Creating Points according to elevation

224 Views, 3 Replies

Hello all,

 

I have a number of 3D polylines that where exported from SDF previously created. They have numerous vertices, each one with a given elevation.

 

Could someone help me by tellling me how can i create/highlight the higher and/or lower point in each 3D polyline??

 

A different solution would be automatically breaking these polylines in slope changing points (i.e. high or low points).

 

I understand that i can create points according to slope or elevation, but it has to be done manually, each poly at a time, and by tipping numeric values that i am sure that a powerfull software (as Civil 3D is) is able to calculate using the drawing information.

 

Thank you very much in advance by your help.

You could create points on the polyline then sort the point list by elevation.
