Following is a list with brief description of MDL tools from :
TSSCLCAL.MATSS CelL CAlL utility
An application designed to place text string calls for any cells contained within a fence (active or
reference file) at the current cell origin based on an ASCII file parameter table. Alternately,
operator has the option to place cells containing any valid MS elements. A typical application of
the later is placement of cell with Manhole Rim, Invert elevation edit fields to be filled by
TSSFNDPT.MATSS FiND PoinT
An application designed to facilitate the location of survey points in a DGN file. The program
will locate and window (zoom) in on the specified point number in the current active view or any
open view, as specified by user. This program operates on any text string within the DGN file and
may be used to find any text occurrence or multiple occurrences of the specified text string.
TSSIMPRT.MATSS plan, profile & xsection IMPoRT utility
A program designed to import line-string elements into the design file from an ASCII input file
(user generated or alternately TSSPRFL generated). This program works with conjunction with
TSSPRFL and is used mostly for generating (importing) design file (P&P) profile elements such
as profiles for North & South ROW, existing curb lines, existing ditches' flowline, centerline of
TSSLINWK.MATSS planimetric survey LINeWorK connector
An application designed to expedite line-work generation (connect-da-dot). Survey points with
common feature descriptor are automatically or interactivelly connected based on a user defined
ASCII file parameter table that lists the feature name and the relevant drawing symbology
settings. The user has the option of either using field shot sequence or forcing an over-ride in the
X or Y direction. Features may be connected in 2-D or 3-D file format with the 3-D providing
the capability to export linear elements for profile generation purposes.
TSSPRFL.MATSS PRoFiLe generator
An application designed to extract 3-D linear elements (Curb Lines, CL Road, etc..) based on a
user selected baseline alignment for the purpose of generating profile elements in a Plan & Profile
TSSRCLCL.MATSS Radial CelL CalL
An extension of TSSCLCAL application which is designed to place text-string calls for any cell
contained within a fence (in the active or reference file) at the current cell origin or radial to a
selected alignment element based on an ASCII file parameter table. In lieu of text-string, the
operator has the option to place cells containing any valid MS elements.
TSSSTALN.MATSS STation ALigNment
An application designed to automate placement of stationing tickmarks and text along baseline
alignment element. User can select from three pre-defined stationing text formats and two pre-defined text orientations (tangent and perpendicular). Stationing interval is user defined in
addition to text and tickmark symbology and settings.
TSSSTOF.MATSS STation and OFfset
An application designed to calculate the Station and Offset of any point in the design file relative
to a user selectable baseline element. User has the option of placing leadered or non-leadered
Sta., Offset text in the active file.
TSSSURVY.MATSS field SURVeY data import
An application designed for import of survey data into a 2-D or 3-D design file based on survey
ASCII data files. The format of the input is user definable where active symbol (survey shot),
point ID, point elevation and description can be placed with specific symbology. Operator has the
option to import cell as defined in the description field associated with the field shot.
TSSXSUTL.MATSS cross(X) Section UTiLities
An application designed to place utilities (Boxes, Ellipses, Cells) in cross section sheets based on
an ASCII definition file entries that specify the cross section station, utility line's offset from a
baseline, type of utility (Box sewer, Circular pipe sewer, etc...), and size (Span and Rise).
