AutoCAD-AutoDeskLand survey

From Excel to AutoCAD, easier never

We had already talked about this topic before, what's more, we had hI give a summary Of the best, but I could not avoid the temptation to speak of a super simple version that uploaded a user to the Cartesian forum precisely today.

It is a simple Excel sheet with columns to enter the data, point name and xyz coordinates, ideal for handling points raised with total station that are in a txt separated by commas. As always, having macros requires that they be enabled.

It is possible to set some basic parameters such as colors, text size, if elevation is considered.

The simple thing about this application is that it sends the data directly as an Ole object, so you only have to have AutoCAD open, any version and the point mesh is built. Create points, codes and texts in a separate layer.

Requires to make a complete view to visualize them all, the points go with their z and the texts stay in elevation 0.

Very interesting, even the code is not protected so you can learn how they built it.

I tested it with the data I used the other time to Construct the contour lines with AutoCAD Civil 3D and it actually works.  Go there And download it is not that you later have a password or are no longer, you need to be registered in the Cartesia forum.
