Drawing update

Post by Peter G » Wed Jan 21, 2015 4:10 am


What is the best way of update the drawing, ie DXF lines, but keeping all the points and my measured points. I've got new drawing from architect & engineer which shows a new layout for my pile caps and RC beams. So I need to update the linework but keep my points.
Any help would be grateful.

Maybe a bit late? Did you work this out?

You can hook your data recorder up to PC and open up the directory where the job is stored and drag the required dxf into the Field Genius folder on your data recorder.
If necessary delete old dxf but if of different name you can select the required one in Field Genius once you have that job open.

I assume you have a new dxf from design. If not open their dwg and save as dxf and use that. Edit before saving as required.
