AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2015 Survey Fix Utility

by Will on April 18, 2014

Hi all,

I have created a new version of my survey fix which should now be compatible with new versions of AutoCAD®. I’ve tested this with AutoCAD® 2015, and it should work with previous versions as well. Download below:


Let me know if you have any problems.

Great work Will, I can confirm it works in Civil 3D 2014 as well.
I’ve been using your tool since its first release, and I think it is one of the best tools I’ve ever used. I’ve cleaned up so many surveys, with thousands of points fixed in a matter of minutes, confusable points and all!

I’m glad to help Owen – I’d be really interested to find out how many people like you still use this!

Hi Will, this is exactly what I’m after but wondering if it’s at all possible to make a similar tool for use with AutoCAD LT? I think LT is limited to DIESEL and the NETLOAD command doesn’t work in LT either. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Hi Will, not sure what happened to my last comment..
Was wondering if there was any chance of something similar for AutoCAD LT??

Hi Alistair,

Your comment was in a queue for approval :-).

I’m afraid there aren’t any scripting alternatives for LT that I know of, apart from very basic ones. However, I could re-write the tool to work with some kind if import/export process. Hmm, got me thinking now!

If you were to simply export the points, and details of the text entities, I could certainly write a rudimentary matching algorithm for matching them together and changing the elevation of the points – that’d work!

Thanks for the idea!

Hi Will,

I’ve downloaded your Survey Fix module because It looks like a great tool. But unforuntaley it’s not working! Could you help?

I load the DLL as shown in your video and then type in the command ‘SURVEYFIX’ but AutoCAD responds with “Unknown Command”.

Do you know why this is? I am working with Civil 3D 2013 and have tried in AutoCAD 2014 (not civil). I have downloaded the old and new versions of your DLL file with no luck. Do I need to save it in a specific place? Or is it something else?

Thanks for your time,

Do you get any error messages when you try to NETLOAD the DLL?
