Can AutoCAD LT 2009 export points as an ASCII or text file retaining the XYZ attributes? If so how do you do it? Edited by: montanorugebregt on May 6, 2009 5:15 PM

Only if each of those points was a block: are they?

thank you so much for the reply.
The points are not blocks. How can I make them a block for each point?
Could you tell me the steps I need to follow just for one point, how to create a block, then how to export it.
Thank you

it's not that quick.

 

You create a block using BLOCK command, with an
ATTRIBUTE: content is a POINT of course. All three items are explained in
Help.

 

You INSERT the block at every location you have a
point.

 

ATTEXT is the command you can use to start setting
up your spreadsheet "text" file. Also explained in Help. It requires some setup.
Use the OBJECTS selection option.

So if I understand this correctly ... I can go to cusotmize user interface select geometry x,y,and z points, click on each point, and see each X, Y, and Z point but cannot export that information out to a file for multiple selections? In LT of course.
