Given a generic set of point data describing an arbitrary surface including an overhang or dead-end tunnel, how would we go about constructing a triangulated surface?  Further, how would we go about it with a through-tunnel?  We can do so with a more limited arbitrary set of data which doesn't include any overhangs, tunnels, or similar features.
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

you might have to push that rough RECAP first...and then bring in the point cloud and then make surface from that.

a sample of this random point data would help explore methods / against desired outcomes

now, show me that in a C3D TIN instead of Acad surface mesh

Without the Civil3D, at least.  There was a point up-thread about triangulating something; I'd be satisfied with a much simpler sample set.  I'm interested in the procedure if somebody was thinking about one, not where Civil3D would fail in the task.  Or was there just spit-balling about how it "should" be possible?
