DXF Contour Cleanup

More of a suggestion but it would be a good idea to cleanup the DXF contour exports to make them more presentable. We never worried about it before since our work is mostly based off the point cloud and we create contours from that but in its current form the contours exported from DroneDeploy are too raw and hard to look at. I would suggest smoothing and minimum contour length filters. Contours are purely for visual reference and really shouldn’t be used for volumetric calcs. Contour labels is another big item but I understand the complication there and there are other easy ways to accomplish that.

Quick example of the DroneDeploy DTM 1ft vs Point Cloud to CAD. Actually it looks like DD is doing some smoothing but we need to get rid of the contours less than 25ft in length.
