Running C3d 2012 here, but haven't used prior versions. I'm using fieldbooks to import survey data. If there is an error of some kind and I "Re-import event" for the fieldbook, then the occupied points from the field book are deleted out of the survey database and I get the resulting error of "point invalid" during the import. My fix is to go into my control drawing and import the control points from the drawing into the survey database then run the "re-import" again.
Kind of a pain to go through, and potentially disastrous. But maybe I'm missing something obvious? Any ideas?
Thanks for any feedback.
I just switched to 2012 from 2010 and discovered this. 2010 did not do behave this way. I'm really not happy about it, especially since your post was in January and nobody has posted anything. This is the kind of thing that makes people hate the survey database and not use it.
Remember that the FBK file already containes the control point data, so it would need to delete the control point in the file along with the rest of the points if your deleting the FBK file from the database, its just part of the FBK file.
One option you can use it to upload the control separately and number the points off by a series, this way you can check the survey control vs. the office control.
Hope this helps.
The control points are not contained in a fieldbook. The only information in it is sattion and back sight. The point information is in the survey database from the traverse.
In C3D 2010 and earlier releases (and LDD/LDT) the OP/BS lines did not cause control to be deleted on re-import. I have tried to explain this to Autodesk on multiple occaisions and received extremly unsatisfying responses. The fact is, it used to work as it should and was broken either in 2011 or 2012.
To anyone reading this thread that has this problem, I strongly suggest you report it to Autodesk either through the product feedback or subscripton center. The only way this will get fixed is if enought attention is directed torwards it.
Sorry about the blank post......I just want to mention that I have sent a resquest on this topic through the subscription centre as well.
Try this work-around for the problem. Create a separate Network for the control file and each fieldbook file. This should prevent the control points from being deleted.
