Import 3D dwg from leica X6 to Archicad

Puloman
Participant

Hi!
I have just started working with a Leica X6 with P2P function with 3D. The Leica software can export DWG, and DXF files in 3D. If I view them in Autodesks DWG veiwer on their website, I get a 3d representation of all the points and surface but when I'm import them to archicad I see only view XY surface without Z. I only see a flat view.

Can anyone point me in the right direction where to start looking to solve this problem?
Thanks!

You'll have to merge the file using File → File Special → Merge and check the "Import Model Space content as GDL object" option or open the dwg file as a GDL object. By merging it's easier to control the location of the imported file. See https://community.graphisoft.com/t5/Collaboration-with-other/How-to-Open-and-Save-3D-DWG-or-3DS-File...
