Ezigrade 3.0.10

Added in an option to export a Trimble Multiplane txt file. Get your UTM / State Plane data into multiplane.

We can also export the file using design heights. This is a hack to allow us to get Ezigrade or Civil data into agform3d which supports a multiplane import. And hence allows us to get data to Topcon tractor for grading.

Ezigrade 3.05

Have expanded drain routines to optionally include extra banks around edge of drain. This allows us to create contour banks, head ditch's etc.
For example the above screen shot shows how this can be used to create a contour bank.

Ezigrade 3.0.2

Drain manipulation improved when more than one drain is in the job.

Ezigrade now has the ability to match edges of "variable grade" sections. You need to make sure that
  • All common edges are defined as hinge lines. (Left click on the section edge and then under File menu you will see the option to toggle on the hinge option)
  • Use the option to add in extra points along section lines. Ezigrade needs points along the line that are in both sections to match edges.
  • At present all sections need to be variable grade that are joined together. (or all planar) This will be relaxed in a future release
Please remember that the drain(/bank) routines also allow you to achieve similar outcomes.

Have added in a new waterflow option. Click on the waterflow icon or the "View" -> "Calculate Drainage Lines". It asks for the number of seed points. These are random start points of how the water will flow along the surface. The flow is a low speed simulation under low waterflow conditions.

Ezigrade now has a bump map option. A bump map is where a cartographer shades one side of a ridge in a dark hue while shading the other side in a lighter hue. This gives the illusion of 3D and helps to visualize the surface. In the surface colors dialog you will see the extra "bump map" checkbox and a scaling value. Simply tick the box.

We have found a bug with "ponding" display and this now also supports a bump map.

The south west quarter has been graded - hence the lack of ponding.

Couple of bug fix's.

(1) Some grading parameters not being set unless we run the grading routine. This can cause the software to crash.

(2) Volumes of drains.
