I have a number of 2D Autocad Topographical Survey Drawings that require converting into 3D so that they can be imported into a Ground Modelling Package and enable cut/fill calculations to be carried out.
In order to speed up this exercise I am looking for an Autolisp routine that will move "Spot Heights" on the survey drawings to their correct Z value without having to re-type the value.
Is it possible to do this with Autolisp ?
Each "Spot Height" consists of a point (or simple block) and a short piece of text giving the value of the spot height. Ideally the lisp routine would allow selection of each point (or block) together with the text, and then move them both to the Z value depicted by the text. The X and Y values of the point (or block) and the text should remain unchanged.
Any help would be appreciated.
