Plot the triangles as 3Dfaces (option in CadTools View/Edit Surface). Use AutoCAD's menu: View, Visual styles, Shaded (or try some of the styles)
CadTools Tips and Tricks / How to shade cut and fill area
« Last post by Bruceebru on June 06, 2017, 08:59:35 PM »
I have done the triangulation of two surfaces, and performed cut(red) and fill(green), but it only colours the polylines, how can I get cad tools to shade the relevant areas to cut and fill? Many thanks in advance  :)

Try using a free gis package. I think qgis has a viewshed/line of sight analysis tool

I've no plans for reversing. Driving a vehicle forward or reversing is the theoretically the same.

Any update on this question?  Would be nice if this could be implemented.

You can achieve same result by a simple trick.

  • Use the command Draw,“Draw from Coordinates”, and type “Text at station/offset from Polyline” to draw any station text at desired station and offset i.e 10,20,30.....offset 1,2,3.... This text should be placed on a separate layer for easy selection. You may also consider using Excel for this purpose, Excel is good for setting up data for pasting to other software as CadTools.
  • Now select all station text by a crossing or pick them one by one in correct order. Use “Export polyline coordinates to Excel” to export all station text insertion points to Excel. Now select all coordinates cells in Excel and select Copy.
  • Return to Draw from coordinates and use the “Polyline vertex” type and clear the grid and place the marker at the top cell in the grid. Right click and select paste to paste all insertion points back to CadTools. Click on Draw to create a polyline from the station text insertion points. Done!

Note! It’s important that all station text is selected in correct order, if using crossing you may need to rotate the view so you can select them in a ascending order. The Draw from Coordinates is a pretty powerful tool combined with Excel and some Copy/Paste.

Does anyone know of a stand alone sightline tool that's available on Bricscad. I'm looking for something that can be used to measure the maximum 2D sightline at set intervals through a defined corridor (roadway). the only tools that I can find are within civil design packages such as Civil 3D.
I work in Temporary Traffic Management in the UK as a designer and am trying to identify a way of reducing the number of works vehicles being struck by other vehicles whilst installing Roadwork's. a very high proportion of these incidents are happening within the approach zone to the works while installing the temporary warning signs. I'm looking for a Tool that will allow designers to easily check the sightlines through a given path and then move the signs accordingly to find the best visibility for each of the stopping points.
does anyone have any ideas?

CadTools General / Re: Cadtools not running (64 bit problem?)

It's Windows UAC that prevents you to run it. Try to uninstall and run the installation as administrator (right click on the installation exe). Then run CadTools and also AutoCAD as administrator.
Running as administrator?

As an option you can use the portable version of CadTools
