Hello everyone, welcome to Micromine tutorial. In this article, I am going to show you how to create a new string file in Micromine. String file represents a vector file. You can save line, polyline and polygon objects in a string file in Micromine. If you have point objects, you should save it to a data file.
To create a new string file, go to File | New. A New File window will open up. Type the file name and choose string for the Type. Click OK
Next, we need to create some required fields. A sting file requires the following columns/fields to be exists:
- Easting (X) — Number
- Northing (Y) — Number
- Rl (Z) — Number
- Join — Number or Character
Close the window and the new string file should be ready.
After creating a new string file, I will show you how to digitize polyline to our new string file.
It’s pretty easy right? Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy it. See you on the next tutorial.
