Jul 16, 2012

i have a road layout consisting of 3D ploylines. i want to create a surface over this layout.... i have tried but it will only seem to work on straight sections of road and not the intersections.. And i know it would be simple in civil 3d but i dont have access to that.

Illustrator Scripting :: Creating Dialog Consisting Of Multiple Buttons

Apr 24, 2013

I want to create a dialog consisting of multiple buttons. As a result I want value which button was pressed by user.
The script (shortened to problematic part):
// I'm looping through elements on layer 'warstwa' from kolorStart to kolorStop, 'k' is used for number buttons

for (i = kolorStart, k = 0; i <= kolorStop; k++, i++) {
myButton[k] = myButtonGroup.add ("button", undefined, warstwa.pageItems[i].contents);
myButton[k].label = warstwa.pageItems[i].contents;
myButton[k].onClick = function () { wybranyKolor = myButton[k].label; myWindow.close(); }
The result:

But buttons don't work, wybranyKolor returning 'undefined'. If I change "wybranyKolor =  myButton[k].label" to "wybranyKolor =  myButton[k-1].label" I get proper answer but it is the same for all buttons so it looks that all buttons have the same action assigned. How to get each button to has unique name which can be passed to variable?
Probably I can achieve the same with radio buttons' list but with buttons it is one click less for the user.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating P&P Sheets For Road

Dec 10, 2013

I am creating P&P sheets for my road.  I created view frames, and when I got to create sheets, I pick "all layouts in new drawing".  I go to open the new drawing up, but all that shows up/tranfers is the profile and alignment, nothing else comes over ( proposed linework, existing linework, etc.)??????

AutoCad 3D :: Creating Surface For Road At Section

Oct 9, 2013

I am having difficulty in creating a surface for my road in 3d at this section, the points given are along the center lines and so far have been fairly straight forward for the fall of the road as there have been no junction up until now.

I am not using 3dpoly at this point, just plain old lines.

Road 1 displays where i am having issues and Road 2 display how it looks in 2d format (only at an angle)

AutoCad 2D :: Creating Road Centerline To Make Into Alignment

Jul 20, 2012

So today I was creating a road centerline to make into an alignment. The road has many curves. So I was making circles and connecting them with lines while snapping from tangent to tangent. So far, so good.

Went I go to trim the circles using the lines I drew tangent to tangent, it says that there are no intersecting edges. WTF? When I zoom way in, the line is not touching the circle. Now, I know that visually that is NBD. When I run a distance check, snapping from endpoint to perpendicular, there is a measurement of zero. UGH!

So to get work done I've been having to break the circle and the 2 points, then erase the rest. This is such a PITA and I've never had anything like this happen.

P.S. I'm running Civil 3D 2013.

The top line is the circle, the bottom is the line tangent to it.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Surfaces In Layout Drawing

Jul 12, 2012

I've been doing a layout drawing of a plant

The floor of the plant is split into different faces to denote walkways etc.

When i saw they were missing from the drawing i thought it could be because i haven't  'included surfaces'.

I clicked on include surfaces on the model and it worked!

However, when the green arrow update finishes, they disappear, and the include all surfaces box is unticked! i didn't untick it, so what did?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Two Surfaces Do Not Interact

Jun 14, 2013

I'm trying to create a surface under my 'existing ground' surface. There is shallow rock where one of our projects is located and using geotechnical data I want to create a 'rock surface' at the known rock elevations. I just want this surface for visual reasons and do not want it to interact with the existing ground or pipe network.

I have 4 places along the roadway where I know the rock elevations. I created new points around each known point with the same elevation so there would be more than just four points on the surface and so I could make it the width of the road allowance. But when I look back to my profile of the road, it shows the existing profile drop to the rock surface at each place that I created points for the rock elevation. Not sure how to make it so the existing ground surface doesn't pick up the new points I added for the rock elevations.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Creating A Solid From Different Surfaces

I'm having trouble creating a solid from different surfaces. 

I already tried the surface stick, but it seems that it is still not a solid. (How can I check this?) The part is still yellow. If I try to apply the sculpt feature it says: 

Modeling failure: A valid body cannot be constructed based on the selected inputs.

It 's a quiet complex shape. You find here: [URL].....

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Inside Masks On Surfaces

Sep 19, 2013

I'm modeling a couple different alternatives, and I want to make an inside mask on EG where my FG surface will be.

Is my workflow the problem, or are surface masks just buggy? 

I've created three EG surfaces, EG-1, EG-2, and EG-3.  I pasted the dref'd EG into each one, so now I have three copies of EG, one for each design option.  Each surface is on its own layer.

