OpenRail Designer CONNECT Edition

Export to File

Used to identify requirements for export of Civil TM's to external files.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Terrain > Miscellaneous

With data collection methods underlying Terrain Models (TM) increasing in detail and size the resulting TMs need to be stored and exported in an efficient manner making data transfer possible across a variety of Infrastructure and Mapping workflows. As part of these workflows a common requirement is to store data external from the primary storage for backup or transfer data to other applications (even to older versions of the Bentley Civil applications). Use this command to identify requirements for export of Civil TM's to external files.

The TM can be exported to :

  • GEOPAK (TIN)

  • MX (FIL)

  • LandXML version 1.2

  • InRoads DTM

  • MX Genio

Note: Additional prompts are required when exporting to MX or LandXML formats.

Workflow

  1. Start the command.

  2. Select terrain.

  3. Select output type.

  4. Complete additional prompts for MX or LandXML formats.

  5. In the File Manager, enter the name of the exported file to be created.

  6. Click Save.
