TCI was founded more than 25 years ago when the founder Tom Inloes began working as a CAD draftsman for a large engineering firm (David Evans & Assoc.) working on a large Fiber Optic Cable project with AT&T. Our first product the Parametric Editing Tools (PET) was introduced in 1989 and when reviewed by Civil Engineering News was touted as PET could be AutoCAD’s best friend. TCI became a member of the Autodesk Developer Network in 1991 and in 2013 became a Solution Partner with BricsCAD. Over the years, our product line has expanded and has been continually maintained to work with the latest version of AutoCAD – and now BricsCAD.
We have focused on Automated Mapping since day one because the promise of Automated Mapping is the ability to create map products that meet high standards with high efficiency. When an automated mapping process is created to change some characteristic of a map or group of maps, the results can be the accomplishment of thousands of drafting operations with a single pick of the mouse. Furthermore, when automated mapping techniques are employed, you can be assured that 100% of the desired changes have been made.
