Command Description

The String Conformance Report command is for reporting as-built strings against a design string such as Kerb, barrier, drainage, and walls.  Options for summary display and an option to visualize output in plan-view prior to creating report.


At the top of the command pane there is the ability to load and save a tolerance setting file. Once you have populated the command with the appropriate tolerances and setting for a report you can save it in a file that can be reloaded in the future.
