Survey Data and AutoCAD

There are a variety of ways to enter information in AutoCAD. An XML or Excel file can be loaded into the table module of AutoCAD.

AutoCAD is not atypical in the sense that it needs information from third party and other sources to be input. This tutorial differs from the others. We’ll use AutoCAD to input survey data.

The first things

Understanding the fundamentals of AutoCAD and the way it relates to its components is crucial for understanding the course. AutoCAD as with all computer systems, utilizes points and coordinates. The coordinates can be further expanded through processes and functions. These coordinates are essential to display the elements on the canvas. Each topic will describe the impact of data entry. The best guideline is to be referring to your training in revit whenever you are doing this.

Line Segments

Each line segment is made up of an inverse map of coordinates. It shows the distance and the angle of incline to the beginning for human beings. The line’s bend will be 90° (anticlockwise) when it reaches the point at which it crosses the ground. The line segment will be drawn for the distance specified.

“@” + length + ” + Northing/Easting coordinates

This example illustrates the meaning of HTML0.


Enter the information in the LINE command, and draw a line segment that is followed by. The LINE command is performed revit using the coordinates in the manner previously described.


Curves are curved, and no pun intended. It is important to be aware of the direction of line segments. If you need to, you may turn the line around at its point of origin or from an established point of origin.

Non-tangent Curves

If the curved shapes don’t extend beyond the previously drawn element, you may employ a radial bearing method to start your drawings.

To draw lines, make use of the Line command. For drawing a line, you can use the Line command. You may choose to use the end point, or any other point as the point of departure to create the curve.

Tangent Curves

The complexity or difficulty of the tangent curvature depends on the way it’s defined.


Survey data entry requires making lines. These commands are the foundation of the extended capabilities.
