Attached is my 1st successful attempt at completing a complicated drawing totally within TPC.  Not that we could not make drawings in the past, just never could get the look I was seeking.   All of my past surveys have been resolved using TPC, but we had been finalizing in CAD.  Looks like we won’t be utilizing CAD programs any more for boundary mappings.   I estimate a significant cost savings looking forward.
