Mine Surveyors need to produce updated Emergency plans every 3 months and provide these plans to the Mines Department. This may require resizing existing plans which can be time consuming.
The Emergency Plans typically have a text file containing all symbols and text that the Surveyor overlays onto an updated string and stope outline file. For this particular example, the original text file plot with the associated symbols and text was used with A3 emergency plans. This text plot now needs to be used for the A0 Mines Department plans. To save time in reproducing all the plans with the text, we recommend setting up plotting macros.
In this blog, we will work through the steps to rescale plots and append them together.
1. Open up the A0 level plot and the A3 text plot files in Surpac and export each to a dxf file format. File>Export plot file to DXF
