AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Created An Alignment With Superelevation Wizard
Mar 20, 2013
I am currently trying to design a roadway with a reverse curve in it. I am having trouble getting my corridor to model my assembly correctly as it is showing the roadway as the generic assembly and is not adding the superelevation that is shown on my alignment. I have done the following:
1) created an alignment with superelevation wizard - superelevation diagram shows up correctly
2) Created a profile for this alignment
2) created an assembly (Road layer is LaneSuperelevationAOR) in which the right lane is set to use SE on the right outside lane and the left lane is set to use SE on the left outside lane
3) Created a corridor with the assembly and set the width targets to the offset alignments (I.e. the lines that are the edge of pavement)
The corridor does not show the superelevation values based off of the alignments superelevation that it has calculated. I did get the supers to show when i tied the Future EOP to the existing surface, however i do not want it to tie in, I want it to just show the values that were calculated.
Is there a way to get this to show without referencing an additional profile? Also, on my first curve i want to keep the right side at a -2% slope and raise the left side to 2% slope (RC). Is there a way to limit the calcuations to only use a reverse curve?
I have an alignment I need to edit that has a reverse curve. The first curve was made with the "Floating Curve (from entity, radius, through point)" and the second with "Free Curve Fillet (between two entities, radius)"
When I delete one or both curves i lose all the superelevation data beyond the editing location due to the temporary spit in the alignment. The superelevation data is all manual. This is a trail and the super is based on drainage not curves.
how to edit the alignment with a temporary split and not lose the superelevation data? I have not found a way yet to remove the reverse curves and not have a temporary gap.
Is there a way of adding superelvation data such as full superelevation cross slope to an alignment curve label in plan view?
In my case we add a label for each horizontal curve with critical curve data such as PI Station, Delta, Degree of Curve, etc... but I can't seem to find a way of adding any superelvation information to the plan view as a label. Ideally I would like to be able to add the maximum cross slope value and superelevation critical stations to the label.
There is a way of adding the superelevation critical stations a labels to the alignment similar to how PC's or PT's are labeled, but it does not give the cross slope value.
Using Civil 3d2012, Is it possible to change the alignment label style set after the alignment has been created? For example, for an alignment that was created with alignment label set X - change the label set to alignment label set Y? It seems like this should be pretty easy, I must be missing something obvious.
I created a new alignment based on a survey topo. The first half of the alignment shows the sections/chainages but the second half does not. My alignment should be line, curve, line, line, curve, line, line, curve, line but when I check the design editor, it only shows the 5 elements. When I check the sub entity it appears some are not assigned numbers which have generated a warning symbol.
How can I have an offset alignment that I created be the current label so when I start to pick offset of my current alignment I do not want to have to go back and change the label style to my own label style.
I have a problem with my superelevation. everything is calculated accordingly but when i build my surface from corridor after i have calculated superelevation it does not show the results. Even my cross sections view still show a normal assembly cross section. It happaned on both C3d2011 and ad C3d3013.
This is my aplicattion in Civil 3D 2014. URL....It´s a tool palette that checks the design criteria (for alignments,superelevations and profiles) according to Spanish rules.My program changes the name of each superelevation curve,for example:
---> With superelevation tool own of Civil 3D (Cuve.1,Curve.2,Curve.3)
---> With my program: (VisorNET Curva.1,VisorNET Cuva.2,.....)
If I calcule again Superelevations using Superelevation button (Calculate/Edit superelevation)of Civil 3D, Civil 3D doesn´t change the Superelevation Curve Names and appears again (VisorNET Curva.1,VisorNET Curva.2,...).Superelevation CurveName property doesn´t exist in settings:
URL....and there isn't a name template. I would like to have this property (read and write----get and set) of settings.Then, I could re-write the default Superelevation CurveName format. (name template)
I am working with SAC , and cant understand how that superelevation works, how to make my models work in CIvil 3d in superelevations... how to build it properly in SAC. I would rly love to get .pkt file with working model as example , or at least get some usefull tip.
In my corridor I have used superelevation. In a horizontal curve which has a cross slope of 4.5%, I have an intersection. To allow for a smoother ride through a few lanes in the intersection I want to change the cross slope from 4.5% to 1%. I was planning on doing this by using a Outside Lane Elevation Method of a Profile. However, it appears that my super has precedence over my profile. Is there are way to make this work?
I'm attempting to use the Superelevation tool on an interchange. I have 4, 1-lane ramps that I need to apply superelevation to. The three issues I have (so far) are:
In the Calculate Superelvation Wizard...
1. In Roadway Type, I don't know what to choose, I'm leading toward Undivided Crowned (center Baseline ) because my assembly (as of right now) is set up as an undivided crowned roadway (with the crown on the west travel lane edge). Which Roadway Type I should choose (for a 1-lane Ramp with different shoulder widths?)
2. Moving on to the the Lanes category doesn't matters. I uncheck symmetric Roadway, hoping I can choose "0" for the number of lanes on the Left, or at least put the lane width down to "0" but can't do either. I uncheck the Symmetric Roadway and it still makes everything symmetric (it acts as though it is still checked?) I only want to show a single 15' lane. (I even tried to use undivided planar, and put both lanes at 7.5'each, but then I still have shoulder issues...)
3. Move to the Shoulder Control. Why doesn't it give me the option to do different shoulder widths? On ramps it is very common (at least in Wisconsin) to have an 8ft shoulder on the right and a 4ft shoulder on the left. How can I type in 2 different shoulder widths.
In attached file the normal cross slope of secondary road(AB) is 2% Right to left (Right higher). and for primary road cross slope is 2% Left to Right (Left higher). I produced this junction using intersection wizard and cross slope of secondary road only starts changing from start of curb return to match the long slope of primary road. Is this possible to increase this transition lentgh on secondary road to create smooth contours.
I using a data reference/shortcut to properly label an alignment in paperspace. However when I reference the alignment in and apply the labels the aren't the same as the original alignment that I am referencing. Is there a setting where I am supposed to apply a new beginning station.
Also it seems as though the stationing(distance) isn't even matching up 1:1 with the original drawing. For example in the original base drawing my alignment starts at 10+00 with the next PI at 14+76.98, but the stationing on the reference alignment starts at 0+83.33 with the very same PI being labeled as 1+23.08. So the very same distance is 476.98' in the real design and the drawing it's being referenced in, but the stationing of the referenced alignment shows it as 39.75 Units.
I've attached a screen of the beginning of the alignment.

I’m wondering if there is a way to launch alignment grid view/alignment entities (attached) without the need to first launching “alignment”? This dialogue box is quite essential in editing the values of radius, degree of curvature and deflection angle for the selected curve.
I would like to know how it would be possible to manipulate the Intersection Wizard so that I can obtain the required shape as drawn by the architect. In essence create a "round about" shape. see the attached image for furhter detail.
I'm having some trouble with .fbk files disappearing after I import them. I'm sure I am missing a setting somewhere but I don't know where. I have a (slightly clunky) workaround on setting things up correctly.
We went straight from LDD 08 to Civil 3d 13 so it is a bit of a learning curve.
I am trying to use Civil 3d 2013 with Trimble Link. My procedure is to download the file with trimble link and then follow the wizard from there. My .fbk imports fine, but if I need to edit anything I find that it is missing from the folder that I just imported it from.
If I copy and rename the .fbk prior to importing it I can import and edit the re-named file no problem, it just seems to be the initial import done by the wizard that deletes the file.
