The Import command allows you to integrate into your current file any of the following:
Importing CAD-created backgrounds and 3D models can be vital to your ability to perform complex lighting analysis for many lighting applications. Without a drawing reference to work from, applications such as outdoor site lighting can become quite difficult to perform in detail. Obtaining and importing 3D models as surfaces in AGi32 can save you many hours of design time replicating the model from scratch in AGi32. By integrating a previously created 3D model into AGi32, you only need to add luminaire and calculation entities to complete your lighting design analysis.
The ability to import previously saved AGi32 files can be used to merge entire job files or, more often, to import frequently used drawing entities, such as title blocks or the luminaire definitions from an existing file.
Important: Importing a file into AGi32 merges it with the current file, if any.
* Tip: Instead of using the Import CAD File command and selecting the file, you may simply choose to drag-and-drop a CAD (.DWG, .DXF) or LaiDex (.LAI) file into the Model Mode working area of AGi32.
