AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Points Will Not Display In Drawing?

Oct 9, 2012

I have a drawing where points that I create will not display.
I have created points in this drawing before.Previously created points display fine.Points created in another drawing and imported into this drawing display fine.All layers have been turned on and thawed, to make sure it's not a layer issue."All points" point group is the top point group.When I create a point manually everything seems to work fine, info is echoed to the command line, etc., but then nothing happens. Obviously it's a setting somewhere, but it is driving me up the wall trying to figure out what setting.  I'm sure I will slap my forehead when told what it is.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: COGO Points Won't Display In One Layout

Apr 12, 2012

I have a layout in my drawing (Civil 3d 2011) with multiple viewports and my point symbols (trees, manholes, etc.) won't display. I have other layouts in the same drawing that display them fine, but I need to use this specific layout for what I'm doing. This must be a setting of some sort but I can't seem to figure it out.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Display Different Points In Each Viewport / 2013

Mar 11, 2013

Is there a way for me to display different points in each viewport?  I have figured out how to freeze layers and realize I can put the points and labels on different layers but am curious if this is the only alternative?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Drawing Points Using GPS

Sep 10, 2013

How can I draw points in Civil 3d using GPS coordinates?

Is it any way to input the coordinates manually if i have only a few key points, and then superimpose my topography or other objects? or should I insert a data file to get the points first? How can I upload the data file from my GPS tool, and how to figure out in which format to insert it?

I  would like to draw with using the GPS coordinates itself, NOT the northing and easting( X,Y,) is it possible?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Points Disappearing From Drawing

Feb 29, 2012

Using Civil 3D 2011, I have a topo drawing that's about 2 miles long.  The points have styles to them to show the actual survey item such as manhole, trees, signs, etc.  I have also created a point group called "no display" that I have added certain points to so they don't show up in the topo.  While adding additional points to the "no display" point group, I have noticed that ALL the points but 3 have vanished from the drawing.We just installed the SP2.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Points In Drawing Coverts To Mm

Feb 26, 2013

I have imported a fieldbook Civil 3D and the co-ordinates all look in the point file. But when I insert them in to the drawing they are converted to mm (decimal shift 3 to the right).  I can not seem to change this.  

I opened a new drawing made sure the drawing units were meters etc etc, and still the drawing come in and are moved to mm positions. The point file still shows everything is correct in meters and I even click on the point in the drawing and list it and it lists correct in meters.  But the co-ordinates are in mm inside the drawing. Dimensions between them is in mm also.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Update Survey Points In Drawing

Jun 27, 2012

Here is my procedure.

1. Import survey point via ascii file into a new drawing call it Field-dwg.
2, Create a survey data base
3. Import all points in the the data base under import event.
4. open existing drawing, work-dwg, import points as needed from the Survey Data Base.

Problem : Survey points needs be renumber. 

I goto field-dwg, and fix the points (renumber).

open survey data base for edit, and import Event, field-dwg/points/update :  nothing happen

also try Import Event, field-dwg, survey points, update : nothing happen

so I re-import the points, all is good.

Then I goto work-dwg, and  try to update the point, nothing happen.

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 :: Drawing Polylines From Points Not Working?

Jul 1, 2013

I have points in a 2012 C3D drawing and I am looking to draw 3d polylines from point to point.  Ultimately I am wanting to generate breaklines for a surface from a topo.  I was able to do this a few months ago and now no matter what I try nothing seems to work.  When use the 3P command the Z Vertex is 0.  All of the points in the drawing have elevations. I tried drawing a feature line however, the beginning elevation is saying 0.  Its as if these lines do not recognize my points as having elevations.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Copy Cogo Points From One Drawing To Another

Mar 11, 2011

I would like to copy cogo points from one drawing to another, keeping both their layer and user defined properties.

I can:

1. Do a copy and then paste to orginal co-ords. This keeps the layers but loses the UDP's.

2. Export the points to a csv and import into new drawing. This keeps the UDP's but loses layers

3. Export to XML. This loses both Layers and UPD's

I don't have a desc key file setup for the codes on these pts so this is not an option.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Displaying Points In Drawing As Manually Create Them?

I was wondering if there is a setting somewhere that can be turned on to display the manual points I am creating as I create them instead of having to go back and update the point group before they display in the drawing?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contours And Points Disappear When Saving Drawing

Jun 6, 2012

I just installed AutoCAD 2010 Civil 3D on a 32 bit Windows 7 machine. When I open a dwg sent from a surveyor I can see and manipulate all the linework, contours, points, and SRF breaklines in the drawing. When I proceed to save the file to my computer and reopen it, the contours and points disappear; however all linework and surface breaklines remain. The two files that I have been working with were saved originally in 2004 and 2007 format. I have tried saving to their respective versions but that has not worked.

The only way that I have been able to retain these objects is by first exploding them and making them into a block and later inserting them into the other drawing. If I try to make them into a block without exploding them they also disappear. 

