Gray Technical Excel Draw v1 | 317 kB
Have you ever wanted to create drawings inside of Excel? If you have, then you probably know that Microsoft Excel, while amazing for spread sheets, does have its limitations. Graphing is not one of Excel’s strong suits, especially when it comes to drawings, until now. With the Excel Draw version 2.5.1 add-in you can use Excel to open, create, graph, export and even view X1 Y1 Z1 X2 Y2 Z2 data in 3D within a drawing style format, all in real time!
Load a DXF file, copy XYZ data directly or create data on the spot inside your Excel spreadsheet. Objects are simple to add with a visually distinct icon for every object type: Rectangles, Lines, Points, Circles and Text. Absolute, Relative and Z Values are all optional. Every object can have its own unique settings or simply stay generic. XYZ value ordering can be modified but need to stay uniform throughout your project.
With multiple objects displayed drawings can sometimes become confusing, causing you to lose track of what shape is associated to which value. The built-in Drawing Manager will help organize all your data. This manager allows you to highlight and select one object from a complete list of shapes making it easier to locate and modify object data. Modifying graphed object values will automatically update your drawing in real time.
Exporting your drawing is just as easy as opening or creating it. With the Exporting icons you can quickly export your data in several different formats; including drawing (DXF and TXT), image (PNG and JPG), document (PDF and HTML) and spreadsheet (XLS and CSV).
The major advantage Excel Draw has over competitors is its ability to view and graph objects in 3D without AutoCad. Other Excel to DXF software have options like opening DXF files, or creating DXF files and some interact with AutoCAD to manipulate DXF files. The problem however is the common denominator that all of these applications share, the requirement of AutoCAD. Excel Draw is the first and only commercial application that literally turns Microsoft Excel into a CAD drawing software. View, create and graph drawings only using Microsoft Excel. No AutoCAD Required!
