Importing Acad Elevation 'point's

Recommended Posts

I've run into this a few times now and I always work around it and have not had the chance to resolve how to do this properly.  I have the ACAD survey base drawing.  All elevation shots are on the drawing as ACAD 'point's.  They are valid points with X height information. The ACAD file is in metric units, CHief is imperial - but I am importing it with unit specified on the import (the terrain perimeter imported from the same ACAD file came in correctly).  When I attempt to import these 'point's - they do not import no matter what I try!

 

ps. I turned on all layers & filled window in the view to make sure they are not hiding somewhere.....

 

Help! Attached is the dwg file with the points

      I know this has been talked about before but I can not find it and I can't figure out how to do it again.
      I have a house drawing and I have the terrain drawn and I would like to orient the house differently on the terrain. I want to keep my house drawing square with my plan so it would need to be the terrain itself that has to rotate. I can rotate the terrain perimeter but that doesn't rotate the elevation lines etc. When I select the perimeter and all the elevation lines, i am not able to rotate the whole thing.

      Hi everyone:
       
      I am having an issue with a split level. I am using Chief X11.
      The plan i posted does not have foundations since when i add those things get really weird and I think I need to sort out the issue with the levels first or the foundation will never build right. I have a room that is going to be garage however no matter how i define it the door from that room into the main house is above the level of the ceiling. see attached photo. I have also attached the plan. The exterior walls are a sip wall customized according to the manufactures specifications with a layer for the furred interior walls. The total thickness on those walls is 10 5/8" The interior wall is a customized interior wall that is load bearing for use in certain areas of the design.
