US: Topcon Positioning Group has released a new Topcon eXchange software solution add-on for AutoCAD Civil 3D civil engineering design software. The purpose of the software is to save time by converting AutoCAD Civil 3D design data into files compatible with Topcon 3D construction solutions as well as the MAGNET software system.
“Topcon eXchange enables construction site model designers and CAD experts to remain comfortable within their Autodesk software environments. Once design data is ready to be sent to an active project site, 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,” said Jason Hallett, Vice President of global product management.
