will my TSC3 controller snap to line when i have a drawing inserted?
If you mean select the line for staking, yes. You just have to make that layer (or the whole drawing) selectable.
Does anyone knows how to import DXF files into Trimble Access in a TSC3?
Copy the DXF to the user folder in Trimble Data on your TSC3. When opening or creating a Job, link that DXF via Active Map under Properties of Job. The DXF should now be visible on the Map. You can also go straight to Map in an open job and click on Layers at the bottom to Link or Add DXF maps, and control visibility and selectability of individual layers. Very useful for setting out complex projects (and curves).
Thanks Mike for this workaround to import DXF files It would be a great improve to the Access interface to simply add in the JOB/IMPORT a DXF import ?
Actually I like the way it works because you are just linking the DXF "active map" to the Job and you can link and unlink other DXF's and you can switch on and switch off layers for viewing and selection for staking etc, without importing. (The work-around I have here is I have to invert the DXF before sending to the TSC3 because our South African co-ordinate system is South-zero azimuth...... :-) )
Understood Mike thanks with our local clients is that if they dont see the import DXF command in the import menu, they go crazy, so maybe having both methods would help??
