Import Sets / Planes / Tools

The Import Sets / Planes / Tools option in Import submenu of the File menu allows you to read in planes, sets and tools from any of the following Dips file types:

  • *. dips8 and *. dips7 file ( Dips version 7 or 8 zip file which contains a *. dipsvs file)
  • *. dipsvs file ( Dips view settings file from Dips version 6)
  • *. dwp file ( Dips windows and planes file from Dips version 5)

The *. dipsvs and *. dwp files may contain:

  • User Planes (created with the Add Plane option)
  • Set Windows and Mean Planes (created with the Add Set Window option)
  • Drawing Tools added with the options in the Tools menu (e.g., Lines, Cones, Text , etc).

When a planes / tools file is read back into Dips:

  • Any User Planes in the file will be added to the current document's Stereonet View(s), as if they had been added with the Add Plane option.
  • Any Set Windows in the file will be read in, and new Sets will be created on the current document's Stereonet View(s), as if they had been added with the Add Set Window option (i.e., Mean Planes will be calculated, based on the data in the current document which falls within the window limits).
  • Any drawing Tools in the file will be displayed on the current document's Stereonet View(s).
