AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Corridor Feature Lines Don't Update With Code Set Style
Nov 7, 2013
How do i get the feature lines in my corridor to change their style based on the code set style selected?Whats the point of defining featureline styles in the code set style if they don't change in the corridor? They only get used when you first create the corridor?
Is there something I am missing or is this the intended workflow?
Is there a way to be able to choose a desired feature line when extracting from a corridor? For example, when subgrade and finished grade are on top of each other, it seems subgrade is always coming as default for extraction. I'm not getting the option to select the desired point code as usual for some reason. The best way I found is by turning off the subgrade feature line from the corridor properties, which is a bit tedious.
I have a road corridor with feature lines connecting the road edges (cyan), ditchline (dark green), daylight_cut (yellow), daylight_fill (green) and daylight (white). At certain random locations along this corridor I am getting feature lines which span from one station to another, ignoring all of the corridor sections in between. The image below shows a daylight_fill line spanning over 60m, even though there is a daylight line through this region.
In this area a ditch line and a daylight_cut start at 4+110, skip over the next cut section at 4+120 and jump over a hundred meters to the next piece of ditch at 4+280..This corridor builds clean - no error messages reported.
Is this the only way to extract feature lines from a corridor i.e. selecting each one - it gets a bit tedious.
Is there any method to select a corridor and extract all the feature lines that are set to display?? I think third party software (Sincpac?) can do this but this is not an option for me and I am not well versed enough in .NET to write something to achieve this myself.
How do I make my corridor feature lines to change color? I want daylight cut to be red and daylight fill to be green.I've checked under "Toolspace/Settings/General/Multipurpose styles/Feature line styles/Corridor daylight line - Cut" but it doesn't work.
I created an assembly using BasicLaneTransition. When I apply it to my corridor I am not getting a feature line at the crown (center) of the road. I have used this subassembly on several other projects and have not had this issue. The only difference I can think of is that the other projects we started in C3D 2009 and this one is in 2012.
How do I get my feature line to show without adding a marked point?
I cant seem to target a corridor FL and keep it linked to the corridor. Is this the expected behavior? I would think you should be able to, no? For that matter I would think you should be able to pick the cooridor link directly, no?

We have recently started using a feature code library with our tremble survey gear and have been processing the linework and exporting the lines as a DWG and the points as a CSV and when iput them in the same DWG in Civil3D the point and Line Vertices are exactly on top of each other. Does any know how to fix this? I dont know if its to do with rounding, LSF, or projection to Cartesian?
I have daylight_cut at say station 100, then sampled every 20m, however it connect from station 100 all the way to 1000 for example. because there is no such code in between. why can't it create seperate features lines? the thing is sometimes it does it and sometimes it doesn't.
see the redline cutting across the corridor? shouldn't be there.
I was looking through the docs and all it says is that this eliminates tessellation. I understand that and that's what I'm looking to do. But the docs don't give any guidance on what these numbers are for.
I'm talking about the three options under the "Smoothing" group - "Horiz Deviation", "Weeding" & "Arc Inclusion" (I'm looking at the 2010 docs as that's all I could find at the moment).
I have grading style set up to create a cut/fill boundary and the same thing for my corridor. I made surfaces from my grading and corridor and no longer need them. I need to keep the cut/fill lines for my design. How can I extract these lines from these objects? I tried keeping the grading/corridor on one layer and lines I wish to use on another so I can turn pieces of the grading off. However, it will not print the cut/fill boundary without printing all the feature lines created from a grading.
I have a corridor that uses the Urban Sidewalk subassembly along the streets. During my rough design phase I set the outside boulevard widths to 2.00, and create a corridor surface using the Top Links as breaklines. I then do my lot grading, using that surface as a surface pasted into my FG surface. All of my side yard swales go up to the edge of the corridor's boulevard, with the elevation set 0.20 below the corridor surface. Once all of the design is done, I go back to the corridor and change the boulevard width to 0, thus forcing those side yard swales to now go up to the back of walk.this creates a small depression where we place small drain inlets.
Herein lies my problem, when I change the boulevard width from 2 to 0, the corridor surface never changes to reflect the 0' width. It's as if the break lines that I told the surface to use from the Top links are holding fast. The ONLY way I have been able to get the surface modeled correctly is to completely delete the corridor surface and create a new one and recreate the boundary, which I then need to re-paste and move to the top of the Edits in my FG surface. Just deleting and readding the Top Links from the corridor surface definition does not solve this.
the corridor-created breaklines do not get revised when the corridor changes, and cannot be edited/deleted by the user. Perhaps I am doing, or not doing, something that is forcing these breaklines to persist..
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.
I am wondering if it is possible to do a style update (or style update check) upon open of a drawing?
The example would be that I have stuff made from way back that the colors/dimension sytles ect dont match the current standard and upon opening a file where they are not current, it would either prompt to update immediatly OR update automatically with no prompting (preferred method).
I am doing a massive amount of updates from old files recently and to save myself 1 - 3 clicks per drawing would be wonderful.
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 a feature line, and a labels table created for it. The table has the following columns: Line or Curve #, Station, Segment Start X, Segment Start Y, Segment Start X, Bearing/Delta, Length, Radius, Grade Ahead.
what code I need for the table to display the station of the feature line at the start of the segment?
I also have an alignment with the same stationing over top of the feature line, but Im not sure how to code a reference text into the table either. I can create an end segment reference text for the plan view labels but even if I copy that code into the labels table it doesn't work.
Every time I go into Section Editor while working on my corridor I have to reset my Code Set Style Selection. Its not even like I am exiting and re entering the drawing, just the Section Editor. Is there a specific place C3D looks for that style when you enter the editor?
