I have a corridor with 2 intersections. It is more or less like a main road with an off-ramp and an on-ramp, both on the same side, with a big triangle shape island in between them. It involves an existing road widening and a connection with another existing road. Since it is a real scenario, the intersections aren't perfect 90 degrees nor the offsets are constant.
Create Western intersection and change offset and curb return targets to design aligments.Create Eastern intersection and change offset and curb return targets to design alignments.Model the corridor as per design requirements.Due to design constraints, I ended up removing both intersections. I didn't delete all the offset and curb return alignments although they're not targeted on any region. Deleting this alignments seems to make C3D crash. the actual intersection definition hasn't been removed, as I read on other threads. I kept on getting a couple of error messages on Panorama Event Viewer every time I rebuild the corridor.
So, the problem comes when I try to output the cross sections from this nice looking corridor. They all look fine until they reach the intersection area. From the intersection onwards, the corridor is not displayed on any cross section. Even way passed the western intersection.
Why the corridor doesn't display on the cross sections passed the deleted intersections?I have a bad feeling that removing the intersection wasn't a good idea in the first place but it's too late now.
I have a drawing with some cross sections of road showing the Proposed road surface and Existing ground surface. Now we have received a new ground surface and we have to supersede the old ground surfae with the new one. is there any way to swap the surface in the existing cross sections?
I have a corridor with two baselines, one on the south side of the road, and one on the north side. The south baseline appears correctly in the section view. It is an asphalt bike trail with a ditch to the left side. The north baseline was not appearing at all. The assembly was just a ditch with nothing else. I changed the north baseline to use the same assembly as the south to troubleshoot. The pavement comes in, but the ditch still does not appear.
I can see the ditch feature lines on my corridor (see attached), but they are not appearing in the section view.
I have an existing surface. I created an alignment and have managed to make "multiple cross" section out of the surface without making corridor and its fine. Now, the problem is I cannot finding any option to make report out of these sections. I need those report very soon..I have even attached th dwg file which contains all the data.
We have an urban divided highway resurface and widen project. We have an eastboiund and westbound corridor we would like to get to display on our single set of cross sections
We originally set up our corridor to do the widening and ditches portion and then went on to do the work to set up the model to do the resurfacing. When we did the sections for the ditches only they displayed fine. Now that we have the resurfacing incorporated into it the ditches no longer display.
we have reviewed the targets of our assemblies, we have reconstructed the cross sections, to no avai. The software is not doing us any good right now. Need to get smarter
I have added intermediate sample lines in my corridor. These sections appear in the section editor and I can make changes to the data. The changes show correctly in the section editor and section view, however, when I plot the cross sections some of these added stations do not show the overrides. They are showing the original assembly group parameters. How do I get all the cross sections to reflect the edited data from the section editor?
I am working on a project for a park in which they are looking for a new access road and a parking lot. I created the road and sections for it, now im looking to get material cut/fill from the sections. I am having a tough time getting them to work. The only thing I can get to work is if i created a volume surface comparing my eg to my fg surface. That will give me a cut and fill material amount for my new road
What i am trying to get is the volume report for each sections, so i can get the cut/fill for each section. I have followed the tutorials and tried everything, but nothing seems to work. I created a surface from my corridor, and for some reason when i go to edit my materials, i cant add my proposed surface from my corridor to make the comparison from, and i think thats my problem. Everytime i go to create my volume report, i get all 0's.
I am trying to set up portrait cross sections. I can get my views to create a grid and such that look correct, however when putting them on sheets, it rotate the border, but also the modelspace. Are there certain settings in the sheet creation or the dwt file I need to review to do portrait sections?

I have created a drawing called xsec. I xrefed the corridor drawing into it and data shortcut the alignments in as well. I created sample lines and cut my cross sections in the drawing. Everything at this point looks fine.
The problem happens when I create a new drawing and xref the xsec into it. In this new drawing only the right side of my cross sections is showing up. I want to use this drawing for my sheet set rather than have a bunch of tabs in the xsec drawing.
