3d Piping

Postby shamus » Thu Jun 16, 2005 10:11 am

I am going to be starting a job where I am picking up pipes at a compressor station and I was wondering if microsurvey can handle creating a 3D isometric view of the pipes.

Isometric drafting

MSCAD can view and draw in Isometric mode as a CAD engine but we do not have any specific tools in the Surveying side of things to assist you there.

3D Pipes

Postby Glen Cameron » Thu Jun 16, 2005 12:55 pm

The program has nothing like this built in as automated tools but if you are an accomplished 3D CAD draftsman, you can accomplish it using CAD commands. I can't go into details here as this is not a feature covered by support. There are several 3D commands and tools to draw 3D objects that you can explore, if you wish.
