Export/Import Surface Analysis

815 Views, 5 Replies
09-07-2011 03:17 AM

Within the UKIE Country Kit there is a lsp that exports/imports Surface elevation Analysis data (attached lisp file)

 

Can someone advise if this is possible to be modified so that a Slope analysis is exported/imported and how easy/difficult it is to do (or even make the alterations themselves!!!!).

 

I am lisp illiterate hence the request.....

 

Thanks

Nope. As you can see in this image, the only 2 Analysis properties they exposed for programmer's use are Elevation and Watershed.

However, C3D2012 has a new .NET API for Surfaces that DOES allow access to all of the different Analysis types. So after a quick glance, it does appear this can be done for use with C3D 2012+, but not in lisp.

Many thanks for this - I'll just need to wait until it's part of the core product.....I feel a support request coming on.....

Sweet !  This is exactly what I needed.  I have been using the Elevation Banding analysis display mode to create a 'weather map' version of our topo as the site contractor submitted monthly topo data to our jobsite BIM Lab.  It allowed us to show the progression of site development over time in a quick overview.

 

The main frustration I had was the lack of a function to export the elevation banding setup and import it into another surface file.  This lisp routine worked great !  I also like that it writes the schema to a txt file so we can have a master schema and apply it to multiple files.

 

Thanks for posting it.

Here is an example of the weather map files we are creating.
