AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Station Offset Label

May 19, 2012

I am trying for last hour but cannot make this work. I have attached screen shot of a dynamic label with some text. The problem is as you add degree symbols and inch (") symbols and paratheses to the text, the leader starts to intersect the station value. I want to move the leader a little below the sta. value so the station vallue is readable. When I move the leader the text moves with it. I tried everything in edit label text option but cannot seem to fix it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Set Up Alignment Station Offset Label

Oct 7, 2013

I would like to set up an alignment station offset label that when in the dragged state, offsets the arrowhead from the actual insertion point on the alignment in any direction and distance I specify. I am preparing some plans for a water line. I am working at a 1"=200' scale so all of the blocks representing fittings are scaled up so they are legible.

In some instances, the fittings are right next to each other. If I place an alignment station offset label at the actual station and drag it away from the alignment, the arrowhead is pointing to the station but not the fitting. Is there a way to offset the arrowhead of a C3D label in dragged state other than in the direction of the leader?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Station Offset Label Blind Spot

Mar 26, 2013

I am labeling station and offsets from my alignment for curb returns and such and for some reason if the offset point is directly perpendicular from an alignment PC or PT the label can't find the alignment information. It's like there is a blind spot.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Editing Multiple Alignment Station Offset Labels

Mar 19, 2013

I am trying to edit labels for a particular alignment. All labels are along the same alignment and use the same alignment style. I need to change "defl." in each of those labels to "defl:". So simply changing the period to a colon. But it is a lot of work to go through each label and then in edit label text and then change it. Plus, I have to do this on 12 sheets. That's like 300 labels! Is there a quick way to achieve this. If it were simple mtext or dtext then I could use the find and replace option, but these are civil 3d alignment station offset labels? Is there a lisp that can accomplish this task? I am using Civil 3D 2010.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile View Station Labels

May 23, 2012

I have a profile view created with several surfaces including a proposed surface.  The stationing on the X-Axis of the profile view corresponds correctly with the PT's, PC's etc on the proposed surface profile, however the the labels that are actually on the profile line are giving me values such as PC: 0+668.62 when it should read 21+93.63. 

I can't seem to find a correlation in the two numbers and am having difficulty changing the style to correctly reflect the stationing.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Targeting Offset Alignment Layout Profile With Corridor Lane Assembly

Jul 19, 2012

For some reason I cant seem to target an offset alignment layout profile with my corridor lane assembly.  I can target the existing the existing groundprofile with the same  offset alignment, but the layout profile when targetted does not change the lane in my cross sections.  I can do this with civil 3d 2010, but not 2012.  I have tried other lane sub-assemblies and it doesn't make a difference.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Projected Objects Station In Profile View

Nov 25, 2011

I have set one station equation in my alignment and it displays correctly in horizontal view and in profile. But stations of projected objects after that equation are not correct in projected object label. It displays station values as it would be without station equation. If i manually insert profile view label for that point it is correct.

As you can see in attached image green station value (that one is label for projected points) is wrong because it does not take equation into calculation. How to make projected objects labels to consider station equation?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Mark Items In Alignment View To Display In Profile View?

Dec 20, 2012

I was wondering if after drawing an alignment, creating a profile, and profile view, is there a way I can mark items along the alignment so they could show up in the profile view.  I am laying out a pipeline and want to have the profile display a marker for items such as tees, elbows, reducers and other items.  The marker I would like to use will be something like the vertical style grade break markers.

Also on a side note, as each of these items will have a different name, is there a way that I can add these markers and then have each one with a unique name?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Station-offset Label Style That Will Drop Trailing Zeros In Offset?

May 14, 2012

I am trying to create a station-offset label style that will drop the trailing zeros in the offset section - e.g. 15' instead of 15.00', but if the offset is not at a whole number, e.g. 15.01, etc.  it will display the entire offset.

I created two expressions:  IF(OFFSET-TRUNC(OFFSET)=0,.1/12,.00000001/12)

and this one:  IF(OFFSET-TRUNC(OFFSET)!=0,.1/12,.00000001/12)

I then created two offset components, one called truncated, and one called full, and assigned the heights to match the expressions. 

I have attached the file, the style is ACHD-Sta Off-Rt [copy]

I imported Google earth surface (at eye alt 600m) to civil 3d 2012 and created an alignment of length 181m.

