MicroSurvey CAD 2018

 

Powered by IntelliCAD 8.4

Learn More

MicroSurvey CAD 2018 is built on the latest IntelliCAD engine, IntelliCAD 8.4. (MicroSurvey CAD 2017 was built on IntelliCAD 8.2a.) A key addition is the support of version 2018 .dwg files. Initial support of the latest .dwg file version 2018 does require conversion in MicroSurvey CAD 2018, and native support is expected soon.

IntelliCAD 8.4 is a major release that includes many new features and improvements. IntelliCAD 8.4 boosts performance during screen redraw and while snapping in files with underlays. Running on 4K monitors and switching between monitors with high resolutions is now supported. Create entities with the new Multileader, Quick Leader, and Break Line commands. Add styles using the new Multileader Styles Manager and Multiline Style commands. Select entities using the new Select Similar and Get Selection commands. Explode entities with more precision according to entity type using the new Explode Text and Explode Attributes commands. Add more formatting to text using the in-place Multiline Editor and line spacing, lists, and paragraph justification. Add automatic numbering to text, multiline text, multileaders, or block attributes using the new Auto Number command. Get more information about your drawings using the new Drawing Properties command. Another new feature is found in the updated Customize command which allows users to customize the user interface with less effort and share custom user interface settings easily between files and computers. You can drag-and-drop settings to customize menus, the ribbon, application button, and quick access toolbar, toolbars, keyboard shortcuts, and aliases.

Shapefile Import

Learn More

Import Esri Shapefile data into your drawing, with optional positional and/or attribute filters to control and limit exactly which features to import from often very large data sets.

Import various GIS data formats including Esri Shapefiles (*.shp and others), GPS Exchange Format (*.gpx), Google Earth KML/KMZ (*.kml,*.kmz) and GeoJSON (*.geojson,*.json). Remap the attribute names to your own custom names so data sets from multiple independent sources can be correlated and processed together with single queries. Modify the filters or attribute mappings of any imported data on-the-fly, without having to re-import anything if you want to change the import parameters. Point features (like control monuments or landmarks) can be drawn as simple CAD nodes or imported into your points database, and the Point ID, Description, and/or elevation can be populated by attribute values. Polyline features (like roads or rivers) can be drawn as polylines or imported into your polylines database. For example: rivers, roads, or property lines. Polygon features (like lakes or lots) can be drawn as boundary hatches, with the boundary polyline optionally being imported into your polylines database. Attributes can be viewed for any imported data, or queries can be run for mining specific attribute data from the Shapefiles.

JobXML Import

Learn More

Import Trimble® and Spectra Precision® JobXML data files including point coordinates, GPS coordinates, and total station measurements.

3D Point Labels

Learn More

A new "3D Point Labels" system toggle lets you draw point labels either in 2D at z=0 (default, as previous) or at each point node's 3D elevation. The previous "2D Draw Mode" system toggle was renamed to "2D Point Nodes" to clarify the difference between these two options.

Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, and other cloud storage and synchronization services are now supported.

Open and save your drawings directly in your favourite third-party cloud storage service's folder.

A subscription to a third-party service(s) is required, it is not provided by or through MicroSurvey in any way.

Smart Point Blocks

Learn More

Points can now be drawn, as either a point node and text labels (as in previous versions) or as a point block that combines these elements into one object.

Labels within the point block can be edited (position and rotation) with automatic leaders connecting from the labels back to the point node.

Smart Polylines

Learn More

A new "3D Point Labels" system toggle lets you draw point labels either in 2D at z=0 (default, as previous) or at each point node's 3D elevation. The previous "2D Draw Mode" system toggle was renamed to "2D Point Nodes" to clarify the difference between these two options.

Angular Units

Learn More

Specify an angular unit for each drawing, including Degrees-Minutes-Seconds (as in previous versions), Decimal Degrees, or Gons/Gradians. The specified angular unit setting will be used for all input/output throughout the program.

Attach Imagery (Bing Maps)

Learn More

Instantly download and attach imagery from Bing® Maps as a raster image file.

Specify the area of interest by Point ID, Current View, Lat/Long, or Street Address.

Specify the image type (Aerial, Road or Hybrid), coverage area, and resolution.

Align the imagery to either georeferenced or local point coordinates.

To use this command, please contact MicroSurvey. A license for the Bing Maps module will be provided to interested users at no cost.

MicroSurvey CAD 2016

 

Powered by IntelliCAD 8.1a

Learn More

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

Learn More

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

Learn More

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.

Inverse Points to Alignment

Learn More

With MicroSurvey CAD 2016, you can quickly inverse a list of points to a specified road alignment, including both its horizontal and vertical components. Quickly tabulate the point ID, station, offset, cut/fill, slope distance, and percent grade.

Import Collada Models

Learn More

Import .dae or .kmz models downloaded from the SketchUp 3D Warehouse, an online repository containing millions of 3D symbols. SketchUp and 3D Warehouse are trademarks of Trimble Navigation Limited.

Join 3D Polylines
