    From Lidar data:
    1. Open the Overlay Control Center
    2. Select your Lidar data layer
    3. Right-click and choose "Create Elevation Grid from 3D Vector/Lidar Data"
    4. Near the bottom, put a check next to "Save Triangulation Network (TIN) as Vector Layer"
    5. Click OK
    6. After the grid has been completed, there will also be a TIN layer in the Overlay Control Center
    7. Select the TIN layer
    8. Right-click and choose "EXPORT - Export Selected Layer to New File"

    Could you continue to bullet number 9 as there is no TIN format in the Select Export Format drop-down list...

  • You can save into different formats which is available in the list. but cannot save like *.TIN like in arcgis. because there will be difference in algorithm used for creating TIN in GM and Arcgis for triangulation.
