Read Civilcad V4 ASC File

This option will read a Civilcad ASC file generated by Civilcad V4. It will read all the points including point codes into the job and will preserve the Civilcad point numbers. It will also read the strings and attempt to convert them to ACS strings. Civilcad strings are written to the file as a series of line segments, not as continuous lines. The program reads the string segments, reads the lot centroids and attempts to use the line segments to form each lot around the centroid. It can handle up to 50,000 lot sides. It will also string together any line segments which are joined but which do not form lots. The program will also read text strings.

Enter the name of the Civilcad V4 file to read. These files generally have a .ASC extension.

The program will read in all the points, strings and text into the current job.

Layer Code Translation
This option allows layer names and codes to be converted to different (Customer specified) layer names and codes when inserting into the job.

1. The maximum number of line segments allowed is 50,000.
2. The maximum point number which can be read is 99,999 as Civilcad then inserts an extra digit and pushes all the subsequent columns one character to the right. There is no way for the program to detect this.
3. The program cannot detect or accept alphanumeric point numbers. These points are ignored.
