Exporting vertical profile both of the track and terrain

Hi guys, I am trying to work with Bentley PowerCivil for a university project. I need to extract in dwg from my model the vertical profile of the track and the vertical profile of the terrain model. I tried to export in dwg from File -> Export -> DGN,DWG,DXF but I obtain only the x,y view (planimetry) or the 3d model. How can I export to dwg the profiles I need? I didn't find any information on this in the forum.

Thank you very much

  • Try to create and export profiles using native.

  • Hi Andrea

    You may wish to consider exporting to LandXML format. Refer to http://www.landxml.org/

    Find attached sample file which can be open with Notepad
