I'm thinking about the architecture for this new feature:
1, to what level we would like to have this feature integrated? should we fork LibreCAD instead?
2, A new layer should be handling data input/output, generating/modifying LibreCAD entities;
3, Special output templates
4, feel free to discuss on desired features from LibreCAD side, as we can quickly implement new features.
from technical side: try to use as much Qt feature as possible, and feel free to build on top of power geometry libraries: such as CGAL and boost-geometry. For LibreCAD, we have been trying to avoid extra dependency to ease the support for multiple platforms.

you express the situation regarding autoCAD that I believe is true.
I have started writing a survey program for Librecad, but I still have a few months to go.
PLEASE RESPOND if you think I am on the right track.
Also I could use all the help I can get.
The program will plug into librecad and be open source.
if you can program at all we could cooperate.
