CadTools General / Re: improvement
« Last post by Lars on December 26, 2020, 07:31:02 PM »

I'm sorry but CadTools doesn't have any intentions to be a Full Civil Software. You might need a traditional Civil Software for alignments and maybe some Lisp found on Internet.
  • Annotating every vertex? Try to export vertex to Excel, copy and paste back to "Draw from Coordinates" to annotate (Text at Point)
  • Circle area? Export Circle to Excel, Add a column and formula for area based on radius, copy paste into "Draw from Coordinates" for annotating (Text at Point)

Not real profile alignments but 3D profile alignments. Look at "Create 3D alignment". You will find information in the helpfile "Surface/Surface Profile" and "Lines/Create 3D Alignment"
  • First you create a surface and a horisontal 2D or 3D line/Polyline (If in 2D you finally may need to convert it to 3D)
  • Use the "Create Surface Profile" to plot a profile in the drawing.
  • Now draw a profile line (2/3D) in the profile frame. When satisfied convert the line to a 3Dline.
  • In the menu Tools in the Surface Profile Form you'll find "Create 3D alignment" a command to combine plan and profile line to a 3D line.
  • Use that alignment for cross-sections

Dear sir

I will be very thanks full to you, if you can provide following facility in next update.Or Tell me Plz how i will do these with current version.
this is mostly require for autocad work in road, highways, bridge, landscape and utilities Project.

1. Automatic dimensions of Polyline, Line & Arc (for Pline & Line aligned Dimension and for Arc Line arc length
2. Draw points at Intersection of 2 Line or Polyline.
3. Polyline Stationing Text at every vertex during Stationing command.
4. Get text value (Annotate) in Autocad by Cad Tools area of hatch & Circle.
5. Coordinate Text value (Annotate) at every polyline Vertex (x= y=) All at a time.

wating for your good reply.


request at least make a code for 2 or 3 points not all in next version.

thanks sir
CadTools General / Draw vertical alignment, draw round about, intersection

Dear sir

it is possible to draw vertical alignment on surface profile, draw round about+ Intersection on road plan, make horizontal alignment with road offset,
in next version of cad tools.
it will be very beneficial for a cad technician who are working in road and bridge infrastructure project.

Try this:
Use the Articulated Bus type, save a copy of an existing vehicle or create a new.
Try to minimize the WB value (near zero). This will simulate a single truck axle.
Turn off Plot for swept path and envelope and do some testing and measure in the drawing.
Set your towed axle between the dual axles.
Set max angle between segments so there is no contact between truck and trailer
