In the latest Professional Land Surveyor Premium Member Newsletter I wrote about “Why AutoCAD Civil 3D Points Miss the Point”. Working with Points in AutoCAD Civil 3D requires technical setup of Description Keys, Point Styles, Point Label Styles, and Point Groups. Phew!
But wait, there’s more! You also can have Survey Points in any given CAD drawing, and not in others, while maintaining Survey Points from your Survey Database across several AutoCAD Civil 3D drawings, each of which could also have Civil Points with conflicting point numbers.
So, you would think that Autodesk would make it easy, simple, and error free to manage Points across multiple project drawings and to upload and download Points from your survey data collector. If you thought that, you would be wrong.
