To import Shapefiles with an elevation attribute:
- In a 3D model, create a new Import node.
- In the Feature Parameters pane, set the Elevation to the property that specifies the elevation. If the elevation units in the SHP file differ from those in your DGN apply a conversion factor: [Contours.CONTOUR] * 3.2808333
You can verify that the data was imported to the proper elevation by snapping to the element and reviewing the coordinates in the Message Center.
