  "For last year's words belong to last year's language

    CIVA Tip: Adjust 2D CAD elements

      CIVA 2D CAD editor needs some rules in order to understand the specimens, in particular linking the elements by their extremities. It is sometimes difficult to link segments and circles arcs since the exact coordinates of the connection point are generally unknown. The "Adjust" feature of the 2D CAD editor enables the user to easily connect the elements. Watch the video for more information.
