(This functionality is available with the Profiles and Design module)
(Not available in LISCAD Lite)

Defines the parameters by which the cross sections are to be output to either LISCAD CAD, AutoCAD DXF or MicroStation DGN formats.

On selecting the CAD Output menu command from the Profiles task in the cross section view, the Cross Section CAD Output dialog appears.

This dialog acts as a guide as to the various options that are available and that may need to be set in order to output to CAD.

Note that coloured cut and fill end areas will be exported to the CAD file if they are displayed in the SEE cross section window.
