Title: Cross-sections from the excel input.
Post by: rajendrakarki007 on December 11, 2013, 07:04:03 AM
Dear Lars,
I am regularly using your software and indeed it a great boon for me in my work, many thanks for this wonderful job, from here  in Nepal.

I want to do another work from software, making cross-sections of road without having contour (as CadTools looks for- as much as I know) : inputting x,y coordinates from excel file and area with volume of those x-sections of road. I know that there is command which can compute area and volume of closed polylines, but is it possible to draw those x-sections of road without calculating contour.

Actually what I want to do is, I want to make the bill of contractor using your tool (app). For this, re-surveying the whole sections of road with Total station/theodolite is not practical. There is original plan of road in hand that do not match exactly in all sections. I have surveyed the sections of road with the help of level machine and now I want to calculate the area and volume of the sections with your tool help, in this part I am in loss. Pls. help!!!


Thank you very much for your anticipated help..

Dear Lars,
Thank you very much for your quick reply, the software indicated you seems to the exactly fitting my purpose but it is only for purchase there is no any demo version, is there any version free to try?

Again many thanks for the help.
