Creates Civil Points via Command line.
Civil Points are defined in BricsCAD® as Civil entities, which are represented by symbols and labels. In addition to XYZ coordinates, Civil Points can have a variety of attributes assigned, including point number, point name, raw (field) description and full (expanded) description.
Use the Properties panel to edit the properties of an individual point or a group of selected points.
For improved organization, Civil Points can be collected into point groups based on certain criteria determined by filters.
You can use the basic BricsCAD® commands to edit Civil Points in a drawing. For example, COPY, COPYCLIP, PASTE, MOVE, ROTATE...
You can use Civil Points as input objects for creating a TIN Surface, which is automatically updated when editing points.
- Insert a single point by specifying its location in a drawing.
- Import multiple points from an ASCII point file.Note: In addition to the basic ASCII file, points can also be imported from a LandXML file using the LANDXMLIMPORT command.
