AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Label Truncating?

Mar 23, 2011

how does one go about truncating surface contour elevation labels so they only show up to the tens place on the left side of the decimal (i.e. 50.25 instead of 5150.25)? I tried changing the rounding option under the style edit to "truncate" but that did not appear to change anything...?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Label Intervals

Feb 25, 2013

It must be the medication, but I just can't remember something I learned in the last couple weeks regarding contour label intervals. I've been using C3d 2013 for about a year now and had used LDD 2004 until the upgrade.  I've become pretty comfortable with the styles based implementation now.

What exactly controls the numeric value shown in a contour label? I've got them looking fine on my site. I imported my styles and settings to a coworkers site but for the life of me I cannot remember what I had to change to get the contour labels to show increments of 1 foot (they were showing fractions of a foot)… Typing the word "fractions" triggered my recall.  The problem and solution was in the drawing units.(Inches vs feet).

How much time I spent looking through the style settings in search of the one setting I was missing... both times!  One of the best ways to push things from short term memory into long term memory is "Increased active practice". 

One thing I learned this time:  The style settings are not always the source of the problem.  It could be something very basic. It may save time to check the basics first.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Label Line

May 31, 2013

I have been creating contour surface labels, which utilize a 3-point  contour label line with grips to adjust, and this is my question:

when i create a single contour label, clicking specifically on a contour i want labeled, the contour label line with the 3-grips extends beyond several contours and thus places a label at every contour it touches.  i can manually fix this by shorting the line, but this seems very inefficient. 

1. is there a setting to have the label only placed on the center grip of the three?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Label With Referenced Surface?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Locked Layer Causes Contour Label

Jul 15, 2013

I'm working in 2011.  Just labeling some contours in a new drawing, using the 'Multiple' setting.  I found I could only draw one tangent of Contour Label Line.  If I continued, I could click but no labels were created and on finishing the command I could see that those clicks had been ignored.  What gives?

I found that the labels were on the current layer, instead of the layer they're meant to use.I also realised that my current layer was locked (from the previous task).

if the current layer is locked, the contour labels ignore the layer setting that they are meant to use, and come in on the current layer instead.  And you can only draw one tangent's worth of contour labels at a time before finishing the command and restarting.  

Solution: make a different layer current or unlock your layer.

are contour labels generally created on the current layer and then moved to their proper layer?Is that why it hit a snag: it wasn't permitted to move the object to a different layer because the one it was on was locked?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Label Background Mask

Nov 30, 2011

I cannot get my contour label to mask the contour line that it sits on.  I have no problems creating contour labels for my surface (whether using single, multiple, or multiple at interval options).  I have set my contour labeling defaults to not display the contour label line, as well as set Label Mask Type to Contour Line Only.  Under contour label style under Layout>Border>Background Mask, this is set to True.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Add Or Remove Vertices On Contour Label Lines

Jun 17, 2013

As far as I know there is no way to add or remove vertices on contour label lines. Is this correct?

If so it's another one for my wish list.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Use Surface Contour Label Group Class

Nov 6, 2013

How to use the Surface Contour Label Group class in the .NET API.

My first guess was that I had to create an instance object of the class and name it, and then use a "Create" method (e.g., CreateMultipleAtInterval) from there, like this:

Dim labelgroup As SurfaceContourLabelGroup


However, this doesn't work, as Visual Studio told me "Warning: Access of shared member, constant member, enum member or nested type through an instance; qualifying expression will not be evaluated." 

I tried just saying: 


But that didn't seem to work either. How this class works and get it to add some contour labels to a drawing?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Label Contour (2D Plines) From Elevation

Nov 21, 2013

Of course with ACAD MAP (FDO Labels for example) or better with ACAD CIVIL : no problem !

But often I have to use a Standard AutoCAD ...

A lots of people have already asked for this routine :

But I search in this forums and some others and unfortunately I can't find any correct routine Full operational on ACAD 201X 32/64 bits

I have many 2D Plines with an Elevation : some Normal , some have been splined --> 1st problem

I would like to label them with :

- either a Block with ONE attribut : the elevation

- either a MText with a blank Mask behind

As you wish ...

Question : Size/Height of the Block or MText ?

Some 2D Plines are very long (2nd problem) so I would like a question like :

Label each Pline every xxxx Units ?

So on a Pline Contour of 2000 meters, I could have the elevation (Block or MText) every 50 meters ...

Of course I would like that the Block or Mtext will have to follow (rotation) the Pline (splined or not) where the label is inserted !

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Changing Profile Line Label Style Causes Label String To Revert To Default

Sep 6, 2012

C3D 2013. We have profile line labels, some of which get manually edited (for example, change the "<[Tangent grade(FP|P2|RN|AP|GC|UN|SD|OF)]>" to a static number such as 0.29%).

However, if you CTRL+Click and select one of these labels and change the style of that one label, then the manual edits are lost and the label reverts back to the default string.

Is there any way to turn this behavior off?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Labels 2

Sep 20, 2011

When generating a line of contour labels with Contour-Multiple, most of the labels are orientated properly but some of them on the line are rotated 180 degrees. Why aren't they ALL orientated in the same direction?

Also, sometimes, all of them will be orientated in the wrong direction such that they are, essentially, upside down. Is this a bug or is there a setting to adjust?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Labeling

Jul 10, 2012

I have recreated two surfaces for my design, existing and proposed.  I had used polylines for contours for in each surface.  I tried labeling the contours but it will not let me select the contour itself. 

I then tried to make the contours to 3d polylines and again added them to the surface and rebuilt.  I still am not allowed to label the contour since it doesn't let me select the polyline.  I am able to select the surface however.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Grid From DEM Contour

Nov 21, 2013

When I create a grid from our OSIP DEM files the contours come in as a block. I usually do 1' and 5' contours. I would like to break these so that when I select a 1' contour it will show up individually with elevation data still attached. If you select one now, it selects the entire grid. If you explode it, you lose the grid file. Is there a way to do this or will a just have to label the contours so I know where I am at?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Lines All One Entity?

Sep 15, 2012

I have a client that just started using C3D 2010.  When I sent him a topographic survey with contour lines (I am also using C3D 2010) he called me and asked if there was a way to select an individual contour line and have it display the elevation in the 'properties' dialog box.  I have not been able to find an answer for him.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Contour Extraction

Apr 27, 2011

I have a drawing set to UTM83 Zone 14 Meters and my drawing units is set to meters also. I created my surface from my point cloud. When i do the contour extract feature (surface object extract), the contours elevation is in the wrong datum or elevation? The surface contour is 620 but the same extracted contour says 188.97? Curious why this happens. It seems to me that it is back calculate elevation or datum to a different coodinate system.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Lines Not Showing

Jan 3, 2013

We recently received a LiDAR data in the form of an .asc file.  Brought it fine into Civil 3d. 

However, the level data is in mm so levels are showing as 98450 instead of 98.45.  The level ranges from 98450 to 166260.

When I create a surface and set the style to show contours, it only displays contour lines below 100,000.  Is this a limit in Civil 3D or am I missing some setting somewhere?  I'm using the UKIE template btw.
