I don't see a .txt file anywhere attached to this thread.
I just tested this method, and it work great on import, but does not export the attribute. What would be the cause of that? I only have one attribute field that sometime has data and sometimes does not, however I want to export it with the data. It appears to be a bug.
*****After looking into this a little further, If you use the Survey Database for import then the Name of the UDP Classification must read Survey User-Defined - as on import that is the name the SDB adds to the Drawing in the UDP list, but still calls it ATT1. So I removed my UDP defined as Attribute and then redifined my format and selected the ATT1 again and all imported as expected.******
Hopefully that will help the next person.
Hi Todd, Thanks for your nice response and wonderful results for showing the concentrations of Arsenic, Lead and Mercury in my CDC8ptsPENZDforC3D 2D drawing. I will try to mimic your technique to reproduce the results in the 3D Wireframe later. I have some problems in creating the 2D & 3D Wireframe of my CDC8ptsPENZDfroC3D drawing from my data input .txt file: Problem #1: When I created the 2D Wireframe CDC8ptsPENZDforC3D.dwg from my txt file, I did not get the 3D Rotation Cube, Full Navigation Wheel, Zoom to Extents, Orbit, etc. in the right-hand-side of the MAP!! What Commands should I use to bring the 3D Rotation Cube, Full Navigation Wheel, Zoom to Extens, Orbit, etc. out to the screen? Problem #2: If you clicked on the [-] next to the [Top] [2D Wireframe], I got the 4-port screen - see the attached file. I use the "Orbit" button on the main port (left-upper port) to separate the 2 depths of the each location nicely. But I cannot get it in the full screen!! How can I get the full screen of 3D Wireframe to show the nice separation of 2 depths of the each location? Please help me in resolving these 2 problems, and respond again.
Many Thanks again,
I studied your video "Adding Attributes to Your Point Label Style" (using PNEZD in csv for extended Description) and your results for my 8 points (4 locations with 2 depths in each location) very hard. I gained a great deal of knowlege from your techniques/methods of using PNEZD to have extended Descriptions for Adding Attributes to the Point Label Style. But I still have the following technical things to ask you: (1) Did you make up your 10 .csv files prior to the executing of Adding Attributes to your Point Label Style via PNEZD? (2) In your results for my 8 points, you added the attribute "Additional" to the "User-Defined Property Classifications" with 2 ATTs (ATT1 & ATT2). Are these 2 ATTs (ATT1 & ATT2) created from my jayCDC8ptsPENZDforC3D.txt (my attachment-0)? How did you create ATT1 and ATT2? What format of ATT1 and ATT2 did you use? (3) In your video, you copied ATT1, ATT2,...., ATT10 to your points, etc. Could you please explain why you did these spets to get the Point Labels you wanted? Your method for adding Attributes to the Point Label Style is very good and complicated, but hard to master/execute it in the second part completly. Please kindly help, answer and clarify my above-mentioned things.
Many Thinks in advance,
P. S. I used ArcGIS for my sampling locations with 2 depths for each location for the Spatial input and my chemical data for the non-spatial input in .xls/.xlsx file. Then I did the "Join" operation to combine the 2 inputs for extracting the meaningfull data. The 3D input data of ArcGIS are projected into the 2D plane - 2 depths of the same XY-coordinates are projected into the 1 single point on the 2D plane. This is the reason for me to try to use the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 for getting the better view of the 2 depths of the same XY-coord./location. I feel that Point File Formats of AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 is very hard to use: (1) ENZ, NEZ, PENZ, PENZD, PNE, PNEZ, and PNEZD are too mystical for the new users to know and employ (I cannot find the specifications of these formats!!). (2) the Settings of Toolspace are very hard to learn, and (3) To annotate the 3D points in the Civil 3D 2013 is difficult to achieve.
(1) Did you make up your 10 .csv files prior to the executing of Adding Attributes to your Point Label Style via PNEZD? Yes. You can't read them in the label style until they are created in the User-Defined Property Classification.
(2) In your results for my 8 points, you added the attribute "Additional" to the "User-Defined Property Classifications" with 2 ATTs (ATT1 & ATT2). Are these 2 ATTs (ATT1 & ATT2) created from my jayCDC8ptsPENZDforC3D.txt (my attachment-0)? How did you create ATT1 and ATT2? What format of ATT1 and ATT2 did you use? All I did was create the User-Defined Property, added 2 fields called ATT1 and ATT2. You can name these anything you want. I only created 2 because the PENZD file read the first one as the D in PENZD.
(3) In your video, you copied ATT1, ATT2,...., ATT10 to your points, etc. Could you please explain why you did these spets to get the Point Labels you wanted? I'm not sure what you are asking here.
Hi Todd, Thanks for your response.
In my original txt file of my input data, I had the concentrations of Arsenic, Lead and Mercyry. But the "Points from File" just brought the concentration of Arsenic in the Raw Description/Full Description in the _All Points. So, you wanted to create ATT1 and ATT2 of the Attribute "Aditional" for the Point Label Style of my 8point project. Am I right in this guessing?
I am lost in knowing the contents of ATT1, ATT2, ..., Att10 in youre video, when you were doing the following:
Point File Format => Format Name: PNEZD (user-defined) with copy was changed by you to PNEZD (user-defined) with Attributes. etc. ...20535 Rhodes-Neller Points.csv that was filled with ATT1, ATT2, ...,ATT10 is the new input data for creating your Points. Right?
Similarly, I don't know how the txt file of my original PENZD input file should be modified with the ATT1 and ATT2 of the Attribute "Addtional" in the Point File Format. This is about the (3) in my last thread.
Please kindly help, clarify and respond again.
The ATT1...etc, are just arbitrary names. You can name them mercury arsenic and lead if you want to. The contents of the ATT1, etc. are just extra columns that the surveyor put in.
In the DWG of my "8 points" project, Raw Descriptin/Full Description has the concentration of Arsenic already. I think that ATT1 and ATT2 of the Attribute "Additional" you added are for the concentrations of Lead and Mercury respectively. Am I right in this guessing? Please answer this matter and respond again.
You are correct.
