LFM to ReCap

Post by Finbox » Fri Mar 29, 2019 10:12 am

Hi folks,

First time poster here, been lurking for a while.

As part of a larger task, we have to export a selected part of an LFM database into ReCap for further work in AutoCAD later. We have been using 'volume at point' to acquire the section we want, and then we simply used the 'export' tool in server mode, selecting ReCap as the destination file type.

The points export OK but they are no longer in the correct global coordinate system (from the overall LFM database) we require. Something in the export, or volume selection perhaps, places the exported points into an unwanted local coordinate system. So all the points are OK relatively but just in the wrong place.

Anyone have any ideas as to why this may be happening or have any suggestions on how to get the points into ReCap but keep the original coordinate system?

Much appreciated,
