AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2013 / How To Label (Name) Of Point In 2 Points Groups

Aug 12, 2013

I have created 8 points (from 4 locations with 2 depths in each location) in _All Points/Points. These 8 points are grouped into 2 Point Groups:

Points #1, #3, #5 & #7 for Point Group - (1) Depth#1 and
Points #2, #4, #6 & #8 for Point Group - (2) Depth#2.

The "Name" of Point is filled with the SampleID (like cdc-ss01-s1, cdc-ss01-s2,...) - see the attached file. From the HELP of AutoCAD C3D 2013,  I have read/studies the "Point Tables" and "Point Label Styles" and I cannot figure out how to label the 8 points to show the "Point Number", "Point Elevation", and "Name" of Point (i. e. the SampleID like cdc-ss01-s1 & cdc-ss01-s2, ....).!!

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Automatic Point Groups When Importing Points?

Jan 8, 2014

Is there a way to create automatic Point Groups when importing points?  Sort of like a Desc Key for layers?  I know it probably is impossible but I have to ask.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Figure Groups And Survey Point Groups

Oct 15, 2009

I just discovered survey figure groups and am playing around with them. Great way to bring certain figures in & out. What seems crazy is that I have to check them on/off one at a time. Am I missing something or is this the only way to add figures to a figure group?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Set Default Point Style For Point Groups

Jun 20, 2012

How to set a default point style for point groups?  Whenever I import survey points, I always put them into their own point group, so I can display each day's worth of survey data differently.  For some reason, the point style always defaults to a certain style (our control point symbol).  I'd like it to default to Basic, so I don't have to change this every time.  Is it a template drawing setting somewhere?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Points And Groups Are Gone After Drawing Recovery

Jun 14, 2013

I'm using Civl3D 2013 and I have a drawing that crashed and a recover dwg was created.

I ran the recovery and now the points and groups are gone. Is there a way to get them back?

I can go back to an older drawing. But, i'm trying to avoid losing a few hours of cleanup.

Is this just one of the bugs that is in Civil3D?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Groups Elevations

Feb 28, 2013

I have two different point groups that I am using in my drawing.  One is from a survey done a few years ago and the other is from one that I did just the other day. 

I don't have a problem inserting the points or whatnot, but the issue I am having is that when I click "Datum" to adjust the elevations of my new point group (to make my benchmark 100.00'), Civil 3D alters all of my points; including the ones from the older survey. Is a way to adjust elevations to only one set of points.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Exporting Multiple Point Groups?

Oct 22, 2013

I have about 50 point groups that the client needs in an ENZ format, is it possible to export them all at once with the name of the point group being the name of the file?

if so, the more annoying part of this is that I actually have to make the ENZ file an ENZD file with the D being the name of the file for each point, if both of these things are possible

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multiple Auto Generated Point Groups

Mar 21, 2012

I am running into a problem where Civil 3D is creating multiple point groups of my 4 existing groups (the original group names are Topo, Existing Ground, Hide, and All Points).  The new groups seem to be copies of the originals in terms of styles but do not include the points  that were designated in the originals (no points are assigned in these copies).

The groups appear some time after I create the surface.

I've also noticed that this occurs in my list of grading criteria as well.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Groups / Surfaces Different Layers And Colors

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Sheets Generates Duplicate Point Groups

Aug 7, 2012

C3D2012. We have a master C3D template that includes a number of point filters (let say 20 of them) and a number of layouts (again, let say 20 of them) to accommodate our two sheet sizes. 

Here is the issue that I am running into, when the Plan Production tools use a layout to create plan and profile sheets from the same master template that is used to initially create the file, the whole process will duplicate each point group 150 times for every group (see attached).  So, what I ended up with is 20 point groups X 150.  In my example, I ended up with 3000 duplicate point groups.

The end result is a file that is somewhat unusable do to the number of point groups.  The other issue is now that all of these point groups are in the file you are unable to delete them all at once without "crashing" C3D.  So you are left to deleting a handful at time.  It is also best if you turn UNDO off while you do it.

I have been able to duplicate this in multiple files; however, from the same master template.  As a test I did create separate templates (which are pretty bare bones) for the plan production and all works well.  Therefore, there is either an issue with C3D and Plan Production and point groups or it is our template.

I would really like to nail down (as best I can) what is generating the 150 duplicates/ point group name to see if there is a way "around" this.

Currently, I am unable to share the template, but it shouldn't be too difficult to re-create.  Take any template, add some point groups to, add a plan and profile sheet to one of the layouts, create a new file from this template, finally create plan and profile sheets from the layout in the very same template.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How Styles / Point Groups / Description Keys / Layers Collide

Aug 24, 2011

In an effort to firm up my understanding of how styles, point groups, description keys and layers collide, I followed the recommendations of an article. How groups/deskeys function together for layer visibility.

This process of Layer visibility that is supposed to make the program flexible makes it almost impossibly complicated.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Label Bearing And Distance Between 2 Points?

In LDD I could label a bearing and distance between 2 points. (Points - not actual surveyed points, but 2 spots I click)

In 3d 2010 I only can label a whole line, not only a portion that I choose. This has to be a label option still.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Label With Coordinates?

May 4, 2012

i've got a bunch of points that need a coordinate label. my drawing is on a state plane coordinate base but i want the point labels to be on an artificial coordinate base. i basically need to start in the corner of a parking lot at 0,0 and work my way out from there with the coordinates based on that 0,0. Is this a possibility?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Label Style

Apr 27, 2012

I'm using AutotCAD Civil 3D 2012 in the Civil 3D workspace, trying to create a point label style to show what I need it to show. I click on a point and select it's properties. Once on the properties tab I go down to the point label style box and clicked on the down arrow. A list of options then comes up and I selected the create/edit option. A small point label style box then appears and i choose the button directly next to the drop-down list and the label style composer box pops up. In this box I go to the layout tab and then go down to the contents box. I select the browse button next to the contents to select the contents. I select the contents I want but when I apply it every point has those contents and I need just that one point to have those contents.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Label Overlap

Mar 21, 2012

I'm thinking that AutoCAD has no such feature, but I'll ask just to make sure.

What I am doing is mapping points which each have a simple point number label. (asbestos load buried in landfill in case you are curious) There are many points which have the same coordinates (up to 20 points sometimes). So, then I have to drag each label individually until all labels are visible.This take a ridiculous amount of time when you are talking about 1000+ points.
