I want to extract contours with elevation labels from a C3D 2011 surface for use in another 2011 drawing without the surface, as polylines and labels. Is there a way to do this?
You can explode a surface twice to get poly lines at elevations.
I don't know what happens to the labels.
Probably need to re label in LDD.
Just to add my 2 pennies. I think you can go about it without ruining your surface by explode. If you select your surface and go Extract Objects you will be able to get contours as polylines. See image:
Labels you would need to explode. Good luck.
Explode what a violent wat to resolve an issue.......... wait a minutes? mankind has been doing that since the discovery of gun powder
Just gave you my kudos for your last sentence.
There is something exhilarating about using the explode command. I sometimes even make a little explosion sound as I press enter (usually on stressful days lol)
There is some truth to social conditionig.
It would be fun if you could add some type of script to a button that would trigger a windows sound of an explosion
Can you tell it is Friday? Back at office on old computer which works for forum.
Do a SAVEAS to create a copy of your file before expoding or save just before exploding & WBLOCK out contours then quit drawing without saving to preserve model.
Does that Explorer 9 glitch that causes blank posts also cause reply to wrong post in this forum? I've seen this forum do lots of weird things when I try to reply. Will have to check reaction old to new computer. We upgrade to get worse performance why?
