Site Model from a ACad DXF DTM

Recommended Posts

I have an AutoCAD file of a DTM, with 3D polylines, in a DXF format. I would like to import it into VectorWorks and generate a 3D Site Mode. Is this possible? If so what is the process?

Import the DXF. Select the 3D polygons. (optional step: Use the "Filter 3D polygons" command to simplify your polygons.) Make sure all your polys are selected and in their proper 3D relationship, then choose "Create Site Model" from the AEC:Terrain submenu.
