Several days ago, I searched for a way to add a constant number to the Elevations of a Selected Group of COGO points in a Drawing.
In short, the task was to add 6″ to the elevations of all points representing “Back of Curb”. This was needed to properly Stake BC at the site without the need for unnecessary mental arithmetic that can lead to mistakes.
There are many more situations where it will be necessary to change the elevation of points or point groups in Civil3D. For example, adding points for “top of wall”, correcting mistakes for instrument heights, or starting from different benchmarks, etc.
In today’s post, I will share my findings and what is the best way to rise/lower multiple COGO points at once. For a better understanding we will go through 5 simple to understand steps:
Note: To lower the Elevation of selected Points (subtract from the current elevation number) enter a negative value.
