GaliciaCAD, many free resources

GaliciaCAD is a site that gathers a good amount of useful material for engineering, topography and architecture. Most of the existing resources are free or free to use, although some require membership, with an annual membership of 20 Euros that includes a CD with 8,000 blocks. In case of being for partners, the link to download the tool is always offered from an external link.


In this post we summarize, as an example, a collection of tools available for surveying (13)

Top Site To make digital terrain models
Terragen To render photorealistic scenarios
Grid2CAD Convert grid-type terrain models to dwg file
DXFacil It creates dxf files from txt and vice versa, it also does other pirouettes
AgreementsVert Excel template to create vertical agreements
TopUtil Application for stake out
GeoPerfiles To generate altimetric profiles from a txt file, being able to choose the horizontal or vertical scaling factor
Top Coordinates Tool of Luis Miguel Tapiz Eguiluz To convert coordinates
Vials To calculate sequential stations in an alignment, include lines and curves
Citimap A rather primitive tool for making maps
  Some are mentioned that we have already reviewed in this blog, as HeyWhatsThat, Nasa World Wind, Virtual Earth,

Some routines have the disadvantage that they are for old versions of AutoCAD, but it does not hurt to keep an eye on them.

There are also tools for other purposes, such as:

  • AutoCAD (29)
  • Engineering Calculation (54)
  • Design (15)
  • Electricity (1)
  • Utilities 3D (29)
  • Miscellaneous utilities (15)

In addition, GaliciaCAD has other types of resources, such as:

  • 2D Blocks 
  • 3D Objects
  • Manuals and books
  • Textures and materials
  • Images

Portada_10000_2Anyway, I recommend this website to be among your favorites, with the exception of some broken links or a forum full of spam, its content is worth snooping. They can even subscribe to receive news in the mail or buy the membership with all the benefits included.
