AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Add Points To Surface Not In Point Group?

Mar 7, 2012

Is it possible to add points to a surface without adding them to a point group?  I've got a bunch of ponds I'm doing and it will save me some time if I could just select the points, and not have to put them in a point group then add the point group.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Group When Importing Survey Points?

May 23, 2013

Sometimes when i import points Civil 3d creates a Point group in the drawing with the name of the point file, sometime it does not. I prefer when it does create this point group. It always seems to create a Survey Point Group. How do i control wether or not a point group is created in the import?

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

Feb 20, 2013

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 :: Deleting Random Points

Jun 11, 2013

As I was creating a surface consisted of contour lines, suddenly some bunch of random points in the surface were also created. I want my surface to be solely generated by contour lines only. So...

I know I can get rid of those points by deleting them through edit but I want to get rid of them all at once. How can I do that? Or... Is there even a way to do that?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Group For DTM

Aug 7, 2012

I am having a problem getting all the points I want to include in my DTM into a Point Group. The raw description inclusion of most double codes, codes with line designators and codes with size and description modifiers does not bring the points into the point group. (e.g. WL S,  CLF E,  PIN 18 where the description key set is created to size the pine tree by 18 and create a descriptor that says 18Inch Pine).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Group Creation

Nov 7, 2013

When point groups are deleted through the UI and then recreated via code with the same name the criteria such as the excluded point number list is included. It would be nice if it started with a clean slate once created and not keep around deleted point group.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Group Properties

Apr 23, 2013

I have a bunch of culvert points in my drawing and I would like to include all of the in the same point group.  They all have CUL in the raw discription but some are CUL 0.3 INV, CUL 0.4 INV, etc, etc.  

Is it possible to group all of these by just using the CUL somehow so that I don't miss any?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Set A Default Point Group?

Jan 20, 2012

How do I set a Default Point Group?  When creating points manually, I want them to automatically go into a certain/current point group, but since I don't know the point range prior to creating the points, I am having to continuously update the "include" points catergory.  I can set the default/current layer, default point style, etc, can I do the same with point group?  I understand about the "all points" group and the description keys that can be utilized in the other individual point groups to group information , but Is there a better way?  Under the point creation toolbar, there is a point group template, but when I create a point group thru there, it doesn't do anything but create the point group.  None of the newly created points go into that group....  what is the point of that option?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2014 - Point Group (NO DISPLAY) Does Not Appear To Be Included

Dec 20, 2013

I just started work in Civil 3D 2014 and was going about creating different point groups for some volume calculations so I could create different surfaces.  I noticed after creating my first point group that the NO DISPLAY group could not been seen in the Prospector under Point Group.  Now in previous editions there has always been a NO Display Group so you can easily view your different groups.  Is this something they changed in Civil 3D 2014 or was the installations faulty?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Project Point Group To Profile View?

Apr 12, 2012

Project objects to profile view... got it. No problems selecting individual survey points or survey figures and projecting to profile view. Is there a way to project a entire point group to a profile. I have a point group created for the large number of points to be projected. Next I right click on the point group and click "select'. Then go to Project objects to profile view. Nothing...

This process works for the survey figures, but not the point groups! In prospector tab go to survey > figures then select CTRL + each figure to project then VIOLA' the whole group of figures are projected.

Is this limited to graphical selections only? If so, is there a workaround to generate a graphical selection set from the point group.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Station Offset Report By Point Group?

Feb 2, 2012

I am trying to use the Station Offset to Points report from the Reports manager. Currently, as far as I ca see, there is no way to select a group of points to include, either by point group or selection from the drawing.  There is only "Select All' or "Deselect All".  I want a report that will show the station, offset, raw or full description and elevation of a group of points related to an alignment/street.  I don't see that option.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Lighting Up Grips When Selecting Point Group?

Oct 5, 2013

when selecting a point group from the prospector tab, sometimes the point grips will light up and sometimes only the points will be only dashed.

Having the grips light up like that is very useful when viewing a region with many point groups.

How do I toggle this on and off?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Find Primary Point Group Using VLisp

Aug 30, 2013

When I use the AutoCAD List command on a Civil 3d Point, one reported datum is Primary Point Group.

I want to get at that information with vlisp, but when I vlax-dump a point, there is no mention of Primary Point Group. If that's a limitation of using vlisp, let me know, and I won't chase it. 

Maybe I have to go in through the point groups collection?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Same Point Group Are Imported Into Separate Layers

Oct 31, 2012

I am running C3D 2010. 

Somewhere along the line, someone in our office made our template import points into separate layers based on the RAW Description. I would like to un-do this. So far, I have deleted every point style & point label style except for 'Basic'. Inside of 'Basic', the layer is 'V-NODE'. However, some of my points are still coming in on layers like: 'V-Site-'(Raw Desc). 

I'm about to start from scratch on the template, however, I'd like to avoid that because of the array of styles that are in it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Group Query Invalid With 2012

Apr 12, 2012

I'm using civil 3D 2012 for 2 weeks now. When I create a query to include or exclude points in a specific point group I get an error. It doesn't allow me to build a query with decimal number but only with natural number. 

Everything was fine with my old civil 3D 2011.

The problem is with civil 3D 2012? or maybe their is a magic switch somewhere to allow me to use decimal number?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Import Survey Data Default Point Group Styles

May 3, 2012

When you use the Import Survey Data wizard it automatically creates a point group that goes to the top of the list. This used to be created with a standard point style and description, but something has changed and I'm getting a different symbol and label that I definitely don't want as the default. I would think that this would be controled by the CreatePointGroup settings, but that isn't working for me. I can't find any other settings that would override or control this.

Dec 19, 2013

I am trying to get point 1234 to show a label that says Point #1234 and then in a grading plan have that same point show up as a spot elevation.  I have tried making two point groups "Point #" and "Spot Grades" which include the same points in them with two different label styles for each group, however the point seems to only want to take one label style at a time.

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 :: Points Names Without Assigning Point Numbers

Jun 15, 2009

I'm trying to import a GPS coordinate file where our Surveyor has used both Points Names (Alpha-Numeric) and Point Numbers. see below. I have setup a Point File Format for Pname, North, East, Elev and RAW Description, to import this comma separated point file. The problem is that Civil 3D does not want to seem to use a numeric point name as a Point Number, instead the number is used as a Point name and Civil 3D assigns a Point number from the next availible point number. Is it possible to automatically, when the Point Name is a numer only to also assign it the same value as the Point Names?

I would really want Civil 3D to allow users to use Both, Point Names without assigning a Point number.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Created Point Style To Flatten Points

Jun 15, 2012

I am running C3D 2012

I have created a point style to flatten the points and lines I create locating buildings effortlessly. I have called the point style "no elevation" and set the 3D geometry to flatten it at zero elevation. I then created a Point key description BLDX that references the style "No Elevation". I also made a figure under my figure group for BLDX that is not a breakline.

My BLDX is still coming in at elevation as well as the corresponding figure. When I hover over the points, it shows that it is using my point style of "No Elevation".

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, ....).!!
