In outdoor projects, one frequently encountered problem is that of having to insert a rectangular measuring surface in a road

that runs at an angle. The following method is particularly suitable if you are working with CAD plans or background images.





To add a new measuring surface, go to “Insert/Measuring object/ General road“. You make your entry with three clicks of the mouse.

























1-2 defines the length of the measuring surface and the longitudinal direction of the road.

2-3 defines the width of the road.

The grid is aligned to the longitudinal axis.




This measuring surface can naturally be used for other things apart from roads.
