Q - question

Displaying elevation labels on a Civil 3D surface.

A - answer The display options for DTM surfaces in AutoCAD Civil 3D do not offer displaying of point elevation labels. If need to show elevations on a surface model, you can use the SurfacePoints utility.

The free LISP utility CADstudio SurfacePoints automatically creates point objects on the selected surface of your edited terrain. You can label these points with customized formatted annotations. Points are created in a separate, overwritable point group "CADstudio-SurfacePoints".

You can download the application from
