AllyCAD Educational Industry Standard

 
 

The first of a series of educational text books is hitting the book shelf shortly. The Book entitled: CAD for Engineering Graphics and Design published by Guidelines Education Publishers is written by Pieter de Waal and looks at three software packages as industry standards in education.

AllyCAD is covered extensively in this book which focuses on everything from 3-D components in the new Engineering Graphics and Design curriculum to multiple layouts and co-operative drawings.

 

 

Product News

 
 
THE SURVEY TOOLKIT IN AllyCAD

The Survey Toolkit in AllyCAD allows the surveyor to create diagrams and plans, and allows survey points to be imported, exported, added and connected. It contains various templates for survey diagrams which include the Surveyor General Diagram and the General Plan diagrams with title block, figure block, area table and template grid lines

for any scale. The toolkit also has a feature that generates survey dimensions automatically for the entire plan.

The Survey Diagram can either be drawn manually or by means of a feature that allows the user to setup a diagram template which includes the layout of the margins, tables and necessary text with the coordinates being automatically printed in the required tables.

The program also contains a function that allows the user to set up a template for a General Plan. The General Plan is necessary when the property is subdivided into 10 or more land parcels or if required under any law. It contains the property as well as surrounding erven with distances and bearings between each boundary beacon.
