AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Adding Profile Elevations To Alignment Labels

May 10, 2010

Is there a way in C3D to add elevation information from a profile to an alignment label? What I'm trying to do is add labels to an alignment in a plan view with elevation information from a profile design associated with that alignment at a particular station. For example, the note would read:

STA: 12+83.67
ELEV: 435.87

I can't figure out how to add any elevation data to the alignment note. I really don't want to have to create a section and a corridor surface, but that's the only way I can think of right now... and I'm not sure that would actually let me add a station and elevation in the same note in a plan view.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Synchronizing Data Shortcuts Breaks Reference To Alignment In Profile Labels

Sep 6, 2013

I have some storm sewer alignments that I've put into profiles in C3D 2011.  The pipe network that I used to create the alignments from is a reference created from a data shortcut.   I've created profiles of these storm sewer alignments, and the station labels for the storm structures are displayed at question marks until I go into the structure properties for each structure and link it to the correct alignment.  

The problem is that whenever I synchronize my data shortcuts because someone has updated something, all of the links in each structure to the alignments disappears and I am back to? for my stations in the profiles and I have to go go fix it again. how to keep this from breaking?

I do see this recent message [URL]  that appears to be a similar problem, but it was said in that thread that this problem was introduced with C3D 2012, but I am using C3D 2011.....

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Adding Alignment Profile To Existing Pview

Nov 13, 2012

I have one surface "EG" and two alignments, I'll call 1 and 2. The profile view already has the alignment 1 surface projected on it. I go to profile>Create Surface Profile and select alignment 2, Surface EG, go to ADD it but the profile list is empty. Shouldn't it already be populated with alignment 1 and all I'm doing is adding 2 to it? Both alignments are in the same site.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Why Does Not Consider Curve Labels As A Part Of Alignment Labels

May 3, 2013

I think it is normal to want a style showing stationing, speed design stattions, etc.But.... Radii of curves ? Clothoid parameters ? 

Why is the reason Autodesk developers think that designers dont want to see this information instead of "add labels, aligments, multiple segments,. etc .... 

(aligment by aligment ...... of a whole project ?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Style Vs Alignment Labels - PI Treated Differently?

Apr 6, 2013

I have a question on Alignment PI's. (Point of Inflection/Intersection)I have an alignment where some PI's have curves, others are merely hard bends.

Is there a way to automatically label the PI's even if they have an associated curve? (I'd like PI, PC and PT)Alternatively, can I only show markers at PI's without curves?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Profile Bandsets With More Than 2 Profile / Surface Elevations Shown

Mar 14, 2013

Im creating a Profile Bandset and would like to have multiple surface/profile elevations shown, ie: EG, FG, Back of Curb and Back of walk. While creating this bandset I see that the text component editor properties only has code for profile 1 elevation and profile 2 elevation in the properties area, which the code for this looks like below.

<[Profile1 Elevation(Uft|P2|RN|Sn|OF|AP)]>
<[Profile2 Elevation(Uft|P3|RN|AP|Sn|OF)]>

Ive tried to write my own code using the profile 2 as an example but it doesnt seem to work as a 3rd surface/profile and only seems to mimic the profile 2 elevation when placed in the band

My questions are as follows

1) does Civil 3d only allow 2 surface elevations in any band set? if it does allow more profiles/surface elevations what am i missing to create it? 

2) if Civil 3d does alow for multiple surfaces to be shown in the band set how do i get the text component editor to supply the extra profile elevation codes? or would i need to create from scratch

3) if i need to write the code from scratch does any listing of the codes and meanings of each code ie what does RN, Uft, Sn and so forth do and mean .

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: FG Elevations At Alignment

Sep 12, 2005

. How to assign proposed elevation to layout alignment along each station?. I know there is a way in LDT to assign proposed elevations to s specific range of stations or the full alignment, under menu "profiles/ FG Vertical Alignments/Create COGO Points" I am looking for the same one in C3D.

2. How to add connecting alignment label and station in profile view. For example I have an main alignment and in-between lot of other alignments are meeting with this alignment.

I want to show in profile view of the main alignment the meeting alignment's name and the station it meets with?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Make Sure Annotated Surface Labels Spot Elevations From 3D Design Drawing

Dec 19, 2013

How can I make sure the annotated surface labels spot elevations from my 3d design drawing which is being xrefed into a new Precise Grading Breakout Sheet plots screened?

The Label Style which I created for the annotated surface label spot elevations has all its properties set to be ByLayer for example its color and lineweight.  The Layer I assigned the Label Style was assigned to a layer with a color and plot style that should plot any object screened.  Color 8 and Plot Style Screened.

What other steps am I missing to assure myself that this Label Style will plot screened in my new Precise Grading Breakout Sheet?

I also made sure that the xref drawing in which this Surface spot elevation has the correct colors and lineweights and Plot Styles in my new Precise Grading Breakout Sheet.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Geometry Points Of Superimposed Profile To Alignment Label

Mar 1, 2013

I have an alignment label that I normally use to show the PVI's of a profile in the plan view.

This is a little unusual, but in a specific case I wanted to design my profile at one alignment, but show it at another.  I designed my swale profile in the pathway profile view and then superimposed the swale profile on the swale profile view.  I then went back to the swale alignment to add these labels.

It's a no-go AFAICT.  The only profile available for me to select for these labels is the original ground profile from the surface.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Bands - EG Elevations Blank

Jun 28, 2011

Civil 3D 2011: 

I have 7 roads in my drawing and all of the profile data bands except one are correct.  We first started with an overall profile with the EG created from a surface and the FG created by drawing in profile, then created multiple profile views.  The only thing wrong with the one road profile is the data band is not showing the EG elevations.  The strange thing is under Profile View Properties - Bands Tab, Profile 1 is set to EG and Profile 2 is set to FG, so it recognizes it is there and is also shown in the profile, however no elevations.  I have tried recreating the multi profile views.  Attached is a screen shot to give you a visual.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Existing Profile To Show FG Elevations

Feb 15, 2013

I'm currently working on a profile and I just don't understand why my profiles barely show any stations.  It doesn't even show the very first station.  I remember checking on a box that mentioned showing the 1st station and still nothing.  I've gone into the edit band style and turned on the labels at minor stations but it just turned on the FG/EG elevations.

I've added a picture showing what i'm talking about.  It only shows stations 31+00 and 32+00.  Not 30+00 or the 50' increments.  Also, while I'm on the subject.  How do I get something proposed into this existing profile to show FG Elevations.  Example if I just wanted to strike a straight line from 30+00 to the end where the elevation is a 91' & 86'.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Adding A Building Block With Elevations To A Surface

Sep 4, 2013

When working with multiple building pads and configurations change rapidly. Is there a method to add a Block or Xref into a Civil3D Surface under Drawing Objects? If so, how could you do it.

I want to have a building block type 1 that I can update the block or xref then updates the surface rather than doing each one individually. The Block would have a FFE of 0.00 and then the stoops, etc would either be a 0.1 drop or so.

I have created an alignment, and have the stationing labels on a different layer than the actual alignment linework. I have frozen the layer with the alignment on it in a viewport, but not the layer with the labels. However, when I regen, the labels disappear. I need to have the labels visible, and the linework off.
