Thanks for all the help guys and sorry for the late responses, been a hell of a few months here.
Surveyor Lee, I have that exact same problem. I've been scratching my brain trying to eliminate the elevations on point data when I import points. How did you manage to do that?
You will need to change the point style to reflect flattening them to elevation 0...
I agree Todd, set the point style to insert the point objects at z=0. This will not effect the elev shot.
Thanks Todd, I think that might just work. One quick question: If I reinserted points into a drawing with this point, would that flatting of the elevations fix whatever issues were present?
Currently I'm working on a project and turning angles from the radius point, the angles come out shorter than the data I put in (turn an angle of 4 degrees 13 minutes, when dimensioned it reads 4 degrees 7 minutes 48 seconds), but this drawing was having the z-axis issues before flattening the elevations.
It should if you Overwrite points instead of Renumber points.
Okay, I reinserted and still no change. I've attached an image to show the skew where I'm trying to do a perpindicular dimension from the point to the purple line, and it is a different angle of skew for each point.
Could this be because I'm rotating the point file as a whole to match a plat bearing?
Rotating the points should not be affecting this. It would be a lot easier for us to help if you could post a dwg.
The line you are snapping to, is there another line under it? Acad does not like overlapping objects.
Sorry about that, wasn't sure what would be helpful. The full drawing file is attached. As far as the line, it is the only one there.
Thanks for everyone's help!
Where is the dim line you are trying to get perpindicular?
