C3D 2008 - Change AECC_CONTOUR Display?
« on: March 24, 2008, 03:39:53 PM »
Hello,

In C3D 2008, is there a way to change the display of AECC_CONTOUR objects? For example, the elevation label size? I saw C3D has an utility to convert Land Desktop points, but didn't see one to convert AECC_CONTOUR objects.

Thanks.

No Kelie,

The 'programmers' decided to name the command Add Contour Data, to the surface definition only the joke is one can NOT use contour objects. One MUST explode them into polylines and THEN one can add them as contour data. Just the opposite of Land wherein one had to convert polylines into contour objects. Now one must convert ones contours into polylines.

OR the better option would be to place a copy of the original TIN in the C3D project folder and create your surface from that TIN file. Given that one already has the surface or one wouldn't have AEC contour Objects.
Be your Best
