When comparing O-Calc to simplified hand calculations it is sometimes surprising to find that there can be some differences. Let’s look at a very simple example of a dead-end load of 1000 lbs applied 400 inches above the ground guyed by a down guy that is 180 degrees out of phase and with both the ..
O-Calc Pro is equipped with a fully functional monoscopic photogrammetry subsystem that allows for extremely precise measurements to be made from photographs. Unlike the less accurate systems sometimes used by alternative pole loading tools this system uses a precise model of the lens stack on a particular camera model as well as series of retro-reflectors of ..
In O-Calc Pro there exists the concept of a “Bulk Summary Report”. This is a report where a compact bit of information for each of a collection of poles (as determined through the batch report system) is added to a single report page. This is as opposed to the normal report where each pole is ..
It is often the case that there might be two (or more) versions of a report in O-Calc Pro. For example a summary version and a detailed version, or a text only version and a version that includes images or charts (see http://o-calcpro.com/wiki/2015/12/03/adding-a-custom-chart-to-a-report/ ). Rather than implementing such reports in multiple report definitions you can simply ..
When creating a plugin, report, or script in O-Calc Pro it is helpful to be able to store information such as state, history, or keys identifying external data sources directly in the PPLX elements. O-Calc Pro provides a mechanism for this in the form of the Working Data Store (WDS). The WDS is a free form ..
When using the Google Earth plugin from O-Calc Pro you need to set a few of the options in Google Earth Pro to allow opening a pole from Google Earth. To allow a user to click on a link in GEP and open that pole in O-Calc you need to do the following: In Google Earth ..
In a previous posting ( http://o-calcpro.com/wiki/2015/12/02/creating-a-real-report/ ) we saw how to create a simple report. In that case it was the Applied Load report. In this article we are going to extend that report by adding a chart of the heights. O-Calc includes a graphing API that is used to generate all of the graphs that ..
Before starting you should install: Osmose O-Calc® Pro version 5.1 or better Microsoft Excel or other product that can edit and display Excel spreadsheet files version 2010 or better (.xlsx). Overview O-Calc® Pro 5.1 provides preformatted reports in its Report View. It also provides a link to a Custom Reports tool. The Custom Reports tool ..
A report was requested that would show all of the applied loads (source loads) applied to a pole. This excludes reactions to the loads so applied by guying are excluded as are the loads generated by the pole itself (wind load, self weight, load from tilt, etc.). The following video shows in real-time the creation ..
