Introducing LitioLAB 1.0

Do you need to draw complex shapes in AutoCAD/GStarCAD, such as: trigonometric functions, parabolas, catenaries, airfoils [wing profiles], gear profiles [involute curves], or any other complex shape that can be expressed mathematically?

Or... Do you need to import a series of XLS coordinates points into your drawing, and draw them as a series of POINTs, LINE segments, or 2D or 3D POLYLINEs?

LitioLAB 1.0 is an advanced, complex-shape, mathematical drawing tool for AutoCAD and GStarCAD, that helps you draw complex shapes (either 2D curves, 3D curves or 3D surfaces), that are not available as standard commands within AutoCAD or GStarCAD.

[Download will be available SOON!]

Give your CAD system full more power and not be limited within the standard drawing commands like: LINE, RECTANGLE, POLYLINE, CIRCLE, ARC or (in newer versions) HELIX!

There are full more possibilities waiting for you with LitioLAB. With some basic Calculus knowledge you can join our community of users who expand the limits of their CAD systems to a completely new level.

An engineering drafting problem
In engineering and architectural drawing and drafting it often happens, that you need to reproduce a shape, a path, a trajectory or any other curve, that follows an easy (or not) mathematical function or formula. Unfortunately, there are no tools to do that in AutoCAD. Even the task of transferring XLS-calculated coordinates into AutoCAD can be cumbersome.

Math is present everywhere in engineering and architecture
In engineering we find lots of non-straight or non-circular machine elements like cranks, all kinds of springs, cams and levers, streamers in heat exchangers, corrugated sheet metal, tank bottoms, etc. The same happens in architecture with construction elements like beams, columns, girders, etc.

Reasons can be stress relief, material optimization, space availability, or even esthetics.

Building arches, ammunition and missile warheads, Projectile motion [Oblique throw], Simple harmonic motion, Fourier series, space orbits, Guilloche patterns, harmonograph figures, mathematic roses, Rosetta orbits, Roulette curves, Tusi couples, filigrees, spirals, hypotrochoids and epitrochoids, and Lissajous curves are some more examples.

Further examples are also catenary curves, gear profiles, helical augers, cross sections of plane wings or of ship hulls, etc. All they follow mathematical principles and formulas. Actually, any physics or engineering phenomenon can be expressed mathematically.

Another possible [and obvious] use is... Function Analysis in Calculus.

Drawing aids: real world vs. CAD-system world
In the real world there are different drawing aids (in addition to rules, compasses and protractors) as curved rules (French curves), flexible rules, all sort of templates, etc. In the same way, in your CAD system you would expect to have tools to draw spirals, sinusoid curves, parables, or any mathematical shape, regardless of its complexity.

You would also like to have a tool to transfer a set of XLS-calculated 2D or 3D coordinates into AutoCAD, to draw a POLYLINE in few seconds and with just some few clicks.

LitioLAB features and capabilities
  • 2D curves (as functions of x or an angle, or parametric curves)
  • 3D curves (as functions of x and y, or parametric 3D curves)
  • 3D surfaces (as functions of x and y, or parametric 3D surfaces)
  • Spirograph: hypotrochoids and epitrochoids
  • Excel to AutoCAD (export 2D and 3D coordinate points [e.g., calculated in MS Excel] into AutoCAD as a polyline or as a set of points)
