3DPowerTools Transforms AutoCAD 2000
into a Powerful 3D Modeling Package

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA - July 15, 1999 -- 3DPowerTools, Inc. announces
the upcoming release of 3DPowerTools, an AutoCAD 2000 ObjectARX plug-in.
3DPowerTools unleashes the latent capabilities of AutoCAD 2000's new 3D
graphics system with a full suite of editing tools.

Features such as intuitive object manipulation, powerful solid and surface
editing and interactive shaded dragging revolutionize 3D modeling in
AutoCAD.   Real-time shaded feedback, simple three-dimensional point entry
and general productivity tools such as Transparent Orbit make 3D editing
convenient, fast and accurate.

"Historically, people have looked down on AutoCAD as a modeling platform,"
states Jon Tyson, President and co-founder of 3DPowerTools, Inc.   "Now,
with the combination of 3DPowerTools and AutoCAD 2000's new 3D graphics
system, users can perform modeling in an intuitive and interactive fashion,
increasing productivity dramatically."  Tyson continues, "The investment in
3DPowerTools will be repaid in its first few weeks of use."

Beginning September 1999, customers will be able to purchase an electronic
license or a physical copy of the software online or by phone.  A fully
functional, 15 day trial version can be downloaded from the 3DPowerTools
website (www.3dpowertools.com) at that time as well.

3DPowerTools, Inc. was founded in 1999 with the goal of providing
high-quality modeling solutions for AutoCAD.  Jon Tyson, President and
co-founder of 3DPowerTools, Inc., led the development team that implemented
the new 3D graphics system in AutoCAD 2000 and Mechanical Desktop 4.0.
Tyson also implemented a significant portion of the 2D graphics system
introduced with AutoCAD R14.  For more information,
