Top Features of MicroSurvey embeddedCAD


Integrated Survey, Design and CAD

(click image for full size)

MicroSurvey embeddedCAD Premium contains all the survey calculations, design, and drafting functionality that we have at MicroSurvey Software Inc. There is no need to load additional modules or buy them. With MicroSurvey embeddedCAD Premium you have a full toolbox. Everything from downloading your data collector to plotting a finished drawing is included.

An integrated program needs the ability to read standard drawing files. With MicroSurvey embeddedCAD all your files are stored in industry standard DWG format. No conversions are necessary. Our Project Manager displays the drawing preview for DWG files so you can see the contents before you open the file.

The program will round trip all custom proxy objects that may have been added to the drawing by non-standard software. No data is lost by opening in MicroSurvey embeddedCAD and re-saving the drawing. Everything is maintained in the DWG file that was originally there.

In order to maintain compatibility with standard AutoCAD, MicroSurvey does not create any custom proxy objects in the DWG file. Every entity that is created by MicroSurvey embeddedCAD can be manipulated by any standard AutoCAD® version up to AutoCAD 2012.

Shape Files, Fonts, Linetypes, Hatch Files All Work Fine

MicroSurvey embeddedCAD can utilize shape files, fonts, linetypes, and hatch files from AutoCAD. This means that if you have a custom shx font file in your AutoCAD installation, you can use it in your MicroSurvey embeddedCAD installation. The fonts will look the same.

MicroSurvey embeddedCAD also reads and writes DXF files in case you need to go to a non-AutoCAD product.
