Change "Mode" to Slope" (in the Mode Menu on main form)
You will see two toolbars, the second is what you should use.

  • Check the radiobutton below the Slope% input box. This indicates that you want to annotate the slope between two points.
  • Make sure the button with Z doesn't have a red cross, if so click it once make your pick target elevation of point.
  • Press the fourth button from left (Arrow and letter A)
  • Select first point
  • Select last point
  • Select annotation point

In CadTools Setting, Slope Mode Tab you find some useful setting when using Slope Mode. Show history is very useful to check picked values and slopes.

For more information read the helpfile.

CadTools General / Slope arrow and percent
« Last post by vagk_18 on January 15, 2023, 06:15:54 PM »
Lars Hi.
I would like to ask you if it is possible to plot in a dwg a line with an arrow and a number (in percent) by selecting 2 points with different elevations (Scipping to draw a 3d polyline)?
For example, if I insert measured points in Autocad and I want to show slopes between some points how can I do it faster?
Thank you in advance.

There is a update available (Build 757) containing support for ZWCAD 2023. However I've not tested it on a installed ZWCAD 2023, but it should work.

CadTools General / Re: CadTools programming background

Hi, and thanks for positive feedback

I started developing CadTools 2005 to get some tools that was missing in AutoCAD. My decision then was to use VB6 since it was easy and familiar to me. The code communicate with the running CAD systems object model (COM). It is pretty much like using VBA in BricsCAD.

Using COM can be very slow and you are limited in interacting with the user. If you are planning on coding I think you should go for .Net (Probably C#).

I think you may find sample code in many forums (booth BricsCAD and AutoCAD).

This tool is great. Thx for bringing it to public.
Is there some background info on how it is programmed?
I would like to make some smal Bricscad tool like CadTool for fun. So some info how this tool is made would be cool.
