Suspending Updates to PowerCADD/WildTOOLs Content

General Public Service Announcement

Effective today, January 30, 2015, we will no longer be updating existing, or adding new, content to the PowerCADD Guru section of our website. As WildTOOLs is a plug-in/add-on to PowerCADD this decision also applies to the WildTOOLs Guru section of our website. It's been a great 15 year run with caddpower.com (and 25 years with PowerCADD/PowerDraw) and we're disappointed to see it coming to an end.

We certainly would like to continue to provide new information to the PowerCADD community. However, given we can't determine Engineered Software's timeline or direction for PowerCADD, we feel the professional course of action is to inform our visitors as to our current position. If Engineered Software provides an upgrade or update to PowerCADD 9 for Mac OS? Yosemite (and future Apple Mac OS X releases), or shows some other definitive action or communication as to PowerCADD's future, we will certainly revisit our position and announce any changes here on our website.

As a courtesy to our readers we will be leaving the PowerCADD Guru and WildTOOLs Guru content on this site active.

Our CADDcare and Translation services are not affected and will continue to be offered. ColorPortfolio Libraries will also continue to be offered for sale as they work with all versions of PowerCADD up to and including PowerCADD 9.

We will continue to monitor Engineered Software's activity with PowerCADD in the hopes we can once again add new PowerCADD and WildTOOLs content to our website.

Again, thank you for your support.

PowerCADD Guru Content

About PowerCADD Guru Content

If you're looking for a PowerCADD Guru or WildTOOLs Guru you're in the right place Smile Our PowerCADD Guru section contains content on what we consider to be the best 2D design and drafting product available on the Macintosh. What you'll find here isn't available any place else on the web and is based on over two decades of real world design and product use with the Macintosh and PowerCADD. Being part of the Alpha and Beta testing process for this release (and previous ones for almost two decades), also gives us important insights about the product and how new features are integrated into the design and production process.
