Randy's Landscape Design
Allows use of Autodesk® AutoCAD® Points from a TOPO survey data file import.

General Usage Instructions

This is intended to be an Autoload bundle. If you are a budget-minded landscape designer, contractor, or builder who has only a limited need for topographical survey equipment and software, this is for you.

You will use your survey topo point file, collected in the field, and instead of downloading it into Civil 3D, you save it as an ASCII text file named "TOPO.txt" You replace the existing example file with the newly collected data file. You may want to rename the old one for reference.

You simply run the program and your data is mapped into AutoCAD points in simple AutoCAD. No need for Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® unless you wish to do more advanced work with points, point groups, etc. Before you go into the field and survey, you may want to print out the topo codes in the ALL_IN_ONE.txt file for reference and use. If you wish to use different (Your) codes, you would simply replace the existing point codes in the ALL_IN_ONE file with yours.

Replace the existing file with your new file. Use the same name. You might want to make a copy of the example file for reference. The App or program reads your topo data file and uses the topo code information to name layers, and map the points into the drawing file. The resulting drawing has the AutoCAD points on corresponding layers. You can use simple layer management to isolate and draw from point to point or place blocks on the points.

Additional Information

Known Issues

I believe that the custom CUIX uses that particular GUID from the version of AutoCAD which it is copied from. So, to be safe, this is ONLY for AutoCAD 2023.
