gis plugin?

Post by AndreasO » Fri May 15, 2015 8:57 am

Cant find a plugin for what I work with. As a surveyor I need other functions.

I can code python and I need to learn ecmascript. Is there any good book about it or pdf?

ECMAScript is the strictly correct name for 'JavaScript' (which is a wrong but more popular name for exactly the same thing). There are plenty of resources available on JavaScript online. Of course QCAD is not a browser, so there are some differences with what most people would expect from a JavaScript environment (mainly that there are no global document or window variables). The language constructs are the same though.

A good starting point for creating new tools is:

I need a plugin with functions like:
calculating slope from point to point
Parallel line with deltaZ
editing xyz of selected objects in a excel like fashion ..

And since qcad is not 3d a way to look at selected points and lines in 3d in a separate window.

thats djust for basic surveyingtasks. Would need terrain modelling and volume calculations to replace my cad at work.. "Topocad"

I have an idea of how to calculate volumes but I dont know the math.

If someone whants to join forces to do this I would be glad !!
