How to start
To launch the plug-in use one of the following commands:
Description: displays a window with general information about the application and developer. The general information includes the name of the application and the current version. To apply to the technical support service for help one should specify the application version.
Description: the command is used to create DTM. The user can select layers containing initial entities by which the surface is to be determined. After that, the command determines marks from the selected entities and displays a window allowing to filter the marks received.
The following initial data can be use to create DTM:
- TEXT or MTEXT –the level of the mark is determined by the content of the TEXT and the position of the mark is determined by the point of TEXT insertion.
- BLOCK – to determine the mark and its position, coordinates of the point of the BLOCK reference insertion are used.
- BLOCK with ATTRIBUTE – the program searches for all the references of the specified BLOCK and determines the value of the mark by the content of the selected ATTRIBUTE. The position of the mark is determined by the point of the BLOCK reference insertion.
- POLYLINE – POLYLINE can be specified as the initial entity. In that case, DTM points will be determined at the vertexes of the POLYLINE and the value of the mark will be specified according to the parameter of the “Elevation” POLYLINE.
Description: this command is used to create a profile by means of the “Profile Wizard.” The user specifies a POLYLINE or LINE determining the section line. “Profile Wizard” can be used to select surfaces for determining ground lines, set the view of the profile (scales, reference level etc.) and select the profile table header.
Description: this command is used to draw characteristic point (CP) on the plan. If the CP is located on the section line, it will be transferred to an appropriate place on the profile as a vertical line with a caption (ordinate).
Description: this command is used to draw an ordinate on the profile. The ordinate is drawn at a specified point on the profile, and the values of the predictable and real ground appear in the profile table.
Description: this command allows the user to edit the properties of the drawn entities of the application by means of special dialogue windows.
Description: this command is used to display the window of the application settings. Various graphic properties of drawn entities can be specified there.
Description: this command is used to specify the plan scale which effects the interpretation of distance from AutoCAD units into meters.
