Some times there is a need to rotate things in our drawing so they would be aligned with something else (for example an arrow aligned with some lines so it will indicate some kind of direction). Continue reading
My role at my new job is to create the “as built” designs of the new optical fiber cables that are being placed all over the northern Greece. This includes the collection of information that I have to put on the drawings, the land surveying work on the field and finally the design itself. All the job is being done by me except the surveying fieldwork (land surveying renderings also done by me).
So take a look: Continue reading
Being a site engineer always gets you involved with earthwork calculations. If you have a pc and a total station, things can be done easily and with high precision. The programs I use are AutoCAD Civil 3D (or Anadelta Tessera, I prefer Anadelta because of its better looking outcome), AutoCAD (if not using Civil 3D, for final retouching) and ofcourse Microsoft Excel.

I decided to post my favorite AutoLISP programs that I use extensively hoping that someone will find them useful. The two of them (as you can see in the code that I am providing) are written by me and their coding is very easy to understand and changed/tweaked (if someone has a bit of knowledge about AutoLISP). There are other two without their code provided by their authors but they are great (.vlx extension). Scripts can also be downloaded all together from here. Continue reading
If you do not know how to load LISP scripts in Autocad there are several ways. Continue reading
As I have written already at the info section, I am into photography. Recently I bought a pair of flash triggers, the Yongnuo RF603 II. My camera is a Nikon D60 (entry level before some years). I thought this would be a useful post for some people like me, with an entry level camera and not enough budget to buy hi-level equipment (like Pocket Wizard triggers etc.). Continue reading
Due to economic growth, the number of the cars used has increased in the resent years. This accompanies the degradation of air quality, especially in industrialized countries and urban environments due to traffic congestion . In many areas, the traffic related air pollution is the main reason of air quality degradation. The pollutant concentrations are related directly with the duration of the congestion . The World Health Organization (2010) has set the maximum values of pollutant concentrations but in many measurements, these values are exceeded.
The concept is to build a low-cost, low power consuming device to monitor the quality of air. Continue reading
This is a simple one made with AutoCAD and rendered with Artlantis. I tried to render more scenes with night lights but my PC power is not that great. So I am showing only some pictures from the outside of the building.
