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 :: Description Keys With Number

Jun 13, 2012

Creating a format to keep a number following a code.

My code is BCCD#

My format is DFL CC $+

My result now is:

Raw Desc.  BCCD1 B  (Bottom of Concrete Ditch)

Full Desc. DFL B CC  (Ditch Flow Line and Type)

I am attempting to create a key that will create the following full description from the raw description:

Raw Desc.  BCCD1 B  (Bottom of Concrete Ditch)

Full Desc. DFL1 CC  B (Ditch Flow Line and Type)

The reason that I need to change the description is to comply with certain standard codes from an outside entity but I do not wish to change the filed coding that we use in house.  I cannot seem to find a parameter that would allow me to keep the number behind the DFL descriptor

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 :: 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 :: Survey Database Point Description Length?

Dec 6, 2012

Civil 3D 2013 SP1 (64bit)

When importing an event, my point descriptions are cutoff at 16 characters.

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?

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 :: Point Number Ranks

Nov 20, 2013

I have a method to create new point group.

In this method I add as parameter one vector which contains point numbers.

 string Numeros_Incluidos = "";
//buscamos todos los number point según su id y creamos una cadena string
foreach (uint NP in listaNumberPoints)
Numeros_Incluidos = Numeros_Incluidos + Convert.ToString(NP)


I create  a string called "Numeros_incluidos" that it is a chain of all numbers.



However I would like to create one function to create this string more organized as:

Quad Core Intel i7 3770-cpu 3.40Ghz.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Increase Number Of Points In Point Cloud?

Feb 21, 2013

I have a point cloud with 161 million points in it. This is basically fine and works well but I need to create equally high resolution surfaces from certain regions of the point cloud. No matter what size I choose my export shape, it will only create a surface from a ridiculously small 750,000 odd points, a 'feature' which has been documented on these forums before. I have POINTCLOUDDENSITY set to 100. 

My question is, how can I build a surface from this high resolution point cloud data that has more than 750,000 odd points?

 I'm thinking about mosaic'ing - ie. making several smaller surfaces over the required area and pasting them together.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Symbol Displayed By Point Number Is A Red Circle Over A Pencil

Oct 9, 2013

We have been bringing points directly into a 2012 Civil 3d drawing using the same method for quite a while.  We use a numeric descriptor code and the points are filtered correctly.  In this particular drawing, one description code was singled out and "locked" in the drawing.  The points and symbol show in the drawing slightly muted but when I try to edit the points I am unable to do so.  I have tried the "unlock" command with no result.  The symbol displayed by the point number is a red circle over a pencil.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Raw description Not Within Description Key

Oct 21, 2011

we are updating fron LDD 2004 to Civil 3D 2012 needles to say it a huge change. I've got my template almost done I'm just having one problem. With LDD any point that came in with a raw descripitoin not within the description key it would be placed in the current layer with point number, descripton and elevation. How do I make that happen with Civil3D do I have to change my default lable settings? When I import points with a raw description not within my description key it places the point on Layer 0 and only shows the node no point number.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Number Not Visible When Legacy Hidden Shade Plot Is Selected

Sep 30, 2013

I am having difficulty with the display of my point numbers and description when plotting. I am doing piping desing and utilizing Civil 3D points for the coardinates and elevations to display in a point table. For my viewport, in the properties dialogue box, under the Shade Plot option, I have selected Legacy Hidden due to needing my pipes to display properly only to have my points not display properly. If I opt for Legacy Wireframe or As Displayed, my points display correctly but my pipes do not. Any clue as to how I can have both display properly?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Survey Database - Imported Points Being Assigned Very High Point Number

Feb 12, 2013

When I import points from a survey database there is a very large new number being assigned to points that have overlap/numbering conflicts.

I had some survey from one source that was in the 1000 pt # range & additional survey that was in same numbering sequence.

When importing the points I chose "Resolve all" it is renumbering the Point number value to the 5xxxxxxxx range?

Is there some setting where I can change this to a lower # or how/why this is happening?

Next Point Number value @ Settings Tab>Point>Commands>CreatePoints>Point Identity>Next Point Number = 3.

I've attached a couple of captions illustrating the issue.
