Laser measuring interface

Recommended Posts

We are looking into purchasing a Leica D5 or D8 laser measuring tool for field measuring building and sites. The D8 will allow info from the laser to go into autocad. Does anyone know how VW would respond to the raw info from the tool?

Usually the conversion is very straightforward via tab-delim export >VW>Survey import.

That being said... it's fairly easy to code out Excel to import the survey datum and then generate

a generic VW template based file using Excel > export Datum-Template text file> VW > new from Datum-Template text file.

Many of the data collectors allow for DWG export, then you can import the DWG file and work from there.

according to my Leica rep "the DISTO transfer program does not work

on Mac devices."

Shame i would hate to have to purchase a PC laptop. It would be perfect if it would work on an iPad!
