Create Terrains and other related objects (3D Points, Contours, etc.) from 3D data or from Elevation services

The Spatial Manager™ for GstarCAD Terrain wizard allows to the GstarCAD users create Terrains and other related objects (3D Points, Contours, etc.) from 3D data (Points, Meshes, etc.) or from online Elevation services

Customize Contours (2D or 3D, parametric Labeling, etc.), choose advanced options in the 3D creation processes, etc.

3D Points

Use Points or Blocks selected in the drawing or built from Elevation service providers in any selected area. You can also use already generated terrain as source 3D geometrie

2D or 3D Contours

Create minor and major Contours, label Contour altitudes, separate in different Layers and different color models. Optional attached Data Tables will include Contour elevation values and types

3D Terrains

3D models generation using 3D Meshes or other CAD/BIM objects from the selected 3D objects

Automatic image projection and fitting of any Background Map (preset or user-configured) on one or more Terrains in their actual location
