Does Anyone Go From Chief To Survey Equipment?

Recommended Posts

I would like to be able to design in chief and send data to a total station software package for field layout and then be able to bring data back into chief. Right now I've looked at Carlson for the software and most others are based on Autocad format also. Is anyone else doing something similar to this today? what we have done to date is design in Chief export a dxf file into the Carlson software, build a point file, then go to site but i haven't been able to get data from point file back to Chief. I may be missing something very simple but i feel like im taking a lot of steps that can be avoided.

thanks

probably best to contact CA's customer service dept or tech support

 

they can probably provide the answers

 

if you are looking for a BIM solution then Chief is sorely lacking in the BIM dept

to the best of my understanding

Aside from Lew's negative comments, his advice is good, call Tech Support for a cogent answer and help.
