Export profiles of all sections with X, Y, Z format.

This feature allows you to export in a text file with tab separator all the profiles of the sections of the minor/medium bed and/or of the major bed that are entered as width-elevation, abscissa-elevation, circular, curvert, power, rectangular, or trapezoidal format.

To run the export, you must be in geometry mode and choose "Export profiles of all sections with X, Y, Z format". The software then offers:

  • to choose between sections of minor/medium or major bed,
  • to add comments,
  • to choose a file name for this export.

The file contains three columns separated by tabs:

  • Column 1: longitudinal abscissa of the section (x)
  • Column 2: coordinate of the current point in the profile section (y)
  • Column 3: elevation of the current point (z)

If the comment option has been chosen, then the original format of the section is indicated in this comment, in addition to the longitudinal abscissa of the section.

Soon the 2D positions x,y will be based on the geolocalisation of the nodes and sections (in option), and not only on a linear longitudinal reference as now.
