GeoTools V15 is compatible with AutoCAD versions 2007-2015 and BricsCAD V14 and V13.
New commands added in GeoTools
GT_SLOPEDISPLAY (GeoTools -> Civil Tools -> Color-coded slope display of TIN faces)
GT_FINDSLOPE (GeoTools -> Civil Tools -> Find slope of a single 3dface or 3dpolyline)
GT_CMDHELP: GeoTools -> More Options -> Specific command help
GT_LASTCMDHELP: GeoTools -> More Options -> Display help for last command
GT_FIXUCS: GeoTools -> Polyline Tools -> Others -> Fix lines / polylines with different UCS
GT_KML2DWG: (GeoTools -> Geographic Tools -> KML2DWG (Google Import))
GT_GEIMPORTIMAGE: (GeoTools -> Geographical Tools -> Google Earth Image Import
(GeoTools -> Build -> Drape a 3D polyline across a set of intersecting linear
objects): Users were confused about what the source objects and target objects meant. I have attempted to remove this confusion by making the messaging clearer. Additionally, it is now possible to specify a 2d polyline as an object to be draped.
GT_BREAKX (GeoTools -> Drawing Cleanup -> Break crossing objects at ends): This command now accepts line objects as input, in addition to polylines.
GT_ROWMAKER: (GeoTools -> Build -> Make Right-of-Way/Pavements/Ramps): The GT_ROWMAKER command is now enabled in BricsCAD. It generates automatic offsets and rights-of-ways. This was not enabled in BricsCAD until now for technical reasons
GT_GENSET: (GeoTools -> Settings): A new general setting called 'Do Not Show User-Interface' has been added. Checking this option causes GeoTools to load without any menus or toolbars
GT_IDXYZ: (GeoTools -> Annotation -> Label points): Quiet a few new enhancements have been made in GT_IDXYZ command
GT_TOOLHIDE (GeoTools -> Settings -> Perform Show/Hide toolbars in all workspaces
GT_TOOLSHOW (GeoTools -> Settings -> Perform Show/Hide toolbars in all workspaces
GT_READGMLFEATURES: (GeoTools -> Export -> Import a single GML feature from file): The GT_READGMLFEATURES command now has an additional option at the beginning which allows you to disable the UNDO log and AUTOSAVE feature. This can reduce disk-swapping and improve improve overall performance while working with very large files.
(GeoTools -> Export -> Extract individual GML features from GML file):
now has an additional option to create individual feature GML files in their own sub-folder. Earlier, all feature-wise extracted files from the master GML would go into one single folder. The ability
to store their in their sub-folders make file management easier.
GT_GENSET: GeoTools -> Settings): The GT_GENSET command has been enhanced. Two new options have been added which will be implemented gradually through the software. The first one is called 'Beep on Error'. This setting allows a beep sound to be generated each time GeoTools encounters an error. The default is 'No Beep' and the function remains disabled unless you explicitly set it on and select a beep sound from one of six different beep tones.
The second new option is 'Enable voice mode for important messages/errors'. Checking this option activates Windows speech tools to speak out the important prompts, messages or error notifications. This tool may be useful for those experiencing difficulties in reading prompts on the command line or for those using the latest version of AutoCAD which makes it very difficult to read command-line prompts anyway.
GeoTools -> Geographic -> Insert GeoTagged photo: There was a problem with the PHOTO-CIRCLE.dwg block supplied with GeoTools. It was a 2013 dwg format and could not be opened in earlier versions of AutoCAD. This has now been fixed, and the DWG is now shipped as a R2000
GT_FLIP (GeoTools -> Polyline Tools -> Direction Control -> Flip (Reverse) direction): There was a bug which caused wrong results if a closed 2d polyline had a non-zero elevation. This has been fixed now.
(GeoTools -> Drawing Cleanup -> Delete Duplicate Objects)
: A bug has been fixed in this command. Blocks with attributes are now correctly handled during duplicate detection.
