2DXY SiteSurvey tools for Sketchup

SketchUp Tutorial

Barry Milliken has developed 2DXY SiteSurvey tools for sketchup which only work with Sketchup 2015. This sketchup extension will help the users to sketch a typical survey for a building site.

All building projects are initially commenced with a site survey and it characterizes the boundaries of one or more plots of land. In order to find out the legal setbacks and coverages that can limit the building design, a perfect survey is necessary.

This extension functions as follow:

  • Sketch one or more land parcels out of a surveyor's field notes or survey drawing.
  • Design any number of parcels in a subdivision.
  • Transform an imported CAD file into a survey drawing containing exact annotation. (SketchUp PRO only).
  • Sketch Surveys dimensioned in meters or feet.

N.B: This extension is compatible with Quadrant Bearings where each bearing angle denotes NE, SE, SW or NW. This is the general practice in North America. Azimuth Bearings (where each angle is computed clockwise from N) are not yet supported.

This sketchup extension is available in sketchup extension warehouse.
