When working with mulitple building pads and configurations change rapidly. Is there a method to add a Block or Xref into a Civil3D Surface under Drawing Objects? If so, how could you do it.
I want to have a building block type 1 that I can update the block or xref then updates the surface rather than doing each one individually.
The Block would have a FFE of 0.00 and then the stoops, etc would either be a 0.1 drop or so.
I usually just xref the file that shows the buildings and then trace a feature line around with the osnaps on to get accuracy. not sure if a dedicated reference file or block is going to improve the process or not.
If you have a block of the building you can get the x-y location set and then use the Move Blocks to Surface command. Perhaps you can edit the blocks insertion point to get the .1 drop automatically.
I suppose with the block approach you could redefine the block each time it was changed. It should still hold the z edits and stay in place assuming someone (whomever supplies the new edited block) can keep the same coordinate system with each change. LOL I know many an architect that cannot.
