How to Convert SDR Files to DXF Files Using Sokkia Link

If you are using a Sokkia total station for surveying, you may need to convert the data files from the device to a more common format, such as DXF, for further processing or analysis. In this article, we will show you how to use a software called Sokkia Link to convert SDR files to DXF files easily and quickly.

What are SDR and DXF files?

SDR files are the native data format of Sokkia total stations. They contain the coordinates, codes, and attributes of the points measured by the device. SDR files can be transferred from the total station to a computer using a USB drive or a cable.

DXF files are a standard format for exchanging CAD data. They can store 2D or 3D drawings, including points, lines, curves, surfaces, and solids. DXF files can be opened by various software, such as AutoCAD, QGIS, ArcGIS, and SketchUp.

Why convert SDR files to DXF files?

Converting SDR files to DXF files can have several benefits, such as:

  • You can view and edit the survey data in a graphical way using CAD software.

  • You can import the survey data into other software or platforms for further analysis or visualization.

  • You can share the survey data with other people or organizations who may not have access to Sokkia Link or SDR files.

How to convert SDR files to DXF files using Sokkia Link?

Sokkia Link is a software that allows you to communicate with Sokkia total stations and manage the data files. You can download it from the official website of Sokkia. To convert SDR files to DXF files using Sokkia Link, follow these steps:

  • Connect your total station to your computer using a USB drive or a cable.

  • Open Sokkia Link and click on the "File" menu. Select "Import" and then "From Total Station".

  • Select the model and port of your total station and click "OK".

  • Select the SDR file that you want to convert and click "Open". The file will be imported into Sokkia Link.

  • Click on the "File" menu again and select "Export". Choose "DXF" as the output format.

  • Select the destination folder and name for the DXF file and click "Save". The file will be exported as a DXF file.

You can now open the DXF file with any software that supports it and view or edit the survey data as you wish.
