Really GREAT package! Not just a library of profiles but a real application to use inside AutoCAD. We usd it at a shipyard I worked at several years ago and I have used it ever since. This has a graphical user interface with button selections to get what you need whether it is an end view, top or side view, or a 3D solid. All the dimensions are there including the small radii edges. Once you have made your selection you are given either a standard ACAD solid (not and ARX entity) or a simple 2D drawing. The end views are closed polylines which you can extrude, if needed.

Love this routine! Used to have a similar one with older version of AutoCad but I couldn't get it to work with 2007. Cudo's to the programmer!
