New add-on converts Civil 3D design data into files compatible with Topcon 3D construction solutions
Topcon eXchange is a new add-on for AutoCAD Civil 3D, designed to send design data to an active project site. It converts AutoCAD Civil 3D files into those compatible with Topcon 3D construction solutions as well as the MAGNET software system.
“Topcon eXchange simply converts the Civil 3D design information — even complex road designs with defined corridors — into Topcon standard file formats, such as MJF (MAGNET Field job) for land surveying and construction layout, and TP3 (3D Topcon Project File) for machine control systems,” explains Jason Hallett, vice president of global product management.
“For years, the MAGNET system of software solutions has proven that easy and secure connectivity leads to measureable productivity and the new Topcon eXchange add-on is no different,” he adds. “After installation, users are offered the ability to log in to their own private and secure cloud-based company account from within Civil 3D, providing access to all of the project-related data that they have stored in MAGNET Enterprise.”
