Is there anyway to import map data from autocad into houdini with attributes

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Is there anyway I can import maps from autocad into houdini with the attributes available to me in Autocad. I am using Digimap and the UK's Ordnance survey to try to import building outlines with their respective TOID registration number as well as their BHA "building height attributes" (both absHMax and AbsH2).

I'm aware that you can't import .dwg into houdini and you can use .dxf, however as it states here .dxf "...format only supports polygonal geometry types", which stops any sort of attribute exchange.

I think you can assign attributes via TOPS and a csv spreadsheet which could be useful but currently I have no way of matching up each building with it's attributes.

Mapbox and OSM are not an option as their data sets are useful but largely incomplete.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance.
