- Hurricane does not change any AutoCAD® settings, nor will it "take control" of AutoCAD®. It simply creates an "AutoCAD® compatible batch script".
Hurricane is in use by all types of AutoCAD® users, Architects, Mechanical & Electrical designers, Aerospace, Defence and our free support has been utilized in an MIT research experiment.
Hurricane is AutoCAD® 'Version independent' - You can be sure that Hurricane works with future versions of AutoCAD® (or any other AutoCAD® alternative, such as BricsCAD®) WITHOUT the need to wait for an update to Hurricane.
All of Hurricane's data is stored in Plain Text files, not in clumsy databases, so you can access it in any text editor.
Hurricane is NETWORK or Locally installable (all with the same distribution files), and requires no special setup programs. Just run the setup file and specify any Network directory, and all registered users can run the executable at the same time! They can share all AutoCAD® scripts, with absolutely no local installations required!
