I am trying to import a Polyface Mesh of a road plan to use in Terramodel. Terramodel handles .dwf and .dxf perfectly, but I seem to be having trouble preserving the elvations when importing. The polyface mesh imports in as polylines and without preserving the given elvations. I have used autocad in the past and have acess to Autocad Civil 3d 2012 if need be.
Is there an import tool or command I am missing or unaware of that will allow the import to take place sucessfully?
Unfourtantly I do not have permission to post the file as it contains sensitive information. I know this decreases the possiblity of finding an answer. The file is just a surface of a road created in autocad is their anything else I could provide that would help besides the file? Thanks.
I seem to be getting somewhere with Civil3d. Im going through all the file types that terramodel supports trying to find a compitable export. Right now a .dgn file (MicroStation) has had the best results. I have been able to bring in the topo, but the polyface mesh figure is "not compatible with the current drawing file... If you continue exporting, it will be scaled down to be within the size limits of the new format" selecting differant seed files from the drop down menu has the same results.
We where thinking that an .xml file would be our best bet, but when we select that option the cmd prompt reads that "No LandXML compatible objects found".
