I was helping a client the other day with a survey drawing. The file was all 2D, so the spot levels had to be manually added. The surveyor had the text for the height of the spot level, but there was no corresponding 3D locus for creating the site model.
It is easy to create a 3D Locus using the 3D Locus tool, but there are two problems. First, it’s a long slow job. Second, if you manually input the locus height it is easy to make an error.
- it is a lot faster to use this tool because you just need to click;
- it measures the survey data, removing the chance of making an error.
I have just updated this tool so that it works regardless of of your units.
