Add Extra Symbols

Rather than add more and more symbols (blocks) to the gCADPlus setup file and make it unwieldy, we have developed a series of palettes that add new symbols to gCADPlus. Each link under the image of the palette allows users to download a single gCADPlus file. Once downloaded, use the BLOCKS command (or File > Insert) and then use the browse option to locate the new file and insert it while working on your current design. To view the symbol set at high resolution, click directly on the image.

Tip: When using a palette of symbols, it is a good idea to explode the incoming drawing so you can immediately see and use the new symbols. Drag into position and scale if required.
