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".
(thinking…)

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.

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

  1. LOT CLOSURE PROGRAM

    ADD BUTTON (PICK BOTH WITH SWAP)
    The Swap button would only used for mistakes instead of more then
    half the picks in a drawing.

    After doing more then 600 closures there must be a way to speed up
    entry.

      • Give Embedded Cad/Microsurvey Cad the option to NOT redraw existing data when importing new data

        When working on a large project, it may take several days to complete firldwork. I draft the data as it comes in the door, and when I synchronize the Field Genius files, the software rewrites ALL the data in the drawing. This is a pain for me, as I have spent considerable time moving text around so it's more clearly visible. Once it gets rewritten, I need to do it again. I have been using a dummy drawing as a workaround to extract specific sets of new coordinates (ascii file)and importing those to avoid this issue, but it's clunky.

        • Combined Scale factor

          MicroSurvey now gives you Combined Scale factor.

          I think we should be definning what points are grid points and what are ground points. The program now treats them as though they are all the same. I think many might be confused.

          • Automate drawing of rectangular manholes

            Drawing manholes in the correct orientation by surveying two corners and noting the right angled dimension would greatly reduce time in the field and in the office

              • When using cogo

                Cogo to set the bearing to that of an existing line doesn't work when there are dashes in the point numbers.

                It works when inverting the numbers, just not when using 2 points to set the bearing.

                  • Free Adjustment

                    Most of the software for adjustment has option for free network adjustment - no constrained. I think that is very useful.

                      • 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.

                            • Enclose Text with object like "tcircle"

                              creating a circle, slot or rectangle around text objects, like the "tcircle" command does in other CAD packages. Or even better create filled objects around text object, like a wipeout, but where you can select any colour for the wipeout.

                              • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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…

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