Q - question

Quickly connect a series of points in Civil 3D.

A - answer In Civil 3D you can use a counple of useful transparent commands to specify locations (XYZ coordinates) through COGO point numbers or names.

If you have a sequentially numbered survey points in your project and you need to connect them with a polyline or feature line, you can specify the range of points to connect with a numeric range, e.g. connect points 101-137.

For this feature you can use the transparent commands (see the ribbon) 'PN (point number) and 'PA (point name) and 'PO (point object). The points can be referenced individually or (in the case of point numbers) also as a range of numbers (from-to).

See the connecting polyline through the points 101 to 109:
