We have a survey with 230,000 points. It is a text file that gets imported into Civil 3D, our CAD guy says the machine usually starts struggling with files around 40k-50k and i have witnessed this from over his shoulder.
I have come across people saying they have surveys with over 100k points, but I dont understand how they are able to do this.
our workstation is-
windows 7 - 64 bit (pro)
core i7-3770 (up to 3.9ghz)
16 gb RAM
AMD radeon 6800 series with 1gb memory(gddr5)
What are other peoples experiences?
