Correct Stake Tool (Z) input method?

Recommended Posts

I'm inputting cntl points from a cad file ( autodesk civil 3d export) I got from a client.


It was unfortunately 2D points with the elevation called out.


So I'm going around and typing in the elevation (101.09, 100.60,  98.64, etc) -  it seems like I'm missing something.


I have set my document units to digital feet to match the DWG


I still find myself having to:

  • click to set a stake-
  • then move my pointer up to the elevation box on the tool bar-
  • click there-
  • type the elevation-
  • then move back to set the next stake-
  • repeat ad infinitum...



I tried hitting tab thinking it would give me a (Z) option - but I'm only getting (X),(Y), (L), and (A).



What it's the correct, quick, and clean workflow for adding stakes for creating a site model?
