PTM requires using files similar to the ADCIRC file format. Thus the original model needs to be converted to the ADCIRC model before proceeding with PTM modeling.
  1. Select the Data | Switch Current Model menu command.
  2. In the Select Current Model dialog, switch to ADCIRC.
2. Export project files.
1. Save XMDF files.
  1. Select the File | Save As command.
  2. Save the project as an XMDF file type.
2. Save ADCIRC files.
  1. Select the File | Save As command.
  2. Save the project as an ADCIRC files type.
3. Export mesh datasets.
  1. Right-click on the mesh in the Project Explorer, and select Export Dataset.
  2. Select datasets to be included.
  3. Save the datasets as an XMDF file in the Export Dataset dialog.
3. Load new project.
