I did surveying with total station and i have recorded
Northing Easting Elevation
so how will these be COGO points. I need to create a surface thereafter. iIm struck here.
Please reply ASAP.
follow these steps:
It's the standard procedure, so I don't know if that answers you question

Thanks for the reply.
but please when we build a surface using these surveyed points how to use that surface in Water CAD. ?
I'm attaching a file of some points. Please if you can create me a surface. That would be greatful.
a few questions:
And looking to your file you should have the choice to use the predefined import-format PENZ (space delimited) to create a surface from these points.
Please find attached a short video showing the workflow to get a surface from your points. It is done with German Civil3D 2013, but the positions of the menus are the same in English version, so I hope it's a help for you.

As far as using the surface with WaterCAD, you should find out what type of files WaterCAD can import to use as a surface. Once we know that, we can tell you how to get one of those file types. Most likely (hopefully) WaterCAD can use a LandXML file. If it can, simply right click on the surface name in the Prospector and export it to a LandXML file and then import that into WaterCAD. If it needs a different format, we'll have to figure something out.
I dont find any DGM layer in auto cad civil 3D 2011. Please could you help me find it.
BTW watercad accepts DXF files so please attach that surface you have made if u can.
so please attach that surface you have made if u can.
This isn't that kind of group. You're not likely to get someone here to do your work for you. Ask your questions and we'll do our best to answer and gude you, but you should expect to create the surface yourself.

As Brian already mentioned you don't find DGM because you don't have the German version. What is DGM in my video is "Surface" on your UI (in the prospector exactly that option that you had already selected when you did your screenshot).
There you have to right-click ==> "Add" .... and so on (following more the positions I used in submenus than the menu-names).
I attach here a DXF containing 3D-Faces and contour lines, but I guess whatever is in it might not work for you as:
