To create a point using the COGO Input dialog box

  1. Click Home tabDraw panelCOGO drop-downCOGO Input.At the Command prompt, enter mapcogo.
  2. In the COGO Input dialog box, select the routine you want to use.
  3. Enter the appropriate data in the Input section.
  4. Click Calculate. AutoCAD Map 3D calculates the new point, and previews it on your map. Click the Pan button to pan to the new point.
  5. Click Create Point.

To create a point using the COGO Input dialog box transparently

  1. Start a command, such as PLINE.
  2. When prompted for input, instead of specifying the input, enter ‘mapcogo at the command prompt.
  3. In the COGO Input dialog box, select the routine you want to use.
  4. Enter the appropriate data in the Input section.
  5. Click Calculate. AutoCAD Map 3D calculates the new point, and previews it on your map. Click the Pan button to pan to the new point.
  6. Click Create Point.
  7. When the transparent command finishes, continue responding to the prompts for the original command.

To use COGO commands

To do this... Use this method...
Use an angle and a distance from another point to create an object. Use COGO to enter angle and distance to specify a point.
Use a bearing and a distance from another point to create an object. Use COGO to enter bearing and distance to specify a point.
Use bearings from two points to create a point. Use COGO to enter two bearings to specify a point.
Use a deflection angle and a distance from another point to create an object. Use COGO to enter deflection angle and distance to specify a point.
Use distances from two points to create a point. Use COGO to enter two distances to specify a point.
Use azimuth and distance from another point to create an object. Use COGO to enter azimuth and distance to specify a point.
Use an offset distance from a line to create a point. Use COGO to enter distance and offset to specify a point.
Generate an inverse report to determine the relationship between two points. Use COGO to create an inverse report.
