When using the stake tool, you currently have the option to "Set Elev to Site Model" as a way of creating spot elevations for a grading plan. This is great when documenting the surface of a site model for high points and such, but often the elevation we are looking to document is actually a feature such as finish surface, top of wall, bottom of wall, etc. These items are placed on top of a site model, so a stake object trying to query their top elevation will only return the elevation of the underlying site model. There should be a way for the stake tool to recognize modeled elements in the drawing to pull this information into its reference.
I am a boundary surveyor and spend my time trying to sort out peoples problems with the location of their boundary lines. I align my surveys to the (UK) OS National Grid and if we submit the findings to the Land Registry I need to know the Eastings and Northings for each change in direction the boundary line takes. No Z coordinate, only X and Y. Using the Stake tool makes marking these changes in direction really easy, what I would like to do is create a report for each Stake instance with a number and the two coordinates in. Nothing fancy, just three columns. Try as I might I cannot find a way of doing this, is anyone out there able to help, or to suggest another way I can gather this information?
