How to import files from CUBE to Visum?

Since Visum 12.5 there is the add-In 'Import Cube network' by Scripts -> VisumAddIn -> Import.

The import of CUBE consideres the following network objects - nodes, areas, lines, connections and PuT lines. Additionally, turn attributes like penalties and prohibited turns can be read in. Required files:
1) ASRI shp files for nodes (including shx, dbf files).
2) ESRI shp files for lines (including shx, dbf files).

Further files (optional):
1) ASCII text file for turn time penalties and prohibited turns.
2) Cube PuT line file (*.lin) in ASCII format (+ve node numbers mark stop points, where boarding and alighting is permitted).
