ok forget making a tool, just need a way to "link" a coordinate to a text object like the way we link text to record. then i can make my own "tool"

also we should be able to "link" any information to a text from any readout in the OIP or IFC, database, notes etc

Doesn't the Stake Object show coordinates as described? Stake objects can show the world EN if the design layer is georeferenced.

+1 for access/linking to data fields in OIP and tool pref fields, etc.

The problem is that the stake object is a hybrid object, thus not showing the coordinates while in 3D view...

I disagree

How did you get them on the 3D plane ??? I've tried everything without result.

Also, I don't have the mode "show as 2D graphic only" which probably makes it work for you. I can't get rid of the 3D locus, thus it remains hybrid.

EDIT, found it. Badly badly translated into Dutch.

Submitting this now, the main immediate issue here is that not all users have access to the Benchmark/Stake object tools, I think they're only in Architect and Landmark by default depending on the localization.

Submitting a separate request for linking coordinates (well, really any data values) directly to text. From what I understand you can sort of do this now in a few cases, but it isn't ubiquitous.

Wish extensions for stake objet:

•Color fill option in the data area

•User customization of target.

Also

I'm not sure what happens to 3d z value if layer is georeferenced. Does the z direction project up from center of earth's spheroid? or perpendicular to a flat ground plane? Not much difference over 30 feet, but there could be a difference in a really tall structure or varied terrain.

this took a day to figure out with help from Extensio Pro plug in

i know its a bit over kill but i wanted ONE marker and did not want to fuss with orientation of text. which was killing me earlier today.

How did you make that marker digitalmechanics? You mentioned the Extensio Pro Plug-in earlier but that is for piping as far as I can see.

We offer 2 packages, Extensio and Extensio Pro.

The object he used is the SymbolObject, which is present in both bundles.

You can find more about it here .
