Hi Lars.
How can I create a horizontal exaggeration for the surface profile?

Reduce interval until you are satisfied. Then you can use Cadtools poly line command "weed" to reduce vertices on straight parts of the feature (by settings tolerance). However there is no need to reduce vertices, it is usefully if you are planning to triangulate dense features and want to increase speed.

When the Create Longitudinal Features command is used, smoothed corners are formed. What needs to be done to ensure that the corners remain intact?
CadTools General / Re: Insert a template along a profile alignment
« Last post by Lars on November 20, 2017, 07:48:45 AM »

There is no option for using templates. If you have a alignment (in plan and profile) you easily can create features representing channel bottoms. Use CadTools command "Offset 3Dpolyline" to create left and right edges of the bottom, use "Create Longitudinal Features" to get the line that interfere with the surface. Finally you triangulate these four lines as breaklines and save it as a surface file. When creating cross sections add that surface.

If you don't have a 3D alignment read in the helpfile how to create a 3D alignment from a line in plan and a line in a profile, "Create 3D alignment"

If you get unwanted triangles you can join the outermost lines to a perimeter and use it to delete triangles outside the perimeter, Look in the helpfile "Delete triangles with centroid outside polygon"

CadTools General / Insert a template along a profile alignment
« Last post by hatzigia on November 18, 2017, 10:34:07 AM »
Hello Lars,

I am trying to construct a river channel along a profile alignment and I wonder if there is an easy way to insert a template (like a block of a typical cross section) along the alignment to produce a new terrain with the constructed channel.

I am cutting all the XS along the alignment and manually adding the channel template at each XS in the desired elevation. Also manually adjusting the cut and fill at each XS. After that, I measure the surfaces (cut/fill) in every XS and send the results to Excel.

Is there another option  to do that kind of work?

Thanx in advance

Probably one of the mscomct2's dependency files missing.

Check this:

Hi Lars

Thanks. I did find mscomct2.ocx, mscomctl.ocx,  msflxgrd.ocx and msvbvm60.dll and they are in the program files/Cadtools/windows/system32 folder.

Try to search your computer for the file MSCOMCT2.OCX, if you find it copy it to CadTools folder. If you don't find it try to install again it should be included in the installation.
The file MSCOMCT2.OCX is a Microstation system file (ActiveX) containing graphic controls for Windows forms (Common Controls).

Hi Lars

I managed to - as an administrator, install CadTools, open Autocad and run the Cadtools exe file.
Unfortunately I now get the following message:-

Runtime error 339
Component @mscomct2.ocx or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid.

I have noticed that this file and mscomctl.ocx,  msflxgrd.ocx and msvbvm60.dll are in the Cadtools/windows/system32 folder if that means anything.

I do hope you can solve this problem as I use Cadtools a great deal.
Best regards
