KCAD v1.0 Released
Published by KermMartian on December 8, 2005 at 10:54:00 PM CST | Discuss this article

After a few weeks of casual programming, I have released a 2K CAD program in TI-BASIC. For those unfamiliar with the term, CAD or Computer Aided Design allows the creation of drawings, plans, and illustrations in vector format. Unlike bitmapped graphics, where file size increases exponentially as the image bounds increase, CAD files increase in size based on the file's complexity rather than its dimensions. Since all elements are stored as mathematical objects such as circles, lines, and arcs, the image can be infinitely zoomed and panned with no loss of quality or pixelation. In addition, elements can be added, modified, or removed without affecting any of the other objects in the file. You can see some screenshots below along with a download link.
