    Default creating vertical lines along a profile line

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi I am trying to get a lisp or some kind of help to automate the following process:

    I work in Map3D 2016 and I get survey data for obstruction objects at the end of runways. I need to show this information in plan and profile form. Once I create my profile, I would like to be able to generate the vertical lines base on the distance from a fixed point (end of runway) and the elevation value of the object.

    Does anyone have any idea how by using a lisp or running a script. I have not knowledge of programming or writing scrips or lisps routines.

    Thanks in advance any help will be greatly appreciate it

    That's what Civil3D is for. But if you search these forums you should find a free(used to be free) civil program all vlisp that might do what you want. Sorry I forgot the name of it.

    Yes that's the one. Don't know if it does what the OP wants but that's what I was thinking of.
    Thanks for pointing it out.
