AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Change Profile Elevations Of Intersecting Roads

Dec 18, 2013

Is there a way for the program to automatically change profile elevations of intersecting roads.

Say for example i have two intersecting roads ROAD A and ROAD B.

On my ROAD A profile at station 0+300 i have a proposed road elevation of 9.5
On my ROAD B profile at station 0+000 (intersecting point) I have the same proposed road elevation of 9.5.

Now i change my ROAD A profile at station 0+300 to 10.3

Is there anyway to allow the program to automatically change my ROAD B profile elevations to 10.3 


and I have to use the Annotate > Add Labels > Profile View > .......................... labels,

Is there a way for those labels to link across the profiles such that , On my ROAD A profile at station 0+300 i put the label at the elevation of 9.5

On my ROAD B profile at station 0+000 (intersecting point) I have the same label at the elevation of 9.5

Now i change my ROAD A profile at station 0+300 to elevation of 10.3 then is there a way for it to automatically raise the ROAD B elevation label

So that I would know, without having to manually check through, that there is a discrepancy between those intersecting roads. So the real list of my query is whether I can link my alignments, profiles or annotation labels.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Profile Bandsets With More Than 2 Profile / Surface Elevations Shown

Mar 14, 2013

Im creating a Profile Bandset and would like to have multiple surface/profile elevations shown, ie: EG, FG, Back of Curb and Back of walk. While creating this bandset I see that the text component editor properties only has code for profile 1 elevation and profile 2 elevation in the properties area, which the code for this looks like below.

<[Profile1 Elevation(Uft|P2|RN|Sn|OF|AP)]>
<[Profile2 Elevation(Uft|P3|RN|AP|Sn|OF)]>

Ive tried to write my own code using the profile 2 as an example but it doesnt seem to work as a 3rd surface/profile and only seems to mimic the profile 2 elevation when placed in the band

My questions are as follows

1) does Civil 3d only allow 2 surface elevations in any band set? if it does allow more profiles/surface elevations what am i missing to create it? 

2) if Civil 3d does alow for multiple surfaces to be shown in the band set how do i get the text component editor to supply the extra profile elevation codes? or would i need to create from scratch

3) if i need to write the code from scratch does any listing of the codes and meanings of each code ie what does RN, Uft, Sn and so forth do and mean .

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 :: Hiding Profile Elevations In The Band

Mar 21, 2012

Attached is a drawing with my profile along with elevations in the band.

UPPER BAND - has proposed road elevations on the left and existing road elevations on the right.

LOWER BAND - has pipe elevations on the left and the SAME existing road elevations on the right.

I've been messing around in the profile view properties but cannot hide the duplicate elevations in one of the bands.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Bands - EG Elevations Blank

Jun 28, 2011

Civil 3D 2011: 

I have 7 roads in my drawing and all of the profile data bands except one are correct.  We first started with an overall profile with the EG created from a surface and the FG created by drawing in profile, then created multiple profile views.  The only thing wrong with the one road profile is the data band is not showing the EG elevations.  The strange thing is under Profile View Properties - Bands Tab, Profile 1 is set to EG and Profile 2 is set to FG, so it recognizes it is there and is also shown in the profile, however no elevations.  I have tried recreating the multi profile views.  Attached is a screen shot to give you a visual.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Existing Profile To Show FG Elevations

Feb 15, 2013

I'm currently working on a profile and I just don't understand why my profiles barely show any stations.  It doesn't even show the very first station.  I remember checking on a box that mentioned showing the 1st station and still nothing.  I've gone into the edit band style and turned on the labels at minor stations but it just turned on the FG/EG elevations.

