Getting a dwg fro Pix4DSurvey

Hi. I have a client that is wanting vector files for buildings heights for a project that I have created in Pix4Dsurvey. I can export as dxf but height information is not included.
Is there a workaround? I have ArcGIS pro so would it work exporting as a .shp and then using that to create a .dwg? They want to use it to do a planning application survey so need accurate height information.
Need some help here people - thanks.

Hi @david3

Thank you for your message.
Could you please provide more information about what you are looking for?
Are you interested in the z-value of the highest vertex? Or are you interested in the height of the building (difference in z-value between the highest and lowest point)?

cheers.

Z-value of highest vertex - is that included as part of the dxf.
Did it not work before because I hadn’t checked “terrain” in the layer?

Also if I want the lowest point, say on a roof elevation, does it need to be a separate polyline, as the polyline itself only has the highest point coded to it?

Thanks

Hi David,

thank you for the image.

If you select a polyline (or polygon) the minimum and the maximum elevation values are displayed in the property window. By selecting the vertices individually, you could get the individual z-values. You can find this information is in the .dxf too.

Thanks.

I’m glad this helped.

In addition, the “terrain” flag that you mentioned in your second post, has no influence on the z-value.

Cheers
