Conversion Rules

By conversion, we mean to translate the information from one structure to another one. The conversion rule defines the source information of a given category should become the target features of a given category.

Simply said: A polyline in a DWG drawing, placed on a layer named GuardRail, should become a GuardRail feature type in the Quadri model.

When importing to the Quadri Model, the information first is added to format-near features. The conversion rule set is used to translate the content of the file (now as format-near features) to the final target Quadri Models feature types.


The conversion rules are very important for getting as much information into your model as possible. Read the table underneath for terminology used when defining conversion rules.
