DXF export with pointinformations

Hello
When I export a project as a dxf, only the single point is available in the dxf. Is it possible to export information such as point number, coordinates or date and write it in separate layers?
It would also be cool if a symbol could be given to the point, e.g. an X.
So you can find it better in the CAD or GIS system.
Greetings Andre

Hi Andre,

Yes, you’re right. Currently, you can’t save the description when exporting points in DXF from ReachView 3. However, I’m not sure if DXF as a format allows you to save any fields or descriptions. I’ll do a little research and get back to this thread.

Alternatively, you can use CSV or Shapefile. These formats definitely support descriptions.

As for point symbols, we have no plans to add this now. It requires loading additional symbol libraries in ReachView 3, which can slow down the app. You are also correct that this is often used in desktop GIS or CAD programs. Anyway, we’ll consider your request and think about how we can make the application more convenient for you.

Thank you for the info. For the export I will switch to the csv. Greetings Andre

Hi Andre,

Back to you with some thoughts as I promised :slightly_smiling_face:

We’ve done a little research on the DXF format, and it doesn’t seem possible to add a description at this time. But we will consider other options on how we can implement this in the future.