I have sevreal corridors with various spurs. The contractor wants the cut/fill volume in sections along the corridors, not one big cut/fill calc. Is there a way to do this in C3D? I have got the volume table with the chainages on, but he does not want a cumulitive figure for the whole corridor.
We have created sections from our corridor. We see FG and EG, we can use bands for EG from surface. How do we get the FG band to show the elevations for FG? The only option we have is the EG surface. We have tried to create a surface form the corridor in the corridor properties but that surface still doesn't show up in the surface list in the bands. I would have thought this info would be dynamic and come directly from the corridor would it not?
I sampled my sections at 25 feet intervals, created my section view group and them plotted my cross section sheets. All look fine.My problem is that I need to include Station 21+17.40 and some other similar stations (in-between the 25 feet intervals) into my cross section sheets without deleting the existing Sample Line Group and Section View Group. Is there a way I can sample my desired additional sections and add them to the existing Sample Line Group and Section View Group and re-plotted my cross sections?
We want to show two surfaces, an existing ground and a proposed ground, on a cross section. When the proposed ground meets up with existing ground, it would be nice for the line to end. With just existing ground continuing on. The surface is data referenced, and I would like to not break either of them. I thought adding a surface mask would cause the proposed surface to stop at the mask, but that doesn't appear to be the case.
I have everything needed for plotting of cross sections. Alignment, profile, assembly.
The "Corridor Section Editor" shows everything as it should be. Existing Ground, Final Grade, Labeling, etc. When "Create Multiple Views" or "Create Section View" only existing Ground shows. All layers are on.
civil3d 2012. I'm trying to find out how to create cross sections from existing ones that i have in autocad file. I allready have read for the way with offsets points, but is there a way to make full cross sections from the allready drawned?Is it possible to convert the existing lines?
I am working on a project which has numerous existing conduits laid out on the site. The location of the services has be picked up by a surveyor on the surface at numerous location and provided as a 2D polyline. The lines are quite long with a large number of nodes.
I wanted to represent the conduits as say a 100mm pipe and locate it about 0.6m below the surface to get an idea of how it impacts my works.
I tried converting it to a network fails as there is >70 nodes. I really only need to see the conduit on the cross section as I will definately avoid it.
Is there a way to display 3D polylines in cross sections?
I have multiple surfaces representing topsoil, clay and types of bedrock, and an alignment set with sample lines and sections set. Trying to use the Compute Materials using material lists and the corresponding shape style to hatch between each surface something is going wrong. With all the display settings (Plan,Section,Profile,etc) set to by layer and on a created layer(not on 0). The shape area fill is set to solid. It will not display the hatch.
I am having an issue with the pipe networks drawing the pipes incorrectly in the cross sections. Whenever there is a crossing pipe running parallel with a structure, the pipe shows as a large ellipse instead of showing the pipe walls.
Some of the pipes are not running exactly parallel with the sample line, but they are pretty close. I know in the profile view you can change a setting to make a pipe show as a pipe end or as a regular pipe. Is there a setting for the cross sections as well? If not how do I get the pipes to show correctly?
I am evaluating volumes of concrete removed from a surface and the volumes of concrete poured to replace the demolished concrete.I have created surfaces for each stage of the process in individual drawings.
I have created a drawing for the section views and successfully created cross-sections showing all the surfaces.When I compute materials, determining cut material between 2 of the surfaces, the end area is not always determined at every station.
I have previously noticed end area "shapes" with breaks in them. Each time, this was because there was a void in the surface triangulation.Is there any way that I can interrogate a surface to check whether the triangulation is incomplete, with voids in it?
I posted last week and included the attached screen print showing incomplete triangulation which I only noticed by turning on the "Shades of Gray" visual style.There must be some way to check surfaces without having to use the memory gobbling visual style.
I want to create cross sections in a blank drawing via a Data shortcut Project.
My intent is to keep my file size to a minimum. I can include surface, alignment and profile per data shortcut but not my corridor. My corridor is 3000 feet long and when I do cross sections in the same drawing, it runs real slow.
