AutoCAD® Civil 3D® Survey Fix 2013 & 2014

Hi folks,

A number of you have asked for an updated version of my Survey Fixing utility for Civil 3D®. So due to popular demand, creating an updated version of this tool has become my top priority. I hope to get this out to you very shortly (tomorrow, if possible).

I’d also like to take this opportunity to announce a new project that I have been working on for over a year (woohoo, it’s close enough to being finished that I can mention it!).

It is… … … *drum-roll* …

A new programming language for AutoCAD!

I’ve called it CADBASIC. Its primary design goal from the very beginning has been to create a language that is extremely simple to use.

Because it’s my own proprietary language for AutoCAD®, I have complete control over the syntax of everything, which means if you want a new command or behaviour in the language, I can add it for you, in whatever crazy wacky syntax you like.

Here’s a teaser of the kind of thing I’ve been aiming for:


A basic example of a syntax that achieves more, with less code. Pretty trivial, but it’s only indicative of the type of thing I’m aiming for, and hopefully you’re all now intrigued 🙂

Release date: TBC…
