AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create A Profile From A Series Of Points

Dec 15, 2013

I have collected points across a 500m distance with easting, northing and height values. This line of points is measuring a stepped slope of a field.

I want, if possible, to create a profile (something that looks like a slice of the slope, so that the steps and profile of the slope is clear.

Can this be achieved? Will you be able to guide me through the process?

create a quick profile using the Points method?

When I am asked for the Profile Origin the cursor is like a standard Windows Arrow pointer and won't let me select a point for the origin.If I use a polyline for the quick profile all works as expected...

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Geometry Points Of Superimposed Profile To Alignment Label

Mar 1, 2013

I have an alignment label that I normally use to show the PVI's of a profile in the plan view.

This is a little unusual, but in a specific case I wanted to design my profile at one alignment, but show it at another.  I designed my swale profile in the pathway profile view and then superimposed the swale profile on the swale profile view.  I then went back to the swale alignment to add these labels.

It's a no-go AFAICT.  The only profile available for me to select for these labels is the original ground profile from the surface.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Created Profile From File But Cannot Create Profile Report

Jan 17, 2012

I am working C3D 2012.  I have a proposed alignment and profile design by another firm that I had to tranfer into C3D.    I had no problem getting the horizontal alignment to display from a text file.  I tried to do the same with the profile by using the 'create a text file and create the profile from file' command.  I got the POB, PI's, and POE to display.  I then defined the VC.  I wanted to verifiy that the profile was indeed accurate compared to what we were provided.  So I tried to execute a profile report PVI Station and Curve Report - I keep getting an error that "No FG profiles in dwg".

I know the Proposed profile is indeed set to proposed in the properties.  I have noticed that the icon next to the profile I create from the text file is different than the profiles created from scratch.

Is there a way to convert this profile to be recognized as a FG profile?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Dynamic EOP Profile Based On Cross Slope From Center Line Profile

Jun 28, 2012

The intersection wizard makes dynamic EOP profiles based off of the cross slope from the centerline.  Well the intersection tool doesn't always work with funky intersection layouts.  Is it possible to manually create a dynamic EOP profile based on the cross slope from the centerline profile?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Proposed Profile From Surface Profile

Mar 17, 2011

We have an engineer who is taking an existing surface and wants to show a proposed road 2" higher than existing.

I told him to simply adjust his assembly for his corridor to account for the 2" difference, but the County agency needs to see a profile.

My questions:

1) Is there a way to easily copy a profile made from a surface and "convert" it to a proposed profile?  If we copy and explode, it turns into hundreds (thousands?) of tiny pline segments and it would be a mess to convert all those to a profile 1 by 1.  If we make the corridor, and choose "profile from corridor", we do not have an option that could be used to represent the centerline. 

2) Other than loss of dynamic updating), would it make sense to adjust the assembly so the top surface would be accurate, then copy the profile, explode the copy to a block and simply shift that (as essentially basic linework)?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Northing And Easting (or Points) From Profile

Apr 4, 2013

I am working on a pipeline profile.  I have survey information (existing surface) and the horizontal alignment.  I have created an existing surface, a pipe alignment, and a surface profile/profile view.

In the profile view, it only showed the existing surface.  Now I have taken the design information of the pipeline and drawn in the vertical alignment on the profile view.

I need a surveyor to go out and shoot the top of pipe at high points, low points, and select points in between.

I have placed a pvi for each of these locations.

I need to know how to either spit out a table of these points that will include northings and eastings or create cogo points from the pvis so that i can create a table from the points that will include northings and eastings.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Projecting COGO Points To Profile - Style

May 17, 2012

I have projected Civil 3D COGO Points projected to a profile.  I simply want to display the Civil 3D Point Number for each point in the profile. 

In the Profile Projection Label Style, the only field in the text editor that displays this point number is the "Source Object Name.  This shows up as "CogoPoint 124" for point 124 (see attached).  How do I make this simply say the point number ONLY, i.e. "124"?

It would be nice to program the label style to display this field, yet delete the first 10 characters of "CogoPoint x", so it only says the point number, "x"

AutoCAD Map 3D :: How To Import Geotiffs And Series Of Points

Sep 26, 2011

New user of autocad map 3d. My company has tasked me with figuring out how to plot updates (new and modified cell towers) that come to us as lat/long coordinates on a aeronautical sectional map from the FAA's website.

The sectional maps come to us as GeoTiffs at 1:500,000 scale.  We could plot these out by hand but I am trying to make the process a lot faster by using Map3d. My questions are:

1- How do i import the geotiffs keeping the right scale, projection, etc.

