Everyond Please chime in your comments on the question, all adive is welcome.

  • When creating a topo from a 3D CAD file, I have noticed when create the topo, all the countours are what I would call "Sharp, or Flat" I have attached a photo to better explain my question, if you will noticed in the picture that from point to point the grades are not "exactly" smooth "or curvy". This is typical with most CAD Imports. However, I have only noticed this when using contours, witch brings up my next question.
  • When creating from a 3D Cad file is it better to create it using the grade lines? or the sruvey spot potins? What is the Difference.
  • I hade also thought of using a conceptual mass to set the points and creat a more "smooth" topo, has anyone tried this or know of any downfauls to this??

All opinion and adice is very welcomed.

Allen

Even in most Civil Programs you will get this effect when using points. Use 3D polylines for the contours from the CAD file for you Topo and you will be more satisfied with the out come.

either way the shared co-ordinate would be within the topo map and the model, i think..Unless there is a drastic change in both..

The above poster seems to be an imposter .... just playing around.

 

But bringing up this old thrfead brings up memories.  Both AllenBall and HDDWG2003 passed away too many years ago.   They were both too young.  You two are missed by the old regular members.
