The CP_IMPEX command
allows point and linear objects to be exported to a variety of
ASCII Text formats or imported from ASCII files. You need to specify
before-hand whether you are exporting or importing linear features or
point features. These two feature types cannot be mixed during an import
or export operation.
A point feature
includes points, blocks, shapes and text. A linear feature includes lines,
polylines and splines. Curve-fitted polylines will be processed with only
their defining control points. In other words, the curve-fit points will
General options section covers parameters like file name / format etc
which are applicable for both import and export operations.

Ignore lines starting with: During Import
operations, a comment character can be specified to enable lines starting
with that character to be ignored. Exporting of data can be done based on
delimited fields or column-wise. Accordingly, you can set a delimiter
character or specify the start column positions in the ‘Column widths’
Import Options: These
settings relate to import of ASCII data into AutoCAD / BricsCAD.
Create point features as: Point features can be created as points, blocks or text objects. The descriptions of incoming point features can be used as layer names, point numbers or stored as block attributes / object data as applicable.
Process geographic coordinates in D-M-S format: A new option has been added in the 'Import' section to recognize and process points as geographic coordinates in the (Degree-Minute-Second (DMS) format).
Multiple description import: makes possible for text files containing additional description data to be imported into the drawing as attributes, object data or plain text. Until now, only one description field was possible via the format descriptor PENZD,.. etc. Now, you can bring in as many and all of the descriptions into the DWG
The CP_MULTEXPORT command allows you to select multiple DWG files and export them in
various formats. The following formats are supported in different versions
of AutoCAD / BricsCAD as listed below :
AutoCAD 2004, 2005,
The Surface Water Modeling System (SMS) is a comprehensive environment for one-, two-, and three-dimensional hydrodynamic modeling. See http://www.ems-i.com for more info on this product. The 2DM file format is used by this software
CADPower provides the CP_3DF2DM command as a tool to quickly export 3dfaces from AutoCAD / BricsCAD into the SMS 2DM file, which can then be imported into SMS.
The CP_IMPORT2DM command is used to import an Surface Water Modeling System (SMS) 2DM file into AutoCAD / BricsCAD and create 3dfaces out of them.
