Labeling Elevation Points

Recommended Posts

I was about to ask this, but figured it out eventually, so posting it here for others. I went out to the job site and pulled in 100+ xyz elevation points from a TopCon total station and loaded them as 'import terrain data.' CA generated a nice set of Topo lines but I wanted to view the original point info. At first, I selected one point and then did ctrl-j to select all elevation points. in the Display Text of the General tab, I wrote %elevation%. That gave me something like 10 decimal points of data in inches. Of course the key lies in text macros. So I created a simple text macro with context owner-object called elevation-feet with the content (elevation/12).round(1) and put %elevation-feet% in the text field. The results was as I wanted - see picture. If anyone knows a different/better way to do this, please chime in!

That is very nice.  Would you mind sharing the macro?
