# Thread: Line's First Point Not Attaching

1. ## Line's First Point Not Attaching

03-26-2016 04:58 PM Hello,

I'm doing a project for school and here are the starting directions:

"The point of beginning (POB) of this survey is measured
from BM#8332. This benchmark is located at the northeast
corner of the intersection of SW Washington Street and
SW Oleson Road. The coordinates for the benchmark are
1421334.93,783207.62. The first point in the survey for
Oleson Village (the POB) is 113.66 feet from the benchmark
and at a bearing of N5‹2723W. Note the general location of
these points in Figure 2."

So here's my issue. I'm trying to draw a line from the benchmark of "1421334.93,783207.62", but the line won't stick to that first point. If I start a line at 1,1, it will stick. If I start a line at 1000,1000, it will stick. Even if I knock off the last digit of each number before the decimal point "142133.93,78320.62", it will stick. Why is this? My limits are set to 2000000,2000000. I'm lost. This is scary becasue I havn't even started the project yet and I've spent 2 hours trying to figure this out. Any help would be much appreciated!

PS. I attached the project.

R,
James

2. .....or it is sticking but it's very far North East which I can't even navigate to. Why would it be so far away? Is there a setting that I have wrong?

3. Ok, I figured out I can zoom all and now I can see where's the line is attached. Then I put the next point in but it won't attach the line. Here is what I put @113.66'<n5d27'23"w

Any thoughts?

4. I work metric and full circle for bearings but that said Units need to be feet set "Engineering" and Angle "Surveyors units" there are other here who work in feet and will correct my attempt, but I got a line.

a little trick copy the two lines below to the command line press enter after e
line 142133.93,78320.62
@113.66'<n5d27'23"w Z E

You may be interested in this thread which answers a lot of the questions that many students have about this Oleson Village project: http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/showth...on-Village-Map!!!

That's the way Penn-Foster elected to set up the project which in my opinion was totally unnecessary. I addressed this issue in one of my many posts about the Oleson Village project. To see your point you'll have to do a Zoom > Window around the northeast end of the line that extends from 0,0,0 to your point. BTW...I hope you know how to enable and use OSnaps as their use will result in a more accurate drawing.

Here is a link to one of the threads I would recommend that concerns this particular project.

7. That didn't work but I appreciate the reply.

Thank you Remark! I had seen a bunch of threads on this project but didn't see yours. I'll head over to your other post now. Hopefully that will solve all my problems and you guys won't have to hear back from me again lol

Thanks again for taking the time out of your schedule to help us newbies. It's definitely appreciated!
