AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 3 Line Profile Curb Transitions

Jul 6, 2012

we use three line road profiles.  If there is a bus pullout or lane transition we show the curb profile based on centerline stationing.  I'm able to generate a the corridor using a transition lane assembly from centerline  and targeting a widened offset alignment or just a feature line.  I can import the corridor curb feature line into a profile which would be a perfect solution, but it is all truncated. (i.e. no vertical curves)  I can create a profile of the offset alignment, but the stationing doesn't match centerline.

How can I either generate a non trunidicated profile from the corridor for my curb profiles? How can create a design profile of a transition/pullout curb line that I can target and plot against centerline stationing?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Curb Height Transitions

Aug 21, 2013

Trying to model a curb height transition in my corridor. Over about 15' I want to go from a 6" curb to flush. 

The only way I can seem to get it to show accurately is to leave a void in my corridor.   This allows the surface which is created from the corridor to model correctly and give me a transition of my curb height from 6" to flush.  Here's the object viewer showing it correctly: 

However, there are a few problems with this approach.  Mainly I've come to like the way the relatively new "extract corridor solids" tool (toolspace, toolbox, miscellaneous Utilities, corridor solids).  I use this to create a fairly nice looking Navisworks model.   With the void, now my model has a void.  It seems to me that there should be a way to have a subassembly that can target both the back of curb profile and the edge of gutter simultaneously.  I've tried with the standard subassembly "UrbanReplaceCurbGutter2" but with no luck.  Any successful modeling a curb height transition within their corridor?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Getting An Assembly To Follow A Top Of Curb Profile

Nov 6, 2012

I am trying to get a street assembly to follow a top of curb profile.  The profile is at the face of curb.  The centerline of the street is my assembly target profile and alignment.  I do not want to create an alignment for the curb.  The curb profile is based on the centerline alignment.  I can't figure out how to get a link that will track the curb profile at the face of curb.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Labels For Curb - Rounding Error

Apr 4, 2012

We sre doing 3 line profiles for a road and the left and right curb should be .13' lower than the centerline elevation.  In many cases we are getting .14' or sometimes more or less.  We tried resampling the cooridor with a tighter interval but still the same results.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Moving Curb Grades In Profile View?

Aug 20, 2012

I am having a problem with moving my profile grades. I go to Utilities under Corridors and create a profile for the left and right curb. They show up in my Alignment Profile, but when I click on one to move it, it disappears. When I type regen, it shows back up. I am trying to set my crossection grades in my Multiple Section Views.  I first create my Profile from Surface, then do a proposed centerline grade by Draw tangents with curves.  I create the corridor, put in the regions, go to corridor properties and pick the right and left corridor lines I have created. Then I set the existing surface and attach it to my profile. I create the sample lines and the Multi Section Views. Where am I screwing up?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Feature Line Style For Curb Return With Markers At The Deltas

Dec 5, 2013

I am trying to create a feature line style that would include markers similar to minor stations of an alignment at the End Points and 1/4D, 1/2D & 3/4D locations. The thought is that I could use these on curb returns, and the markers would identify the locations we provide construction staking.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Dynamic EOP Profile Based On Cross Slope From Center Line Profile

Jun 28, 2012

The intersection wizard makes dynamic EOP profiles based off of the cross slope from the centerline.  Well the intersection tool doesn't always work with funky intersection layouts.  Is it possible to manually create a dynamic EOP profile based on the cross slope from the centerline profile?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Change Line Weight Of Profile Line

Jul 6, 2013

I seem to be having trouble changing the lineweight of my profile line.  I have changed the line weight in the layer properties, in the Profile properties and tried changed the line weight in the pen style.  Everywhere I could think I try to make the line thicker but when I plot, the line is still the same and difficult to distinguish from the grid blocks of the profile view.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Markers Do Not Line Up

Sep 11, 2012

I have a profile view with the existing ground profile shown. The alignment the profile is referencing was stretched at the front and now the profile markers do not line up with the profile line. The profile line updated as it should have, but the markers did not.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Line Visibility

Dec 10, 2012

I'm doing a road project. i've got profile grades of existing left and right ditches. in some sections we're redoing the ditches so i've got proposed left and right ditch profiles. what i want to show is where i've got proposed ditch grades, i don't want to show existing ditch grades.

The new ditches happen intermittently on the road so i would need to be able to turn off the existing ditches at various places. is this possible without exploding my existing ditch grades?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Intersection - Curb Return

Feb 7, 2011

C3D 2010 user

I have a problem modeling intersection. This is first time I am modeling intersection. I have gone thru' and actually did all intersection tutorials offered by C3D and naturally I felt like I am ready for it.

But in real world I am not. I am trying to model intersection and I keep getting error as "Value on Wrong side of alignment to profile". I looked at target mapping and thinks so that all is okay (may be not). I am attaching snapshot of error message as well as plan view. I wanted to forward actual dwg but size is too large to post.

Point to note:This is Left lane driving setting. I realized this after I created alignment/profile/assemblies but before I tried intersection modeling. 

