GraphPad for creating staging drawings

I was recently contacted by a production designer in California who was interested in using GraphPad to sketch sets for various tv shows.  Okay, I have to admit that’s a pretty cool use for GraphPad, so I wanted to see what I could do to make it work for him.  He sent me the example drawing below:

SetExample

Looking at it, it seems like something GraphPad could handle, so I agreed to work with him on setting it up.  I intend to use the next couple of post to talk about what I’m doing to help him, making it clear what can be done in the current version of GraphPad as opposed to things that will require some enhancements.

This first video shows how I created one of the symbols he uses in his drawing as well as the title block.  In addition, I discuss an enhancement he’s requested for setting the scale on the printout that translates a measurement on the printout to an actual length on the set.

Integrating GraphPad

This video shows how GraphPad could be integrated with backend systems, both the download of customer information as well as the upload of data collected in GraphPad, the drawing PDF and any associated pictures.  While GraphPad has been architected for integration, it would still require a significant amount of work in order to integrate GraphPad, not only in the creation of web services but the development of additional features in GraphPad itself.  This video simply outlines how data captured in GraphPad could be uploaded to a server, the type of data that can be captured as well as how the PDF and associated images could be uploaded.

Customers interested in integration of GraphPad with their servers are encouraged to contact me by going to my website:

GraphPad configured for estimating scaffolding.

The following video is a proof of concept demonstration of GraphPad configured for estimating scaffolding.  It should be noted that this demonstration is based on the features currently under development for the configurable version of GraphPad, and not for any product currently available for sale.  Customers who are interested in these and other features are encouraged to contact me with their suggestions, and to be sure the new product will be able to meet their needs.  Larger companies that are interested in having a custom app based on GraphPad will find more information on my website:

All the new Features being worked on for GraphPad

This video shows how all the new features I’ve been working on, including some I haven’t discussed until now, will work together in GraphPad.  Although these features still need some work, I encourage users to consider the possibilities and to contact me if they have any suggestions no how they could be used or enhanced.

If you have any suggestions or would like to learn more about GraphPad, please contact me through my website:

GraphPad – Features under development

The configurable tables I’ve been working on are designed to fully interact with the library, drawing engine and all the new features I’m adding.  This video shows what I’m planning on doing, from fill areas that automatically calculate the cost of pouring cement, to adding gutters to a roof design, to assembling scaffolding by snapping objects together from the library – this video demonstrates how effective GraphPad can be when configured to meet your companies needs.  I also demonstrate how GraphPad can be integrated with a backend system through a web service that gives each employee their daily appointments displayed on a MapView.  After selecting an appointment your employees can get turn by turn directions from the currently location, and when they arrive, the customers information can automatically pre-populate any forms that are opened.  All these capabilities are already very far along in their development dramatically reducing the time it would take to create custom applications from scratch!

New feature under development: Configurable tables with object components.

 

The following video demonstrates a new feature under development, configurable tables and object components. Tables can be configured with various numbers of columns and footers, and can count not only objects, but the components used to make up an object. For example: a gutter symbol may represent a gutter/downspout attachment, 2 45 degree bends, an 8 foot length of down pipe, a 90 angle and a defuser. By adding a single symbol to a drawing, all the components are added to the table and the total number of components calculated and tracked as the drawing is created.

This feature is currently under development, but I would love to hear from users who find this interesting and to understand how they might use configurable tables and object components.
