Topcon Magnet Point Import help
I'm trying to import an old SMI "asc" file into Topcon Magnet 5.0. I get to the point where I select the file on the thumb drive and I have selected 12d ASCII as the file type. Nothing shows up on my thumb drive. When I select "all files" I see my file as 88001.01.asc. I pick it and I import Error file format is incorrect. I can see that Magnet wants a 12d ASCII file and I am working with a asc file. Can I change the extension somewhere along the line or do I need to convert the file some how?
Many thanks in advance
Can you convert that to any other file types?
also updating to 5.2 whould be benifical
How are you! Try renaming the file to a .txt. Also, maybe take the . out of the middle of the filename.
Here is an example of 3 lines from an old SMI asc file
3, 4979.9335633, 5524.3759575, 0.0000000,
4, 5352.5254588, 5669.8932394, 0.0000000,RP
5, 4983.4204811, 5824.0409459, 0.0000000,PT
In Magnet Field I use Topcon Text Custom (*.txt) as a import format
When you select your asc file use the All Files (*.*) Type
The custom text file format delimiter set to Comma
The File style set to Name,N,E,Elev,Codes
Works for me.
