MicroSurvey CAD

Welcome to the MicroSurvey CAD feedback and ideas forum. This forum is for you to use to offer us feedback about features you would like added or improved.

You have 25 votes that can be used, a minimum of one vote is needed per feature request. You can also use your votes towards existing features that other users have requested.

After a feature has been implemented, you will get your votes back to apply to new or other existing features.

How can we improve MicroSurvey CAD, inCAD, or embeddedCAD?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Need an option to underline MText and DText through the properties window.

    For MSCAD 2016 it would be nice to be able to mass select different entities of text and add an underline to them.

  4. spreadsheet format to enter traverse like sdr

    traverses are being calculated as closed loops, they are entered one closed loop follow by another. radiation shots can be entered later.
    sdr traverse spreadsheet is very handy.

  5. ipn labels with layer control

    the ipn labels are not layer controlled.when setting points on different layers, and turning on the ipn's, (ipn, ipd & ipe), it would be nice to see only the ipn labels for the points that are thawed rather than all points in the drawing file

  6. dimension lines

    It would be nice to control the length of the dimension lines by percentage. this would save having to trim them later.

  8. Set ups Shown in Point Cloud from Static Scans

    I think a great enhancement to the point cloud functionality would be to have the ability to see the setup position by showing a tripod at the true HI. This would facilitate the ease of locating yourself in the cloud and determine if there are any issues with gaps in the data set. Also link it to the camera/image for viewing. I have completed some scans with the Leica MS50 and can see this would be most helpful.

  9. Remove limits on point number from "points on grid" feature.

    The limit is far too small for the type of surveys done with UAV's. I want to set it to find the points and come back in the morning and have it done. At present I need to do it in blocks forcing me to sit and manage the whole process instead of setting it and walking away. I would like to be able to do 5km square area at a 2m grid. I appreciate it will take a while (the 2015 version would get it done in a couple of days)
    Alternately if that cant be done, when setting…

  10. Multi-point Offset Command

    eliminate the question "Do you want (B)earings or (L)eft/Right Display information?" and make it standard left/right display

  11. Dual monitor support.

    Allow users to be able to drag drawing tabs to adjoining monitors such that multiple drawings can be displayed on different screens from the same instance of Microsurvey.

  12. Draw a line tangent to 2 curves

    If I have 2 circles or arcs, I cannot draw a single segment that is tangent to both. The old DOS based CAD could do this, but I have been waiting for this feature in MSCAD. If this feature is available, it has eluded me for over a decade.

  13. Tables Work Like an Excel Table

    When inserting tables, have them work like and excel spreadsheet. When different tables are created for points have the table come in as a table, not as an exploded table.

  15. When CSF & convergence are turned off in ACE, don't include the columns in copy and paste functionality.

    If CSF and convergence are turned off and not displayed in the active coordinate editor, don't include those columns in copy and paste functionality.

  17. Mapper Print image

    Mapper Print image

    Mapper is a new program that lets you load a image.
    We are surveying a golf course. We have image of the new design of the golf holes have laid out on the ground. The want to see are survey and how it looks over the image. We need to PRINT image and survey. There is no point to having Mapper if you can't print it.

  20. Add Wildcard For Better Point Descriptions

    We have about 1500 Public Land Survey corners in our county. The corners are marked with a variety of monument types, and each corner has a unique description. The following are examples:
    N1/4 10 T28R21 – CIM (cast iron monument)
    NE10 T28-R21 – STONE
    MC#12 WIT - ½” IP
    I would like to place all three corners on the same layer with a different symbol for each of the three monument types; CIM, STONE, and ½” IP. Of course they’ll all have different descriptions.
    Seems like a simple and practical idea but I don’t see how it’s possible with AutoMap…
