Import Wizard

There is a general concept in Quadri for Windows to use the Import Wizard to load external data into the model. This also applies to Geotechnics. However, there is a significant difference compared to other imports when it comes to importing data from GeoSuite Toolbox. You do not need to configure or choose any conversion rules since the data structure for a GeoSuite project is identical to the model in Quadri for Windows!

We will in this section show the procedure for loading GeoSuite data into a Quadri model. Note! There is no need to have GeoSuite Toolbox installed on your computer - only Quadri for Windows is needed!

Prepare the GeoSuite Project

To import geotechnical data from GeoSuite Toolbox directly into the Quadri model the GeoSuite project needs to be prepared.

This requirement means that the coordinate system (CRS) (plane and height systems) must be registered in GeoSuite Toolbox. For this, refer to the documentation for GeoSuite Toolbox.

Having prepared the project can be loaded …

Start the Import Wizard

3. Choose File filtering to “GeoSuite Project (*.dbs;*.dbsx)”:

4. Browse to the folder containing the GeoSuite database (Autograf.dbs)

5. Select the database file Autograf.dbs and press [OK] button.

6. If the GeoSuite settings for CRS as the Novapoint model, the Import Wizard opens. (Otherwise, you will get an option on how to deal with this discrepancy. This is not described in this article.)

7. The Import Wizard contains a number of steps. There are two steps specific to importing GeoSuite projects:

8. When finished press the [OK] button. The data is now processed - it will take some time… After the import process is finished it is possible to preview the result: (See more about Visualization rules)

9. Complete the import by pressing [Finish] in the import tool.
