AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Control Points Coordinates Of Nurbs Surfaces
Sep 6, 2013
Any way of viewing the coordinates of the Control Vertices (Control Points) of 3d or 2d NURBS Surfaces. I tried to use the "properties" of the 3d NURBS surface that i designed but i could not find them anywhere..
i would also like to ask if it is even possible to export these coordinates to txt or even more to Excel.
Is it possible to create a shape and then edit the coordinates of the shape's control points? When I currently click on a shape's control point, it doesn't offer any way to fine tune the location of that point by manually typing in the X, Y coordinate.
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.
I created a volume surface between the as-built and design surfaces, now I would like to show the points that display the cut/fill depths between these two surfaces. I tried modifying the surface property of that volume surface but doesn't seem to offer what I want.
I have been using the "LIST" command to get coordinates of a point. The list can be as long as my monitor is high. I need to copy the coordinates of about 3 000 points to a Microsoft Word file to manipulate with them.
The "LIST" command would show me about 4 points after which i have to press "ENTER" to get the next ones, but this is obviously pointless. How could i get the coordinates of very many points to a text file all at once?
These 8 points are for 4 sampling locations with 2 depths for each sampling location. I used AutoCAD 2012 a little bit before and I am new in using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013. What are the key steps and tips of using the values of XYZ-coordinates listed the above-mentioned table to input manually into the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 program. Note: 4 sampling locations are in the 4 corners of a square lot and the 8 points should look like 8 corners of a box.
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?
Running C3d 2012 here, but haven't used prior versions. I'm using fieldbooks to import survey data. If there is an error of some kind and I "Re-import event" for the fieldbook, then the occupied points from the field book are deleted out of the survey database and I get the resulting error of "point invalid" during the import. My fix is to go into my control drawing and import the control points from the drawing into the survey database then run the "re-import" again.
I'm noticing with the new 2012 released, start up times are much slower. This seems to be caused by a 3 minute long control surfaces: intialising.The only control surface I'm using is a Intos tablet.Is there anyway to by-pass this?The .cfg didn't seem to have any control surfaces line.
I am busy writing a small app to find a best fit circle through a series of points that roughly follow the profile of an arc. This data was scanned in using a Farro arm and imported to AutoCAD.
I would like to use VB.Express and the AutoCAD API. So far I have managed to write some code (loosely based on some examples from the AutoCAD .NET Developer's Guide) to allow the user to select the points to process.
I have three questions around this issue:
a.) How can I set up a selection filter to limited the user's input to 2d points only? b.) Once I have the selection set of points, how can I extract the "X" and "Y" values of each of the points to be able to process further? c.) Is there some sort of Object model diagram for the AutoCAD API that I can download, or any (downloadable) literature to get started with the API and VB.Express. I have looked online for some books and Amazon list them, but a. they are in hardcopy format and b.) the most recommended one (i.e. VB.NET Programming for AutoCAD Customization - Level 1 Jeremy Winters) is out of print. I am specifically looking for downloadable books because of the delivery times and shipping costs to get a hard copy.
I'm trying to make a standard block which will automatically read the co-ordinates! i have started making it trying to use fields, but when inserting the block into the drawing it stays at x=0, y=0, which is the point in the block. how do i get it to read the point in the drawing, and also how would i always get it to read the world ucs.
i have attached the block i've started, haven't added any dynamics yet as i'm just testing it.
I have coordinates for an aerofoil which I put into Autocad and plotted using pline. I have 52 points, what I want is to have more points on the aerofoil, i.e interpolate. I can probably create more points by averaging two adjacent y-points and two adjacent x-points but it would be much better if Autocad did this
the LIST command only gives the points i put in the program.
Possible to view the control points of a 2d or 3d object. I know that we can view the control points for spline objects, but is it possible to view the control points also for every other object i draw?
I’m trying to export from my drawing point X-Y position coordinates to Excel for use in programming a metrology that will measure at these locations.
When I use the EATTEXT command to pull up the data extraction wizard, it will export the positions & extracts the locations to a spreadsheet format. But coordinate numbers I get, seem to be relative to the World USC system & not the origin I align & set in the center.
Yet when I use ID Point, to check positions the coordinates of the points are correct & relative to the center origin. How to get the location coordinates relative to the center USC origin I've located in the center of my part?
I have just started exploring APE 11 and found one problem. I cannot control GPS coordinates and location tags when I use Add Places. Google maps does not always show correct place on map when address is entered, if I adjust the place on map manually, it either loses location tags or asumes that it is another address. Neither scenario is desired. What I would love to do is to be able to type coordinates and edit location tags (now only deletion is an option). API 11 does not allow to do what I want, is that correct?
I was thinking about doing some manipulation with *.pse11db file as it apperantly is SQLite database. Any example of SQL query that would
a) list all photos (their full file paths) for specified album and b) SQL query that would allow to edit GPS coordinates and location tags for specified photo (its full file path)?
I'm trying to define a grid based on polar coordinates.
Can be produced using the following MATLAB n=1:50000;r=sqrt(n);t=360/((sqrt(5)+1)/2)+1)*pi/180*n;plot(r.*cos(t),r.*sin(t),'o')
I need to insert points based on the polar coordinates defined by the equations. I knew a little bit of LISP 10 Years ago, now it's a total blank. I've been trying to write a script to make this work but after 5 days I'm still without sucess.
I had to create a boundary map and place points to all corners. How to export these newly created points back into my data collector (Ranger) and also I'm trying to figure out how to print out a points list.
I stumbled on to this thread but I guessing that it's a different CAD year because my modify tab doesn't look like this. URL.....
I have recieved a file with many points and would like to convert them into COGO points in Civil 3D. The problem is; I would like to keep the hole ID's as I convert, I've made a few conversions and lose the hole ID every time (not showing in Name or Description). Is there a seting I am missing to keep these? My aim to to organize the COGO points in different point groups.
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.
