Q - question

Export of point- and curve coordinates to Excel.

A - answer You can export the coordinates of selected curves and point objects directly to the table sheet in the running Excel application. This functionality is included in the CADstudio Xls2Curve utility - the complementary command Curve2Xls.

This command exports XY or XYZ coordinates of selected objects in your DWG drawing to the table at the currently selected cell. You can choose between global (world) and local UCS coordinate values. The export format is compatible with the Xls2Curve import function.

See the example of curve export (see the sample XLS file):
