and the final one ...

haven't seen anyone else (but me) posting his presentations... ??? this was supposed to be quite a fun topic, it's not a hydraulic calculation topic   ;D

Dear Mr. Lars,

I went through your Cad tools and had been found very usefull and friendly to use.

Dear Mr. Lars,

I went through the Cad Tools and had been found very usefull and friendly to use.
I found that the Contour need to be much Smooth then it's creating now. I can use almost all camand which you loded, but I always strugle when I use Alignment Profile/3d alignment.

Kindly suggest?

Ashok Jalwal

Hi!

You can smooth contours, read the helpfile, "How to smooth the contour lines" in the surface contours topic.

The profile 3D polyline is straight forward, it only projects a 3D polyline. To get best result you might need to simplify the polyline before profiling it. Use a tolerance setting of 0 while simplifying to remove irrelevant point information.

helllo there ! I uploaded some new presentation stuff on my youtube channel. I used cadtools on three of those presentations to build the passages. it would have been a dream if there was cadtools for microstation so I didn't have to switch beetween microstation and autocad  ;D. but still many thanks to lars for this wonderfull tool - simple yet very productive!

P.S.

all the elements on the last animation were made with cadtools and it actually represents the design stages when using cadtools. I showed this at the end of my presentation for my masters degree.

I've put some new stuff on my youtube channel, a lighting simulation for a passage. I hope you like it.

Afraid I haven't worked in MicroStation for nearly a decade.  My old firm rendered a flythrough of a road proposal back in the mid-90s using multiple 486 processors machines each taking a chunk.  Took 21 hours, but what MS had built in was pretty impressive.  They used EaglePoint to generate the 3D surfaces and then simply offset the centerline to an average drivers' eye level and rendered a flythrough to AVI.  Couldn't have been any simpler.

Day to day CAD though, I'm a two finger command AutoCAD user.  I might have some old static renders of a hospital parking lot if I look hard enough.

Yes, excellent fly-throughs.  Still haven't found my static renders.  They're certainly not here at home, maybe they're at work?  Nothing to compare to your efforts though.

Basically we pulled them together to showoff the 3D byproduct of our process as a marketing tool.  In my past 20 years of civil engineering, I can only think of one client that paid us to do a 3D rendering.  Now it is all the rage for public meetings.

@Lars
Thank you very much! Partly you made this possible because I use cadtools to create the guidlines from whom I create the passages. Basically the "skeleton" of every passage is made with cadtools.

@ eea123
Exactly! Only two of my animations   were requested by the companies that made the designs. All the other were requested by the owner of the project (mostly local authorities) for public meetings or even election campains. And I have more of them that I haven't posted yet...

wow, it's been a long time since I posted on this forum. Glad to see there are so many members and cadtools gained so many users.
well I did  some new 3D work and would like to share it with you.
