AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Area / Square Area In Closure Summary Of Mapcheck

Oct 23, 2012

How to changes the settings for the "Square Area" in mapcheck's closure summary.  When I right-click the dwg name in the Settings tab of Toolspace and choose Edit Drawing Settings, then Ambient Settings, I see the Area settings, but in the closure summary, there is also "Square Area".  Why are these both there?  It WOULD be nice to show sq. ft. as well as acres, but I can't find anywhere to edit it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Area Units Displayed As Square Feet?

Jan 18, 2013

In Civil 3D 2013, when I execute the _area command, i get results in square feet as opposed to acres.  Under the ambient settings, the area unit is set to acre. how to get C3D to display my area in acres?  I just want it to list the area, not label it.

Also, is there a way to get it to display the area in BOTH acres and square feet?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Calculate Area Using Polyline - Calculation Not In Square Feet?

Dec 16, 2013

I was just wondering why when I try and calculate an area using a polyine, I am getting a readout of 1.80401967E+07, when I have it set to give me the calculation in square feet? It is an area of approx. 246 this because the area is so large? I am not sure what the "E" stands for or the "+07" at the end....

AutoCAD LT :: Area Calculation For Square Footage?

Sep 11, 2012

how the area calculation works for finding the square footage of a dwg.

I can easily get a rough estimate of square footage on L X W....but when i use the area measuring tool, i get total inches and a total sq foot estimate of 1.7xxxxx which i don't understand.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Obtaining Square Footage Of Area

Mar 11, 2013

I used to be able to obtain the sqare footage of an area with the AREA command. A list would generate about seven or eight lines, listing the square footage, inches, perimeter etc.

Now all i see is one line; the area/perimeter (see attachment). Did i change a setting somewhere to obtain this simplify version of the AREA cmd? Something is not right...

I tried the MASSPROP and MEASURE GEOM, those will not show the square footage. This used to be so easy, what am i missing...

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Draw Square By Area

Nov 27, 2013

I would like to be able to draw squares by the area they should have. So that if I need a square of 50m2 autocad automatically draws a square of sqrt(50) x sqrt(50)

Because right now I have to draw 200 squares with 100 different areas and I have to calculate and manually draw each one of them.

Photoshop :: Cropping Non Square Area

Jul 6, 2013

I have the following psd file which my designer provided for me: 

It's made up of all layers and smart objects and all stuff I have no clue about it. I need to make it so only the bubble is isolated, and everything else is eliminated (i.e. the character and the three bubbles going from his head are gone). Cropping almost works, but as you can see at the bottom the bubble if I try to do a rectangular crop it will catch some of the characters head and the three bubbles.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Choosing A Plot Area - Non-active Area No Longer Grayed Out

Apr 6, 2009

I've recently migrated from AutoCAD 2008 (non-industry specific) to AutoCAD 2010 so I don't know if this was an issue in 2009.

Back in 2008, when I choose the 'window' option when specifying a plot area, AutoCAD would show the workspace so that I could manually select a windowed plot area, and at the same time the whole workspace would be greyed out except the previously active window area.

This was handy, because we can have as many two dozen title-blocks (and therefore separate viewports) in paperspace, and knowing what plot area I last plotted or added as a saved page setup.

In 2010, it no longer does that. I now have to rely on the dashed border to know where the active plot area is/was (checked 'display printable area' in options>display tab) which I personally don't really like using.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: SSA Area Inlets

My question is, in SSA how would you model an inlet in say a parking lot that is NOT a curb inlet but an "area inlet" that is in sag. For the project, we are using Neenah grates and so would like to use the Neenah inlet manufacturer.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Parcel Area Not Shown

Oct 21, 2013

I am new to C3D and I have been going through all of the tutorials and learning everything I can from the given data, which has been amazingly useful.  Everything has been running spot on except today when I was going throughtthe parcels tutorial, I applied Parcel Number and Area to a group of parcels I created via the tutorial dwg file "Parcle-1A".  Everything displays correctly except the Area is not shown as it does in the sample pic.  I have applied the "Parcel Number And Area" to the Area Label Style, but it still does not display the area.  Only the Parcel Number.  Is there some part of this process that I am overlooking?  The tutorial dwg file is called "Parcel-1A".  It was too large to attach, but you can find all of the tutorial dwg files via the Help Menu.  It depends on your OS to where they are located.

If you go under Parcels Tutorial>Exercise 1: Creating Parcels from AutoCAD Objects, you can see exactly what I am working with.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Bounded Surface Area

Nov 24, 2013

I am trying to get C3D to report the surface area for a bounded area with no success.  I am aware of the Bounded Volume feature, which BTW appears to be retired in the 2014 release (AECCCFDBADDBOUNDEDVOLUME fails to produce any results). Obviously there have been some major changes.

What I want to do is retrieve a report for a defined section of a surface, regardless, of what type of surface it is.  I see this as simple as deriving the 3D areas of the trinangles within a bounds of a TIN.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Catchment Area Enhancements

Nov 15, 2012

I wish to have the ability to define runoff coefficient regions of a surface (using parcels, closed polylines, aecpolygons, mpolygons, etc...) such that when a catchment area is created, the weighted runoff coefficient is calculated. For a corridor surface, the runoff coefficient can be specified by the link code used to define the surface (defined in the code set style).

These surface coefficients should continue through pasting operations, i.e. a final design surface should have the runoff coefficents from the various corridor and grading surfaces used to define it.

Currently, I have to manually calculate the weighted runoff coefficient by first determining grass, aphalt, roof, areas per each catchment area.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Combining 2 Cut Area Surfaces

Mar 19, 2013

I have an oddly shapped "cut" area with various elevations that I want to create as a surface so that I can compare the volume with existing survey data. I've been able to get the basic "cut" template in 2 seperate surfaces, but now I want to combine them into 1 surface. When I paste one surface into another, the surfaces go haywire. I have attached a plan and cross section view of what the 2 surfaces (cuts) look like in relation to each other. how I could combine them into one surface and "trim" off the inside grading that overlaps..?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Grading - EG Covering Over The Cut Area

Feb 27, 2013

I have this problem with EG covering over the cut area.

The feature line is partially under the surface making a cut.

It should be a hole where EG and the slopes meet as the image shows!

When I make an infill for the fill area it makes the the bottom of the cut area but the surface stays as a top!

It is very clear in Object viewer!

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Depth Area

Nov 15, 2013

For a surface: I would like to a boundary above a inlet point that is 3" deep.

I would like something like catchment area but the ability to specify a depth distance. Or specify a depth in the water shed analysis in the surface properties.

The only way I know to do what I want is user defined contours for each elevation. Is there a better way to do get a specific shed area for a depth?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Improve Error Of Closure Of Parcels

Aug 9, 2012

Is there a way to improve the error of closure of a Parcel. I have one Parcel that has an EOC of 0.0161'. That's a little higher than I like to see. I understand that some of this has to do with the precision of the analysis. But with bearings to the second and distances to the hundredth, I'd like to think we could do better than that.

I suppose that if I changed the POB the closure might improve. But I want the POB to be the closest corner to an existing monument.
