Where is my CONE menu? (CONE v9 or v10)

The CONE pull-down menus must be loaded into either your BricsCAD or AutoCAD program for them to appear at the top of the screen.
If using AutoCAD, you MUST switch to classic workspace – see topic: Where are the pull-down menus in AutoCAD?

At the CAD command prompt type: CUILOAD then press [ENTER] you will now see one of the following dialogs:

AutoCAD CUILOAD dialog
BricsCAD CUILOAD dialog

The dialog displays the loaded customisation groups, below the list of loaded groups, there is an edit box to type a new filename & to the immediate right a button labelled BROWSE or containing three dots. Click the browse button, and a file select dialog appears.

CUILOAD file select dialog

At the bottom of this dialog is a pull-down list labelled “Files of type”, select MNU files, and navigate to the following folder/file:

Cone9UK Standalone

Cone9UK AutoCAD

Cone10UK Standalone
C:\Program Files (x86)\CADaptor Solutions\Cone10UKBC\CONE10UKBC.MNU

Cone10UK AutoCAD
C:\Program Files (x86)\CADaptor Solutions\Cone10UKAC\CONE10UKAC.MNU

Double click the filename, or select it and click the [Open] button,
when returned to the previous Loaded Customisation group dialog, click the [LOAD] button, then close the dialog.

The CONE menu will now appear at the right end of the pull-down menu bar.

What are the PC Hardware requirements for CONE?

CONE will run on a quite basic specification PC.

To get reasonable performance from the CAD program, we recommend:
minimum Intel I7 processor or equivelant,
minimum 6GB RAM, preferably 8GB+ screen resulution 1920 x 1080

Cone11 Standalone requires 1GB of hard disk space,
the AutoCAD version will require 750MB in addition to you AutoCAD installation.

You should use a 64-bit Microsoft Windows operating system
