Panaji, India – SYCODE has launched TerrainCAD for Bricscad, a terrain modeling plug-in for Bricscad. TerrainCAD for Bricscad can read a set of points from a text file and create point objects in a Bricscad drawing. It can then triangulate these points using a fast and robust Delaunay Triangulation Algorithm to arrive at a superior terrain mesh. The plug-in even triangulates the area between contours and gives the user the freedom to add breaklines in order to control the topology of the resulting terrain mesh.
Another feature of TerrainCAD for Bricscad is its ability to solidify a terrain mesh by giving it thickness. It also has a command to calculate the mass properties of a mesh such as volume and surface area.
