For example assume you wish to select all the points not in the current surface. Do Points -> Select -> Sect by Triangle. Now click on Points -> Select _> Reverse Current Selection.

Ezigrade 3.0.42

When calculating correction from UTM job to Trimble coordinates. If for example you are working in zone59 but you are using coordinates based on zone58 then correction was failing and the Trimble control block (.gps) was invalid. Now fixed.

Ezigrade 3.0.40

(1) Bug if we had "All Way" grading set in a section and we also had 2 or more "Constrained Grade" sections joined together with hinges. The hinge was being ignored.
(2) When exporting an esri shape file to smart level; we now create a prj file as well. At present this is only supported for UTM. Please let us know if you are using smart level with State Plane coordinates or another system.

We can now specify individual smoothing values for specific sections. You can now right click on a point and delete it. A menu pops up.


Updates for ePlan LandXML. We now have tables for specific XML sections:
  1. Observations

  3. Parcels
  4. Monuments
This allows you to totally define the ePlan XML in a tabular manner. Manual updates coming shortly.

Have added in beta version to create Trimble TMX compatible gps files. From the File -> Export Trimble Machine (.GPS) menu item. It brings up the existing dialog and there is a tick box at the bottom for "TMS Specific File". You can ignore the guidelines for max number of points etc.

We already have one user who has successfully tested this.

If viewing large files in our online viewer; please select the coarse option.

CDS 2.8.33

If we have a job with more than 200,000 points. By default we are not displaying point numbers, codes etc even if asked for. However if you zoom in enough so that 10,000 or less points are displayed then the point number/code etc is displayed.

This makes the software more responsive. Text is overwritten anyway with more than a couple of thousand points displayed.
