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.
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)?
I have a profile showing proposed storm sewer, existing sanitary, rock surface, existing surface, and proposed profile. Today for some reason the proposed profile and labels, and the existing surface are not showing on the profile and I'm not sure what has changed or how to get them back.
Im creating a Profile Bandset and would like to have multiple surface/profile elevations shown, ie: EG, FG, Back of Curb and Back of walk. While creating this bandset I see that the text component editor properties only has code for profile 1 elevation and profile 2 elevation in the properties area, which the code for this looks like below.
Attached are survey points that created the surface of a road embankment portion that caved-in. The road is very near a reservoir shoreline.
1. How can a surface profile be produce? I/'ve use line to change it into an alignement and then create a proile , then a profile view. But the the surface profile is missing.
2.the points having higher elevation are the top edge( road level) of the cave-n . A few few shots were take before the shorline elevations.
3. What the best way to come up with the rock volume to fill the cave-in given this surveying points., Also the shoreline elevation will be lowered some more while work is being done since the fill is not allowed to fall in the reservoir.
We are using Civil 3d 2012 with Topcon Data Collectors. Topcon will not read a profile created by using "create surface profile" command but it will read a profile using "Profile Creation Tools" command. We are not sure if this a civil 3D, Topcon or a LandXML issue?
I have in front of me a survey of a small section of road (it's only 10m x10m or something). I want to be able to create a profile along the road section to demonstrate the surface level changes. I have created a network surface but Civ3D doesn't seem to able to use this type of surface to create a profile. Is there anything I can do, perhaps a way of transforming the network surface into another type of surface? Or am I going to have to manually create this profile in ACAD!
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?
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?
I want to create a profile/wall style or what ever you want to call it for a raised deck flooring for external decking. I am looking at the decking material only. Not concerned about the timber framing sub floor material.
I have alignments that go in and out of a surface boundary (this is because I have a surface that represents the bottom of pavement.) I want to show the surface profile with the gaps in the profile view (where there is no surface. However in the profile view the gaps are sometimes connected with a straight line instead of being blank.
How can I have a surface profile represent the bottom of pavement properly? (An alignment that is not fully withing the surface boundary.) I know I could add the profile multiple time with different start/end stations But, I don't want that, I want it to be dynamic, as the alignment will change.
I have the profile of my pressure network and storm crossings converted into ellipses but I can't get my surface to show on the profile to show the amount of cover I have between the existing ground and top of pipe.
Civil 3d 2014.... I have existing surface and a profile with 5 sample lines. All of them are good except 1 sample offset. I can do I quick profile and the profile looks like it should but if I generate an actual profile 90% of the profile is off. I have already tried reoding the alignment but it looks same on either one.
I have a surface profile which has 2 surfaces in it. The surfaces overlap, and where there is overlap I just want to show one surface. Right now it looks like I'm going to have to smack a new boundary on the one surface to clip it, but I thought there might be a way to limit the display range of one surface in the profile.
Right now, I've only figured out how to do this so both surfaces are limited to the same range, but I can't figure out how to do it if you want to just control the range displayed of one surface and show all of the other surface.
I Created a profile from existing surface and created a layer called "PRO-EXISTING" and set linetype to "HIDDEN". I also set my standard style to display linetype "BYLAYER" but my dashes are not even like polylines when plinegen is "ON"
i need to transition from a proposed to a future linetype part of the way down my profile. It's the same surface, just that @ station XX+XX.XX it becomes future. I need it a diff linetype to faded back, for example. Is there a way to do that? I'm thinking my only option is two create two surfaces, one propsed and one future. My situiation currently is that I already have one complete surface and would like to know if it's possible.
I have a drawing with surface profiles and the linetype generation is working on some and not the others. They're all dynamic and they're not dref'd in and like I said, a few with the same style look correct and a few are incorrect.
I have a drawing with multiple profiles. We originally had an existing and finished ground surface in the drawing, but decided to use a data shortcut to the surfaces as the design kept changing. We deleted the old surfaces from the drawing, and created the data references, using the same surface names for the new referenced surfaces.
The ground lines show up in the profile, but I can't get it to show the linetype I need for the EG surface (dashed). It doesn't act like a typical profile line - it now shows a lot of PVI points, and plinegen settings have no effect.
Every time I created surface profile, offset profile and sections it always at ZERO (0) LAYER. All label, grid, etc always at 0 layer. What is the correct way of doing it to assign at the proper layer?
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.
I'm working with a structure profile label style and it seems like the only way to anchor the position of the label is based on offsets from the structure itself... Any way to position the label based on the top of the profile view, so that I could make all of my labels horizontally aligned above the profile view?
I have a group of profiles in a drawing and I want to change how one of the profiles is displayed through the profile view style manager, but I do not want to change how all of the profiles look. Is there a way to change the way a single profile looks without changing all of them?
differences in elevations of points along Profile 2 (the proposed new road elevation) and Profile 1 (the existing elevation/surface) should be computed and shown right above the Profile 2 line. For example, if at a certain point PT 1 the elevation of the proposed road is 132.44 meters and the elevation of the existing surface is 132.45 meters, the difference is -0.01 meters and it should be shown exactly above the Profile 2 line (or a little bit above it) but not on it. The same should be done for every chosen point along the proposed profile.
So far, I have done this manually, by dragging the difference (already automatically computed and shown in one of the bands below the profiles) to the correct place for every single point. However, I don't know how to do this automatically.
where to change the text height and color for the lower band where the stations are. Also, how do I get the exist grade and proposed grade to show at the specified stations vertically like LDD used to do it.
Second, how do i mask the pipe in the manholes on the profile. Right now i can see the pipe inside the manhole. I clicked "enable masking" under the structure properties but no luck.
