Hi Ervin, What is a drw file ? How are cogo points documented in this file ? -- Laurie Comerford CADApps www.cadapps.com.au "Ervin Battle" wrote in message news:4134e765_3@newsprd01... > Good evening, > I'm writing to find out if someone can give me an idea how to get > Land Desktop to read cogo points from a drw file.

Are you sure it's a .drw file? That file type is typically created by Pro Engineer (ProE), a Mechanical product... Unless I'm mistaken ProE can write an AutoCAD r14 or 2000 .dwg file - might give you half a chance of creating point data...the resultant points can be converted to Land Desktop point objects - if ProE IS the program used to create your file. FYI: I've seen ProE used to digitize as-builts of mechanical pieces and parts - bring the point spread into Land Desktop and use the COGO routines to "Best Fit" lines and curves and clean up the data - but it's not the prettiest of processes...right tool for the right job. Thanks for the brain tickle! sm -- scott mceachron total cad systems - dallas "Ervin Battle" wrote in message news:4134e765_3@newsprd01... > Good evening, > I'm writing to find out if someone can give me an idea how to get > Land Desktop to read cogo points from a drw file.

> get > Land Desktop to read cogo points from a drw [dwg] file. what do you mean by 'read'? Do you mean list, properties, or do you want to export the points to a file? what type of entities are in the drawing? AutoCAD points, Civil Points Objects, or Softdesk Point Blocks? If they are civil point objects, then are they in your project database? What version are you using? Russell

Thanks for the response.We're using LDD 3 and are trying to export the point information from the dwg to the project point database. They are LDD point objects.

Hi, [Points][Check Points][Modify Project] You can see the importance of asking clear questions.
