     Import Points CE 3.1.03.zipDownload

Import Points CE 3.1 is an open source mVBA applet which runs in MicroStation CONNECT Edition. The applet
enables users to import point data from text files– typically comma separated values (.csv), though other
delimiters may be used. Upon execution of the applet’s Place command, the source (point) file’s location data
and accompanying fields are transferred to the active model with user-specified data mappings and graphics.
