Given a feature line/polyline(FL/PL) and a series of points directly on the FL/PL, how can you assign the elevations of the points to the vertices of the FL/PL?
Without using a surface?
Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.
The easiest solution I know of without aditional tools is to export the points in xyz format to a text document.
Now Add the following lines above the first entry.
(Add return below last value to end command)
Save and rename to Scr file the in Civil3d run Script, load the file and it will draw the 3dpolyline from the points.
Convert to featureline and use normally.
It's interesting. I have 2 3rd party softwares and neither will do this that I can see. It looks like Toolpac [that I don't have] will do it.

Never needed it and never had a customer ask for it. Interestingly, the last thing Sinc asked me to add before he fell ill was a command to elevate featurelines from text/mtext (think non-C3D grading plans obtained from other engineers). It is complete but was not added to the help file or published command list. When I saw this thread I figured it would be easy enough to include points in the search for nearby objects. So I will be working on that soon.
The 2D-3D by Points in MapWorks Base has done this for a long time, working directly with FeatureLine and AeccPoint objects.
