Does anyone know if (and where) you can download a legal version of the 2011 version of the borehole importer. The Autodesk website has the 2012 version, alas my company is still using 2011. Is it available for download on the Autodesk website and I'm just missing it?
Any help would be appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Install the UKIE Country Kit (found on the C3DDVD, use the installer to add it), the it will be available under the Toolbox->Reports->UK and Ireland Reports
Does anyone know the format that the CSV file needs to be in? I found a PDF online but I don't think it's format is working, I keep getting errors when I try to import the points.
The format in the PDF is as follows:
Borehole Number - X Coord - Y Coord - Start Depth - End Depth - Soil Description
Try this link
I tried the link you mentioned above. A lot of good information there, but I'm still getting errors when I try to process my points.
I've attached my CSV file...I was wondering if someone can look at it to see if there are any errors in it. I have tried a variety of things with it to get it to work. Things I have tried are as follows:
- Decimals in coordinates and depths
- No decimals in coordinates and depths
- Semicolons instead of commas
- Variations on the amount of commas (and semicolons)
- Data referenced my existing ground to the drawing
- Promoted the data reference of the EG to the drawing.
- Derive the elevations from the surface
- Don't derive elevations.
- Import all labels
- Import just "Borehole ID" label
There are probably a few other things I've tried...but every single time I get an error in the Event Viewer. Unfortunately it says nothing more than "File has errors, not processed"
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!
I just inserted a blank column for Z and it worked
I'm realy glad that some Autodesk fans are developing this realy usefull tool even if it's until now only destinated to some regions !
but I'm still struggle with some aspects of the tool behavior :
I get errors if...
_I let a column header line in the csv
_I use the standard excel CSV output which produce semicolon delimited files with coma separated decimals in our country
_I let some empty soil type lines (with no z values)
_I use accentuated characters
and even after i purge all those little things I'm still getting errors and ie did not get any points for the "limons"(=sand&clay) layer out of the included csv ! maybe you know why ?
there's also an other problem :
Points descriptions are not the borehole ID but the material name...
that's fine to build the point groups.... but now... how should we find out from which borehole comes one over 500 listed points ?
the ID should better come into the point name or as full description, no ?
What's realy strange is that I got a point group named "boreholes" which has the bore ID as its descriptions (and has the EG level and is matching its points per their number) + a gravel point group which contains the points with the "gravel" description (and has the good Levels and is stangely matching to a repeating "gravel" property) + other well done groups AND an EMPTY point group (called "limons") even if the points whith the decription "limons" were well imported with the other points and the group is matching the "limons" description (repeatidly) !?!
do you have some hints on how to correct those little odds ?
is it possible to dig a bit into the way the utility import the data to get better results ?
Looking at the csv provided you should have the depths in centimetres not metres - not in front of C3D now - and the csv must be as the attached link - http://fromthegroundup.typepad.com/from_the_ground
