I was given a file from a contractor and I am not able to import or convert the file. Does anyone have a way to get this into TBC?
A GC3 file is a topcon control file. There is no suitable importer for those in TBC. However topcon office can be used to bring those point into a format that can.
If possible have topcon office installed on your computer. Once installed, use the project tab on the top and import the GC3 file into topcon office. From there you can click on Project again and click control points to see the list that it brought in.
Once you see the points are there you can click project and export control points, this time select export to text file. This will then give you a text file of the GC3 points, which you can do bring into excel to create the CSV.
This has been my workflow, and it's worked well in the past. I hope this helps! If there are any issues, feel free to let me know and I can see if I can get it to work on my end as well.
