|1||MPL||To mark elevation along a 3D polyline|
|2||LIP||To mark leader lines at given points|
|3||MSA||To mark easting, northing to each vertex and angle between segments|
|4||PLL||To put leader indicating X and Y|
|5||EN||To insert easting and northing at selected point|

Description: When you mark chainages using ‘MCH’ command even if the alignment is drawn in 3D, it is reduced to 2D line and then chainages are marked. In few cases, it may be required that measurements of chainages need to be done along the 3D Lines only. This helps mainly in setting out. Using MPL command Elevations along a 3D polyline can be marked at specified chainage interval.Procedure:
Menu: Mark Leaders at Insertion of Text, Block and Point (LIP)Functionality: To mark leader lines at given points along with Easting and Northing.
Description: Important points in the Map are marked with their respective easting and northing. Using ‘LIP’ command any such important point can be marked with its respective easting and northing along with leader line.Procedure:
Menu: Mark Leaders at each Vertex and Angle between Segments (MSA)Functionality: To mark angle between segments. Along with angle, the lisp also specifies the Easting and northing details of the vertex point.
Description: Another important measurement that is done on alignment lines during design or setting out is finding the internal angle for each pair of connected segments in a given polyline. ‘MSA’ command marks all internal angles and also marks easting and northing for each vertex on the selected polyline.Procedure:
Menu: Put Leader with Easting and Northing (PLL)Functionality: To put leader indicating X and Y. For user defined leader indicating Easting, northing of the first picked point.
Description: ‘PLL’ command is used to put leader line indicating Easting and Northing. Here, Pick a Point, middle and end Point to insert the leader. Along with leader both Easting and Northing value also gets inserted.Procedure:
Menu: Put Easting, Northing with attribute (EN)Functionality: To insert Easting, Northing with attribute at a selected point.
Description: You saw that using ‘PLL’, ‘LIP’ and ‘MSA’ command you can mark leaders. But exporting them from CAD to Excel is not easily possible. If requirement is to export the point data from CAD, then you can mark attributes at such points and export the data. To insert ‘EN’ block at a given point, use ‘EN’ command. Please note that while inserting the ‘EN’ block, commandalso marks easting and northing values.Procedure:
Menu: Mark EN blocks at Insertion of Text, Block and Point (IEN)Functionality: To insert EN block at insertion points of Text and Block.
Description: This option is used to insert EN blocks at insertion point of texts, Blocks and Points.Procedure:
Menu: Vertex Export (VID)Functionality: To export vertex. On executing the command, it shows the number of points exported and displays the location where it has been exported.
Description: Each vertex Easting and northing list will be required in many Survey Drawing Projects. Using VID command you can export Vertex information of any alignment represented by a polyline. Exported file gets created as PntList.CSV in temporary directory (C:\ESurvey\Temp\PntList.CSV).Procedure:
Menu: Export EN Block Information to File (EEN)Functionality: To export EN block information to file.
Description: Using ‘EN’, ‘IEN’, ‘MPL’ commands you can insert EN Blocks at points for exporting data from CAD. To export point information from insertion point of EN block along with 2 more remarks as mentioned in the ‘EN’ block attribute, you can use EEN Command. Exported file gets created in ‘EN.CSV’ file in temporary directory (C:\ESurvey\Temp\EN.CSV).Procedure:
