Join Dustin Manning for an in-depth discussion in this video Translating a database, part of AutoCAD Civil 3D: Topographic and Boundary Survey.
- [Narrator] We've looked at translating…a survey that's based in a drawing,…now let's do the same with a survey database.…In many ways this is good bit simpler.…Let's go over to tool space and on the survey tab,…let's look at our survey databases.…Last time we set up a survey database was in chapter 1…so we're going to utilize the survey database.…Now before we can make edits to this…survey database we do need to open it.…So if we right click we want to choose open for edit.…And now we see all of out import events…and figures and survey points.…
Now quick explanation, like in the last movie we're going to…pick up this survey and move it from point 1 to point T1…and it's going to be rotated from this line to this line.…So we'll input all that information…into the survey translate command here.…We'll right click on the database…and choose translate survey database.…From here we're going to give it our base point.…Easiest way to do this is to pick in drawing.…And go down to point 1, click there.…
Next we'll go onto rotation angle.…
