Each group could live as a unique Import event....(txt based FBK technically)
or on the Prospector Tab, Rt-Clcick on the Point Group, and select the OTHER option Export LandXML and use that file....

That is what I did the first time. Sorry but you lost me. When you say 'unique Import event' are you talking about importing FROM the survey database in the drawing as a group?

If you are going to use the LandXML disregard, unique import events...

This would be another method of continuing to keep all of the point data discreetly grouped.  First as you create and group them using the Create Points operations.  Second as you add them to ths survey database as unique Import events(2010) and or as Networks(2009 and prior releases).

Does that clear it up for you?

Mark, create the new points and then import them into your survey database directly from the drawing (again, assuming you have 2010).  See video.

Be warned, it's about 8MB.

Correct, I do not have C3D '10, I have '09.

Aha.  That makes sense.

Any reason you aren't upgrading to 2010?

None that I know of. The drafting folks have lost control of our licenses so there's no telling what will happen now.

If you are going to be dealing with points and survey, I would highly recommend you upgrade.  As you can see in the video I posted, it's really easy to do in 2010.

It is also really easy to do with 2009, one just need not first Export out the point group, and then add it to the survey database.
It would be pretty slim to justify an upgrade for this one function.  The survey side of 2010 is NOT significantly improved over 2009 version despite the marketing materials claims.  The fact they fixed a few things that they do NOT plan to release service packs for the 2009 isn't a good reason either, as those functions should already in 2009, they just don't.

However IF I worked for an autodesk dealer, yeah right now is the time to upgrade for sure....oh yeah!  That and sign everyone up for that 3 day class that they wont learn what they really need to know while we are at it....cha-Ching!

Oh, wait, I'm not an autodesk dealer, so scratch that.

Ok, so what is the trick to get the point description when you do 'Import Survey LandXML' from your survey database? I tried 'use code value' but that didn't work. I really need the point description.

They come in correctly automatically for me using the attached file.


could be time to send/post a sample of your data and let me experiment.

When you import the attached Text.txt (rename to XML) do you get descriptions?

And or are there descriptions attached in your exported XML file as shown:
