While browsing an old hard drive the other day I found some projects I worked on in the past using CAiCE and it got me thinking "Can we import CAiCE data directly into Civil 3D?" Well, yes we can! To import such data the CAiCE Translator Extension will need to be installed.
Once installed, the extension will be located in your Toolspace >> Toolbox as shown below.
Its quite simple to use. For example, I chose to 'Import CAice Project (*.PT4)' and the import wizard will allow you to pick and choose what data you wish to import.
Points and Survey Chains - Options
DTM - Options
Geometry Chain - Options
Profiles - Options
After defining all the options, click 'Import' and Presto! Your data is now ready to use in Civil 3D!
