I keep getting a fatal error and having autocad crash when I try to convert Autocad Points.
Has this happened to anyone else?
The only thing that is an Autocad point is the little red dot that is centeedr in the red circle. You need to isolate these red dots and select them. The red circle is an individual block and all the text is in one individual block (For one point).
Don't worry about the Map features at this point.
Having seen what is in my drawing, how would you import or add or convert them to make a surface or 3D model?
I want to use the information in the drawing to make a surface to add a berm and other Civil objects, but not sure how.
Create a surface. Right-click this surface in prospector, choose properties. Set the style to what you wnat to see, then select the Definition Tab. Under the Build options, toggle on "Exclude elevations less than" and set that to 2000 (some of the points previously selected are at 0 elevation, you don't want these in your surface.
Select one of the Point objects (not the blocks, the little dot inside the circle), right-click, SelectSimilar. Type in SELECT at the command line.
In Propsector, select the surface you created, expand it, then expand Definition. Select DrawingObjects, right-click, choose Points, when prompted to select points, enter P for previous which will select the points you selected above.
You should now have your surface displayed. You may want to add a boundary, or when you select the points remove those that lie far away from the site.