I have three FG surfaces, one for each design, FG-1, FG-2, FG-3.  I want to use the outer border of each FG in turn to make an inside mask for its respective EG surface. I can make one, masking FG-1 out of EG-1.  When I move on and try to make the mask for FG-2 to mask EG-2, no mask is created. Is it not working because I pasted the same original EG into each of the three EG option surfaces? Do I need to promote the original dref'd EG and copy it two more times, so each mask is applied to a completely unique surface?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Thickness Contours (difference Between 2 Surfaces)

Mar 1, 2012

I have created 2 surfaces of a matierial that is buried, using drill hole data.  I have a surface for the top, and then a surface for the bottom of this material.  I then created a 3rd suface comparing these 2, creating an isopac contour showning the thickness of the material.  My question is there a way to make the zero (0) contour show up?  I have a .5 contour interval, but 0 doesn't generate.  Could i be missiing something in the settings?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Automatically Creating Breakline From Existing Surfaces?

Nov 15, 2012

Our company, was contracted to create a DTM of a residential neighborhood using our Lieca HDS C10 Laser Scanner.  Utilizing the Leica software I was provided LandXML file that contained a 2ft by 2ft Mesh surface along with breaklines for the edge of roadway, driveways and sidewalks, which was imported into Civil 3D 2012.   

Our client now wishes for us to provide them with a breakline for the crown of the roadway.  My first thoughts on calculating such breakline was to set the Contours at an interval of 0.05' to identify the crown of the road, then drawn the break line along the crown based on contours. 

Is there a way to automatically create a Breakline from Exisitng Surfaces?

AutoCad :: Creating Surfaces / Profiles / Horizontal And Vertical Alignments

Jul 26, 2012

My question is "Can I create surfaces, profiles, & alignments using AutoCad2012?"

I know if I had Civil3D2012 I could do it, but can it be done with the Regular version I should say.

At my previous job I was using Civil3D2010 (darn economy Government job did lay offs) and now I'm using CAD2012 with new employer and I'm realizing that there are a lot of functions/commands that I don't have.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Surfaces From Existing Contour Map For Volume Calculations

Aug 30, 2012

I am working on a project, I was given a file with the contour already mapped out. I am tasked with finding volume of a fill I had to create. I made a 3-D polyline at the elevation I want my fill to start from and going down to my final grade. How can I make surfaces with my map. I do not have any files to make the surface off of. What is the easiest way I can make a layer, TIN has already been done but no surfaces are in the file.

AutoCAD .NET :: Creating A New Layout From A Template?

Jun 28, 2012

I have a small project that I'm working on that inserts a new layout based on a user selected  template size (A, B, C or D sizes). I need the program to insert the layout along with the titleblock geometry from the existing A, B, C, or D dwt files.

I know how to add a new blank layout. However, I'm having some trouble determing how to insert the titleblock geomtry. I've read a number of posts on here related to layouts, and while they were informative, none of them covered exactly what I need to do.

If it is possible to create a sectional view from my model and place that section in a new viewport without changing my other viewports. I have several viewports in my drawing but I need a certain detail section of the model but I do not want any of my viewports to get affected.

I can not have anything added to my model, since later on I will be using this drawing as a xref and I only want the main model to be carried over and not a section detail.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Assembly Consisting Of Two Curbs Subassemblies

Jun 7, 2012

I'm trying to create an assembly that consists of two curbs sub-assemblies that are tied to independent alignments with a pavement section in between them.  I have been successful in actually creating an assembly with the two curb sections, but I cannot figure out how to define a line or pavement section that will connect one gutter to the other.

I have one curb tied to the main baseline and the other tied to an offset.  I have assigned horizontal alignments and profiles to the baseline and the offset.  The curbs actually place where I want them when viewed with the section editor.  I had thought that I could use the LinkToMarkedPoint subassembly and simply attach it to the gutter of one curb and to a marked point on the gutter of the other curb, but I can't get it to actually work.

Again, the curb alignment and profiles are completely in independent one another, and I need a way to define a pavement section (or just a surface) between the two gutters.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Creating New Layout And Zooming To Correct Region In View Port - Objects Vanish

Aug 28, 2012

We have a map of our primary lines in an ESRI .shp file, that superimposes nicely on our other shape files, for shoreline and rivers and everything else, that works fine. As part of some project planning I'm doing, I'm making a series of layouts, each taking a snapshot of an area, with a revision cloud around the lines we're planning to replace. 

I loaded the map up this morning and everything was as I saved it, but as I was creating a new layout and zooming to the correct region in my view port, every single revision cloud I drew disappeared. As did all the annotations and other labels I'd made - absolutely everything that isn't from a database just up and vanished. 

I've turned off all the database links, there's nothing covering them up, I had none of them selected and used no delete commands, all I did was create a new layout via copy and adjust the viewport on it, they're just gone.
