C3D Point Tools

C3D Point Tools

DotSoft LLC



Add Radial: Add multiple points at a specified distance around a point.

Add Single: Add single points based on known or picked coordinates.

Auto Draw: Automatically connects field points with 2D or 3D linework and symbols.  Generates 2DPoly, 2DPolyFit, 3DPoly, Spline or C3D FeatureLines as controlled by the user for each code.

  • Supports Autodesk Fieldbook, Carlson FTF, Eagle Point Coding, Trimble TGO, AASHTO SDMS Figure Code or Generic Connect methods.
  • Works straight from selected point objects in the drawing or an external point file.
  • Handles curve codes to form arc segments on 2DPolys or automatically graded segmented 3DPolys.

Centroids: Creates a point at the centroid of a selection set of objects with centroid options.


  • Blocks: Converts blocks in the current drawing to application points.
  • Text: Converts text objects in the drawing to application points.  Obtain the coordinates from adjacent geometry such as points, inserts, circles or even crossing lines.
  • Labels: Converts surface elevation labels to Cogo points.

Export: Exports designated points to supported file formats.


  • Combine: Combines multiple point files into a single target file.
  • Compare: Compares two point files with detailed comparison report.
  • Convert Multiple: Converts multiple point files to a designated target format.
  • Convert Text: Converts a single text file (space, comma, tab delimited) to defined format.
  • View/Print: Quickly view point files with details as file is clicked.

Groups: Manage point groups including adding, deleting, renaming and more.  Quickly add/remove points by description match, elevation range, inside linear object or window, number range, etc.

Harvest: Harvests all points from a folder (and subfolders) or selected files. The source files can be CAD drawing files or any point database format the application can read. Output to CSV or KML for Google Earth (KML option requires Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil3D® 2015+).

Import: Imports points from multiple point database formats into the current drawing.  Extended fields become point user defined properties.

Inverse: Inverses between points (pick or number), echoes coordinates, azimuths, bearings, horz/vert distance and slope.

  •  Arc: Specify a hub point, two target points (clockwise), also returns included angle.
  •  Normal: Simply specify two points for each inverse.
  •  Radial: Specify a hub point and a point range to inverse.
  •  Sequential: Continuously enter point numbers, returns total distance at end.

Leaders: Automatically extends the labels of selected CogoPoints using various methods, including radial for clusters.

List: Quick command line table layout listing of selected points.

On Grid: Add multiple points evenly spaced on a rectangular grid.

On Objects: Add points at the vertices or specified intervals along a selection set of objects.

Renumber: Renumber using one of four methods.  Use All (Civil3D CogoPoint order), Database (order created), Increment (add/subtract to a selection) or Sequential (sequentially number a selection).

Report: Generates detailed point reports with user controlled columns.  Includes Lat/Lon and alignment station/offset fields.

Scale: Scales points from a picked point with optional preservation of elevations.

Select: Select points by number range, raw or full description, or elevation range.

Set Next: Set the point number to use for the next CogoPoint added (using any process).

Status: Returns used and free (available) point numbers in the drawing.


  • Import points from a shapefile to the current drawing.
  • Export points in a point group to a ESRI shapefile, including extended fields like lat/long and even include UDPs).

Zoom: Zooms (center) to entered point numbers and echoes coordinates.
