AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cogo Point Properties Window Description Format Is Forced Lower Case Text?

Nov 29, 2012

Just switched to 2012 from 2010. When I try to edit the description format field in the properties window of a selected cogo point, I can't type in caps, it's all lower case. If I right click and edit the point, I can use capital letters, however. (running C3D 2012 sp4, Win7 64bit, 8GB)

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Change A Survey COGO Point To A Regular COGO Point

Sep 16, 2013

Question 1: Is it possible to change a Survey COGO point to a regular COGO point so you can edit the datum?

If not:

Question 2: Is it possible to transfer the survey database from one office to another so the end office can make datum changes to the survey COGO points.  Will the link between the file and the database still apply?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: COGO Points Description And Styles

Sep 10, 2012

How to set a default point description to match the point number. I need to match the point number and the point description as per below:

Point # = 1 - Description = 1Point # = 2 - Description = 2Point # = 3 - Description = 3and so on.

Is there a quick way to add this description once the points are already created?

Also, it seem I can't make the default style and label to work. I edited the Feature Setting on the Setting tab of the Toolspace and I made sure there's no child override. When I open the point creation menu, my default styles are there (grayed out), but when I create the points, they pick up another style and another label style.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Move Cogo Point Label

Sep 18, 2013

I have a large number of cogo points that I have set. I would like to move, as a group, the label portion only and leave the coordinate value as is. This would be a time saver as I am seeing that I am going to have to move every point individually. I used to be able to do this in LDD along with changing the rotation. I've tried locking the points and then moving them but the values change. Not too happy with the lack of control with the leader either.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Move Cogo Point Label Freely?

Aug 5, 2012

any way to make a cogo point label become freely movable. Just now I can move it somewhat freely to the left or to the right of the original location, but if I want to move it just up or down it doesn't work very well. It flips around the (invisible) leader.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cogo Point Objects Too Small In PS Layout

Aug 10, 2012

I am a surveyor doing an asbuilt of some ponds. I am working in the engineer's dwg. In PS, he does not scale down his drawing sheet block to 1"=1', he keeps it the same scale as model space, i.e. 1"=50'.

He has a viewport in the layout, and my Cogo Points seemed to be scaled at 1"=1', which makes them much to small, but everthing else is scaled correctly.

How can I make my Cogo Points appear bigger in PS?

I tried dbl-clicking in the viewport to be in MS, and the viewport says it's scale is 1'0" = 1'0". When I change it to 1"=50', the model view shrinks way down (the viewed area is bigger), and when I scroll to make the model view bigger, the Cogo Points are still small.

When I read the Properties of the viewport, it says:

Anno scale: 1"=50
Standard scale= 1"=50
Custom scale= 0.02

How I can get this viewport to make my Cogo Points big as they should be?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2011 Edit Cogo Point Descriptions

May 19, 2011

I'm seeing weird behavior in C3D 2011 that I never saw in previous versions.Sometimes when I select a Cogo Point and attempt to edit the Raw Description from the Properties window, C3D changes the description to all lower-case letters, and it will not let me key in any upper-case letters.  If I select the point -> Edit Points, I can edit the description in Panorama without problems.  It's only in the Properties window that it refuses to accept anything other than uppercase letters.

This issue only happens sometimes.  Sometimes, I'm able to edit descriptions from the Properties window with no problem.  Other times, C3D changes the existing description to all lowercase letters, and refuses to allow me to enter anything but lowercase letters.what causes it, and ideally some way to get C3D 2011 to stop behaving like this?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Long Time To Move Cogo Point?

Mar 29, 2012

It's taking a long time to move cogo points. About 2 minutes for a single point move. Other commands affecting points are taking longer too. Would it just be a function of file size.

