    Lightbulb ID Northing/Easting In C3D

    Trying to get a northing/easting label for a point. LDT command was simple to find. C3d has N/E as a transparent command where you enter the coordinates. Does anyone know where to find the N/E command to label a point?

    I don't think there is a command for labeling Northing and Easting in C3D.

    Offhand, the only way I can think to do that is to create a Point Label Style that displays Northing and Easting. Then create a Cogo Point wherever you want the label. This is almost the same thing, except for the need to create a Cogo Point.

    Unfortunately, the northing and easting isn't exposed to general labels. What I usually do is create a dummy alignment running through my site and then create a station offset label that only displays the northing and easting of the spot labeled.

    northing and easting are available as a label style. just make sure your on your state grid coor system.

    create a style
    make a point with that style
    good to go

    Roger, you are right. If you are labeling a point as in a C3D cogo point, you can add the northing and easting to the label. If you are trying to label a point as in a spot within the project, then you have to label something like a point or alignment. There is no option to lable norhting and easting in a general label.

    Question Re: ID Northing/Easting In C3D

    Did anyone ever find a way to do this? I have the same need. I want to label a spot in space with the northing / easting (or lat / long) without creating a point object. LDT did this function perfect and we used that ability often.

    Another option to create a N/E point is to create a block with attributes. The block can consist of an AutoCAD point. The attribute would contain a field that reads the position the the point. Not everything in a drawing needs to be a Civil 3D object.

    FYI, the general notes in 2010 can have data in them now such as Northing Easting, Lat Long, etc.

    I found a lisp program online that does this. It's not dynamic (it won't update if moved) but it gives cross hairs with northing and easting. It could easily be modified to put the text in any place you like. It also sets the snap to 50 so that the coordiantes are whole numbers. But again that can be modified.

    You should be able to just use a block with fields if all you want is a dynamic Northing/Easting label.
