Trimble Business Center (TBC) v5.30 Features New CAD Command Line, Other Enhancements

Trimble Business Center (TBC) v5.30 was released this week featuring a new CAD Command Line, point feature extraction enhancements, new surface tools and updated road and tunnel workflows. Feature highlights include:

  • CAD Command Line – The new Command Line enables users to run dozens of CAD commands by simply entering command aliases, keyboard shortcuts, and values (with occasional picking in graphic views).
  • Surfaces – Two new commands for surface tools include 1) Flatten Surface, allowing automatic removal of outlier vertices from a surface, resulting in a flatter surface; and, 2) Create Surface Intersection Line, allowing automatic creation of a linestring at the intersection of two surfaces.
  • Tunnel Workflows – Corridor workflows are enhanced in Tunnel View to display road corridors, create/edit tunnel offsets and rotation directly, and display multiple tunnel designs.
  • Road Workflows – Export Trimble Access road strings in LandXML format, flag side slope catch lines for display in Trimble Access, and create a Knoll Cul-de-Sac.
  • Mobile Mapping –  Enhance target picking for registration, calibrate manual camera, and  calibrate automatic laser scanner.
