Generating engineering drawings from a given data set (like an Excel sheet) is the dream of every engineer engaged in drawing such drawings. As a trial I set out to code in VBA and tried to generated Siteplans, X/Section, L/Sections and some other drawings from a given data set in Excel.
The drawings are in a specified scale and the standards are upto CAD drawings with precisions upto 6 digit decimal place. And the most important consideration is the speed and precision. Generating cross sectional drawing at 30m interval for a 15000m long road took hardly 120 seconds at 1:100m scale and on a A3 size paper.
The drawings can be exported to DES, DXF or any other vector type for further processing in Corel Technical, AutoCad or any other CAD/CAM software. Though the applet/addon is far from complete, it is very usable and so far I’ve generated C/S for more than 220 roads ranging from 1.8 Km to 27 Km length for some clients.

I am interested in further developing this applet and port it to CorelCAD, AutoCAD and I am planning the following features:
Interested developers, please contact me. [For co-development only please] As soon as it is stable and finished, We are going to open source the codes.
Business Solution is happy to announce that Imphal River Survey project has been bagged by us. We are organizing for the field works and looking for bargain equipments. We need SONAR based underwater scanners, LIDAR/LLaser based measuring tools. And data and data on Imphal Valley and the places where Imphal/Manipur River passes through.
Look for updates.
