Hi!

I've got GS 11 and 3ds max 2010. I want to edit elevation data from GS i 3DS max but i've got a problem with import because all the time i see:

I found http://globalmapperforum.com/forums/vector-data/4720-dxf-problem.html but still is the same massege from max.

//I have track from my gps (Attachment), 02-01-12 0643 Nw-ls.kml and SRTM Worldwide Elevation data from (3-arc-2nd resolutin) to this area.

I know, my english is not good but i need solution.

    Does the DXF file load back into Global Mapper? Have you provided the DXF file to the support for 3DS Max support to see why they think it is a bad DXF file? By 'GS' do you mean Global Mapper?

    Thanks,

    Just read that other thread you pointed at. If you have the last official GM v11 release you might see this problem, but later releases should fix it as well as getting the latest v11 build. I have placed the latest v11 build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper11.zip with the change for you to try. Simply download that file and extract the contents into your existing v11.xx installation folder to give it a try. If you are using the 64-bit v11 version there is a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper11_64bit.zip .

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Let me think... There are two options: I am stupid or i poorly explained what i want.

    Firstly - What i want:
    I want to edit this wireframe
    pixijgj1gi8s_t.jpg
    with x,y,z data in 3ds max.

    Secondly:
    I thought "it has to be easy" - import track from GPS, later download SRTM data and finally export to 3ds max.

    Finally: I don't know how i can do that. Experiments with every single format which is available, i think that is "wrong way".

    greetings from PL ;)



    I will be happy if you help me ;)

    I'm not an expert with 3ds max so I'm not too sure what formats it supports, but I think you want 2 separate exports here, one an elevation export to a 3D DXF Face file or maybe DXF mesh for the terrain surface, then another vector DXF export for the track. You wouldn't likely have them both in the same file.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Step by step:
    I download srtm data
    I've got something like this:
    y1rmlt1gv1vf_t.jpg

    And i choose Export raster and elevation data ->Export DXF 3D face file
    I was exporting with default options
    And than i was importing file...
    And all the time i have only this:
    wrrw2fm2s8ub_t.jpg

    I don't know where is the problem.
    (and Sorry (again) for my bad English but i haven't use it for so long)

    Your projection is likely the issue as your X and Y coordinates will be lat/lon in degrees and your elevations in meters, and 3ds max doesn't know about spatial stuff like that so it can't handle X and Y in different units that Z. Try changing your projection to something like UTM on the Projection tab of the Configuration dialog prior to export so your X, Y, and Z coordinates match, then see if that works.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    I'm pretty sure the same thing applies to AutoCAD.
