    Hi Steve,

    I think the text info is not transferred, but are you able to see the contours as 3D?

    Hi Ondrej,

     

    I am exporting them into 2D and eventually wanting to create a pdf and auto cad file.  The contour lines do export, but the text with the elevations doesn't.  That text is there when I'm in RC, but it doesn't transfer out.  Is there a way or a file format that I can export where the text data remains?

    When you open this file in QGIS, are you able to see the heights? The text is not exported, just lines with the height as parameter.

    nope--same thing--image attached.  Do you have any suggestions?  I just need a simple 2D auto cad file and pdf of the contours with elevation text but I can't figure out how to export that info.  I even considered a screen grab, but the contour lines aren't tight enough on the screen and you have to zoom in too much for them to all show.

    Hi, can you send me your DXF file?

    As I wrote, you are able to export just lines, not the height labels from RealityCapture.

    I downloaded the data and as you can see, the height info is there:

    Unfortunatelly from RealityCapture are exported just contours as lines without its labels.

    If you want to create some PDF export, you can follow these advices: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oyZ0gwLKXY
