AutoCAD / MicroStation VBA Customization

AutoCAD and MicroStation can be customized using several programming languages. One of these is VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) and it is very powerful and versatile. TruckleSoft specializes in AutoCAD/MicroStation customization but also offers a development service for other VBA applications.

What are some of the key benefits? Each business has it's own way of using AutoCAD/MicroStation and it's own type of products that it generates for clients. Therefore, the benefits of automated tasks are unique to each business and can become clear after a review of how data is managed through the life cycle in AutoCAD/MicroStation.

Just a few of them are detailed below. However the power made available with VBA cannot be given justice here. Can your working practices be reviewed? Is there any possibility that you could implement some customized procedures to simplify your working method statements, improve product quality and reduce work time scales? Then TruckleSoft can help!

Improved AutoCAD user experience.
For example, dedicated menus.

Improved drawing quality.

For example, you can tidy up drawings quickly and to a consistant quality by implementing various routines. The routine shown here was developed to automatically "crank" the verticals for a cross-section and tidy up the text.


Custom dialogues.


These complement new program functionality and allow you to alter how a given routine will function.

Automate repetitive procedures.


Drawing multiple profile cross sections.


Inserting slope symbols at specified intervals.


Generate spot levels on topo maps.
