AutoCAD Civil 3D points not loading in MSCad

Post by bchimney » Thu Dec 19, 2019 8:15 am

Has anyone solved the problem with MSCad inability to properly load drawings created with AutoCAD Civil 3D? Civil 3D uses a COGO point which is not the same as the old Softdesk point block with attributes. MSCad cannot properly register the location of these new points based on the Civil 3D database. It draws long leaders to the AutoCad world coordinate location of the point and not the database location from Civil 3D. And there seems to be no procedure to convert these points to something that can be used in the MSCad point database.

Basically, how can I use my old Civil 3d drawings in MSCad? I seems as simple as a database conversion.