I did 8 iterations before this post.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Curb Drop In Corridor

Jan 9, 2013

I have a corridor with multipule intersections. I modeled the primary road straight through the intersections. Created ETW alignments and profiles to target in the intersections. Most intersections did not require this but one complex one did. All other quadrents in this intersection worked out except for this one (see attached). In this intersection the primary road alignment leaves the centerline of the road and transitions to a lane. I can't seem to figure out what this one quadrant is trying to target?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Corridor Back Of Curb

Feb 12, 2013

I am new to corridors and am having some trouble with this.  I have an assembly that has a paved roadway, 2' curb and gutter and a sidewalk.  Along the road the curb varies to allow for on street parking.  I have the front and back of sidewalk attached to an alignment, so it is exactly where it needs to be.  I have an alignment that my EOP follows as well, and that seems to be ok. The problem is the back fo curb in the corridor.  Instead of being 2' offset from the EOP, it is shifted 2' perpendicular to the baseline. Please take a look at the attached picture.

I think I can get it done by making each parking "bump out" it's own region using the EOP alignment, but that will take a lot more time and make my file a whole lot bigger. Being a corridor rookie, I am hoping I am just missing something.

I'm using Civil 3D 2013.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Create Feature Line From Profile

Jul 15, 2013

is there a way to draw a line in the profile view and create that line into a feature line? and if there is can i project that line into the plan? i know that you can make a feature line in the plan and project that feature line into a profile view, just wondering if you could basicly do the reverse. i don't want to make a coridor.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Profile Layout From Feature Line

Oct 4, 2012

I want to create a profile layout by feature line. Is it possible?I have a pipe about 3 miles long, an alignment along the pipe, and a provie view showing the exisitng surface and pipe network. The pipe network was created from a feature line. I projected the feature line to the profile.

This is why I want to do this: I need to label the horizontal and vertical angle points of the pipe in plan view. I crated a style that shows the station and elevation. I want the elevation to reference the profile. But it only gives me the elevation of the surface and I need the top of pipe elevation.

I tried crate profile by layout and traced over the top of the pipe in profile but its 3 miles and it will take a long time. How to get what I want done faster?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Label Grade In Line In Profile View

Jul 16, 2012

I have a regular AutoCAD line in a profile view and wondered if there is a way of labeling the grade of the line. I'd think I could use and expression to calculate it. But I don't know how to automatically adjust for the vertical exaggeration without having to have a separate expression for all possible situations.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Mask Out A Portion Of Ground Line Profile

Feb 7, 2013

I have cut a ground line in profile view.  Is there a way to "mask out" a portion of the ground line in the profile?  I need to detail some stair but the surveyors only shot the top and bottom tread.  I don't want to add points to the surface, I just want to draw the steps in and place them in the correct profile location.  And I don't want two horizontal alignments.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Feature Line From Alignment / Profile?

Oct 25, 2013

C3D 2013, Win 7, 64 bit

When I try to create a feature line using an alignment/ profile, sometimes it gives me a feature line for the entire alignment, even though my profile is only a small segment.  I made sure I selected the correct profile, and I even deleted all other surface profiles just in case.  But it still gives me a wonky feature line for the entire alignment.

However, in the same file, other profiles have worked perfectly.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Apply Center-line Profile To 2D River

May 11, 2012

I created a 2d drawing of a river I am building and constructed a centerline. I already have a surface of the existing ground created from which i created an alignment of the centerline and created a profile showing the existing grade along the centerline. Then I created another alignment on the same profile which shows the bottom of my river that I want. I now want to calculate the cut and fill of my project but don't know how. Is there a way I can create a surface of my river from my profile? Or what process do I follow to apply my centerline profile to my 2d river.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Grading Objects From Curb Lines - Linking?

Oct 12, 2011

I have been creating grading objects from my curb lines, assigning grades using the editor, then offsetting that line for the BACK of curb, and using the raise-lower command to raise the curb line height. If I edit the original face of curb line (gutter grade) then I go back and redo the process. Is there any way to intelligently link these two lines so that if one gets edited C3D knows the other is 0.5 feet higher (or lower) than its neighbor?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Single Line Manhole And Pipes In Profile View

May 31, 2007

I remember seeing an article or web cast on how to create a style to display a single line for a manhole. It may have been about using the parts create tool. But for the life of me, I can’t remember where I saw it.

Also I had created a style in C3D2007 to display the pipes in profile as a single line. This was done by drawing the flow arrow in a non printable colour over the top of the pipe.In C3D2008 this is no longer possible. So now what?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Line And Band Text Shift In Viewport

Sep 23, 2010

We are using Civil 3D 2010, Version 4.1 and it is being used on both WinXP and Win7.

This is an issue that has been coming up at different times with profile views and them shifting when viewed from our viewports in our layout tab.  It looks correct in the model space.  But it shifts to the right 10' in the layout tab.  We have 7 tabs in this drawing.  I have looked through all of the profile view settings and it does not seem like any of these are the issue.  I created a new viewport in the same tab and received the same shift to the right.  I then created a new tab in the same drawing (not copied from the one that has the issue), created a new viewport, and the shift is not there.  The PSLTSCALE, MSLTSCALE, and LTSCALE are all set to 1 in all of th tabs.

Woudl there be a layout tab setting that is causing this? This is happening on all of our machines with this drawing so I know it is not a specific user/machine issue.  I have attached a .pdf showing the three cases described above if that were to provide any additional insight.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Project One Feature Line To Section Group Or Profile?

Is there a way to project just one feature line (or anything appropiate...polyline, 3d poly etc) into the sections group or profiles ?

The thing is that Projection tool, labels everything that's a Block, Point, 3d poly ...etc to the sections group.

And it puts all labels in the same layer.

My project theme requires to project forest limit on every section. This is appearing on the survey as a polyline along the road. Civil Engineer / Infrastructure of metropolitan transports [URL]
