AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Launching Alignment Grid View / Alignment Entities

Aug 11, 2013

Launching alignment grid view/alignment entities,

I’m wondering if there is a way to launch alignment grid view/alignment entities (attached) without the need to first launching “alignment”? This dialogue box is quite essential in editing the values of radius, degree of curvature and deflection angle for the selected curve.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Reference Alignment Stationing Differs From Original Alignment

May 3, 2012

I using a data reference/shortcut to properly label an alignment in paperspace. However when I reference the alignment in and apply the labels the aren't the same as the original alignment that I am referencing. Is there a setting where I am supposed to apply a new beginning station.

Also it seems as though the stationing(distance) isn't even matching up 1:1 with the original drawing. For example in the original base drawing my alignment starts at 10+00 with the next PI at 14+76.98, but the stationing on the reference alignment starts at 0+83.33 with the very same PI being labeled as 1+23.08. So the very same distance is 476.98' in the real design and the drawing it's being referenced in, but the stationing of the referenced alignment shows it as 39.75 Units.

I've attached a screen of the beginning of the alignment.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Change Alignment Label Style Set After Alignment Has Been Created?

Jul 18, 2013

Using Civil 3d2012, Is it possible to change the alignment label style set after the alignment has been created?  For example, for an alignment that was created with alignment label set X - change the label set to alignment label set Y?  It seems like this should be pretty easy, I must be missing something obvious.

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: Style Components On Alignment Not Showing Properly

Jan 8, 2014

I have alingment style components set to various layers, where I control their plot and view style.  After years of successful control, recently I found that I the viewports are not displaying the layers correctly pertaining to the sytle.  For example, I have line & curve components set to a layer C-Road-Cl and all properties by layer.  Then in various viewports throughout the project, I'll set viewport overrides to control color and plotsytle of those components.

Today, I found that the C-Road-Cl layer will not control the view of the components or the plotsytle, and that the objects are only being controlled by the layer that the object is on.  But, this does not relate to Object Layers Drawing Settings, as I have the "immediate and independent layer on/off...." box unchecked.  Further, nothing seems to affect the color of the object in the viewport.  

After further research, I found that the a completely different layer is controlling the viewport display of the "line & curve" components (C-Road-Stan) and the alignment object layer is controlling the plotstyle.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Get Alignment ID From Section View?

Nov 28, 2013

With ProfileView I can get Alignment Id.
pv= trans.GetObject(entRes.ObjectId, OpenMode.ForRead) as ProfileView; ObjectId idAlin = pv.AlignmentId;

 Now, I want to do  the same but  for SectionView.
sv= trans.GetObject(entRes.ObjectId, OpenMode.ForRead) as SectionView;
 but there isn´t :          sv.AlignmentId;

Are there any ways to get Sample Line Group Id from section view either section view name  or id?

I would like to get station value from selected section view by pick too.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Section View From Alignment?

Jun 20, 2013

Right, I'm working on a pressurenetwork for a new drinkwaterpipe. I created an alignment from network using the launch pad in the associative tab. 

The alignment is crossing several other pipes and cables. What I made using the alignment is a surface profile and the profile of the drinkwaterpipe. Now I want to project the crossing cables and pipes into the profile view. 

Now unfortunately it doesn't 'cut' the crossing cables and pipes at the alignment intersection, which would result in circles in my profileview. Instead it projects whole strengs of pipe. 

Is there any way to create a section view from an alignment from start to end, instead of sample lines perpendicular?

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.

I'm using C3D 2014.

When I create layouts using the "All layouts in the current drawing" option, the north arrow does not align to the viewport rotation.  

But when I use "Number of layouts..." and "All layouts in one..." options, the north arrow block aligns correctly.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Superelevation Labels In Plan View

Dec 30, 2013

Is there a way of adding superelvation data such as full superelevation cross slope to an alignment curve label in plan view?

In my case we add a label for each horizontal curve with critical curve data such as PI Station, Delta, Degree of Curve, etc... but I can't seem to find a way of adding any superelvation information to the plan view as a label.  Ideally I would like to be able to add the maximum cross slope value and superelevation critical stations to the label.

There is a way of adding the superelevation critical stations a labels to the alignment similar to how PC's or PT's  are labeled, but it does not give the cross slope value.

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 Inventor :: View Label Alignment Error

Mar 21, 2012

I'm noticing that on some of my drawings that the view labels are not aligning correctly to the respective views. I have view labels set by the drawing styles to appear at the bottom center of the view by default.

The problem occurs when I go to move the view to a different area on the drawing. The view label ends up on an obscure part for the drawing. When I realign them manually, save, close and reload the drawing, the view labels still appear on obscure parts of the drawing and need to be realigned again. Only some views are doing this and I'm not sure what is causing this. It happens with (but not limited to) base, detail and section views.

FYI, I'm using Inventor Pro 2012 SP1 build 190 64-bit. I'm working from Inventor DWG (not IDW) files.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Comes Up Short

Nov 13, 2012

I have a project that comes and goes. It was actually started in Softdesk. Right now I'm working in Civil 3D 2012. I have an alignment that represents the left edge of pavement. Although I'm calling an offset alignment. It was created before they existed. So it's not linked to the centerline. There have been many changes to it over the past few years. Now it has a problem.

I wanted to edit in the Panorama. Right-click > Edit Alignment Geometry > select Alignment Grid View from the Alignment Layout Tools. When I went to the last segment in the Gird View, which was near where I wanted to edit, a segment about two thirds of the way along the Alignment was highlighted. Further investigation showed that although the whole Alignment would highlight when selected, all commands said the Alignment ended much sooner than the end station.

I've found that that alignment has been broken for quite a while but was intact at one time. My question is - What's the best way to repair/recreate it. I know I can explode it and create a replacement Alignment from the resulting entities. But is that the best way?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Name Cap Style

Oct 24, 2012

This is strange. I wanted to label just the alignment name in a couple of places. I have an Alignment Name Label Style that does this. I now notice that it will capitalize some of the lower case P's in the curve label. Not the line label just the curve. They're applying the same style. It also changes back to lower case if I drag the label.

The style has one component and that is the Alignment Name and has Preserve Case set.
