I have 4 corridors on same alignments (pics1). I created materials for each corridors (pic2). Then I created multiple section view for each corridor (pic3) ( for all corridors in section view table tab, i added corridors own materials). but cumulative material volume reset to zero at each new corridors beginning. In my project, corridors cumulative material volume value should continue from the previous corridor's value. Can i connect this volume tables or can i merge corridors ?
I'm working in Civil3D 2011. How to export the data from the surface volume tables to excel, or any other format outside of Civil3D?
Or maybe a better question: how to create a stage storage table automatically within Civil3D? The elevations table gives volumes per elevation class, but I'm trying to get cumulative volume stored below various elevations in my reservoir.
I am working on a corridor project where I have to make section views of the road. I created my sample lines by range of stations, and made all of my section views from there. Now I need to add volume tables for each section view.
I have 28 section views, and more to come when I do another set of sample lines for another road, and I don't feel like going through each section view individually to make volume tables for them.
Is there a way I can create total volume tables for all of my section views at the same time? It would save a lot of time!
I've read a few threads on this way back but cannot locate them. I have two surfaces and create a volume surface and it reported the volume as 493 cy. I then ran some sample lines at 25 foot interval and the total volume is reported as 964 cy.
I want to use it as my primary hydrologic and hydraulic modeler. It only makes sense. Well, I got the program to work and had things linked in and was able to route a storm through the network. But when I routed the storms, I had to model double the storage that i expected.
So I went back to the program I'm familiar with - Pondpack by Benltey - and designed the same system I routed in SSA in that program - and got the storage volume that I would expect for a site of this size - about 2 acres.
Is there possibly a setting that I'm missing that makes my outlet structures route slower or less than they should? Or is there some other reason that a system would give this kind of inflated need for storage?
I have an issue with using Bounded Volume or Adding a Boundary to Volume Surface things so bad... = incorrect volumes.. sometimes extremely incorrect.. I understand that the surface rectangle when a boundary is added but this could be horrible if not checked.
I am doing a little trial and error on possibly converting a drawing from .ctb to .stb. When we start a new drawing, it will be started using named plot styles so it shouldn't be an issue. But there are times when we receive a drawing from someone else and need to convert it.
The first thing I did was convert ctb to create a conversion .stb. Then I used convert pstyles to convert the drawing to named plot styles. For the plot style table I chose the conversion .stb I just created because it needs a color mapping table.
But I don't want to use the converted .stb table, I want to use my company plot style. So when I am in layer properties manager, Plot Style is still grayed out and I can't change it.
When I type in pstylemode, the default is 0 (read only). How do I change it so it's not read only and I can use my own plot style table?
I managed to input the values of "Point Number", "Easting", "Northing", "Point Elevation" for 8 points of my CDC project that has 4 Sampling Locations with 2 Depths in each location - see the attched file for details. I also manually added the SampleID to the "Name" of each point. Now I want to do the following 2 things via the "Annotate" menu:
1) Add Labels: Instead of Point Number, I want to use the SampleID to label each point. How can I do it?
2) Add Tables: I have some chemical results/data (in Excel .csv file) for each point. I want to attach these chemical results/data to each point. Should I create an external Database? How can I designate that external Database is for the 8 points of my CDC8pts.dwg? How can use the external Database to label the chemical results/data to each point?
I have read some tutorials:
(i) I rotated my CDC8pts.dwg several times - the current view is from the Bottom of Z-axis and the Point Numbers are in the reversed mode!! How can I set the Point Numbers in the normal mode? If the Point Numbers are replaced by the SampleID, how can I set the SampleID in the normal mode too?
(ii) I saw the "Point Groups"/All Points thing on my CDC8pts.dwg, they appeared in this dwg, after I did the inputting for the "Point Number", "Easting", "Northing", "Point Elevation". Should I do something on the "Point Group" before I do 1) and 2)?
I am doing a project and I have a lot of feature lines. I will need to be able to lable these feature lines with tags and then create tables for those. My question is, is there an easy format that I can do that will lable these lines in an order I set it up? Right now it just lables all over the place. The lines are counting the curves too. For example: L1 L2 L3 C1 L5 L6 C2 L8. I can make it work, would just think there is a better way. BTW I am using Civil 3D 2011.
tried to insert Excel tables into 2013 3D? It worked fine in 2012 but we just upgraded to 2013 and it no longer works. We get an error message that Excel is not supported. Is this a new feature or a bug? Also, our old drawings with the table already inserted does not plot normally. The table characters print at diffent sizes.
