SincpacC3D General Information Command Summary Quux Software



The LotCorners command sets points on all lot corners in the selected parcel(s).


Type LotCorners at the command line. You will see a dialog box similar to the one below, containing a list of all sites in the current drawing:

LotCorners dialog

Select the sites on which you wish to set lot corners from the list. By default, points are placed on parcels in numerical order. However, if you select the option to "Sort Parcels by Style, then by Number", the parcels are sorted first by Style, then by Number. To change the order of Parcel Styles, select a Parcel Style and click on the arrows to move it up or down in the list.

If you select the option to "Set point only on selected Parcel Styles", points will only be set if the parcel's style is selected in the list. In order to select or deselect an item in the list, you must first click on the item to select it, then you can click on the item again to change the checkbox. This control is setup this way because you may also click on an item and then use the arrows to move it up and down in the list.

The right side of the dialog box contains the Point Creation Control, which summarizes the current Point Creation Settings. You may adjust these settings by clicking the "Edit Point Creation Settings" button, which will take you to the Point Creation Dialog. Note that the Description settings are not available for this command, since the generated Cogo Points use the Point Description specified in the main dialog box.

Note that the Point Creation Settings let you select various options for Elevation. When you select PickPoint, the Cogo Point elevations are taken from the Parcel lines (this option does not work on C3D 2010 and earlier). All of the other options should work as-expected, except at this time, if you select "Manual" elevations, there is no indication of which point is being generated, so you'll have no idea which elevation to type. This issue should be addressed in a future release. In this release, the "Manual" option is probably not very useful.


In the example below, points were set at all lot corners.

LotCorners example 1

In the example below, the "Main Parcel" style was selected in the list, and points were set only on the parcel with this style. Note that only the corners of this parcel were set, so there are only two corners set on the northern-most line of the property. Compare that to the last example, where corners were also set on all the adjacent lots, and the north property line had two additional corners set where it abutted the lot lines for the property to the north.
