I am trying to have a block scaled on import baised on the elevation of the point. I already use description key sets to scale blocks in import to parameters added to the code libary, for example; "Pole 0.31" draws a circle with a diameter of .31 meters.
Is there a way where I would be able to scale a block on import based on the elevation of the object? For example, a point's elevation is 1.7m, so on import it would scale a block by 1.7 on the x/y axis. Ideally if I were to modify the datum of the points the blocks would automatically scale, but that is more of a pipe dream.
We import the data from a trimble r8 rover and convert the file to a FBK file before importing the survey data.
In excel you can use the & symbol to combine cells of text together. If you want to look it up in the help file it is refered to as concatenate
Good idea, I am writing an excel tool now to format the data. A bit of a pain, but beats manually scalling the blocks as I do now. I was hoping that civil would allow the elevation to be a paramiter, oh well.
Thanks for the quick response and the help!
