I am woring with Civil 3d '14. For some reason all of my points, even though they have assigned elevations, their nodes are at 0.00 which makes it difficult to do any soft of point grading. Does anyone know how to adjust the settings so the point node is at the elevation of the point? The image attached shows a line which was drawn from the node of one point to the node of another point. Notice the z elevation of said line. Thanks for you imput.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I was finally able to solve it!! Here is the solution incase anyone runs into this problem.
Go to the Settings tab of Toolspace, expand the Point, and expand the Point Styles node. Right-click on the Generic style and choose Edit. On the 3D Geometry tab set the Point Display Mode to Use Point Elevation and click OK. Make sure your OSNAPZ variable is set to 0 and you should be good to go.
Good work. Glad you found your answer. I'd like to clarify for future users.
The style you needed to edit was GENERIC. For future users, they may have to edit many styles. They need to edit any style that is being used in the drawing to display points.
There is another potential cause for this. If you check the Overrides tab of your Point Group there is an Elevation option there. If that is turned on then it will control.
