CadTools General / Re: CadTools on ZWCAD 2017
« Last post by Sash_x on August 16, 2017, 10:43:59 AM »

I've just tested CadTools on ZwCAD 2017. To make it work you must manualy enter Cad version and parameter, so in this case ''zwcad.application''. In lower versions Zwsoft used zwcad+ name, since 2017 they droped ''+'' sign. Some functions doesn't work but I can confirm that 85% of them work just fine. Problem ocures when you want to make multiple points/ reapete comands with Cadtools.

They made some modifications in ZwCad2017 and that is the reason why some comand dosen't work (slope and road signs) or they partly work (track offset and station form PL).

Hope this information helps.



Info: I made some tests, they must changed something how the polyline is drawn. Problem ocures with comands: Revision cloud, Offset Multiple and 3d (make only one offset, cannot make multiple offset), track station can track only one point, have to reapete command, ...

It seems to something wrong with your installation. Probably some DLL not registered correct. The ImageList that contains all icons is used before it's in place. This error hasn't been reported before therefore I believe the problem is in your installation.

  • Uninstall CadTools
  • Download the setup file to a folder
  • RightClick on the setup file and select "Run as administrator"
After installation, in the Start menu (Start button) select CadTools and right click and select "Properties". In the compatibility tab select the option "Run as Administrator"

Try to Start CadTools

Hi Lars

uninstalled, re downloaded, reinstalled, same message.   ImageList must be initialized before it can be used.   Is there a special routine for the first use of the installed program I am missing ? Do I need to download the update file as well ?

Try to uninstall CadTools and download a new installation file and install it. The USB version might be detected as a Trojan by your virus software, I do believe this is a false alarm but I suggest you avoid to use it.

Hi  I downloaded CADTools, apparently successfully, installed it, but when I open it in AC10 the cadtools menu doesnt seem tobe able to load properly, I,m getting the basic window with little blank squares and an error message - image list must be initialized before it can be used -   ??  Also there is some kind of trojan virus embedded in your USB version preventing me from using it.

Help please   Chris

Plot the triangles as 3Dfaces (option in CadTools View/Edit Surface). Use AutoCAD's menu: View, Visual styles, Shaded (or try some of the styles)

I have done the triangulation of two surfaces, and performed cut(red) and fill(green), but it only colours the polylines, how can I get cad tools to shade the relevant areas to cut and fill? Many thanks in advance  :)
