O-training with OCAD
Learn how to make o-technical excercises.
For a course setting project, you need two OCAD files:
- A [Course Setting File]
Like map files it has the extension .ocd, but it has a special internal mark to identify it as a course setting file.
- A [Map File] This is your OCAD map which will be loaded as Background map for the Course Setting Project.
You can also load a raster image (PNG, JPG, ...) as background map. However, not all trainings described on this page will work if you don't have an OCAD Map File.
Now start a New Coure Setting Project.
- Make sure the map scale of your Course Setting file is the same as your Map file
- [Course Setting File] Choose New in the Symbol Menu and create a new Line Symbol.
- - In the Mail Line tab, activate Course setting symbol: Marked route
- - In the Double Line tab, choose the desired width of the corridor (e.g. 4mm) and the border lines.
- Draw your corridor. Each corridor will appear as a Mared Route in the Course Setting Box. Insert the corridors in your course.
- Edit your corridor in a next step.
- - Cut overlapping parts.
- - Insert additional vertices in sharp turns.
- Cover the remaining parts with white
- - Use the White background (Symbol 760) and the Follow existing objects
- - Activate Follow existing objects under Options> OCAD Preferences> Drawin and Editing to enable line following for double lines (hold the Ctrl button).
- - Instead of using White background for covering, first define a new white color (Map>Colors>Add) and then create a new area symbol (Symbol>New>Area Symbol) where you use this color as Fill Color. Like this you can set the Opacity of the white color to e.g. 90%, so you are not completly lost when leaving the corridor.
- [Map File] Select the symbols you want to hide in the Symbol Box and go to Symbol>Hide Object or simply press F4. Save the map and load it in your [Course Setting File]. Like this you can easily create contour maps.
- [Map File] Use the Crop funtion to differ which symbols you want to crop in which parts of your map.
Save the map and load it in your [Course Setting File]. Like this you can easily create multitechnique trainings.
