Export a TIN?

Is it possible to export a TIN file so a GIS user can use it with some Carlson software? He's having trouble using .XML's or DEM's.  If I could find where ACAD stores the .TIN file for my surface, I'd just send that to him.  Any ideas?  I'm out of my league here...

 

 

Use the LandXML export, Carlson will be able to read the surface from it.

Civil3d has no external file where the TIN is stored, everything is inside the dwg.  If your GIS user is unable to use xml for some reason then you could extract the triangles from the surface, copy & paste those into an empty drawing and send him that file.

I'm with Terry - I've successfully brought LandXML surfaces from C3D into Carlson before...
