.dwg import

Recommended Posts

How do you import/convert a TIN layer from a drawing file to a VW site model? We want to use Landmark to place symbols on the surface of the TIN/site model. We've tried with no success.

Or, how do you import/convert 3D polylines from a dwg file to a VW site model? The 3D polylines in the dwg file were converted to 2D polylines. Short of hand converting 2D polylines to 3D polylines individually, surely there must be a way to carry the 3D entities (contours) for conversion to a VW site model.

I'm not familiar with TIN, but to get your 3D polys choose the "All 3D" option in the import dialog.

Select all of the polylines, convert to 2d polygons. THis will give you a polygon group. Ungroup the group of polygons and each polyline will now be a polygon. You can then use the convert to 3d contours command to convert the 2d polygons to 3d polygons or 3d loci. You can then generate a site model once the 2d polygons are converted to either 3d polygons or 3d loci and have a z value set.
