I am working on a tutorial dealing with Site Plans. I will probably have it posted this weekend. In particular I will be dealing with how to draw site plans that have multiple connected curves.
Generally when I receive a site plan that I need to replicate in SoftPlan there may or may not be a curve data table. The curve data almost always shows the radius and length of the curve but rarely will it show the Delta angle for the curve. The problem is that SoftPlan does not have any way to draw a curve of a certain length. You can specify the length of the Chord that connects the two ends of the curve but not the length of the curve itself.
I have also created an Excel spreadsheet that will aid in the process. The spreadsheet calculates the Delta for the curve based on the length and radius of the curve. I will be showing how to use this information to accurately draw the curves so they are the correct length.
If anyone has any other site plan problems they would like included in the tutorial let me know.
