Leica Captivate CAD filesPosted by Chief on July 3, 2019 at 6:05 pm
Newest update has the ability to attach dog files to your Leica job. I managed to attach one, but I can??t see it anywhere in the 3d viewer. Anyone else do this that could steer me in the right direction?

A few things to check –
Maybe the coords are not correct?
Can set the units on import as well.
Also there is a tickbox to convert white entities
Have you been able to successfully import it as a DXF?
Bit of a non feature for me. Never had a problem saving as a DXF.
I would never load up a received DWG directly to the logger anyhow.

I haven’t done much other than read the update features paper. What is the benefit of loading a .dwg over a .dxf? Will it read C3D objects like pipe networks or surfaces? If it won’t do that I don’t understand the benefit. You would probably need to be using a CS35 to benefit from the C3D objects anyway because the CS20 doesn’t have the RAM horsepower necessary to process those objects on anything larger than a 1/2 acre pad site.

The IFC file functionality may be able to do that. Not something of great interest to me either. Whenever I have been supplied BIM models like that they have not been on correct coordinates. (for starters…)
