Sonja von Bloh Import / Export & BIM SHAPE-THIN

Is it possible to import and edit cross-sections created in earlier program versions of SHAPE-THIN in SHAPE-THIN 8?


In SHAPE-THIN 8 can be opened cross-sections created with the following program versions:

  • SHAPE-THIN 5.xx,
  • SHAPE-THIN 6.xx,
  • SHAPE-THIN 7.xx,
  • SHAPE-THIN 7.5x and
  • SHAPE-THIN 8.xx
The cross-sections can be opened from the Project Manager (Figure 1) or via the File Menu → Open (Figure 2).

However, it is not possible to import the cross-sections created in DOS versions SHAPE-THIN 1.xx and SHAPE-THIN 2.xx into the SHAPE-THIN 8.
