Get your school in the Mix Education Guide 2014. has added two major new enhancements to its suite of design and documentation software, including the External Datasource feature, which provides a fast, flexible solution to the creation and maintenance of a central source for product information such as pricing and other data that is linked to Stardraw’s symbols library. The second feature, Synchronize Manufacturers, is a new delivery mechanism for Stardraw’s regular monthly symbols updates.

According to Stardraw CEO David Snipp, “With the recent implementation of SQL Server 2000 across our servers, we have enormously powerful database functionality that has enabled us to deliver database-driven solutions to our customers far more quickly and easily than was previously possible. We now have a central repository in database format of all of the data within Stardraw that we can distribute to customers’ local machines according to parameters defined by them. The strategic implications of such technology are enormous.”

For example, the External Datasource feature creates an Excel spreadsheet that is populated with the manufacturers’ products that are used. This spreadsheet is stored locally on the user’s machine and can be edited to set the chosen attribute values. From then on, each time the user drags a product symbol into a drawing, the attributes from the spreadsheet are imported into that symbol automatically.
