MetaDraw Customer Application
Drawing Board, a MetaDraw based VB 6 application,
is a fast and simple program for drawing floor plans
and ductwork. Drawings can be quickly created by
dragging and dropping drawing objects from the
built-in object catalogs onto the drawing window.
The drawing objects in Drawing Board are
pre-programmed shapes such as entire room shapes,
walls, doors, windows, and ductwork.
These are intelligent objects that contain data
useful for the Chvac, Rhvac and Ductsize programs.

Quoting Thomas Thompson, Creator of Drawingboard
- "MetaDraw is great for CAD applications such as Drawing Board. The vast
number of properties, methods and events it provides makes it so you can do
a lot more with it than you might initially think. MetaDraw enabled us to
implement features such as letting the user define his own units, scale,
paper size, layers, and sheets. The ObjTags property has enabled us to save
a huge amount of data for any object on the drawing. It was easy to
implement very powerful drawing navigation features, such as precise
mousewheel zooming and panning, zoom and pan mode, zoom in/out, zoom window,
zoom to fit, etc. We even use MetaDraw for behind-the-scenes things such as
saving collections of user-defined objects in the Catalog Browser. MetaDraw
is a pleasure to use because it is so full-featured and stable, the help is
excellent, and the customer support from Bennet-Tec has always been great.
