Join Dustin Manning for an in-depth discussion in this video Translating surveys, part of AutoCAD Civil 3D: Topographic and Boundary Survey.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look…at the simplest method for translating…a survey that's based in a drawing.…What I have here are points one and two…and the points I want to move them to are T1 and T2.…We're going to take this in two steps.…The first step will be simply moving…all the survey information from point one to point T1.…At that time, that fixes the horizontal point…and the elevation of the translated survey location.…So we want to check one thing before we do this.…We want to type in O snap Z on the command line.…
When this value is set to zero,…our snaps will pay attention to the Z elevation.…And since we're wanting to translate this survey…and it's going to be on adjusted datum,…we want to make sure that we are picking Z values…and not just assuming an elevation of zero.…So I'll accept this value by pushing enter on the keyboard.…And now I'm going to run the move command.…Type move on the command line.…Press enter.…I'll window around my survey.…Once I'm done selecting, I'll press enter on the keyboard.…
