This course is a webinar based training that will go through the process on how to convert Topcon .tp3 files. This conversion will help with the use of Accugrade/Trimble rovers and machines.


Topcon to Trimble File Conversion

This course shows the basic steps required to convert data from a Topcon data collector or 3D machine design to Trimble SCS900 or GCS900 compatible format WITHOUT physically re-calibrating (re-localizing). This course is a Webinar.

» Import Topcon files into Topcon Office software

» Types of Topcon files vs Engineer CAD files
• Detail file types to request from engineer
• Explain different types
» Export required data from Topcon software
» Business Center-HCE settings, templates, instructions for importing Topcon data
• Import and Calibrate measured points in BC-HCE
• Convert Topcon line work or Engineer CAD line work into Trimble compatible format

• Convert Topcon surface or triangles into Trimble compatible format

• Export required files to Trimble rover or Grade Control Machine


BC-HCE Basic Training

This course serves as basic training on Business Center- Heavy Construction Edition, which provides an interface for modeling and data management. This course is classroom-based and requires a computer
» BC-HCE Settings
» Types of CAD files
» Importing, Viewing, Basic Editing of Data
» Using 3D View/Surface Slicer
» Exporting to Data Collectors/Machines


BC-HCE Intermediate Training

This course serves as intermediate training on Business Center- Heavy Construction Edition, which provides an interface for modeling and data management. We will build surfaces from topo data and practice developing basic proposed surfaces (pads, ditches, ponds, driveways, etc.). BC-HCE Basic Training is recommended as a pre requisite. This course is classroom-based and requires a computer with BC-HCE

» Importing, Viewing, Basic Editing of Data
» Build original ground surface from collected and imported data
