Your report displays a bearing as S 14-42-4.233 W You want to change the format to S 14° 42′ 04″ W
To correct the bearing format make changes to this file C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\C3D 2017\enu\Data\Reports\xsl\General_Formating_JScript.xsl
Edited Line 216 to correct formatting of function formatAngleToDMS(angle)
Change this on line 216 return degrees + “-” + minutes + “-” + seconds; to this return degrees + “° ” + minutes + “‘ ” + seconds + “””;
The distance precision is set in the Report Settings as you would expect. The Report Settings has no control for angular precision. You want control over angular precision so continue editing General_Formatting_JScript.xls. Line 16 controls the precision of the angle’s seconds. A value of 2 means 100ths of a second will be displayed.
You have MTEXT in your drawing that represents spot elevations. You would like COGO Points instead. Use the DATAEXTRACTION command to create a .csv file. With a little editing in Excel you can create a NEZ.csv file. Import Points from File using the NEZ format.
The Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2016 Productivity Pack 3 provides a collection of new capabilities for Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2016 users. Survey and mapping professionals can leverage the new Traverse Editor to create points, lines, and curves representing traverse legs and sideshots using a broad set of COGO input and editing tools. They can also leverage the new Traverse Adjustment workflow to perform traverse adjustment and generate reports using Compass, Transit, Crandall, and Grant Line adjustment methods.
My first comments.
Civil 3D 2016 PP3 Traverse Editor testing Sent suggestions through help system
Angle column should be labeled Direction
Radial column label should also imply direction if that is the expected value
Help should show an example of direction data entry syntax quad..dd.mmss
At the FSMS Manasota Chapter meeting 2016-05-04 I answered a few Civil 3D questions that may be helpful to others.
Q. Scott had a tool tip stick to his screen running AutoCAD Map 3D on a Dell Laptop. A. I had the same problem. Try updating your video driver.
Q. Dave asked about what to do with dwf files. A. Use them as an xref. You can snap to the geometry
Q. Kavin asked how to get Civil 3D to display DMS instead of DecDeg. A. Edit the Drawing Settings > Ambient Settings (tab) and edit the Direction format to correctly display Bearings. Edit the Angle format to display Central Angle and Degree of Curvature labels in DMS format instead of decimal degrees.
Problem: I have DTEXT in a title block. I edit the text and it disappears. Regen gets it back but you cannot do anything with the text afterward.
Solution: Change the TEXTED system variable to 1. This changes the editor to the old style editor. Wait for a service pack to fix this bug. Run AUDIT on the drawing. If the TEXTED variable is already set to 1 an AUDIT seemed to correct the problem if it persists.
The image shows a Profile View in Civil 3D 2011 with AutoCAD solids projected. I chose not to do a vertical exaggeration but you can correctly display vertically exaggerated AutoCAD solids in a profile view. The real sizzle here is slicing through a point cloud and having it displayed in the profile view. Unfortunately, plotting does not include this point cloud data
