Introduction;

Vector Cad, or (Vexx) for short, released in fall of 2017, is now Gearotic CAD new drawing platform. It allows users to draw their own vector drawings using lines, beziers or arcs, or can be used to import dxf vector drawings. This new module is Gearotic's base for future growth and has replaced Vector Wizard entirely, however Vector Wizard continues to be available for those interested in kinetic designs by selecting the "CONS" button inside Auggie.  Moving forward, the new Vexx offer ways of modifying gears in Gearotics project screen for STL updating or toolpathing. Our attempt is to make an easy to draw platform for any graphic needs you may have, and simply to be another tool in your toolbox for editing or vector operations.  


  Vexx, selectable from the CAD tools button inside Gearotic, includes various tools such as beziers, snap to intersections,  offsets to any Arc/Line /Beziers , spirals, golden ratios and  the famous florishes. Vexx has no Polylines class, however it is capable of internally dealing with polylines. Vexx often is a solution to shrink large files formats with huge amounts of line segments in it for hi resolutions, one click makes those line segments into beziers, resolution drops but other CAD programs have an easier time to overcome some of the common issues found between various CAD programs out there. Vexx also has the ability to manipulate existing vectors such as polyline tolerances for any import, it can convert polylines to arcs or back to lines should it be nessecary? These additional steps were added in Vexx to eliminate many of the problems when importing vectored drawings from various CAD programs.
