center coordinates dxf file....easy way to calclulate it?

Post by Claudio Vazquez » Wed Apr 02, 2008 10:51 am

Hi all,

I loaded a dxf file with arcs and circles and couldn’t add center coordinates to database, I tried use “Attach DXF Entity” and didn’t work, (FG didn’t recognize dxf circles) anybody knows a easy way to add it.?

Could be a good idea that MicroSurvey programmers add in next updates a direct way to add center coordinates to database in order to exploit direct dxf stake out FG capability.

Hi there,

This has been requested and we consider it to be a valid feature request. In a future version of FieldGenius we will be working on adding more offset and "snap" features.

Related question - Is it easily possible to get the center coordinate of an arc created using the linework of 3pnt arcs created in FG rather than a dxf import?

Hi Matthew,

Currently the easiest way to do this would be to find out the arc radius length of the 3 PT arc, easiest way is to select it it and look for the radius in the information toolbar.

Once you know the radius, compute the radius point using a distance/distance intersection from the two arc end points.
