Exporting Polygons from a Polygon Topology
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

To export polygons from a polygon topology

  1. In the Tool-based Ribbon Workspace, click Output tabMap Data Transfer panelMap 3D Export.
  2. In the Map Export dialog box, select the topology to export.

    All complete polygons in the selected topology are automatically selected.

  3. Select Group Complex Polygons to group nested polygons into a single, balanced polygon.

    If you do not select the Group Complex Polygons option, AutoCAD Map 3D creates a separate polygon for each centroid.

    To create a single polygon from nested polygons, each nested polygon must have a centroid. For example, if three polygons are nested one within another, and the middle polygon does not have a centroid, AutoCAD Map 3D creates separate polygons for the inner polygon and the outer polygon.

  4. Set any other export options.
