Bentley Geopak, first impression

Similar (not much) to what AutoDesk Civil 3D offers, Geopak is a series of Bentley applications for Civil Engineering for making works for surveying, digital terrain models, design of roads and some geotechnical tasks. Although we know, the latter will be catapulted after the acquisition of gINT Software. RunningGeopak Once installed, it is not created […]

gvSIG: 21 CAD tools

A common weakness in specialty GIS programs is its limitation to construct data with the ease that offers CAD-oriented tools. Gradually, the gap is narrowing, although it is questionable whether the GIS has had an improvement in their ability to build or CAD have implemented variants such as Bentley Geospatial Map and AutoCAD Map. gvSIG […]

Connect AutoCAD Google Earth

A common desire to AutoCAD user is connecting to Google Earth, so as to be able to work on the image that toy has, but its accuracy is questionable, every day we find better material but it is useful rather than having nothing. Today we will see at least two alternatives to do so: A. […]

AutoCAD, how the FILEDIA variable acts

On occasions it may happen that when opening a file, it seems that AutoCAD has gone mad and command bar says: Enter name of drawing to open < C: Program Files … The problem: It doesn’t display us the Browser dialog box used to apply the open or save files commands. This is because the […]

I-model, the new Bentley bet

For a moment I had my doubts, if Bentley was talking about a new format to replace the dgnV8, then, I thought it was a kind of compressed format like the kmz with Google Earth kml. Many months ago I did a post, wanting to assume the meaning of the “i” in the V8i, after […]

The software value

The price is in the box, the cost in our motivation, the utility in the use we give it, the value in our appreciation. This is a rather sensitive issue depending on the point of view of the one who is giving his opinion, on what he works at, and on the one who pays […]

How to work on the boundary of two UTM zones

We often face the problem of working within the limits of the UTM zone, having a lot of problems (Spanish Idiom: “ver a palitos” to have a problem of difficult solving) because the coordinates do not work there.

Guys who want to live…

Last night I had the privilege of being invited to a wedding, which has left me an interesting flavor in the palate, in these days that exogenous forecasts (if we give them chance) the most they can offer is the option to choose the tool with which cut our veins. They were a youthful couple, […]

Global Mapper, working with dgn format

Reading the dgn format is a standard in most of GIS or CAD programs, but several of these software (including Manifold GIS and gvSIG) are still reading the V7 format. AutoCAD and ArcGIS have already achieved it. Let’s see how Global Mapper does it: 1. Reading dgn V7 It is interesting that files can be […]

Removing the Ribbon in AutoCAD 2009?

Many users of the old guard did not like much the Ribbon style design of AutoCAD 2009 menus, but not worth much kicking. It’s only a problem of neuronal disorientation, just as when we were working on a different drawing board, where the basic tools were not in the same disorder as ours. It happened […]

Arivte.com is a community with much traffic that comes from Peru but its content has general interest in different civil engineering areas. It’s a little complicated to access issues, because of its hierarchical format with forum and subforums which affects in content’s dispersion; but once registered and when the thread is found, the goal is […]

AutoCAD Education Licensing

We are aware that a student who is pursuing a university degree does not have many facilities for the $ 2,000 that can cost an AutoCAD commercial license. We are also aware that the general tendency has been the illegality. The Professionalism In some environments piracy is still considered a ruse worthy of assessment. But […]

If gvSIG friends fulfilled their promise, next Monday July 27th we will have the 1.9 stable version. So far the test has been great, according to the perceived volume of distribution lists.
