Import/Export Object Layer Settings

The video below demonstrates the ObLaRead and ObLaWrite commands in the Sincpac-C3D.

These commands show how to dump Object Layer settings to and from XML files.  This is particularly handy when a drawing moves between different departments (such as Survey and Engineering), and different users want different Object Layer settings.

The tasks illustrated in this demonstration require any one of the four modules of the Sincpac-C3D, and may be performed in any version of Civil 3D, 2008 and later.  However, due to limitations in the API, the 2008 and 2009 versions of these commands can only export approximately 2/3 of the Object Layer settings.
