CAD drafting Import from LandXML 6 Command line: NG_IMPORT_LANDXML

The command allows you to import a surface from the LandXML format. As a result, a Mesh object will be created in a drawing

LandXML is a popular format for exchanging data with other applications. In nanoCAD it is possible to import and export surface data using LandXML version 1.2 format.

After running the command, a standard file selection dialog box will open. Choose XML file and click OK. The command options will be displayed on the Properties toolbar:


The command options are specified on the Properties toolbar.


Xml units

Displays the units in which XML file was saved.

Dwg units

Displays the units in which it is required to display objects from XML file. If drawing units are meters, and the Dwg units option is set in meters, then objects from a file will be imported without scaling (1:1).

Geodetic CS

As in the geodetic coordinate systems (as opposed to the generally accepted rectangular Cartesian) the X axis is directed to the north, and the Y axis – to the East, for the correct import of object from XML file, it is required to specify the parameter value – Yes. If you specify No, X and Y coordinates will reverse places during import.

When you import a surface, a “TIN Surface” layer is created.
