The Result Drawings

The Temporary Drawings that are created during a Detailed Comparison are combined to create result drawings. These result drawings are then presented to the user.

Three result drawings are possible, the Old Drawing, the New Drawing and the Combined Drawing. To create a result drawing CompareDWG performs the following steps:

  • Create a New Drawing.
  • Load the relevant temporary files as xrefs.
  • Apply the markup colours.
  • Bind the xrefs.
  • Zoom extents.

Effectively this means that the temporary files are included in the New Drawing as blocks. The xref mechanism is needed for the colouring.
