Exporting Multiple Point Groups

147 Views, 11 Replies

Hi, I have about 50 point groups that the client needs in an ENZ format, is it possible to export them all at once with the name of the point group being the name of the file?

 

if so, the more annoying part of this is that I actually have to make the ENZ file an ENZD file with the D being the name of the file for each point, if both of these things are possible and you can explain it to me in a way I understand you are guaranteed to go to heaven lol

Whenever I have to export multiple point groups I make a new point group and then add the other point groups to it. It's not too painful. Not sure how you're going to handle your 'D' component though.

the client needs them separated by the name of each file so i'm not sure if that's still possible if i combining them all into one point group?

You need to change the 'D' component of each group prior to combining them using whatever method is most efficient for your needs.

is there a way to make the D component to be the name of the file?

correction - the name of the POINT GROUP, not file

Use the Override function within each point group. Granted you would have to do it manually but it wouldn't take too long.

R click on a point group name, select properties, then go to the Override tab, check the raw description box and then enter the point group name, apply. close.  Rinse and repeat for each group.
