I'm confused. Under Feature Line Edits, there is a break feature line tool. The break points have elevations interpolated from the feature line if they occur between set points. No elevations destroyed.
Are you trying just to get a point elevation without the feature line? You'll need to create a point at that location. A feature line needs at least two points to exist.
Are you trying to split the feature line on either side of a point? I've done this by using the break tool to cut the line to the point using the end snap, then dragging the new interploated point to the original location using an end snap. The end snap will transfer the elevation to the new point.
THANKS, i was sort of hoping for the ability to click on a feature line and then a node parallel to it like you do with polylines. I have a section of curb that changes from stone to concrete and wanted to break the line to be able to put each section on its proper layer. With your technique I can do it.
I'm a little confused too. If I break a featureline and use the (F)irst Point or @ option I get 2 featurelines that meet at the point I selected. There doesn't have to be an end point there and I don't need to drag any points. An I not envisioning this correctly?
i am relatively new with Civil so pardon the simple questions but you got it. I was unaware of the ability to use a key command with the break features command. Perfect!
Glad it's working for you. No problem with the question. If you look the "in reply to" field of my last post, you'll see my comments were directed to ccoles. With the weird way they display this newsgroup in may have looked like I was replying to you.
The group is here for people to ask questions. I ask my fair share and then some. Often on learning the answer it's a case of "I should have known that!" Civil 3D is not a program you can learn in a couple of weeks. I've been at it a few years now, on and off, and I am still feel that I'm new to it.
There must be 50 ways to do many a task in AutoCAD and Civil 3D. Isn't this why we have this forum? I was shown one way, and you simply have yet another. Both work equally as well. Kudos for pointing out your way as well.

Yes. Definitely! I just wanted to know if I understood what the OP was talking about. I've replied to threads and then gone back and found I'd miss the mark.
