Exporting Surfaces From the 3D Scene
This guide describes how to export surfaces from a Seequent Central project. To export surfaces, open a revision in the 3D scene. This is where you can select the surfaces you wish to export and the format you wish to use.
The rest of this guide is divided into:
Surfaces can be exported from the 3D scene in the following formats:
- DXF Files (11/12 [AC1009]) (*.dxf)
- GOCAD ASCII Format (*.ts)
- Datamine ASCII Format (*_pt.asc, *_tr.asc)
- Alias Wavefront Object Files (*.obj)
- VULCAN (v7) Files (*.00t)
- Gemcom TRI ASCII Format (*.tri)
- Micromine (*_MMpt.dat, *_MMtr.dat)
- OMF Project Files (*.omf)
To export a surface that is not part of a model, such as the project’s topography or a surface in the Meshes folder, you must first display it in the 3D scene. Once you have done this, click on the surface’s overflow menu () and select Export:
In the window that appears, you can change the name that will be used for the exported surface (A). Then enter the file name (B) and the required format (C):
Click Export. Central will start exporting the surface, saved in a zip file. Once the export is complete, you will be prompted to download the zip file.
To export a surface that is part of a model, such as the output volumes or contact surfaces of a geological model, first display at least one of that model’s surfaces in the 3D scene. Once you have done this, click on the object’s overflow menu () and select Export.
In the window that appears, all of the model’s surfaces are listed:
Tick the box for each surface you wish to export. As with exporting a single surface, you then change the name that will be used for the exported surfaces. Surfaces in the exported file must have unique names. If there is a conflict, a warning will be displayed and you can change one of the names to clear the warning:
Click Export. Central will start exporting the selected surfaces, saved in a zip file. Once the export is complete, you will be prompted to download the zip file.
