Vertical Curves

Can you please add in a command to allow us to calculate vertical curves without having to do anything fancy? I can do it with my calculator but it would be nice if you could add it into this program and give a printout report of all the information.

And please add the abillity to label them, in fact any point along a design profile. Unsymetrical?

Thank you both for the valuable input and your suggestions have been added to the wish list for future development.

An interesting note on the side, the ability to calculate vertical curve information without having to have a road actually designed, was originally included in our old DOS based program back in the early 90's. We will revisit this and see what can be done in the future for MSCAD.

Vertical Curves

Is there any way yet to draw a simple vertical curve (parabolic curve) in MSCADD 2005, (or with an add-in routine of some sort?) in simple profile design?
Without getting into AutoRoute?
If not, hope to see it in MSCAD 2008!
Thx

I would also like to see vertical curve calculations in MSCAD. I haven't had a chance to try MSCAD 2008. Are there vertical curve calcs in the 2008 release? If not I sure would like to see it soon. We are still using DOS programs to calculate vertical curves. I sure would like to step out of that era. Please help!

I'm working on a new signature.

Unfortunately this was not added to the lasterst version of MicroSurvey CAD. It is still on the wish list for the development team to explore for the future. Unfortunately, not everything can be added, that is asked for, for each new version.
