April 1, 2005


General CADD Products Inc. released General CADD Pro Version 3.1.12. This computer-aided drafting and design software features a user-friendly two-letter command structure, complete Windows functionality, a powerful Macro programming language, 32-bit accuracy and compatibility with important CADD file formats. Version 3.1.12 includes four new specific commands to assist in surveyors' tasks, including R/L angle traverses, bearing traverses, side shots, radial stakeouts, setout, line labels, fore bearings and distances, and backsight. Either degrees or gradians/gons and U.S. quadrant or azimuth settings may be used. These setting commands are available through both prompt line input and a Windows dialog. Importing, tracing and scaling of Geo-Tiff images is also supported. A new Surveyor's Corner section has been added online to the General CADD Support forum to assist in the use, explanation and continued expansion of these specific command additions.
