AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Corridor / Intersection Surface / Modeling
Mar 13, 2012
I have 2 roads crossing, and I have created the 2 corridors, and an intersection object created. I split the 2 corridor regions and put the intersection in, and then closed back in the regions to the start of the intersection object (region). Now - how do I make that all one corridor object that reacts to either of my profiles, and is only one corridor surface? - the corridor surface ignores my region boundaries Or at least 3 objects that interact with each other properly. Image 1 highlights the start/end of the corridor regions, and image 2 shows how the surfaces look - why doesn't the corridor surface start and end where the regions do?
My corridor surface is not matching my corridor top links. see attachments. this is affecting my volumes!
The section-plan(surface red).png is showing the section editor and the plan view. the red highlighted line in section is the corridor surface and as you can see in plan view the surface is incorrect and wiggly.
The pdf is all my sections with the red linework being the corridor surface.
I have a site access road that extends from highway into site and then loops around and intersects with itself. Would like to keep this as one alignment in order to make Super Elev and master alignment easy to control across project team.
Issue is, we would like to use Intersection wizard at the intersection but cannot, as we ony have one alignment. We could model the intersection the old way, using kerb returns with design profiles, but as the design is still in early stages the intersection is likely to be frequently revised.
how we could utilise intersection wizard in this scenario?
I have 5 intersections in a drawing and i try to update all the intersections regions one after the other with "Update Regions and Rebuild Corridor". The problem is that sending up to date some intersections send other intersections (previously updated) out of date. So i cannot have all my intersections updated. The only way i found to correct this is to "Update regions automatically". but this way i cannot make changes to regions manually.
My corridor surface randomly bounces from top links to bottom links through the intersections even though I specified top links only and my corridor is modelling correctly.
Previously I just deleted the surface and recreated it with no errors but it doesn't seem to work now. This happens with both manually created intersections and ones created with the intersection tool.
I am trying to create a surface from a corridor. I have a sub-assembly attached, which I believe is working correctly. I managed to create the empty surface and when I try to add surface data nothing seems to happen. I keep changing the specified code to Base which is my finished gravel structure and hit the + but again nothing seems to happen.
Ultimately I am trying to determine a volume between my corridor and original topo.
I am having some issues with my corridor. It is for a 1.5 mile two lane section of highway. When I created the corridor, I used 15 assemblies. Now, when I try to create a corridor surface, I have issues. The file crashes when I try to load the surface.
I have one corridor with several baselines. I have asked it to generate a corridor surface but it has left out several baselines from the surface. I have ruled out assemblies. I am not sure what is going on. I am also unable to get feature lines from this portion of corridor as well. The corridor builds just fine and I can see what the daylight lines are etc. What's going on. Yes I have audited the drawing.
After you go thru and setup all of the links and feature lines that you want to use to create a corridor surface, is there any way to save that particular setup to be used on other corridors? That way you would not have to select all of them again and again, every time that you wanted to create, say a datum surface.
When I create a corridor surface I usually create a suface boundary automatically by daylight.Half the time this works fine, half the time it doesn't work at all. If I view the corridor in 3d view it looks fine.
I tried to create a shrinkwrap polyline to use as a boundary but when I picked the corridor in the shrinkwrap command
it locked up my computer. These are just simple corridors with no intersections. Why the automatic boundary only works intermitently? Is there a better/easier way to create the surface boundary?
I created a surface corridor, called STAGE 1, that I would like to target with a second corridor, STAGE 2. In a new file, I data referenced in STAGE 1 surface. It is showing up as an option for me to use as a target in my STAGE 2 corridor properties. Once I look at my sections it shows there is nothing targeted on that side.
I've created a corridor with kerbline widths targeting featurelines. I've created the corridor at 1m centres and have added a number of individual points to ensure it properly picks up all of the geometry of the target featurelines. However, the surface that has been created has numerous holes in it along one side and I can't understand why.
I have been banging my head against a wall for a while now trying to get this corridor surface to form properly. It wont seem to triangulate properly from where I have copied the intersection into the East-West corridor.
I have had this issue at least 3 times and twice on the same drawing. I create a surface from corridor and add several polylines and feature line as well as a boundary to the surface. Randomly it will lose all definition (breaklines and boundary) and i will have to "select similar" (and hope I get everything) and add all of my definition back.
It seems to only occur on large files and when my frequency is tight on curve and vertical curves.
I built a corridor, then corridor surface. Then I changed the corridor onto a different profile. I noticed that the contours at the end were going crazy: the new profile ended before the corridor and everything was going down to zero elevation. So I went to edit my corridor region. I enter the required station, and my contours disappear.
Observations so far:
If I set the end of the corridor region to 2+377.91 to 2+384.54 inclusive, the contours on the surface disappear. The triangles and boundary still display, and the surface gives a Z reading when I hover the mouse over it. If I set the region end to something above 2+384.54 or something below 2+377.91 the contours reappear.
My profile ends at 2+383.00, and I would like the corridor and the surface to end there too!
On my corridor I am using Link Slope to Surface, using a 3:1 slope. But it is giving me a 3:1 slope radial to the corridor - what I really need is a 3:1 slope between the contours themselves. On the inside of a tight curve, this makes a big difference. See the attached screenshot. Is there a workaround for this?
Is it possible to edit a sub-assembly in the Corridor Modeling Catalog (Imperial.NET) see attached image.
The company I work for has several users working off one network server. I would like to make a revision to one of the dimensions in the sub-assembly "UrbanCurbGutterGeneral" (the default gutter width is 16" I would like to make the default 18"). I'm assuming I need to change this in the Catalog so every users tool palette will be updated also.
I am looking for either a corridor style or surface style to display slopes while in plan view while working on a corridor. I know you can turn on slope arrows as a surface style, but I am actually looking for the grade to be displayed next to a slope arrow. Hopefully I am explaining it properly.
I just am looking for a better way to spot errors before putting surfaces into machine control without checking station by station in the section editor.
I have created a new assembly that uses a HMA dike rather than your typical curb but my surface always begins at the top of the HMA pavement rather than the top of the curb subassembly. See Picture. Where's the setting to fix this (is it a daylight setting) or it is a bigger problem in that I didn't create the subassembly or assembly correct to begin with?
