SmartDraft Inverse Points is an Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® command:
Inverse between point objects, point numbers, or Civil 3D Survey database points. Options to inverse radial from a base point, and inverse along an open or closed path.
Command Line Options
Line: Inverse between two points to get the bearing, distance, and slope.
ACCw: Inverse an arc using the starting point, radial point, and ending point selected counter-clockwise (CCW) to get the delta, length, radius, tangent, chord, and slope.
ACW: Inverse an arc using the starting point, radial point, and ending point selected clockwise (CW) to get the delta, length, radius, tangent, chord, and slope.
A3: Inverse an arc using the starting point, point along arc, and ending point to get the delta, length, radius, tangent, chord, and slope.
Select: Enter "S" to change to the select points input option.
Point Number: Enter "P" to change to the enter point numbers input option.
Database: Enter "D" to change to the enter survey point numbers input option.
Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2008 or higher only. Available only if a Survey Database is currently open. Options: Display the Inverse Points Options Dialog
Report Display a dialog box with all the inverse information processed and the inverse information can be saved to a file or printed.
Command Line Output Example:
Bearing = N89°26'19.38"W, Distance = 26.93', Slope = 4.493%
Running Total = 210.01'
Delta = 110°44'44" (RND 110°44'44"), Radius = 7.16', Length = 13.84'
Tangent = 10.37', Chord = 11.78', Bearing = S34°03'58"E
Slope = 2.240%, Running Total = 223.85'
Note: (RND) is the delta calculated by using the rounded starting and ending radial bearings.
