Dear sir,

How shall I draw  lines into a created surface using raw or full description of ascii file format(COGO)

for example in the imported  file ihave points to describe a road centre line(CL),or edge of the road(ERD),breaklines(BRKL) and want lines represented by the descriptions to be drawed in the surface  so that i can use the lines as guides in profiles design.I didn't want to use point number which are not serially ,and have tried to use point grouping without any success

The attached file could be of good use

That Txt file does not contain descriptions. Also, it the description are not set up properly when collected it will be more difficult. See This and This.

 

You may be able to separate them into groups and draw lines by group entering G for group. I can't test that right now.

I wrote a lisp to do what I think you need a number of years ago. It would need some updating to work with newer versions, but there is plenty of information on the C3D customization forum that shows how to do that. OLD LISP LINK
