Ezigrade 2.0.43

Following update is for grade constrained sections, not planar designs.

When designing furrows that change direction the existing design methodology was leading to slight problems at the section edges. When designing sections individually the edges never match exactly. The smoothing will create a nice interface but for furrow design applications we want finer control.

For this type of application we have added in an option to do the design for all the sections at once. This fix's up section edges but can lead to longer design times.

To run this option use the menu item under   Tools  -  Grade Entire Job (LP)

Problem setting background bitmaps. Was only happening fro long skinny bitmaps.
When running Autoroad, calculating new design heights. Natural surface heights were being picked up.

Ezigrade 2.0.42

Added in routine to convert files in a local system onto UTM based grid system. Find in the Tools - Local To UTM menu item.

Use this when you wish to grade field using LevelGuide system or other UTM based systems.

Ezigrade 2.0.41

When running smoothing, bug with smoothing across section boundaries. We could have the joining link set to disallow smoothing across the boundary but was doing it anyway. Fixed.

Have added in an option when exporting to Google Earth to correct points received from Trimble GPS. The Trimble GPS picks up points in a local coordinate system. However Google Earth uses a global  UTM grid. It often shows up as the field swung around the master bench point.

Tick the box as below. You need to have a master bench defined in the job. A point with a code of "mb".

Ezigrade 2.0.40

Ezigrade - multiplane txt file that uses E,N,S,W etc and was placed West of Greenwich was creating the Longitude of the master bench in the wrong position.
