To help U.S. Gypsum customers find CAD-based information in the new USG ACTION (Architectural & Construction Technical Information & Ordering Network), the SoftSource viewer will display drawings, export them to CAD systems or send them to laser printers.
SoftSource also is discussing with U.S. Gypsum a license to use the USG ACTION drawings and information in future products. SoftSource is considering including the library in its new CAD system, code named Sausalito, due to ship later this year.
SoftSource is seeking similar licenses with companies wishing to distribute product information or electronic catalogs in a CAD format. For inquiries, contact Gary Rohrabaugh, SoftSource, 301 W. Holly, Bellingham, WA 98225; voice 800-877-1875; FAX 206-671-1131.
