AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Aligning Different Subassemblies At Intersection?

Jul 23, 2013

issue with my Corridor.  It involves the intersection of a main road alignment and a secondary road. Thing is my main road has a 6' shoulder whereas my secondary road doesn't have a shoulder at all. I used the Intersection Wizard to create the Intersection, but the two templates don't align. Without the shoulder the ditches don't line up. I tried drawing a polyline between the two ditches and targeting it and that worked, but then realized that going from 6' shoulder to no shoulder wasn't working either so when I tried to target a polyline from the 6' shoulder to the edge of pavement all kind of stuff happened that didn't make sense to me.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Intersection Design Using Intersection Tools

Mar 6, 2013

I am trying to create an intersection design using the Intersection Tools in C3D 2012.  I followed the steps in the tutorials, created a corridor on the major road, splitted the regions, created the intersection and added it to the major road corridor, and connect the regions with the intersection portion. 

I used the same assembly throughout the design just for simplicity, however, i notice that there are gaps of curb between the curb return section and the through section (as outline in red rectangles).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Specify Code Set To Be Used On Subassemblies

Jul 11, 2013

How do I specify the code set to be used on subassemblies when creating an intersection? I want to specify this in a command setting so that the intersection is built correctly without me having to edit feature lines in the corridor properties for th intersection.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Subassemblies - Pkt / Dll And Different Computers

May 15, 2013

how subassemblies work, vis a vis pkt files & all the files created in the ProgramData folder (.atc, .cfg, .dll, .emd, .pvd, .xaml, pdb)?  Here's our situation:

A user will make a subassembly, save it locally.  The subassembly is used in a corridor.  A different user tries to access this file: the subassembly is there (shows in plan), but the parameters are empty and that part of the assembly doesn't run.  The subassembly doesn't appear in the Tool Pallet.  You do get a .NET error when trying to look at the subassembly.

How we fix this is to open up the C:ProgramDataAutodeskC3D 2013enuImported Tools folder on the computer which made the subassembly, copy everything, and paste it into the other computer's C:ProgramDataAutodeskC3D 2013enuImported Tools folder.  How/why doesn't the drawing which has the subassembly in it just work??  And moving forward, how can we share drawings with custom subassemblies?  Remap everyone's .net search path to a network drive?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Subassemblies At Different Slopes Targeting Each Other

Nov 15, 2013

I have a ditch and a road that need to follow separate profiles but be integrated with each other as a single corridor and the ditch's 3:1 slope needs to meet up with the road's 2% slope.  Is it possible to have the two subassemblies target each other without having to create a dummy surface or a feature line for targeting to?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Add Labels To Assemblies / Subassemblies?

Dec 15, 2011

I was wondering if there is a way to add labels to assemblies/subassemblies.  When I use generic subassemblies or subassemblies I have created in SAC there aren't labels such as slope or offset/elevation.  At this point I am stuck creating labels in each of my section views and this can become very tedious.

I understand the procedure for IMPORTING a pkt file from SAC into C3D.  But is there a way to go the other direction?I want to use certain SAs that come with OOB C3D -- but I want to customize them.

Of course I can recreate them -- but I'd rather not start from scratch (ESPECIALLY where it comes to the codes).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Using Customized Subassemblies And Parts Builder?

Aug 14, 2012

We are just starting with Civil 3D 2012.  We are doing a pilot project, and the engineer wanted to make a custom curb subassembly matching the exact dimensions (angle from bottom of curb to top of curb) as the county detail.  I didn't think that was necessary and thought we could use one of the generic subassemblies.  usually use the basic or generic subassemblies or do you create your own to match specific municipalities' details exactly?

Do you find that the parts that come with Civil 3D are usually sufficient for design or do you make a lot of custom parts?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Comparison Point On Conditional Subassemblies

Jul 9, 2013

I need to create a corridor that has this section. So I'm using this assembly:  

on which I put 3 conditional fill subassemblies on point A, one for fill conditions of more than 2 m that would daylight at 2:1 until it reaches 2 m down and then daylights at 1:3 until it reaches the EG. Then I have another for fill conditions of less than 2 m that only daylights at 2:1 to the EG, and the last one is for all cut conditions.

As expected I have the following problem in some stations that have fill conditions on A of less than 2 m but more than 2 m on B:

Is there any way I can make B the comparison point without having the following problem on cut conditions?

