CadTools. free 3D and surface utility for AutoCad (and ZWCAD.
Design your civil work in real 3D with this handy tool! Now with Vehicle Turning Simulations (Vehicle swept path.
CadTools (ToolBox) is developed for Civil Engineers using AutoCAD. There are a number of great software on the market supporting the design process of roads, rails etc. For minor design work CadTools can be very useful, it contains more than 50 commands mostly in real 3D to support your work.
By combining separate commands through the work process you can achieve almost anything you want. When I developed the commands I certainly had some situations in mind but every command can be used in a variety of situations not only in civil work design. With CadTools you can create your own surface models based on objects in the drawing or import triangles from DWG (other civil software). You can create profiles and cross-sections of multiple surfaces, calculate volumes and plot contours. It's easy and fun creating real 3D models with CadTools commands, some of these commands can only be found in software that you have to pay money for. I work as a civil designer at one of Sweden's leading consulting companies. M y main tool for civil design is Bentley InRoads/RailTrack, one of the best software I've seen. Sometimes you need something less complicated so I started developing CadTools while traveling to work by train.
After more than five years and thousands of hours of developing this software now is a powerful tool way beyond my first intentions. H onestly I can't be without it. h ope you will feel the same.
CadTools is an out of process software and supports AutoCAD versions: 2001-201 8 . (vanilla and verticals i.e. Civil 3D). It also supports ZWCAD+ (2014/2015.
Major C ommands in CadTools are listed below. CadTools has a complete helpfile with images of command results.

Drafting Annotate Profiles/Cross sections.
Vehicle Turning Simulation (Swept path analysis) You don't need to be a registered user to use this! It's totally free! Configure vehicles of your own and do analysis in the drawing. Much faster design than using turning templates.

Limitations: CadTools does not work with AutoCadLT . Some features are limited for unregistered users. Windows Vista users! Problems running CadTools? Probably it's Vista's UAC dabbling, try to launch CadTools as an Administrator. Simply find the shortcut for CadTools, right click on it then in the Compatibility tab select the option that say: Run this program as an Administrator. If you are using Bricscad you will find the Vehicle Turning in BricsTurn . The Vehicle Turning is also available as a freeware for Microstation V8. MSTurn.

If you find CadTools useful, why not donate and become a registered user How much should I donate? There is no right answer to th at , the result is always the same no matter how much or little you donate. Ask yourself how useful CadTools is and donate with your heart. Donations are important for me, they are confirmations of real users appreciating the developing of CadTools.
Please note that donation notifications are sent to me from PayPal by email and I manually send you a registration email as soon as possible. Generally I respond at least twice a day. If you haven't recived a responding email in a couple of days, check your spam filter or post a message to me in CadTools forum.
