I received a list of coordinates and heights from a surveyor. I understand that Revit has the capacity to create a toposurface from such data. Does anybody know how?

from the ACad file create a 'csv' file. load it into the Revit file and then select when doing the toposurface..

I received the data in a ASC format and can only open it in a text editor. It is a list of numerical coordinates (see attached file at original post) The local distributors of Revit are at a loss…so, how does one do this? Once the ASC is opened in MS WordPad, how would one create a CSV file? If I am going about this all wrong, I’d appreciate some alterative advice.

Attached You will find a csv-file with Your data in it. I opened it in excel, stripped off unwanted data and then saved it as a csv-file. Now You just have to open Revit and choose "toposurface - use imported - points file" and select the csv-file. For more info on this look at this excellent page: http://revitrocks.blogspot.com/2006/07/importing-topo-points-into-revit.html BG Patrik from Sweden

hey, first thing you should do is relax... there are two ways of creating a toposurface...one by importing a Acad file which has the contour lines with their elevations or which have the z value...the second is by taking the csv file from Acad file(in situations which have the co-ordinate values and no contour lines). By how much i know, revit identifies just these two formats. the ASC file you have can be converted to a CSV format...open it in notepad and convert it... you can think of solutions by being calm and believing that the solution exists... good luck!
