Transparent Commands
 
 
 

Use AutoCAD Civil 3D transparent commands to enter a value based on known information when you are prompted for a point, a distance, or a radius.

Most AutoCAD Civil 3D transparent commands are used to specify point locations within a larger operation, such as the creation of an alignment or a parcel lot line. Using these transparent commands, you can calculate the location for a point from information, such as angle and distance, or from point object information, such as a point number.

NoteFor more information about AutoCAD transparent commands see AutoCAD Help.

Some of the AutoCAD Civil 3D transparent commands require a Z coordinate for the point elevation. For more information, see Transparent Command Settings.
