AutoCAD for TCPs

I use AutoCAD to produce tree constraints plans for BS5837 surveys. I have written a program that will automatically generate tree shadows on any day. It also generates the more general shadow type described in BS 5837:2005. Works for any number of trees, just needs northing, easting and tree height in a data.txt file. Just load and run in AutoCAD.

Giving it away free.

Anyone interested?

Re: AutoCAD for TCPs

That sounds good. Have you seen the latest copy of the bs 2012?

How does the file come, as an email attachment or a link?

Cheers
