AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Assign Offset To Point Identifiers?

Nov 27, 2012

When I import my points (.txt), all of the points go to whatever layer is current.  They don't go into their repective layers anymore.

Also, for surface, the surface doesn't even show up now.  This is the 1st time with this problem too.  I created the surface, assigned the point group and still no contours. 

Also, out of curiosity, during the point import stage....what is "assign offset to point identifiers"?  does this mean, if points are right on top of each other, it will be automatically offset to read?

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 :: Add Station And Offset To A Point

Jan 7, 2013

I currently have a drawing with a road alignment and stationing.  Is there a way to automatically station and offset a point that is not on the alignment line?  

For instance, our alignment line is the centerline of the road.  I need a station and offset of the new right of way line points at different places in the drawing.  I want to use the alignment stationing to have it automatically create the station and offset at the point I choose.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Import Point File And Assign Elevation Based On Existing Surface

Apr 12, 2012

I have a bunch (hundreds, so manual input not an option) of X,Y points without elevation data that I would like to import into a DWG and assign an elevation that is based on an existing surface object.  Is there a way to do this for a point file? The command for inserting individual points would be the "Create points - Surface > Random" but I don't see a way to do this in a batch type method where i have my PNE formatted input file to just move the points to sit on the existing surface.

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 :: Create Station-offset Label Style That Will Drop Trailing Zeros In Offset?

May 14, 2012

I am trying to create a station-offset label style that will drop the trailing zeros in the offset section - e.g. 15' instead of 15.00', but if the offset is not at a whole number, e.g. 15.01, etc.  it will display the entire offset.

I created two expressions:  IF(OFFSET-TRUNC(OFFSET)=0,.1/12,.00000001/12)

and this one:  IF(OFFSET-TRUNC(OFFSET)!=0,.1/12,.00000001/12)

I then created two offset components, one called truncated, and one called full, and assigned the heights to match the expressions. 

I have attached the file, the style is ACHD-Sta Off-Rt [copy]

I know it can be done but have had little luck finding how.  I need to Convert GIS features to an engineering friendly cad file and I'm stumped at the point of assigning blocks to the points. 

Also another issue is that I would often need to assign those blocks based on field values.  Noob questions I know but it's my one critical step I've not sorted out.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Re-lettering View Identifiers

Jan 3, 2013

I'm making a drawing in Inventor and I have several views and details and sections. Throughout making the drawing, I've created and deleted views. Whenever I do this, say the first view I placed was 'L', and then I delete view 'L', and make a new view. Inventor automatically labels this view 'M' instead of 'L', even though I don't have an 'L' view. This has caused me to have big gaps in the lettering of my views. Is there a way to "reset" the lettering so Inventor goes back through and re-letters everything starting from 'A'?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Assign Subassembly To Certain Station Range?

Jul 10, 2012

I have a sidewalk project with 5' wide sidewalk and the edge of sidewalk is 5' of the back of curb.  All is fine and well, I have link slope to surface subassembly assigned to one side and a link offset and slope subassembly to the other side of the sidewalk.  Everything daylights nicely.

Here is the link slope to surface subassembly is an 8:1 slope to tie into the existing surface model.  There is one stretch of sidewalk where I have a retaining wall behind the sidewalk for about 15'.  My section views are every 10' and in one of them the wall needs to show up.  I could use the link vertcial sub assembly in this area but I am not sure how to use a specific subassembly in one area.  Do I split that region up in my corridor, create a new region to use that references a new assembly to use in that 15' strectch which would contain the link vertical subassembly?  Or, do I create the link vertcial  subassembly in my current assembly and assign a station range to it so it doesn't show up throughout the entire corridor?  It's like I wante to transition in and back out of a subassembly.  Incidentally, I have one assembly used for the entire length of my project.

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?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Unable To Assign Coordinate System When Importing LAS Files

Aug 8, 2012

I have been trying to import LAS files via Civil 3D 2011.

To do this I first turn the workspace to ''Tool based geospatial''. Then i assign a global coordinate system which is the same one as the LAS file i am importing. The in the task pane window (command: mapwspace) under display manager tab i right click on map base --> data --> add point cloud data --> create new index and then choose the file I want to import. Here i have some trouble; in the create new index window i am unable to assign a coordinate system, i can find the one i need but i cant select it (or any other), it persists on staying unselected. I am able to create an index without a coordinate system but I need it with the right coordinates.