 Sample point:

Space: Model space
Handle = daf3e
Primary point group : Pro Face Curb
Point Number : 5198

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cogo Point Elevation Precision / Display From LDD

Oct 10, 2012

I'm trying to determine if it's possible to take a 09 LDD Companion drawing in which the elevations for many points have been moved AND/OR rotated (to align with roadway), and not only convert these to C3D, but also have them transferred along with the move/rotate information.  We're talking about a mile long stretch of roadway and the project is 6 years old (i.e. no C3D when it was originally done). 

The problem is that there are a ton of ground shots that need only be shown to 0.1 precision but are shown to 0.01 precision.  LDD was not able to assign an elevation precision to groups of points, only all cogo points together, which meant we had to explode certain groups of "soft shot" points once they had been inserted at the desired precision. 

If there's no way to do what I'm asking, it's no big deal for this case since the higher precision can be easily rounded to the lower by the viewer (better than the other way around).  But as I am the only one on C3D and have been for the past 2 and a half years, we will likely face this monster again several times over with other drafters' projects and I'd like to have a best practice in place if we need to go the other way (extracting 0.01 precision from 0.1 precision).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Override Cogo Point Elevation Label With Text

Dec 17, 2012

How I would replace the Elevation label on a point with Alphanumeric text on certain points in a point group (or if it can be done at all)

Some background info:

I work with site diagrams that have monitoring wells and each one has a groundwater elevation value that gets updated every year according to field data. Our current setup is that the monitor well name and elevation values are displayed using point labels and looks like:

x 12-1 (Monitoring well name)

   788.432 (Groundwater elevation value)

However, sometimes the monitoring well is dry and we need to display 'DRY' instead of a numeric elevation value. Autocad won't let me put 'DRY' as an elevation because it's not a number. Is there a way to override this, or somehow make the label display 'DRY' if elevation of 0 is entered? 

Another use to overriding point label elevation is that sometimes the groundwater elevation that we get from the monitoring well is so far off from the general contour pattern that we will put the elevation value of that well in brackets such as (788.432) and indicate that this means the elevation was not included in the groundwater contour flow map. 

Is there a way to do this override, or is there another method I should be using to label my monitoring well elevations? I know I could just MTEXT everything, but that's double the time to update the point elevations for the contours and then updating the mtext to display the numerical elevation values.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cogo Point Default Label And Layer Settings?

Dec 11, 2012

I am using Description Keys for all my points that I bring in from surveying in the field.  Any point that does not have a specific descriptor key ends up on a specific layer with a specific style that I cannot figure where to set.  I have gone through my point default settings as stated in other postings but all seem to be set correctly mostly to <none>.  I have gone through my Point Group settings without finding the culprit either.  I can easily change the settings as I only have a few points that do this but I want to find the issue.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Drag Cogo Point Label Takes 75 Seconds?

May 18, 2012

I've been generally having trouble with Civil 3D 2012 taking a long time to do tasks. One that takes quite a while is if I drag a Cogo Point Label. As stated it takes about 75 seconds. It will move to where I drag it immediately but then the program is unresponsive for a minute and 15 seconds.

In the past 4 days I've repaired C3D, tried 4 or 5 different versions of the display driver and did a windows update. A lot of commands, specifically Civil 3D commands, are very slow. Does this ring any bells?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Fatal Error - Create COGO Point (2014)

Jul 10, 2013

I have a plugin that creates cogo points, and for some users it seems to crash every time, but for others it works just fine (as for myself, I have zero problems with it).  The subroutine is simple:

Using civLock As DocumentLock = acadDoc.LockDocument
Using trans As Transaction = db.TransactionManager.StartTransaction()
Dim Location As New Point3d(PointX, PointY, PointZ)
Dim CogoPoints As CogoPointCollection = civilDoc.CogoPoints

[Code] .....
The fatal error occurs when the point is added, prior to the attempt to assign a raw description.  What is boggling me is that, like I said, it works flawlessly for me (and others) but not at all for some users.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Description Gets Truncated?