When I exported same alignment to Google earth , it showed the length as 190m ( the difference increases with increase in length of alignment) And also the profile view of the alignment in the Civil D & Google earth varies.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Import Alignment And Profile View Disappears?

Aug 8, 2013

We are working together with another firm here in town.  The are doing the road and we are doing the utilities.  They have established the alignments and profiles.  When I import them all the data comes in.  For whatever reason I do not have their profile views so I create my own profile view and put their profiles in them.

When they send an updated .xml file of all the alignments and profiles, they import okay but my profile views disappear.  I assume it's because in their .xml file that I import, there are no profile view defined.

Is there an options when you export and alignment to an .xml file that you can include the profile views with it as well?  This way when I import them I would get them.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Begin Station Inherited From Another Alignment

Aug 8, 2012

Can I inherit the station from one alignment as the begin station for another alignment?

For example. Alignment 1 is 1000 ft long and starts at sta 0+00.

At sta 8+01, Alignment 2 begins and goes off in another direction.

I manually enter 8+01 for begin station Alignment 2. Life is good. Still in the design stage, and customer needs to modify Alignment 1 to avoid something. Now Alignment 2 intersects Alignment 1 at sta 8+15, but same N/E coordinates.

I manually enter 8+15 for begin station Alignment 2.

It would be better if Alignment 2 could inherit the begin station based on the new stationing from Alignment 1.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Self-intersecting Alignment - How To Show Pipes In Profile View

Feb 12, 2013

Run profile on a self-intersecting street?  The one I'm dealing with is a dead end 'P' shape.  Logically, there are manholes in the intersection of the 'P', and logically to me, these structures need to show up in two places in the same profile view.  Of course, C3D doesn't realize that I want a certain structure to show up twice, and I'm not sure how to communicate that information to it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: No Response After Selecting Create Profile View When Creating Alignment

May 16, 2013

Having a rough time with Pipe Networks! I am working an example from the Mastering C3D book (P. 371) as in the following steps:

1.Clicked SS structure(16)

2.Selected Create Alignment from Network on ribbon

3.Selected last structure(18), hit Enter

4.Changed options as needed in Create Align from Network - Create Profile and Profile View check box: Selected

5.Changed options and clicked Create Profile View

At this point the program pauses, then a dialog box trys to partially fill the screen but is all white then fades away as fast as it appeared and I'm stuck with a paperweight that beeps at me everytime I click the mouse, no panning or zooming response at this time. The command line is prompting me for the profile origin. I can switch to other apps and bring up TM and when I attempt to end C3D then it tells me that it can't because waiting for response. I can then cancel the prompt to save the drawing and C3D exits the active command and control is returned.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Rectangular Junction Structure With Off Center Alignment Shown In Profile View

Jan 29, 2013

Is it possible for a civil 3d structure to be displayed correctly in profile view when the alignment does not pass through the insertion point of the structure.  See the attached screen capture.

The rectangular structure is a storage tank and there will be a pipe coming in on one end and the exit pipe will be on the adjacent side at the far end, just as the alignment shows - but the structure doesn't show correctly, or now how I expected.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Add Station And Offset To A Point

Jan 7, 2013

I currently have a drawing with a road alignment and stationing.  Is there a way to automatically station and offset a point that is not on the alignment line?  

For instance, our alignment line is the centerline of the road.  I need a station and offset of the new right of way line points at different places in the drawing.  I want to use the alignment stationing to have it automatically create the station and offset at the point I choose.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Station Offset Report By Point Group?

Feb 2, 2012

I am trying to use the Station Offset to Points report from the Reports manager. Currently, as far as I ca see, there is no way to select a group of points to include, either by point group or selection from the drawing.  There is only "Select All' or "Deselect All".  I want a report that will show the station, offset, raw or full description and elevation of a group of points related to an alignment/street.  I don't see that option.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Station Offset To Points Report Not Working?

Oct 31, 2011

A co-worker asked if I could create a report that listed the station and offset values for selected points & alignment.  After selecting "execute" for the Station Offset to Points report, the file gets hung up before I can select the points and alignment I want.

I've tried xml-ing out the desired points & alignment into another file and running the report from..

All other reports under Alignment and Points work fine (drawing does not have other C3D objects).

I'm using C3D 2011 version 3.
