Get Point Elevation from 3Dfaces

This function calculates elevations on the basis of a triangle surface in the drawing, and writes the elevation value to an active layer to the current AutoCAD drawing.


  • The function reads the elevation from the active terrain model. Hence it is essential to check the project setting for correct model.
  • Triangle Model is to be generated and stored to the Digital Terrain Model before initiating the function “Get Point Elevation from 3D Faces”.

Run the function form the following locations:

MOUS_ICO Toolbar: Not available from the Toolbar

MOUS_ICO Menu: Novapoint > Terrain Information > Get Point Elevation from 3DFaces

KEYB_ICO Command Line: Not available from the command line

Command prompts for:

  • Hights of tekst <2.5 (is default)>: New value or Enter
  • Number of decimals <2 (is default)>: New value or Enter
  • Specify the point in the drawing, for which elevation is desired. The program calculates the elevation of the point from the triangle model and inserts on the drawing file. The same value will be listed on the command prompts also.

Command continues to prompt for points. Pick all the points for which elevations are desired. Exit the function with the key Enter.
