Here’s a summary of some COGO operations and how to do them in VectorWorks.
Insert point by coordinates
Double-click on the 2D Locus or 3D Locus tool to either create 2D or 3D locus points.
Insert point by clicking
Use the 2D or 3D locus tool and click in the drawing to insert point.
Insert line with bearing or azimuth
Double-click on the Line tool to bring up the preferences dialog box. Highlight the "polar" button to get polar style L/A coordinates.
Insert multiple points along a line or curve
Use the Line into Segments… and Arc into Segments... commands respectively to break the lines or curves into segments. To just place a point at a specific interval along a line, use the Snap Distance constraint with Multiple Divisions enabled and a locus point.
Curves: create curves through 2 & 3 points, between 2 intersecting lines, by parameters (radius, entry bearing, tangent, external, arch length, etc)
The Arc tool does all of these, some just using the modes on the mode bar. Simply double-click the Arc tool for coordinate entry.
Boundary: select any points/lines in order and define a boundary
The Property Line object will do this (by points), as will its accompanying tool, Property Line Tool (by clicking a starting point and entering data). Points Coordinates transformation: rotate around a point, translate, increase elevation by, etc
Enter your points as 3D loci using the 3D Locus Tool. You can group them and then rotate, move, or elevate them together. Then ungroup if you want.
