Hi, I'm pretty new to AutoCAD, and I was wondering how I would go about adding contour lines to a map? I entered roughly 200 points (x, y, and z values) into an x-y plane on AutoCAD and figured that if I were to add contour lines (1' elevation difference), it would rely on the z axis. In short: how do I add contour lines if the points are all plotted? Thanks in advance!
plain autocad cant do that, but i am sure there are some lisp routines that can create contours (sorry but i dont have one). the best program to use is land desktop or civil3d.
Thank you for that information... is it possible to somehow open the current .dwg file in Civil 3D? If so, then where would I have to go from there? Thanks again.

Get trial for a month and go to Youtube to find a tutorial how to import points, TIN, add breaklines then contours.
