Converting various elements to one elevationHow can elements created on various Z depths be moved onto one single elevation, without manually moving them?
Product: MicroStation JArea: Import/Export
The easiest way to accomplish this is by converting the file to 2D then back to 3D :1) Convert the file to 2D by choosing File>Export>2D. Have Source set to Design File, View set to the view window number which represents a Top view, Reference Files set as needed, and the Preserve Z Range option toggled off.2) Open the newly created 2D file to confirm all elements have converted correctly.3) Choose File>Export>3D. Have the Source set to Design File, View set to Top, Z Depth Options set to Fixed and a value entered representing the required elevation for all elements, and Reference Files again set as needed.4) The end result will be a 3D file with all elements on the same Z elevation
Note : "Top" may be replaced by another appropriate orthogonalview if the "elevation" data is in the X or Y direction
