We shouldn’t have to reinvent the wheel to employ Civil 3D point data successfully. After more than ten releases of Civil 3D that would be dumb. The Pareto Principal, that famous 80 20 Rule, applies to our civil engineering and survey data. I argue, and most civil and survey folk would agree, that 20% of what we gather and create drives a large part of our project…

We examined in detail how we can take advantage of Civil 3D’s arcane methods of interpreting and resolving point data in a multiple post series on point display resolutions in AutoCAD Civil 3D. The topic of NOT Keys kept coming up. A couple of folks asked the basic question,

“What is a NOT Key?”

It might be a better question…
