Notable enhancements to LISCAD V12.2 include:

  • Create Polygon by Inside Mouse Click
    Create a polygon with a single mouse click and supercharge subdivision allotment creation.

  • Examine 3D Offset commands
    Calculations in 3D world are now even easier. This feature allows users to examine 3D Offsets to a Reference Line, Line or Plane.

  • Import SEE Cross Sections
    The new feature allows import of cross section sets from other LISCAD projects to easily view and compare cross sections between different projects.

  • Leica DBX Field Transfer and Data Conversions
    A single device option for Leica devices, with a new Leica DBX device option replacement for Leica System 1200, Viva and Nova devices.
