Anyone know where I can find (purchase) the RBTool macro? Used it years ago and would like to reinstall now. Thanks!

Since Evan's passing I don't think Cheap Tricks Ware is available any longer. It's a shame as there were quite a few GREAT resources that were available.

RBTools was by People Software, not CheapTricksWare, although the latter may have carried it.
Two possible phone numbers

541 317 0294

Yes, Nick .. you are correct that Evan included RBTools in Cheap Tricks Ware but People Software (Erik Zetterberg) was the author.

Erik's current phone number per his website is 877-933-3929.

I've emailed Erik to let him know RBTools came up in the forum but have not received a response yet. RBTools seems to be Acad only now (and, I believe, can be run on BricsCAD as well as other IntelliCAD derivatives).

Just for grins-n-giggles, I loaded up my V3.4 (pre-Cheap Tricks Ware listing) in V22 and it works fine. A real testament to both Dcad's ability to maintain legacy macro use along with all of the new features we ask for !
