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 :: 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 :: Numbers Of Points Added To A Surface From Point Cloud?

Jan 7, 2013

I know that there is a limitation on the numbers of points added to a surface from a point cloud.  But I'm curious how Civil 3D determines which points to exclude from the surface.  Is there a special alorithm/criteria the software uses?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Assign Elevation To Cogo Points By Snapping To Entities?

Jun 17, 2013

Can you manually create a new cogo point and have it pick up the elevation from a 3D entity that you snap to?

I found this thread from 2010 that says no at that time.


Is this still not possible with C3D 2013?

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 Use The Same Point Numbers

Feb 19, 2013

I have several lifts of dirt. I have 50 shots on each lift, but the shots on each lift are in different locations. I have been told to have each lift on a seperate layout and each layout list each shot starting at 1. Is there a way I can show Lift 1 with point numbers 1-50 and Lift 2 with point numbers 1-50 in the same dwg?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Get A List Of Available Point Numbers?

Feb 26, 2013

I just had an internal request for this and I had to look it up. So I'll share what I found and have a place to find it myself next time.
One way to do it is to select a COGO point to bring up the COGO Point Contextual menu tab. In COGO Point Tools you can select List Available Point Numbers.

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 :: 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.

I have set the default style for the drawing to a certain style by going to toolspace - settings and right clicking on point and clicking on edit feature settings ...under default styles i set it to the one I want for both point style and point label come when I create a few manual points and then go to the prospector tab and right click on _all points, the point label style is not set to the default one I set it to as I described above? The points are not coming in the way I want them to?

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?

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 :: 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 Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Adding Numbers In Sequence Underneath Dimension Lines

Apr 16, 2012

I have an opportunity to make a good impression at a new job, but ive never had the initiative to learn how to write a lisp routine. at my work we make walk-in coolers and freezers. these coolers are modular with a standard wall piece measuring a certain length. these wall sections have to be numbered sequentially. is there any way to automate this? sometimes we get change order from the client and it means going back and manually changing multiple texts (sometimes in the hundreds), but i thought if there was a way these wall sections could be scheduled somehow that when a new wall panel is inserted in the beginning of the sequence it would update everything after it automatically.

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 :: Inserting A Block Deletes Points With Point Style With Same Block

Oct 16, 2013

We're using C3D 2013 SP2.  The survey company we use uses point styles to show the blocks.  Say they shoot a catchbasin.  Instead of inserting the block, the point shows up as the block.

I did a field check & needed to insert a missed CB.  When I inserted the block, the other points that were CBs disappeared.  I had to insert the block, copy it the clipboard, undo the insertion & then paste the block in.  It did this on other drawings & other blocks.
