ASP.NET Website and AutoCAD Macro Programming Project
--- SERIOUS BIDDERS ONLY PLEASE ---
--- PLEASE DO NOT PASTE PROFILES IN PMB ---
Please read carefully..
We wish to develop a web application to take information from a web page (user input) and lookup tables in a SQL Server database and use that information to send to an..
>>> AutoCAD application installed on a web server.
..we want the AutoCAD application to then generate a drawing and send it back to the user as a PNG file for viewing on the web page and we also want a downloadable PDF and the options to download the DWG and DXF versions of the drawing.
>>> The preferred candidate will have lots of experience writing macros - this is the most important factor with this project.
We believe using the AutoCAD - ObjectARX and [url removed, login to view] API controls will be the best way to do this.
>>> Alternative ideas welcome.
We need to find a developer who knows this technology, has a good grasp on trigonometry and has a work history with this type of work. Our preferred programming language is VB.NET as that is what we have developed applications with in the past.
We will need to arrange a testing server for you to use and then on completion, you will deliver to us the full source code to transfer to our server. The AutoCAD application will be the motor that generates the output but you will also be building the application which includes the GUI and the database design etc. You will be provided with a detailed plan concerning the types of drawings and their different variations (depending on pitch, end fixtures, length etc.).
You will need to set up an environment so I can follow through with your progress to ensure you stay on the right track. This application will be designed for Architects that specify our products so we will be organizing the services of a graphic designer to provide the graphics for the GUI. Your job here will be to provide place holder graphics to define the HTML structure of the page.
We will be also arranging the services of a 3D modeler to provide a range of static illustrations that will be factored into this as well. This will be incorporated into the web progam and the desired images will be displayed in a sliding gallery at the bottom of the web page. The images that need to be displayed will be sellected from the database during the lookup process.
This might suit a person with an architectural background as the program will be drawing floor joists made of timber framing and steel bracing.
Please let me know if a project like this may interest you. If so can you provide some examples where you have done this work before. We are still in the early planning stages of this development but we do need to find someone to work with to get the ball rolling.
>>> Please bid on total of 280 hours - Budget $3000
If you can show me any existing examples of this type of application it would be of great benefit.
>>> Please do not paste large blocks of generic text about yourself like your profile or skills etc. into the PMB
It is of the utmost importance that you are able to work with us full time to produce this project. Work may not start for two or three weeks. At this stage we do not even know how this works, so we have to make arrangements so you can set up a testing server. If you already have this environment setup, all the better, you can tell us what you need from us.
>>> Any information you have about the required software, where to buy it etc. please inform me as soon as possible. <<<
More can be discussed in the PMB. Thank you.
>>> I have attached some examples of what the macros will draw (without the colour). These will change based on length, width, pitch etc. <<<
