[Therion] UTM 30 N

OK, as I've not got anywhere with this, is there a way to ignore the
coordinates in a survex 3D file, and instead fix a survey station to a point
where I define the position and coordinate system in my therion file, and
associate a station in my Survex 3d file with that point? The problem I have
is that I am using existing survex .3d files where all the coordinates are
in UTM30 European 1979 Datum. This is not the same as the more common WGS84
Datum. So I cannot set the coordinate system for my .3d file directly.
You can hopefully see what I am trying to do here:
#fix 1.0 41.234567 -3.21012 213
import 0072.3d -surveys use #-cs EPSG:32230
I am importing an existing survey centreline from the .3d file. I cannot
assign this a coordinate system directly as Therion does not support the
coordinate system I need.
So instead I define the point 1.0 as fixed using the WGS84 Lat Long which I
have. Now I want to attach the stations imported from the .3d file to the
fixed point to correctly position the cave.
