Join Dustin Manning for an in-depth discussion in this video Inquiry Tools, part of AutoCAD Civil 3D: Topographic and Boundary Survey.
- [Narrator] Now let's take a look at our inquiry tool…and we'll perform a point inverse on these two points.…On the analyze tab in the ribbon…we go all the way over to the far right…under the inquiry panel and choose inquiry tool.…To perform the point inverse we'll…want to select the inquiry type.…If we expand out point and then choose point inverse…now all we need to do is select the two points.…So for point number 1 we can select the ellipsis…and then paying attention to the command line down here…wants us to pick the point object.…
We'll click the point number 1…and now we'll do the same for point number 2,…click the ellipsis and pick point 2.…And you can click escape to end that.…So we get all of the information about the…coordinates of our point, lat long, grid, northing, easting,…and if we scroll down to the bottom and if you start…to see this odd display error all you need to do is…resize the window a little bit there that's pretty common.…So then we get the information about that inverse.…We have the direction, we have horizontal distance,…