2-How do i insert a series of points at the same time

3- Can i output the file as a tiff when im done?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Points For Further Processing

Aug 5, 2012

I have this attached file.

If I list one of the objects, it is defined as a block. I have repeatedly tried to explode this but to no avail.

My intention is to convert these AutoCAD "points" as points in Civil 3D to process them further. When I use Points>Convert AutoCAD points commands, it returns me a "invalid selection" message.

How do I explode these blocks and convert them to Civil 3D point objects?

I have 4 points (from "Points from file", I created Points #1, #2, #3 and #$ in the non-linear fashion).

1) I want to create 4 straight lines (connecting Pt#1-Pt#2, P#2-P#3, P#3-Pt#4, P#4-P#1) by using some Commands. What Commands in the Command Line should I use to create these 4 straight lines from these 4 points?

2) I want to create 1 parcel (connecting Pt#1-Pt#2-Pt#3-Pt#4-Pt#1) by using some Commands after "Parcel Creation Tools" => Draw Tangent-Tangent with No Curve is clicked.  What Commands should I use in the Command Line to specify these points to form a parcel?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Points By Slope Distance?

Oct 8, 2013

I have a line at a constant grade. I need to create points along this line. The information given is in slope distance and these vary at times.

I've tried the point create methods and they all seem to calculate points at a horizontal distance. How do you enter the slope distance?

I know I can go back to basic Acad methods of divide, changing ucs so horizontal works etc.

wondering if it can be done in the create points commands?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Blocks From COGO Points

Apr 8, 2012

This is a fantastic option, but I have a problem the whole drawing is rounded to two decimal places.

But when I execute create block from Cogo points he round heights on all points to three decimal places,where the third decimal is 0.

Example height is H =198.36 after H=198.360.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Batch Create Points Along Multiple Polylines

Oct 9, 2013

I have the need to put COGO points along the vertices of multiple 3D polylines in a DWG.  I know how to do this individually for each 3DPL via the "Points>Create - Miscellaneous > Polyline Vertices - Automatic" or "CREATEPTPLYLNCTRVERTAUTO" command. Need tip on how to do this in a batch format for all the selected 3D PLines in the drawing without having to select each individual 3DPL and having to hit return to enter a description for each individual vertex?  I can do without having to add a description and can leave each description blank or enter the same description for each.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Create New Vertex Points In Line And 3D Polyline

Nov 24, 2013

I want to create new vertex points in feature line  and 3dpol.

I have this:
if (obj.GetType() == typeof(Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.Polyline3d)) {
Polyline3d p3d = (Polyline3d)trans.GetObject(entRes.ObjectId, OpenMode.ForWrite);


In this code line:

oFtrLn.InsertFeaturePoint(punt, AeccLandFeatureLinePointType.aeccLandFeatureLinePointPI);
always catches the same Exception "the value is not within the expected range" .I have translated it because I get "El valor no está dentro del intervalo esperado". Perhaps is this: " Value does not fall within the expected range.".

I have tried it with different point3d values but always catches  Exception.

With pol3d I have similar problem.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create A Profile With Multiple Segments?

Jul 10, 2012

how (or if it is possible) to create a profile that contains mutliple segments. THe scenario I have is a proposed profile that ties to existing grade and then picks up again at existing grade some distance down the alignment.

The only way I can find to do this now is to create it all as one profile with no breaks and then go back and remove the profile segments in between the existing grad tie ins. Except when I remove a segment from my profile all of the labels beyond the first segment fo away.

In the past I have been creating multiple profiles but seeing as how long this surface alignment is and how many breaks in the proposed profile there are I would rather have just one proposed profile than several, especially when labeling existing/proposed elevations in the data band.

Here is an example before a segment is removed:

And here is an example after the segment was removed, the green labels are just polys and mtext not C3D entities

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Profile Layout From Feature Line

Oct 4, 2012

I want to create a profile layout by feature line. Is it possible?I have a pipe about 3 miles long, an alignment along the pipe, and a provie view showing the exisitng surface and pipe network. The pipe network was created from a feature line. I projected the feature line to the profile.

This is why I want to do this: I need to label the horizontal and vertical angle points of the pipe in plan view. I crated a style that shows the station and elevation. I want the elevation to reference the profile. But it only gives me the elevation of the surface and I need the top of pipe elevation.

I tried crate profile by layout and traced over the top of the pipe in profile but its 3 miles and it will take a long time. How to get what I want done faster?
