Convert Elevation Values to Z Values

Draftsman for a Surveying company using Autodesk Land Desktop 2006 here,


I'm trying to convert imported points with Northing, Easting, and Elevation values to their respective locations in the 3d planes. The points always end up on the same 0 Z plane. I want their locations in the Z direction to reflect thier Elevation values. I've tried changing a couple of the import settings but nothing seems to change. Is this even possible? If so how do I go about doing this?


Any assistance in this matter would be Greatly appreciated.

I finally figured it out. I had to display the point display properties and reset the elevation to it's actual elevation.