Or that I could create an assembly with the condition that when I have a fill of more than 2 m on point B it daylights, from point B, at 1:3; but when B would be on cut conditions it daylights from A?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Corridors With Multiple Materials In Different Subassemblies

Apr 3, 2013

I am trying to set up a corridor with multiple materials with multiple pavement sections.  For example, I have concrete and asphalt surface pavement, about 4 different kinds of base material and 2 different sub base materials to use.  It doesn't seem like you can get quantities divided up like that.  It seems like you can only get the 'base' material counted up with the quantities and you can only assign one material to it.  Is the answer to create multiple corridors for each pavement type that has their own Code Set to assign to each corridor?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Provide Multiple Daylight Subassemblies With One Assembly

Jul 24, 2013

Have a question regarding multiple daylight subassemblies, don't know if it is possible.  So I have an assembly with a trench SA in cut condition and a project to surface in fill condition, I built the corridor with this assembly and most of things look fine.  However, there is a short stretch (in cut condition) of the corridor that I would like to modify such that a trench is not provided.  I know I can create a new assembly with my desire condition, then create a new region and drop that assembly there, but I am wondering if there any other way to achieve my goal without another assembly.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Modify Assembly - Some Of Existing Subassemblies Move

Oct 24, 2012

I've got several assemblys built for a road project. the problem is whenever i modify an assembly by adding a subassemby, some of the existing subassemblies move. they stay attached to the assembly but they disconnect from the part they were attached to. i can move them back so the assembly looks correct but when i rebuild the corridor chances are they show up wrong. i've tried 'move to' and just grabbing and snapping. i can eventually get it attached but not without trial and error. i'm running c3d2012.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Transition Between Subassemblies - Show Up In Cross Sections

Jun 25, 2012

Along my corridor I have different assemblies I used.  My sidewalk is curb side in some locations and in different locations there is a boulevard between the curb and sidewalk. I want to transition between these different  assemblies and I want that transition to show up in the cross sections I cut. Isn't there a way to tell Civil 3D to transition from one assembly to the next one as you could in Eagle Point?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Edit Subassemblies In Corridor Modeling Catalog

Apr 2, 2013

I am using C3D 2013.

Is it possible to edit a sub-assembly in the Corridor Modeling Catalog (Imperial.NET) see attached image.

The company I work for has several users working off one network server. I would like to make a revision to one of the dimensions in the sub-assembly "UrbanCurbGutterGeneral" (the default gutter width is 16" I would like to make the default 18"). I'm assuming I need to change this in the Catalog so every users tool palette will be updated also.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Subassemblies Not Displaying Correctly In Section Views?

Apr 18, 2012

I am running a corridor in Civil 3D 2012 that has two baselines.  Issues with multiple baselines in section views, but understand this problem was eliminated in 2012? In any case, this does not seem to by my issue.  Attached you will find a section view through the two baselines (one is for a general overlay, the second for widening).  The section view seems to display correctly at station 3+75, but 25' feet further down the road it does not display the corridor assemblies correctly (as can be seen by the lack of a ditch and shoulder overlay in the second image).

I have checked the code styles to make sure all links are included, as well as the comparing section view properties.  All settings and styles appear to be the same, and the corridor seems to be built correctly.  If I sample the Finished Grade corridor surface, it displays in section view as if the ditch were there (see third image).

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 Civil 3D :: Creating Surface Boundary When Using OverlayWidenMatchSlope Subassemblies

Jul 12, 2012

I'm creating a corridor to widen a road on the left and right sides.  I am using OverlayWidenMatchSlope, with various other subassemblies.  In places it daylights, in places there's a cut wall modeled from generic links.  I am trying to create a good boundary for the corridor surfaces but I'm puzzled by one thing.  The OWMS subassembly has a P2 code, but the corridor will not generate a featureline connecting the P2 codes.. 

I will try adding another baseline, and a new subassembly that will just use a generic link to target the sawcut line (the insert point for OWMS).  That should give me a featureline I can use for a surface boundary.  Is there a way to generate that featureline from the inside edge (the insert point) of the OWMS subassembly?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Section Views - Some Subassemblies Only Showing On Certain Stations

Oct 20, 2011

I am having an issue with my section views. Some of my subassemblies are only showing on certain stations. If I view the stations on the cross section editor, the corridor looks just fine, but when I go to the section sheet where the corridor is x-referenced, the driveway disappears.

I have rebuilt the corridor numerous times, detached and reattached the drawing, made a new drawing and recreated the sample lines to no avail. Attached are some pictures to show the disappearing driveway on the right side of the street.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Inserting And Aligning Live Map To Drawing?

Sep 16, 2013

i am trying to attach a live map to the c3d2014.

first i set the projection and then it asks me  insertion point.

1)why the map do not come in at the correct location and c3d needs me to specify the incertion point?

2)then it asks the rotation. i thought that all maps are pointing at north. but if i set it at 90 degrees pointing straight to the north a get a litle rotation that becomes very noticeable as i move far from the incertion point.

if the 90degrees is wrong, how can i find the correct rotation to give the c3d?

3) ok. that map is incerted. can i pan , move it ?rotate it ? how ?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Intersection On Looped Corridor

Mar 12, 2013

I have a site access road that extends from highway into site and then loops around and intersects with itself. Would like to keep this as one alignment in order to make Super Elev and master alignment easy to control across project team.

Issue is, we would like to use Intersection wizard at the intersection but cannot, as we ony have one alignment. We could model the intersection the old way, using kerb returns with design profiles, but as the design is still in early stages the intersection is likely to be frequently revised.

how we could utilise intersection wizard in this scenario?
