Layername based on elevation.

Top  Previous  Next

Some Esri .SHP Shape files are intrinsically 3D, and some are 2D but can be made 3D by using the appropriate field in the accompanying DBF file.

 

If you want to change the layer (and color) in the DXF file according to the elevation of the object then here is the sequence to follow:

 

Dxf-Layer-By-Elevation-Settings

 

You can have from 5 to 25 different layers set according to the elevation.

 

Here is a resulting image:
