Q - question

Convert Civil 3D COGO points to blocks with attributes.

A - answer If you need to convert special "Point" objects (COGO points) in AutoCAD Civil 3D to standard blocks with attributes (point number, elevation), you can use the command AeccConvertPointsToSdskPoints (ribbon Default > Create terrain > Points > Create blocks from COGO points).

This command converts the selected points (group, window...) to standard AutoCAD block references (instances) - you can either use your existing, custom defined block, or the command creates a new, default block.
