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 :: Broken Contour Lines

May 9, 2012

Is there a way to quckly join contour lines that have been broken where the contour elevation is?

example, if this were a contour line     ---------501---------    

I'd want to delete the contour elevation and join the line to make a continuous contour line.....

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Disappearing Contour Lines

Feb 23, 2013

I’m having some issues with my CAD. Every now and then, my contour lines disappear and I can’t get them to reappear. My surface border and triangles will appear but not the contours. Sometimes if I change surface styles they will appear but other times they are gone forever.

Troubleshooting: Regen AllAuditPurgeLayers on/offLayers frozen/thawedPromoting (if the surface is a data short cut)Changing the surface styleChanging the contour interval

None of this has worked…

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Lines Display

Sep 19, 2012

I am having problems viewing my contour lines after I create a surface. I create the surface using points.  The contour lines will show up when I create the surface. After I close the program or the drawing, I am not able to see the contour lines again. The contour lines are on in the surface style.  How can I see the contour lines without creating the surface again?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: TIN Surface Won't Create Contour Lines?

Jul 8, 2013

I just upgraded to Civil3D 2014 and Windows 8. When I create a TIN surface using a DEM file no contour lines are displayed. Points are processed and triangles are created and can be displayed but no contour lines. Contour line layers are set to display in the style file.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Surface From Contour Lines

Feb 24, 2012

I have drawing giving to us for a senior design project. I'm trying to create a surface to so that I can analyze cut/fill. Not sure if what i'm doing is right or wrong, I've never used civil 3d. But i'm getting break-line errors whenever i'm trying to create the surface from the contour lines. 

Heres a link i took of what i'm doing on youtube [URL]........

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Make Surface From Contour Lines

Oct 24, 2013

I have this contour lines from dwg file (see attached) and I am trying to make a surface out of it. Initially i thought it is already a surface for C3D but i cant seem to follow tutorials. While browsing for solutions from the Internet, it seems it is not even a contour file that can be added in C3D. what is this file and how i can convert it into a surface in C3D?

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 :: Adjust Elevation Not Location For Contour Poly Lines

Feb 1, 2013

I was given a file from a competetor (this is evil)

The file has  coordinates in feet (x, y) but elevations (Z) in meters.

I need the contours intact (cant explode block and scale) to create a surface from.

The other part is this is a big file so anything by hand would be rediculous.

I need the final file where the x,y has stayed the same but the z has been adjusted to the correct foot elevation (scaled)

AutoCad :: Create Contour Lines

Oct 19, 2010

So I have finally been able to create a surface that I like and slice some 3D solids using this surface. But now I would like to draw some contour lines of that surface. I have seen some videos about creating contour lines (such as this one: URL.... ). But in this video they import the surface using the 'connect to data' button in the toolspace area. Is it possible to insert a surface from your drawing into the toolspace area and then draw the contour lines? I managed to insert the layer containing the surface using Data --> Add drawing data --> Drawing layer... but I cannot change style or create contour lines.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Missing Contour Lines

Jan 18, 2013

I have Acad2013 installed on my computer. When I received a Acad Civil 3D dwg I could open it and see all (contour lines, etc.). Later I installed an object enabler Civil 3D (Civil3D_2013OE_64Bit.exe) cause Acad2013/Acad Civil 3D issues onto my computer and now when I open the same Civil dwg in Acad2013 I am missing the contour lines.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Adding Contour Lines To A Map?

Oct 9, 2012

how I would go about adding contour lines to a map? I entered roughly 200 points (x, y, and z values) into an x-y plane on AutoCAD and figured that if I were to add contour lines (1' elevation difference), it would rely on the z axis. In short: how do I add contour lines if the points are all plotted?

AutoCad :: How To Trim Unwanted Contour Lines

Jan 29, 2012

I have a drawing from a surveyor showing contours which have been formed by 2D polylines. I have tried to trim out a portion of the contours, which i don't need, using extrim command but it doesn't trim any of the contour lines. Even with just the trim command i cannot trim them. i have tied exploding but still not managed to trim. How to trim these unwanted contour lines ?

AutoCAD 2010 :: How To Create Contour Lines On 2011

Aug 23, 2013

I have csv file of co ordinates (x,y,z) I surveyed, I have to produce progress drawings showing stockpiles, boundary etc. , which I can do easily enough by uploading the co ordinates.  I would like to include contour lines in the drawing but how to go about it.  I have spent a while searching online & I'm even more confused, most discussions refer to TINs and triangulation but not sure how to go about it.  I have a survey of the site survey csv file prior to any works carried out & that is what i would like to base my contour lines on. The site is relatively flat, about 4 acres in size, relatively even rectangle shape with fall of 200mm from north to south & fall of 2.5m from east to west.

AutoCad 3D :: How To Create Surface / Solid From Contour Lines

Apr 2, 2012

I've been trying to lay a mesh on top of some contour lines. I've also tried the loft command, but with little success.

I've tried several terrain plugins, but they all seem to malfunction because I have overlapping contours. Here is the dwg, what I'm trying to make.

AutoCad 3D :: How To Create Mesh Or Surface From Contour Lines

Jun 25, 2011

I'd like to be able to create a surface or mesh from contour lines to give a better 3D representation of terrain than just contour lines. "Drape" seems to be the tool ACA, but I'm wondering if AutoCAD can do something similar. LOFT sorta works, but even then, I have to do it in sections, and I'm not really looking for a solid.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Import Of Shape File Contour Lines To Their Elevation

May 29, 2013

I want to import a shapefile into acadmap; this file has contourlines, and in the attribute tables there also is the Attribute for the elevation of the repective line, noted as integer number

after import all lines are on elevation 0

how can I filter all those with same elevation attribute, change them to an AutoCAd object (polyline) and have them moved up to the respective elevation which can be read out from the attribute table?

Revit :: Controlling Contour Lines

Feb 28, 2013

I have a small residential project with corner lot sloping up diagonally from the intersection. The client wants to raise 'usable' surface of the site by introducing terracing - 3 retaining walls 3' high and 3' apart.

All is interrupted by a driveway and series of steps leading to the main level. I'm trying to modify existing surface, but the topo seems to have 'life of it's own' . I've tried to Split some surfaces to make life easier. That worked to some extent. How to make the topography cooperate? Is there a way to 'turn off' triangulation? ( not the visibility ) . I'm certain the contours I'm creating can be built, but Revit is 'changing' them to something else. Some points that I place are simply ignored.