Nov 28, 2012

In LDDT 2009, I was able to describe points like this: STK #32

But in Civil 3D 2013, whenever I use the # symbol, the description gets truncated.  So, using the point description above, it will show up in Civil 3D 2013 as STK rather than STK #32.

Is this a setting or something that I can switch on so that the I can use symbols such as # and - in my point description?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: COGO Point Labels Not Rotating When Entire Drawing Is Rotated?

May 14, 2013

So I have a survey of a roadway that was created 15 years ago and was converted into autocad civil 3d 2012. No problems there, however, I am going through the survey and rotating the COGO points (ie Traffic Signs, Utility Poles) and the text to be parallel to the roadway. I am in UCS World and have no problems rotating the points and text to what I want. THe problem starts when I rotate the drawing using UCS 3P so that I am looking at a portion of the roadway that is parallel to my computer screen. Now the text and orientation of the signs etc are no longer parallel to the roadway and did not rotate when I rotated the entire project. 

Now I was under the impression the  points were to rotate automatically to what I set them as, ie parallel to the roadway. I'm sure this is an easy fix or I am not understanding something.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Feature Line By Snapping To Cogo Point Node

I think this issue started with SP2. I don't remember having these issues in SP1 and earlier.

Create some COGO points at varying elevations.Start a new feature line.Use "node" object snap and pick your first cogo pointIt does not pick up the elevation of the point (it used to)Now draw feature line segments to a few more cogo points entering the elevation each time.It does not pick up the elevation of the point (it used to)Now switch to Arc mode and snap to a few more cogo points.It does correctly picks up the elevation of the cogo points (like it used to)R.K.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Freeze Point Number And Description

Dec 4, 2012

I just received a drawing with a bunch of points in it. One of the layer is called V-ROAD-CNTR-PNTS. Unfortunately, the point number, description, and elevation are all in that same layer. How do I keep just the elevation turned on but turn off the point description and number? When I turn off or freeze the layer V-ROAD-CNTR-PTNS, all three disappear. I just need the elevation showing.

Attached is an image of my screen.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Blocks And Description Keys?

Mar 15, 2012

I am trying to set up our templete and I am having issues.  I have set up description keys and such. When I import our survey data all comes in (ie blocks and linework). The problem is when I try to plot the block that are inserted on what appears to be the correct layer they do not plot out.  When I freeze the point layer the block disappears as well. What setting am I missing that will create the blocks according to the description key and keep them on a separate layer like it did in Land Desktop but keep them dynamic? I am not sure if the subscription service covers.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: XREFed COGO Point Markers Pick Up Color Of Current Layer?

Aug 7, 2012

We have survey files that we xref into our design files. In the survey files themselves, the points don't change color. When we xref them in, the point markers (only the circular node on the actual point, not the line coming off of it) take on the color of whatever the current layer is in the drawing, only fixable by changing the current letter and regenerating.

Is there any setting to increase this?

If I have Microsoft Access installed on my computer, can one easily modify the table?

If you can modify the table using Access, can you define a default DB or would I have to redefine the string length within a table everytime I create a DB thru Civil 3D GUI?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Points / Symbols / Point Styles And Description Keys

Nov 26, 2013

C3D 2012 SP4
Win7 Pro

 I want my survey symbols to come in on their own layers, separate from the point label. Lets use UPOL as an example: I have a point style UPOL*.  It has assigned to it a block representing the utility pole.The size is set to drawing units, and sized to .1 inches.

                                               The marker is on layer: V-NODE-POLE-SYMB

                                               The label is on layer: V-NODE-POLE

The description key is as follows.  UPOL*

                                                        Style: UPOL*

                                                        Point Label Style: Standard

                                                        Layer: V-NODE-POLE-SYMB

No other parameters have been choosen; scale parameter, fixed scale, or use drawing scale.

Have I done this correctly, to accomplish my task?  I also noticed that I cannot turn the point label off by picking it.  I have to turn the layer off in the layer manager.Should I use the description keys to scale the symbol, instead of the point style?
