    Default .shp file object data to CAD properties

    I am a new Map 3d 2006 user and I would like to know if there is a way to convert
    the elevation object data from a .shp file to the objects properties.
    I am trying to assign elevations to contours which I brought into CAD from .shp
    files.

    Hello aws.89861,

    Yes, this is possible, however there are a few steps...

    1) Import the SHP file into Map, and save the dwg (Dwg A).
    2) Start a new dwg, and attach Dwg A (Map attach, not Xref)
    3) Create a query to bring in the required data, and use the 'Alter Properties feature to read the Object Data, and set the elevation of the objects queried in.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks Warren,

    Now I will need to learn how to build the query. I am not sure if I select property or data
    type but I will try both

    Hello aws.89861,

    Incase you haven't found it yet...
    The query could be a simple 'Location All' query, but the Alter Properties will be based on the Object Data (Data).

    Hope this helps

    Thumbs up Re: .shp file object data to CAD properties

    Thanks again Warren. I learned that I was missing a couple of crucial steps in building the query. 1. I did not have the draw bullet checked and 2. I would set up the query and click on OK instead of ADD when in the alter properties dialog box. I have been successful with this task now.
