SHOWCASE YOUR ALLYCAD DESIGN

In addition to the Engineers, Surveyors and Contractors who rely on AllyCAD's professional strength and ease of use, AllyCAD is also the preferred design tool for a wide range of Architects, Industrial designers, Manufacturers, Furniture Designers, Property Developers and even Air-conditioning companies.

A new AllyCAD design gallery to be launched on the AllyCAD website early next year will present a diverse range of applications and gives you, the designer, a chance to showcase your work. The use of AllyCAD has evolved over the last eighteen years with clients delivering outstanding industrial applications and award winning design concepts.

An interesting product design that came from one of our UK clients showcases an exciting array of clocks. All the mechanisms and cases were designed with the use of AllyCAD and each clock is unique in look and finish. Thank you to Normon Ross from the UK for submitting these designs. click here

If you have a product, industrial design or any other example of an AllyCAD design that you would like to showcase email us with your details and a description of your design for publishing.

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 Diagrams with pre-drawn title blocks as well as the General Plan


diagrams with title block, figure block and 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. The template includes the layout of the margins, tables and necessary text. This function also allows the required coordinates to be automatically printed in the required tables. A Survey Diagram is a formal document that represents the surveyed property and is subject to various constraints as set out in the Survey Regulations.

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. In AllyCAD, you can alter and adjust the templates for Survey Diagrams and General Plans according to specific preferences.
