How can I import survey points in AutoCAD Map. The points are stuctured like this (point number, easting, northing, altitude)

e.g.

52499.990.537499.983.388399.872

Command: _AECCCREATEPOINTS then choose PENZ as point type (it works for me in Map2006, I hope in your 2011 too...)

In my 2011 I get this ---

Command: _AECCCREATEPOINTS
Unknown command "AECCCREATEPOINTS".  Press F1 for help.

:smileyhappy:

 

Mapimport then select ASCII point file works, however you may need to select the points(blocks) afterwards and change the scale factor in the property palette to 1.

I don't have the option "mapimport". I just have Map Setup and no option for ASCII import file

Hi,

 

>> I don't have the option "mapimport"

Start command _MAPIMPORT, if that does not work you have either no Map3D2011 or you have an invalid AutoCAD-Profile. Type the command into the command-line press <ENTER> and let's see.

Hi,

Two options:

  • select one of the blocks, right-click ==> open in blockeditor, scale the content of the blockdefinition, close blockeditor with saving and run command _ATTSYNC one.
  • select all block-insertions, open the property-window (<Ctrl>-<1>) and set the scalefactor X/Y/Z to a value you want to have it.

It's working

Thanks!

 

Are there any options regarding scales, renumbering, modifying the elevation?

I don't know if you've heard of TopoLT, with this application you can do all of the stuff I've mentioned above.

Do you know any free lisp which does these kind of operations?