Is there a way to retain all drawing objects directly from saving?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Drawing Lines To Cogo Points Hangs Up

Feb 23, 2012

When I start to draw my polylines to cogo points I have inserted in my drawing it keeps wanting to hang up when I hover over the point. I have set up my point styles to bring in our points with all the attribute information so I am thinking it keeps trying to read all that info as soon as my mouse hits it..

I saw a post about rollovertips but that did not change anything. Any ides what might be causing this? Im using Civil3D 2011.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Survey Points With Ground Coordinates Are Scaled Inserted Into Drawing?

Sep 5, 2013

Using Civil 3D 2013Coordinates coming out of survey equipment are modified state plane GROUND (scaled up from the origin by the combined factor).Drawing is setup with state plane coordinate system with user defined transformation to establish geodetic reference and the ability to label lat/long or import Bing map data.Survey database is setup with "No Datum, No Projection" (data is already at ground, I don't want ot transformed).Import style is PNEZD and is set to use Northing/Easting not Grid Northing/Grid Easting.After importing points into survey database, coordinates of survey points match the CSV.  This is good.After importing points from database to drawing, they are taken as grid coordinates, are scaled again and are off ~5,300 feet northeast.Why would Civil 3D assume the points in the database are grid and scale them when the import style used did not specify grid?  Is there a setting or something I can do to tell Civil 3D to leave my coordinates alone?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Feature Lines Color Display When Xref Into Another Drawing

Jan 31, 2013

Why do our feature lines all come in as the color white when xreffed into a drawing? Feature lines show up just fine in our topo drawing, so then we xref it into our design drawing and they all show as if the color is white when is is not in the layer properties.  All other items (symbols, points, and lines) come in as the color they were drawn in the topo drawing.

AutoCad 2D :: Text Display In Drawing Versus Text Display From Xref In Same Drawing

Sep 7, 2011

NOTE: This is in AutoCAD 2002.

I'm working on one of our standard layouts for a client. Our typical drawing setup is the base drawing file, surrounded by our Xref'ed border. On said border Xref, we have all the information that does not change between drawings (Revision history, address of job site, etc). The only things that change - and, thus, are not on the xref - are the title of each individual sheet and their number; in the case of these objects, they are located on the drawing file itself in the appropriate position. They are, however, the same font as the text in the Xref - "Standard". Or, at least, they're supposed to be.

The text in the base drawing file seems to be a different version of the text from the Xref - a much blockier, sharper-edged version than the Xref text. My first response was "Okay - I'll just copy/paste the text from the border into my base drawing file, and force the existing text to match the properties of the imported text."

This, however, did not work. The imported text automatically assumed the same form as the existing text. Here's a screenshot from the base drawing, illustrating this (The "Mechanical Plan" also exists on the base drawing, and not the Xref):

I copied the existing text from the base drawing (In this case, the "Mechanical Plan") and pasted it directly into the Xref itself, to see what would happen. Apparently, it wants to stay blocky:

In the latter example, I even tried to force the blocky text to assume the properties of the smooth text via MA (Match properties). I specifically need to make the text in the base drawing conform to the style that the text is assuming in the Xref - which is to say "Smooth."

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Large Surface - Converting Points To Cogo Points

Mar 5, 2013

I have a large surface (over 1.5 million points and 20 000hectares)

I need to get a point file .csv from the TIN to be able to use it in another program.

-so i've extracted the points from my surface, but they are Autocad points.

-next step is to convert them to civil 3d points.

-I can not select them all when converting them or my computer crashes.

-so i select about 25 000 at a time, the converting takes roughly 10 minutes.

and i have over 1.5 million points to do.

how can i speed this up.

will more ram useful?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Designating Points As Control Points

Aug 17, 2012

I have a couple points that were part of an import event (data from a previous project) which I want to assign as control points for an incoming traverse, is there any way to assign those as control points?  I can't seem to find a way to do that other than perhaps re-importing the specific points as control points and overwriting the existing ones.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Moving Points Out Of All Points Group?

Apr 10, 2013

I have a project that was started by leaving all the survey data inside the "All Points" group.  So, I'm concerned that when I enter my as built survey points, that even if I put them into their own group, that the original surface will still look at them and just rebuild to my asbuilt data, effectively cancel out the purpose of the asbuilt survey.  Will this happen? 

I want to take the original points and put them into a group of their own, but I don't know if that will affect anything or not?  I have several wetlands already designed on that surface with volume calcs already done too. 

What should I do?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Unable To Display Reference Points

Aug 17, 2013

I´ve used AutoCAD for a while but this just appeared. The reference points are not displayed on a current line (or any other figure) when I want to join another figure with it, what I mean is that the little green x or square figures won´t appear when I want to join two objects at a point. If I create a circle, for example, and I want to create another circle around it, both with the same origin, AutoCAD won´t display that origin automatically.

AutoCad :: ID To Points To Match Drawing?

Dec 7, 2011

I need to extract points from an Autocad Drawing and give them the same point numbers as shown on the drawing. The drawing is a foundation plan showing pile foundations each with its unique number. I would normally draw a point over each pile and then copy and paste in preparation for uploading to my survey kit but it would be good to keep the same ref point. (I'm using a 2008 version)
