CADTools + Vehicle Turning (Free)

Free AutoCAD and ZWCAD+ tool! Now with Vehicle Turning Simulation (Swept path analysis)

CadTools (ToolBox) is a software developed for Civil Engineers using AutoCAD or ZWCAD.

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.

Vehicle turning software simulates vehicle turning at low speed and determines vehicle tire tracking and swept paths. Its useful in the design of road intersections, parking lots and other vehicular facilities.

10 default types of vehicles are supported. Every vehicletype has its own figuration ruled by a combination of segments, the first segment is the truck, the second is either a trailer or a tow bar and so on. You can easily create your own vehicles by copying a existing vehicle and change parameters. You can use up to 4 segments including the truck, that would give you a Triple trailer and we think that would cover most of the common situations.

    Vehicle Turning Simulation (Swept path analysis)

    • Configure vehicles of your own and do analysis in the drawing. Much faster design than using turning templates.
    • Create surface cross-sections as 2D or 3D. Display crossing reference lines
    • Surface Contours
    • View Surface slope and direction. Easily detect flat areas. Perimeter of areas with userdefined slopes.
    • Create real 3D cut and fill by applying end-conditions to 3Dpolylines. Very simple and powerful step by step process.
    • Create Give Way
    • Create Chevrons
