Re: Trim Tin

What about if you get the las file instead of the tin and import as a point cloud. Then use the option BIM | Point Cloud | Point Cloud Mesh Thinning

Re: Convert Super Alignment to Super String - Null Points

I am pretty sure you don't need the Null to Height step, I thought you could just type in null as your maximum Z value and it would find it.

Re: Reading a CSV file Macro

I know that you are on the basics of this macro, but once you get that worked out..... When writing macros from files, any files, the easiest thing to do is to simply read the line and then print the line. If you can do that (you can already do that) read the line split it into tokens and print each...

Re: Delete specific attribute tree from model

Have you tried the attribute manipulator?

Set the Attribute to Modify

Rule type Vertex Attribute
Index 0
Attribute Name EXPORT/*

Not sure it works in a PIT situation, but can't see why it wouldn't

Re: KR LS PLOTTING

Wouldn't you do this as an MPS? That would give you the flexibility to have different bits and bobs in the same plot while maintaining the drawing number or changing the drawing number or doing basically whatever you want. MPS doesn't allow you to plot to a model, so you would need to get them setup...

Re: 12d compatibility with Trimble Business Centre

Not sure of the end game here, but the best way to do it from a survey perspective creating Machine Control models... Alignments - 12da (only format that give geometry) Design Strings - dxf (don't use 12da it segments every string and you end of with thousands) Tins - ttm (I find this more reliable ...

Hi Adam, In this example Command "drafting Leader_Vertex_Attributes -style \"Label ATTS\" -text_format \"Owner: <[Owner]>\n[Configuration]>\n<[Size]>mm\"" -style \"Label ATTS\" sets the label style that you are going to use. You can set your styles up under Ca...

Re: Volume to 2 tins + area in increments

Just to add an extra requirement to this, we often have to provide volumes in chainage ranges for mass haul calcs and then surface areas at different slope ranges i.e. Steeper then 1:2 is with Excavator, 1:2-1:4 Dozer, 1:4 and Flatter Grader etc... The volumes are easy enough with the various tools ...

Re: Survey mapfile based on point attributes

The basic tab can only work off string attributes, some of the other tabs can use both string and vertex. If you are processing SDR data there is an option that kinda, sorta, possibly and on occasions works to write the vertex attributes to the string. Anything with Att Key is string and the Vertex ...
