Chapter 3: Points > Creating Basic Points

Creating Basic Points

certobjective.tif

You can create points many ways, using the Points menu in the Create Ground Data panel on the Home tab. Points can also be imported from text files or external databases or converted from AutoCAD, Land Desktop, or SoftDesk point objects.

Point Settings

Point settings are our first glimpse at what is known as command settings. All Civil 3D objects have command settings tucked away in the Settings tab of Toolspace. In the case of points, it is handy to have these settings readily available for on-the-fly modifications. Whether or not the changes you make on-the-fly are remembered the next time you create points depends on your template settings (see Chapter 19 for more information on feature settings in the template).
