3ds Max Modeling :: Civil View Yellow Road Arrows

Jul 11, 2013

3DS Max Design 2014 I am trying to get shaded Yellow road arrow markings. I added the markings to the resource kit .. (Diffuse and Opcaity using same image file)
When first used they look correct..

 then with some editing to the model and many opens later the image is replaced by a grey block

this is what it looks like in shaded viewport, but still renders correctly
we dont always have time to render to file, we capture screen video. Is there a way to fix this? to get the yellow arrow in shaded viewport - permanently.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Road Modeling - Grading / Corridors

Dec 2, 2013

I am preparing to model a road surface for a waterline project.  I would like to be able to generate sections at desired stations showing the sewer, storm drains and joint utility trench along with the proposed water line. My plan is to model the road surface using a surface created from gradings and then create the pipe networks and joint trench.

My question is whether gradings or corridors would be the way to proceed.  I have preliminary design data on the road surface which is sure to change.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Storm Crossing On Road Profile View?

Apr 16, 2012

I have a storm crossing shown on a road profile, and the ellipse that represents the storm pipe is only showing part of the inner wall (I've attached an image). This pipe is skewed slightly, but the entire pipe crosses the road alignment, and this should not make any difference.

Also, is there any way, yet, (I'm using C3D 2011) to have the label show not only the pipe name, but also the invert where the pipe crosses the road alignment, and remain dynamic,? In other words, without having to edit the label text, and lose the dynamic capability. Land Desktop would do this, but it was not dynamic, of course.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Network - Crescent Road - Profile View

Jul 30, 2011

If I have a Crescent Road (P - shape) where the Alignment returns to itself, when i draw pipe network parts in profile, the pipe network gets drawn wrong, ie. the tie-in structure at the intersection is drawn at the wrong station.

My understanding is that the structures will get drawn at the station closest perpendicularly to the alignment, so the structure is going to the end station as opposed to the beginning simply because the end segment of the alignment is closer.

Is there any way to make a structure use a different perpendicular station (without shortening the alignment)?I don't want to move alignment or structure.

Maya Modeling :: Trumpet - Verts Are All Yellow

Apr 4, 2012

I am trying to model a trumpet in Maya 2012. I took a cylinder and started selected the verts on one side to extrude and they were all yellow. When I extruded and then stretched the new edge to make the bell of the trumpet, it expanded but so did the other edge loops. Also, anytime I try to select a single or multiple verts, others are arbitrarily selected. In terms of a clock, if I select 1 o'clock, the 5 o'clock point will be selected. I don't know why but verts can only be selected symmetrically. This problem is also causing many other stranger control problems that are hard to explain. For example, when I extrude, I can drag out the new face if I use the default extruding moving tool (with the move tool and the scale tool on top of one another), but if I click "w" to get to the move tool like I usually do after I extrude, and drag it out, it completely forgets that the extrude ever happened, and just moves the single edge loop I had before. Every forum I've found said to just click "b" to turn off soft-selection, which fixed the original problem of having my shapes have redish orange edges, but the yellow verts are still there.

3ds Max Modeling :: Selecting Faces To Be Textured In UV Editor - Yellow Boxes Grow

May 29, 2013

I'm selecting faces to be textured in the UV editor. The red faces in the pic. The more faces I select (ctrl + click) the more the yellow box grows. Is this normal? I don't recall seeing that behaviour before. I thought it was just supposed to select the extents of the faces..?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Road Surface Becoming Flat?

Jan 30, 2013

running an assembly in to the road corridor and creating a surface. i have designed a network of Roads in CIVIL 3d in which whole network is surrounded by a Loop road. The loop road cross fall is unidirectional (2%) and 4.5 wide. I have used LaneOutsideSuperWithWidening subassembly to create  the assembly of the road. This doesnt contain any kerb or footpath but only road channel lines, The corridor run soomthly but after creating the of the loop road corridor the surface is becoming flat meaning there isn't any cross fall acoss the road but in the assembly crossfall is there. If i run the same assembly in another road alignment the suface is coming absolutely correct.

I also tried different road assemblies to run along the loop road but the result is same no cross fall across the road.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multileader Road Runner

Is this a desired behavior on a multileader? URL....

Seems to do it for anything that is not left aligned. I think it was present in 2013 as well. I use multileaders for annotations a lot since it is easier to use them with the background masks and borders than mtexts.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Customizing Road Profile Output

Feb 27, 2013

I am new to Civil 3D and need to customise the look of road profiles so they look like they were produced from any of our other civil design software packages that we use (to maintain standards between offices etc).

The attached picture is what I need them to look like. I want to show both the natural ground (the dotted line) and the design road line (solid). Then I want to write on the profile the station, natural level and the design level.

I've got the Mastering Civil 3D book (and a few others) sitting on my desk.I worked out how to turn off the grid on the default profile althoguh that was about it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Trimble Export Road Files Corrupted?

Apr 4, 2013

Trimble Access, Civil 3d  2012 export road problem

when I export a road file to my TS2 it becomes corrupted (file size 50% of what it should be.

4 months ago there was no problem. The weird thing a is that the other worstation in the office has this issue to.

Here's what I have done to troubleshoot: swapped out both data collectorsexported this rxl file to a virtual instrument on my desktoptalked to cansel and autodesk but the said they haven't seen this problem. I can rule out the following.
trimble/autodesk software, hardware ( to much a coincidence that both work stations have this problem)Data Collectors swapped out -  file size of the corrupted rxl were the same on the virtual deskto instrumentcorrupted dwg  - exported a road six months ago, now re-exported and the new file is corrupted.
Both machines are identical:

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Smooth Road Profiles Created From Lidar

Aug 14, 2012

We have lucky enough to obtain LIDAR for most of our small City as well as ground only points.  My problem is that profiles produced using it are rough and jagged (see attached).  I've tried contour smoothing to no avail as well as point removal.  Perhaps I haven't just tried enough options.

Should mention also I have breaklines along the CL alignment as well as Edge of Pavement.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Label Style - Design Road CL Profile

Apr 9, 2010

how to create a label style for design center of road (simple tangent) in profile that will work between multiple profile views. I've used the 'Create Multiple Views' profile view wizard. I use a horizontal dimension style label for CL road (looks just like an autocad linear dimension). I'd like the label work across separate views i.e. stop at view end, pick back up at view start.

The label I currently use is simply a line component from tangent start dimension to tangent end dimension and the text component is anchored to the line midpoint. Label looks as intended for normal use. For some reason the line drops as if looking for the actual pvi at the right side when i use multiple views.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Adjusting Intersections Secondary Road Profile

Jul 9, 2013

I went forward designing intersection profiles with limited survey and simply made an educated guess for the secondary roads pgl tie in point. I have received updated survey and when I move the profile end point to meet existing grade it adds another pvi effectively holding the profile grade I set preliminarily. I'm keeping the lock point. Is there something with the return/ offset profiles preventing this edit? What is the proper work flow?
