VBA question creating C3D points

Hi this code below does place the 3 points but does not convert the ACAD points, does anyone knows what is wrong ?

THX !!!

Option Explicit
'
' This sample is dependent on EG.xml
' because the points are located on top of surface.
' Use Add point groups from the treeview UI to see
' the result of a point getting build into the surface.
'
Public Function createPointsPointGroups() As Boolean
On Error Resume Next

If getCivilObjects = False Then
createPointsPointGroups = False
Exit Function
End If
Dim oPoints As AeccPoints
Set oPoints = g_oAeccDoc.Points
Dim oPoint1 As AeccPoint
Dim oPoint2 As AeccPoint
Dim oPoint3 As AeccPoint

Dim elem As Object
Dim found As Boolean
Dim pt(0 To 2) As Double

'Debug.Print "OK1"
' Cycle through the entities in modelspace
For Each elem In ThisDrawing.ModelSpace
With elem
If (.EntityName = "Point") Then
' Change the height of the text entity
pt(0) = elem.X
pt(1) = elem.Y
pt(2) = elem.Z

Set oPoint2 = oPoints.Add(pt)
oPoint2.Name = "Gpoint"
oPoint2.LabelStyle = g_oAeccDoc.PointLabelStyles.Item(0)
' Debug.Print "OK"

' .Update
found = True
End If
End With
Set elem = Nothing
Next elem


Dim pt1(0 To 2) As Double
Dim pt2(0 To 2) As Double
Dim pt3(0 To 2) As Double
pt1(0) = 4958: pt1(1) = 4078
pt2(0) = 5507: pt2(1) = 3176

' Dim oPoints As AeccPoints

If oPoint1 Is Nothing Then
Set oPoint1 = oPoints.Add(pt1)
oPoint1.Name = "point1"
oPoint1.LabelStyle = g_oAeccDoc.PointLabelStyles.Item(0)
End If
Debug.Print oPoint1.RawDescription
Debug.Print oPoint1.FullDescription

End With

Next elem




Dim oPtGroups As AeccPointGroups
Dim oPtGroup As AeccPointGroup

Exit Function
End If

End If

'
If oPtGroup.ContainsPoint(oPoint1.Number) = False Then
Debug.Print "No points are contained in the point group."
End If
