Hi All,

In ProgeEARTH is there a way of designing using strings eg. road centreline as a master string, and then to export this data in the form of a GENIO file?

Up to now I have only exported points eg a list of P,E,N,Z,D which is my entire model. I have been asked to produce GENIO files with reference strings which may be easier for construction.

Also, is is possible for ProgeEARTH to produce a cross section report for an alignment I have cut sections on?

Any info would be much appreciated.

hi craigoz,

Currently progeEARTH does not have a way to export to a "Genio" file. This looks like a file used by LISCAD (surveying and engineering software).

They offer a way to import certain objects from AutoCAD: ... utoCAD.htm

The same program may work the same on a ProgeCAD drawing.

progeEARTH does offer a LandXML export, but only for points and DTM surfaces.

progeEARTH currently does not offer a way to export cross sections. (All of our alignments are just polylines in the drawing)

Thanks for the reply, no worries.

I've been creating profiles and cross sections quite effectively and was just hoping to be able to produce the information (offset, level, etc) in a text form other than in the tables created on the drawings.

On another topic you may be able to help:

can ProgeEARTH create a DTM from a 3d .dxf ?

are there any tutorials using the Dproad tools?

Thanks for your help.
