Powered by IntelliCAD 8.1a - MicroSurvey CAD 2016 is built on the latest IntelliCAD engine.

IntelliCAD 8.1 is a major release that supports Windows 10, and includes support for 2016 .dwg file format for both 32-bit and native 64-bit platforms.

It includes attaching, importing and exporting .dgn files, annotation scaling, publishing drawings, printing to .dwf (or .dwfx), drawing revision clouds, drawing helices, and various other new commands such as SETBYLAYER, XPLODE, TXT2MTXT, and AUTOCOMPLETE.

It also now supports multi-core processing when opening and regenerating files, which provides a 1.5 to 3 times performance improvement on multi-core computers.

Point Cloud Engine - MicroSurvey CAD 2016 Ultimate is powered by Leica EpcA (Embedded Point Cloud for Applications), which is the same point cloud engine that powers other Leica applications including Cyclone and CloudWorx.Leica Cyclone is used as the native point cloud database, and point cloud data can be imported from other manufacturers, Lidar systems, or aerial photogrammetry systems.

Point Cloud data is now displayed directly within your CAD model space, and you can snap to the point cloud points using standard CAD tools. Dozens of new point cloud tools are now available for working with your point cloud data.

AutoMAP Library Group Codes - Two new options have been added which can dramatically simplify your AutoMAP Library and make initial configuration much faster and easier. The new Group Codes option lets you use a single AutoMAP Library entry for multiple point descriptions. The new Group Range option lets you use the AutoMAP Library to match points based on their point ID being in a specified range.

Global Mapper Imagery - MicroSurvey CAD 2016 features many improvements to the global mapper command, including performance improvements, support for more units and coordinate systems, and bug fixes. Instantly access high-resolution 30cm orthorectified aerial imagery from the Hexagon Imagery Program (HxIP). (Note: a HxIP demo or subscription account is required.)

Imagery is now printable via the PRINT command so it can be included in plotted records, and for improved performance the automatic regeneration of imagery from online sources can be disabled and the imagery can be regenerated manually.
