In this post I want to show you that exchanging data between Civil 3D and Carlson Survey is relatively easy. I made two posts today about transferring data using LandXML. Additionally, in this blog post at Carlson Connection you will find that working with Civil 3D data in Carlson/IntelliCAD is not such an impossible chore. Carlson Survey for example has a command to convert a Civil 3D or Land Desktop surface to a Carlson TIN file.
A quick presentation of transferring points and a surface model from Carlson Survey to Civil 3D using LandXML.
Note: In the last part of the video the presenter edits an existing surface style making it look harder that it actually is. A style to display contours is already defined in Civil 3D’s drawing template you simply change the style from a drop-down list in the surface properties instead of digging into the guts of an existing style to change settings.
Point Label Style Dragged State with the leader attached to the wrong side of the label.
You are working in Civil 3D. You grip a point, drag the label, get a leader, it all looks good until you drag the label to the left side of the point. In this post we will follow the steps necessary to edit the point label style to get the leader to look right on both sides of the point marker.
