AutoCAD-AutoDeskLand survey

Create a bearing box with AutoCAD Civil 3D

I remember talking about how long ago Do this with Softdesk, we also saw some juggling to do the reverse from Of a built table In Excel.

Civil autocad plot 3d In this case I will do it with AutoCAD Civil 3D, which is the union of AutoCAD Map and AutoCAD Civil 3D. By the way, the environment is very Land style, so what we knew about CivilCAD is not very useful here.

In the left menu environment you can choose the functionalities, In this case I have enabled Civil 3D Complete to be able to see all the menus but it is possible to see different environments of topography, design, Geospatial etc.

I have this property, which I have raised in the field, now what I want is to create the picture of bearings and distances.

Civil autocad plot 3d1. Create the parcel

For this we do "parcels / Create Parcel from Objects"

Then we select all the lines of the traverse (they are not like polyline)

Then the system displays a panel where you must choose the site, style, layers where the properties of the line and centroid and other bitter herbs will be stored ...

From here I select that automatically I put the labels (labels) to the segments.

Remove the option to delete the original polygon.

Then we do 0k, it should automatically be placed in a centroid where the plot area is contained.

2. Creating the Driving Chart

Civil autocad plot 3d For this we do "Parcel / ad tables / line", which means to make the table of bearings and distances from the lines.

The panel that comes out asks the style that we will apply and if we want the table to be static or dynamic (change the agreement, the boundaries are changed)

Then just click where we want it.

3. Edit table style

Civil autocad plot 3d

The table style can be edited, right-click on the generated table and choosing "edit table style"


And here you can change the names of the table, headers, decimals in the length and format of angles.
