ViaCAD and Putting Greens

Monday, February 15th, 2010

I had an interesting question from a customer last week.  The customer designs putting greens using 12×12 interlocking tiles.  They wanted to know if ViaCAD could tabulate the full or partial areas of tiles trimmed to a outline.

Below is a movie showing how you could use ViaCAD Pro to accomplish the task.  The primary tools used in the demo include:

–Split Surface to Curve

–Area attributes with Bill of Materials
