2D Topographical Survey Levels to 3D and Site Model

Recommended Posts

Hi All.

 

Can you suggest a quick way to convert 2D topo from surveyor to Site model in 2020? There are only 2D spot levels (no Z-value) with no countours in the file.

 

In 2019 we used to run a script recommended by someone clever on line, but it doesn't seem to work any longer in 2020 :/.

 

Any thoughts?

Set a stake on Known points and set elevation value to match. Make sure the stake is set to "Use as site data".

Post the script you have and a small sample file with about 10 of the spot elevation objects and perhaps we can make it work.

 

A script to take the value of a text object and create 3D loci using the text as the Z-value sounds familiar, but I can't find it in my archive right now.

I have one like that. I will try to find it and post!

Are the Objects just Text?  Is the insertion point of the text block the exact point of the elevation? Can you isolate these objects by Layer or Class?

 

Please copy and paste about 10 of these spot elevations into a blank file and post it here so we have something to work with.

Hi, are you able to post the script / file that works with 2020? It sounds like a massive time saver
