Yes, this can be achieved using the inbuilt template manager tool. If your practice requires assistance migrating existing title block templates, please contact us.

DOCOpack that’s the tedium and time out of managing title block information across contract drawing sets. This represents a significant time saver for practices and maintains accuracy across drawing packages.

While there is currently no charge to use DOCOpack we do plan to introduce a subscription charge later to cover maintenance costs. We have not developed a pricing model at this stage however we plan to make it nominal to ensure we can continue to develop and refine the software.

Yes, DOCOpack has been developed in a real-world professional environment and has been used to deliver large scale construction packages.

Yes. A DOCOpack template file is simply a Rhino file with some additional user data describing how the title block elements fit together. The default template that ships with the plugin is fully functional and the simplest approach is to modify the practice logo, fonts and layout. Going a little deeper, the template manager allows you to add new custom layouts, north arrows, stamps, in addition to defining project thesaurus terms. Templates can be adapted to mirror your existing title blocks.

The export functions in DOCOpack use the inbuilt RhinoPDF driver to export layouts to PDF adhering to strict file naming conventions in addition to combined and individual pdf generation. This does not prevent you printing in the standard way using any preferred printer. 

DOCOpalette FAQs

A mac version is not currently in development however if there is sufficient demand, we will work towards a mac version.

Key limitations to consider: 

Currently only hatches are exported to Photoshop layers. We are working on exporting select linework and picture frame objects, but this has not yet been implemented.

Changing the name of the Layout will break the link to Photoshop requiring a fresh export.

Photoshop updates are not instantaneous and time to process varies each layout varies based on the number of layers exported. Available memory and hardware specification of the PC also affects how fast the system runs.

Yes. DOCOpalette sends commands to Photoshop to do all the image processing therefore you must have a fully functioning installation of Adobe Photoshop on the same machine as your installation of Rhino.

Yes. This is a core design feature and why Adobe Photoshop was chosen as the raster engine rather than a baked in image processor. You can edit templates as you wish and link to multiple different templates in the same project. This allows for maximum creativity while maintaining repeatability across

DOCOpalette sets up an automation pathway workflow between Rhino Layouts and Photoshop. Hatches on Rhino layers are automatically mapped to linked smart layers and composited in Photoshop. The raster image output from Photoshop is automatically updated in Rhino

DOCOgrade FAQs

User documentation, guides and tutorials for all DOCOlab software can be found at the documentation site

Not currently however once the beta phase is complete and the tool is stable, we intend to release it as open source.

While we are in beta testing phase we request that you register so we can better track errors that occur and have a point of contact should we require more information on the issue. In future it is likely we will remove the license key requirement from this product

Triangulation of curve networks provides the most efficient and reliable way of generating complex & irregular topographic surfaces however the DOCOgrade workflow provides seamless integration of standard Rhino NURBS surfaces into the generated mesh – bringing together the best of both worlds.

Yes. DOCOgrade will always be free and we are planning to share the code base as open source.
