Many AMT users asked us to support Cadimage Tools by adding Interactive Legends of Visual Favorites for their products. At long last, after many days of work by Mark Horrocks of Cadimage Tools (as well as myself) over a period of months, we now have an add-on for MasterTemplate ready for purchase.
This was a much bigger task than originally anticipated – there are LOTS of Cadimage Tools. Separate Legend groupings were prepared for DoorBuilder, WindowBuilder, CabinetBuilder, Landscaping and Landscaping Extras, Trees of the South Pacific, Accessories, and Rapid Detailer as well as objects from the Design Suite. Special efforts were made to synchronize layers, materials, fill and pen settings to enable a seamless experience for MasterTemplate users.
The Cadimage Legends add-on to MasterTemplate is available for $75 – click this link to purchase.
A special bundle is available when the Cadimage Legends is purchased with a new AMT license for $245, saving $25. You may click here to buy this bundle.
To celebrate, we have arranged to offer a 10% discount on all Cadimage Tools products and upgrades for AMT users. Simply visit the Cadimage Tools website and shop for whatever you wish, then enter the promo code “AMT” (don’t type the quote marks) to receive 10% off your invoice.
Disclosure: Bobrow Consulting Group earns a commission on Cadimage Tools sales that are placed using the AMT promotion code. We believe their products are very useful, and proudly recommend them to all our clients. We thank Campbell Yule of Cadimage Tools for his patience and support.

So… it’s been awhile.
Does this CadImage stuff get added to or referred instead of the AMT stuff? A little help would be great… Thanks RBG
Sorry for the delay in getting full documentation out on the Cadimage Legends. I’m working on it now.
[UPDATE: as of January 20, complete documentation is available and included in the downloaded files.]
In brief, the Cadimage Legends is supplied as a PLN file with the main 3D stuff on one story, and the Rapid Detailer Legend on a separate story at a different scale. The main Cadimage Tools Legends are set up so you can hotlink them alongside the existing Interactive Legends, while the RD Legend is intended to be hotlinked into a Worksheet. These supplement the existing AMT file (or your customized template) rather than replacing anything.
For new AMT users who purchase MasterTemplate with the Cadimage Legends, we supply a version of AMT with the new Cadimage materials already integrated. For existing users who purchase the Cadimage Legends, detailed instructions are available showing how to quickly add these materials to your customized template.
A number of users have asked for clarification on what the Cadimage Legends are, and whether they need to purchase Cadimage Tools in order to use them.
As I hope you are aware of (and appreciate), MasterTemplate contains an extensive set of Interactive Legends of Visual Favorites that give quick access to commonly used elements. You go to the Legends and eye-drop something, then return to your design and draw with the tool settings ready to place a similar element.
We hired Cadimage Tools on a contract basis to develop an extensive set of these Visual Favorites for use inside MasterTemplate.
Here is a screenshot of the main set of Cadimage Legends, which comprise DoorBuilder, WindowBuilder, CabinetBuilder, Design Suite Objects, Landscaping Suite, Landscaping Extras, and Accessories:
Here is a screenshot of the Rapid Detailer Legend (included in the Cadimage Legends), which is stored in an Independent Worksheet:
In order to use the Cadimage Legends, one needs to own some or all of the Cadimage Tools products. The Cadimage Legends were created with the ArchiCAD 13 versions of Cadimage Tools, and require ArchiCAD 13 and ArchiCAD MasterTemplate 13 to work.
