Survey entries in AutoCAD

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Alex:

When in AutoCAD go to Format - Units - and select Surveyor from the Angles
Side of the listings. with a precision of at least (0.000000).

AutoCAD will then accept your entry as a distance and bearing from the
command line.
i.e... @300.00<N 30.2025 E this would be 300.00 ft. N 30 deg 20 min 25 sec
E .

Do not forget to set your North Direction toward the top of your screen
otherwise you will get some interesting results.

Trial and Error will give you the best settings for your use.

Good Luck
