Stardraw Design 7 is Launched

Industry-leading software provider is pleased to announce the launch of Stardraw Design 7. Stardraw's all-new system design/documentation tool is available for download from The move follows the initial unveiling of the software at InfoComm 2011 in June which marked the debut of a public beta phase.

The application is's seventh-generation software solution for systems integrators. Drawing on nearly two decades of market experience, and exploiting the latest in software technologies, Stardraw Design 7 offers audio and video system designers/installers unparalleled speed, ease of use and task-orientated functionality in a modular package which will enable integrators to custom configure the software to suit their particular requirements and budget. Users also have access to the industry's largest, highest quality library of manufacturers' products.

Using an entirely new codebase, Stardraw Design 7 generates a project- and product-centric database which is accessible via tried and trusted task-oriented drawing environments such as 'Block Schematics' and 'Rack Layouts' as well as a new, grid-based Products overview and integrated Reporting interface. A key advantage of this approach is that each 'view' is a representation of the central project database, and a change in one view ripples through to all of the others. A multi-tab interface means that all drawings are accessible at the same time, with each drawing on its own tab, while the Project Dashboard gives you a master view of the whole project for quick and easy access to everything. The new Symbols Palette feature shows you the products in your project that are not being used in the current drawing, which helps you keep track of your project and ensures that you haven't overlooked anything when building your racks or documenting system interconnections.

Other new and improved features include compatibility with the latest versions of AutoCAD (R12 — 2010) and Visio as well as a built-in PDF-generator. There is also a new User Defined Product wizard which allows you to create your own custom product records with all associated symbols and data.

A brand new, faster and easier drawing interface is packed with many requested features including grab/pan, wireframe dragging, arrowheads, improved image support, setting of multiple Cable Labels in a single click, and automatic Title Blocks to name but a few, making Stardraw Design 7 a multi-generational leap forward.

"We're very proud of Stardraw Design 7 because without doubt it is our most powerful and streamlined off-the-shelf design/documentation package yet," commented CEO, David Snipp. "The codebase, although new to the product family, isn't new to us. It's in use by over 30,000 users of our OEM applications which means we've been able to implement some very sophisticated embellishments to a rock-solid and proven core. The feedback from the beta test community and those now using the release version has been very gratifying — Stardraw Design 7 should be on every integrators wish list!"
