    Default Extracting xyz coordinates from 3d polylines

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi, I'm new to the forum so im sorry if this has been answered many times before.

    I want to extract xyz coordinates from 3d polylines using AutoCAd LT 2012 into excel, as i need the data in a tabled format, I use the polyline coordinates to create cross sections of river beds which I then use to model river flows using HEC-RAS software.

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated

    Many thanks

    Since you are using LT, the AutoLISP or other automation solutions are out of the question.
    One solution will be to use LIST command to print the coordinates of the polylines vertexes; move those with Copy-Paste to Excel and edit them there.
    I don't have access to AutoCAD 2012, so maybe someone else is aware of a better solution.

    Welcome to the forum. You could probably use DATA EXTRACTION to do this.
    I stand corrected, I just tried using DATA EXTRACTION and was unable to do it, sorry.

    Volume and repetition do not validate opinions forged in the absence of thought.
