Having come back from AU where i caught up with a few New Zealand Civil3d user on the last couple of days. I thought it would be a good idea to setup a New Zealand User Group on Linkedin. If your using Civil3d and want to get into contact with fellow users in New Zealand follow this link and join the group.

Surface Volume Table appearing to not insert in drawing

Last week I had an issue in a drawing with a surface volume table appearing not to be inserted. For future reference the table was actually being inserted in the drawing but as I had the UCS not set to world the picked insertion co-ordinates were taken as a world co-ordinate point that was away in the distance and hence the issue of non appearance.

Acad.lsp file not loading

Had to troubleshoot a PC today that was not loading the standard company acad.lsp file off the server.
I found using the appload command and searching the load history that an acad.lsp file was being loaded but from a different location.

Looked into this file with notepad it appears it was loaded on the PC with the 12D Exporter and was being loaded first as it was placed in the support directory of the local Civil3d install.


Rotating Annotative Text Independent of Scale

Learning some tricks with annotative text today. I always new you could drag the different pieces of text at different scales to separate locations, by selecting them with the grip itself and not the text object. But I did not know that you could rotate the text to a different angle for different scales by changing the rotation in the properties windows as explain in this blog post.
