Aug 16, 2013

Im still new to Civil 3D and i would like to know how to connect inported points using 3D polylines. I imported my points from Excel in a PNEZD format. How do i get the 3d poly line to snap to my points so I can Connect them? someone mentioned using a feature line to connect the points but im not sure how or what that would do.

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.

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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, ....).!!

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Assign A Set Of Points A Sequence Of Point Numbers

Jan 17, 2012

What I wish to do is to assign a set of points a sequence of point numbers (or custom properties) of my choosing. For example, I have the following points:






I wish to assign point 100 -> 1000, 105 to 1001, 107 to 1002, 104 -> 1003, and 102 ->1004. Basically, I am looking for a command or utility that implements the "TCOUNT" (using select-order) command, but for Cogo points instead of text. The renumber points command appears to only work with offsets, and does not eliminate gaps. I can sequence the points if I select the points I want, then copy them -> set duplicate points to sequence from the range I choose, but this does not allow for reordering of point numbers. I tried individually selecting them in the order I wanted, but didn't change the order in which they were numbered.

Alternatively, I can leave the point numbers the same, and assign a user defined property that I can use to sequence the points in the order of my choosing. However, I'm not sure how to go about assigning the sequence I wish short of typing in each value individually; obviously non-ideal.

A third possibility that presented itself to me was to create new, correctly sequenced points that overlap exactly with the old ones, and then somehow merge the two sets together. Would there be a way to merge the old points and the new ones based on the fact that the two points have the same X-Y coordinates? Preferably done in CAD itself; the last resort would be to export both sets of points out to excel, then do some fancy manipulation in excel, then reimport into CAD.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Draw Lines That Radiate Out From A Point On Different Bearings And Distances

Jan 18, 2013

I have a very frequent need to draw lines that radiate out from a point on different bearings and distances. I think of this as a sideshot.



Civil 3D’s sideshot command acts differently. It draws lines between the radial end points.



Do you know what command is needed to do what I want? It is not the Create Line by Side Shot command.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Point Table With Screen Picked Points

Mar 15, 2012

I'm working with both Carlson 2012 and Civil 3d 2012 so this could apply to either one.

I have a set of caissons that were shot on separate days, and they started in the middle when they shot them in. I wanted to create a coordinate table, with the points listed from the northernmost point to the southernmost point. I had thought there might be a way to create a table with dynamic input, where I could pick the points as I go along and have the information entered as I pick.

Is there any way to renumber the points via drawing a polyline connecting them, starting with the one I want as #1 and ending with the last one?

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 :: Point Shift On Convert Land Desktop Points?

Nov 26, 2012

I had inserted a Land Desktop drawing containing points in to a C3D 2012 drawing. There was a small difference in coordinates. I used Autocad move and rotate to adjust. This was fine because I only needed a visual reference. Now someone wants the information and I need to convert the Aecc points to Civil cogo points.

The problem is that the convertldtpoints command doesn't use the location of the point marker as the coordinates for the converted points. It uses the Northing-Easting stored in the AECC_Point object. Those are the pre-adjustment coordinates.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Import Point Data For Each Point Includes Hyperlink

Jan 17, 2013

I have a database of points I am trying to import, and the point data for each point includes a hyperlink.  I've created a set of custom User-Defined Property Classifications for all the data types in the point database, and I've created a point file format to use to import the points. 

It's a database of existing curb ramps, the data includes things like widths, slopes, some text, and a hyperlink to the Google Streetview at each ramp.  I've created a custom point label that will show the data I need to see at each ramp.

All goes great except that the import fails because of the hyperlinks.  I've tested it by removing the hyperlinks from a small test portion of the data set, and the test points are then successfully imported.  I suppose I can delete the hyperlinks from the entire database, but if there is a way to include the hyperlinks in the point import I would prefer that.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Set Default Point Style For Point Groups

How to set a default point style for point groups?  Whenever I import survey points, I always put them into their own point group, so I can display each day's worth of survey data differently.  For some reason, the point style always defaults to a certain style (our control point symbol).  I'd like it to default to Basic, so I don't have to change this every time.  Is it a template drawing setting somewhere?
