Surveying: Drawing lines from Robot to Radial shots...

Hi Everybody,

 

I am wanting to draw lines from gun setup to the backsight, and then from the gun to all the radial shots that were taken from that setup. I would like to do this as automatically as possible. (i.e. a bunch of radial lines from the gun to each individual shot from that setup).

 

Our raw files are in TDS format.  I could do it manually by using the transparent command 'PN, but I would have to draw a line from the setup to the shots individually.

 

Otherwise, I could write a lisp that asks me for the setup pt number, and I could give it a range ot pt #'s and have it draw lines from the gun to each of the pts in the range. (that is, if 'PN works in lisp).

 

Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

 

Thanks,
Steve

You could convert RAW data to field book file (FBK) then import through survey database, this would draw the lines from the gun to the shots. Being civil3d there is of course a style associated with this, under Prospector, under Setting tab, under Survey, this is a Network style.