I just began messing around with linking excel and autocad (disappointed that you can't link to .xlsm but that will go on the wish list). I was wondering if there was already a post as to how to not lose your fields when you download from source. I have a table that has fields from my sheet set with drawing names etc...but everytime I click download from source it converts the field to plain text.
I've started connecting to Raster (.sid) Aerials thru mapwspace rather than inserting them thru the Planning and Analysis Workstation due to greater control with gray scale and resampling raster and such. I started noticing after I save, I can't select anything in my drawing. I was connected to a whole county Aerial .sid file, so i thought maybe if I only connect to individual tiles for my project area which consisted of 9 .sid files, the issue would go away. It didn't. I tried typing REA, purge, audit, then eventually I would crash.
Is there something wrong with FDO connections with .sid files thru mapwspace in C3D 2013???
I want to export data from AC3D to Excel; I've tried to do it with copying directly the tables I made, but it isn't text or number format.For example, I want to get the data from this table:
I know that with previous versions of autocad it could be done.In addition, I also want to get value table of the calculated cant of the "Cant Tabular Editor":How can I get a table of this data? I need it because I have a lot of curves and I want to do some verifications of the standars of my country.
I'm trying to construct a complex corridor of urban highway. To simplify corridor i've made assemblies for each side of the road (see picture). This solves problem of countless number of regions (and assemblies) that I'll need to set if assemblies are for whole profile.
The problem with seperate assemblies for each side of the road is that I cannot connect them using Median subassembly because Marked point and Median are in different assemblies.
When you paste a surface into another how does it connect the surfaces? Does it create a vertical wall where at the edge of the paste surface? Can you tell it to grade a certain slope to the surface you are pasting into?
I am using the map connect command to import a geotiff file to NAD83 coordinates. After import, the image displays correctly at the correct location, however my xref manager indicates that the image file location is in my local app folder within the C drive on my computer even though I specified the target base file on our network server. I also noticed the map connect function converts the files to a png file.
Because the image link resides on my computer others cannot view the image when they open the drawing. I don't fully understand how the map connect function works, do I need to use the map insert command if I want the image to be hard linked into the drawing?
I created one section with two assemblies. Main line assembly and offset (second line) assembly. Each assembly has its own alignment and profile.In strait its all ok, but in curve I get strange situation, that I try to solve. (look to the picture)
I add Mark points on Point 1 and 3. Then connect them using Link Slopes Between Points. Knowing that Point 2 is not static, but moving point I can't find any way to connect subassembly edge point to that Point 2.
So how can I connect subassembly to Point 2? Or maybe there is a smarter way to connect points 1 and 3. Slope from 1 to 2 should be 50:1 and from 2 to 3 should be 1.5:1
We use map info as our native GIS and can use these .TAB files with MAPIMPORT in C3D, but what I would really like to do is use MAPCONNECT like can be done for .SHP files, etc.. I've inquired with [URL].....and they have confirmed that their FME product doesn't support 2013.
I've got the Pipe Table style just as I need it except for one thing. I have all circular pipes and I would like the "size" column to display in inches rather than in feet. In the past I was able to multiply this number by 12 in the style composer but that doesn't seem to work anymore.
i'm jumping into 3d late in life...playing with volumes. i've created surfaces from aerial surveys and have saved the surfaces as separate files. i would now like to run volumes of the two as they represent the same quarry site from different years. it appears (?) i need to have both surfaces listed in prospector to run volumes. each separate file has its own surface listed. question...how do i get (import?) the second surface drawing into one of the files so i have both listed and can run volumes? i see where i can create a surface from importing a .tin file...but i don't see how to export the surface as a .tin file.
I have an existing survey surface, and I want to know how much cubic yard of materials to fill up from the bottom to elevation 876. See attached image for detail. Here is what i am going to do....
- i will create a surface of the fill area (from bottom cotours up to el 876) then do a volume surface bwt existing ground surface and the new fill area surface to get the volume of it? Is this a right way to do?
I'd like to do a grading in order to get a volume of earth work needed. It's a very easy proposed surface, but I've never done a grading before. I have a surface that is basically a football field that is graded from one end zone to the other with a slight uphill grade. At the end of the uphill grade is a berm the length of the endzone. That berm needs to be higher, and the uphill grade from endzone to the other endzone needs to be flatter. The dirt that comes out of the flattening will be pushed up on top of the berm on the opposite endzone to make the berm taller.
The new surface should start at existing grade on the low endzone, go on .10% up to the other goaline, then on a 2:1 up to 24 ft above the low endzone elevation. Think of a firing range where you shoot from the low endzone into a berm on the far endzone. The berm isn't tall enough, so they need to find dirt from the surface to put on top of the berm.
