I have been using the "LIST" command to get coordinates of a point. The list can be as long as my monitor is high. I need to copy the coordinates of about 3 000 points to a microsoft Word file to manipulate with them.
The "LIST" command would show me about 4 points after which i have to press "ENTER" to get the next ones, but this is obviously pointless. (hehe).
How could i get the coordinates of very many points to a text file all at once?
Thank you in advace!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Are you asking about Civil Points or vanilla AutoCAD Points as the methods are different?
I am very sorry i messed something up since i am learning the CIVIL 3D at the moment.
My problem is as follows (i attached a little screenshot as well)
I have a 2D drawing of a landscape. The drawing contains (i just discovered) not POINTS, but ordinary circles with elevation number written next to them.
I know exactly how far is the elevation-text from each circle. The circles contain the X and Y coordinates only but the Z coordinate is written as text.
What i was trying to achieve, was:
That way i should be able to construct a 3D version of the same landscape.
But i dont know how to get all the info from all the elevation-texts at once to copy it all to Word for filtering. The "list" command only shows me as much as fits on the screen and tells me to press enter to continue the list, but if i have many "points", it takes awefully long time and i guessed there has to be an easier way.
I guess it is still not actually a CIVIL 3D problem but just vanilla AutoCAD. But i am trying to do it all in Civil 3D
Should i take the problem to a another subforum then?
Thank you for all your answers!
I see now...
Assuming all the text values have the same offset (X,Y) from the required point then do the following
Quick select all the text
Move the selected text so that the insertion point snaps to the point node
Then, after creating a new surface, Modify > Add Data > Drawing Objects > Text
That should create the surface for you
Sir, i thank you much for every single point on my just created surface! This was 1000 times faster than the way i was going to do it.