I've added a picture showing what i'm talking about.  It only shows stations 31+00 and 32+00.  Not 30+00 or the 50' increments.  Also, while I'm on the subject.  How do I get something proposed into this existing profile to show FG Elevations.  Example if I just wanted to strike a straight line from 30+00 to the end where the elevation is a 91' & 86'.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Adding Profile Elevations To Alignment Labels

May 10, 2010

Is there a way in C3D to add elevation information from a profile to an alignment label? What I'm trying to do is add labels to an alignment in a plan view with elevation information from a profile design associated with that alignment at a particular station. For example, the note would read:

STA: 12+83.67
ELEV: 435.87

I can't figure out how to add any elevation data to the alignment note. I really don't want to have to create a section and a corridor surface, but that's the only way I can think of right now... and I'm not sure that would actually let me add a station and elevation in the same note in a plan view.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile View / Displaying Two Elevations Per Chainage

Apr 11, 2013

I've drawn a profile and would like to show the elevations of each surface selected in different bands. I've set up the bands easily enough though when they display on the section I've got two levels either side of the chainage line one with 0.01 precision and one with 0.001 precision - I only want to display one. I've tried fiddling with the Profile View Properties but don't seem to be getting very far..

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Edit Feature Line Elevations In Profile View

Sep 26, 2013

I have a finished grade surface and I have a feature line that is my waterline. I created an alignment and then recreated my feature line so they would be linked. I can then create a profile using my alignment and that shows my surface at that alignment. I can even add the waterline by using project objects to profile view. 

I need to be able to edit the feature line elevations in the profile view by creating and erasing PVIs so this will tie back to my geometry.

I m trying to create an intersection between two roads. See the attached jpeg.  When i open the corridor properties i receive an error message which i don't understand. It seems like civil 3d has problem with the order of the regions. Also the corridor sections intersects in the area that i have place a remark "problem". I m trying to correct it manual but when i rebuilt intersection then it overlaps my manual correction

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Model Two Parallel Roads With A Median In Between

Aug 23, 2012

i have a question for the gurus. how do i accomplish modeling two parallel roads with a median in between? in other words, say a northbound (NB) and a parallel southbound (SB) roadway, with a grass median in between them. the both roads have crown, and then eventually slope down towards the median, and at one point they meet.

I am curious to know if say for NB and SB, i have an assembly with the lanes, then shoulder, and then median area past the shoulder at x%, what subassembly should i use to accurately model the point where the NB and SB x%s meet?


I am not sure if i would be able to do it with only one baseline, as the roads may not always be parallel.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Self Intersecting Surfaces Helix Profile Sweep

Oct 8, 2012

I am working on Sweeping three helix profiles around a cylinder to create a screw thread. When I sweep the profile, Inventor gives me the error messages:

"The attempted operation would create a self-intersecting surfaces. Try with different inputs".


"The attempted operation did not produce meaningful intersection edges from the face-face intersection. Try with different inputs".

However, this is exactly what I need to create the helix profile I require and eventually increase the size of the Extrusion Sweep profile to 80mm. When I increase the sweep profile to 80mm I get the same error message about the self intersecting surfaces.

I am working with Autodesk Inventor Professional 2011, 64bit, 8gb RAM, Windows 7, Intel Core i7-2860QM.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Can Change The Order Of Profile Hatch

Jul 20, 2012

Is there a way to change the order of the Profile Hatch after it's been done as later solid hatches are displaying over the earlier ones?

The only way I've been able to do this is to delete all and then create in the correct order which is a bit of a PITA.

I don't want the intersection to have curb returns because I just want the access road to act as a driveway enterance (main road curb will run straight through and just get depressed at the access road enterance). However, I want the daylighting for the main corridor and the access road corridor to match up at this intersection and I'm not sure how to do this.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Display As Intersecting Line When Zooming In

Sep 16, 2011

Lets say you have a polyline snapped perpendicular to an acr and you start zooming in they tend to separate. In the past a simple regen would magically make them display as intersecting lines (no gap or overlap). Right now the regen isn't working and I can't figure out why or what changed. I tried changing the VIEWRES but that didn't seem to work. What else could it be? I don't even have to zoom in that far to notice the overlap.
