My friend Ewen (CADbloke) has been beavering away on tvCAD for many years now, polishing it into a successful software venture.
It’s a niche piece of software, here’s the overview from his site:
tvCAD makes cable schedules from your CAD wiring drawings, automatically and quickly and 100% accurately.tvCAD
Very specific audience, very specific problem set, very specific solution.
And it works well – he now has local and international companies as clients using his software every day.
He also has other CAD related tools including CADreplace, an alternative to AutoCAD’s FIND command (it has a free trial if you want to check it out).
This is what we need more of – talented developers, building impactful software that solves real problems.
A welcome anti-dote to the WeWork news that has been capturing my attention lately.
