New Features Revealed in Carlson Survey 2014 Embedded AutoCAD

Software provides upgrades such as an enhanced 3D viewer window.

Newly released Carlson Survey 2014 Embedded AutoCAD comes with the 2013 AutoCAD OEM engine built in. In its embedded AutoCAD version, Carlson Survey gives users the ability to directly read and write the latest AutoCAD DWG-drawing file format.

The software also provides upgrades such as added support for geodetic angles, distances and areas in its core survey commands and an enhanced 3D viewer carlson_survey_inbodywindow, which provides faster zoom, pan and rotate for larger models. The enhancement also enables view pivot around current view as opposed to just overall model center.

Features of 2014 Carlson Survey Embedded AutoCAD include:

  • New pipe special coding in Field-to-Finish that creates pipe polylines with dimension labels and option to draw 3D pipes.
  • New special code “PHOTO” in Field-to-Finish for specifying an image to attach to a point symbol.
  • Point lists put in by number that can now retain their user-specified order in the Point Group Manager.
  • New command to find the intersection perpendicular from a point to another point and angle.

All versions of Carlson Survey are designed for use for land surveying, providing a full tool kit for surveyors with everything from network least squares to surface modeling. Users get the ability to work seamlessly between the office and the field and they can establish company-wide design styles to ease and speed their work.

Along with Carlson Survey Embedded AutoCAD for 2014, Carlson Software is also releasing Carlson Takeoff R7, its project-estimating and modeling software solution for site and heavy highway contractors, which also features industry-specific improvements.
