    You want to export an offsets table. Could you please tell from where to where you want to pass it. What format does the table and what format you want to get?
    What is really what you want to do?

    These appear to be the coordinates (X, Y, Z) of the points in each cross section.
    There are not very well sorted but without seeing the model you've done is difficult to have an opinión.
    There are programs that can do what you want, for example, from a lines plane they generate the table of offsets.
    Could you show a picture of what you have?.

    In autoship (Modelmaker) you can get the offset values from the GF file.
