Points - Carlson Conversion

Postby Lincoln » Fri May 22, 2015 3:11 pm

We have surveyors who use Carlson.

It would be great if we could push a button and all the Carlson points transparently convert in-place to Civil 3D points, while keeping the exact same look as the original Carlson point...All the way down to the white, red and green colors..as shown in the image below.

It would be helpful for organizing to place them in a Point Group called Carlson-##. If the surveyor needed to give us more points after the initial offering, a new incremental Point Group would be created for good bookkeeping practices and chronology.

We don't want to get to the level of creating styles and all Carlson point layouts don't look the same. However, we added a point group field to the Point Convert Blocks tool.

If you create a Carlson point style, a Carlson label style and a Carlson point group (referencing those) you can simply choose the Carlson point group and achieve it.
