TL Cogo Block
Ever received a file from a consultant or client containing a bunch of static/exploded cogo point blocks instead of native Autodesk® Civil 3D® cogo point objects?
This app will help recreate the lost Civil 3D cogo points. It will recursively scan through the nested block definitions and attempt to extract relevant information to rebuild the original cogo point.
Supported text objects inside the block definition are DBText, MText and Attributes. Additional functionality such as character trimming and coordinate scaling on numerical inputs is also provided.
Any point blocks that fail to generate a cogo point are automatically added to a selection set for easy identification.
This app does not rely on the presence of attribute data inside block definitions in order to determine the cogo point parameters. Instead, it recursively searches the Autodesk® AutoCAD® blocks for objects containing text strings, extracts this information and assigns it to the various cogo point fields according to a format string specified by the user. It then recreates the cogo point Civil 3D object if all input conditions are met.
Refer to the General Usage instructions in the help file for details on the various parameters, supported objects and workflow.
