I need some input on software to use within AutoCAD that will essentially:
1)Allow insertion of different scalable blocks with attributes pulled from our database
2)Allow labeling of groups of identical blocks (e.g. "5-catalog #222") with a leader line
3)Insert schedules of the attributes of those selected blocks
4)Output the block attribute data
5)Allow some customization/personalization
6)Work with future versions of AutoCAD
Vague enough for you? I guess I'm being purposely general because I believe an application developed for an industry other than the one I work in may be customized for our use. Do any of these features ring a bell with anything you've seen/used/developed?
Alternatively we're going to be looking for someone to write the programming needed to do this.
Thanks for any help you might be able to give!
