Q - question

Snap points to the nearest curve/polyline with Snap2Curve.

A - answer With the freeware utility Snap2Curve you can move (snap) selected points, block references or COGO points to the nearest curve (line, polyline, spline). You can move the points to the closest point on the curve or to its closest vertex. And you can keep the point's Z-coordinate or snap to the curve's Z-coordinate. You can also ignore snapping of points which are too far from the selected curve(s).

Download the Snap2Curve LISP utility from Download, load it intou your AutoCAD or Civil 3D with APPLOAD and type the Snap2Curve command. Now select the "snap-to" curves (Lines, Polylines, Splines) and the point geometry to be "snapped". Specify the working modes and the tolerance. Too far points will not be moved (will display as "^").
