Importing Leica .FBK files into MSCAD?

Post by cogopogo » Tue Nov 18, 2014 8:26 pm


Is there a setting for importing a Leica FBK file into MSCAD? This would solely be for retaining the linework collected in the field. Equipment is the Leica TS-15 robotic and using MSCAD2010.

Tried exporting data as a .dxf from the controller as well, but MSCAD crushes when importing this .dxf file.

Are you using Viva? If you are you can import your DBX projects directly into MicroSurvey CAD 2014. No conversion needed - just import it directly including your raw data, points, line work and pictures.

That functionality it is worth the upgrade. My opinion of course!
