toolkit is an important step in helping AutoCAD users be more productive," says Douglas Lopez, President and Founder of 1ST Pricing, Inc. "Creating an elevation view is a time consuming, labor intensive effort and typically results in many errors. An architect or designer can save many hours of frustration, increase the detail, and improve the accuracy of the elevation view with our toolkit."

The AutoCAD plug-in uses 1ST Pricing’s revolutionary Building Information Model (BIM) pricing capabilities. 1ST Pricing’s plug-in captures building information details and provides multiple, line-item quotes in real time. These comparative quotes are based on the project zip code and provides "delivered-to-the-jobsite pricing." The plug-in creates an electronic bill of materials and material schedule saving both time and money while reducing quote errors. The detailed material list also contains a unique reference number for online purchase by the contractor or homeowner.

"This new capability greatly enhances our plug-in," says Lopez. "The 1ST Pricing technology generates a true ground level view for the AutoCAD user including scaling objects properly if the wall lines are angled in the plan view."

1ST Pricing has already completed toolkits for TurboCad, and AutoCAD. They have begun developing plug-ins for other major CAD applications and expect to release them later this year. The plug-in is available now at www.1STPricing.com. Both the plug-in and the pricing service are free. 1ST Pricing is an Autodesk® Authorized Developer.
