One of the bug bears I have with C3D is the poor translation of my KDF from
LDD to C3D. The descriptors go over alright, but the symbol association is
Attached are 2 programmes that I use to remedy this:
mdb_convert.exe will convert a LDD KDF to an interim Random Access File
called stringer.sdb, which I use for other purposes. This file is created in
the c:\ directory, no matter what. I left this as a VB6 standalone so that
it was independent of LDD.
hdf_convert_c3d is the vba programme to read this file, creating a
Description Key Set called STRINGER (which can be easily renamed later). It
creates the Description keys in this SET, and creates a POINT STYLE of the
same name IF a symbol is associated. The point style is given most of the
information of the original LDD KDF of layers, scales, etc.
Feel free to use and modify it, but I would like any any improved versions
sent back so I can learn.
All constructive criticism welcome.
