I am trying desperately to create a corridor in C3D 2013.
I have the requisite Alignment, Profile and Assembly, yet when I create the corridor, either nothing appears, or it creates the corridor at incorrect elevations. I have the proper elevations in my alignment.
I am trying to create a surface from a corridor. I have a sub-assembly attached, which I believe is working correctly. I managed to create the empty surface and when I try to add surface data nothing seems to happen. I keep changing the specified code to Base which is my finished gravel structure and hit the + but again nothing seems to happen.
Ultimately I am trying to determine a volume between my corridor and original topo.
I have the centerline of a berm constructed using a 3D polyline. I want to use this centerline as the Alignment that I need from which to create a Corridor. When I try to create an Alignment from objects, I can only use a 2D polyline, not 3D. The berm has a slope to it and I need to have the assembly follow that slope as I create the Corridor. Do I need to create the Alignment in 2D and then edit the points for elevation?
I mad e the mistake of creating my corridors for a large site in the same drawing, and now I would like to pull them apart into individual drawing files for each corridor. I thought that last time I tried it, the drawings or data somehow got corrupted. I am running C3D 2009.
I am creating a corridor with custom assemblies on two alignments. the alignments are not parallel and graded independently.
Between the two assemblies I would like to fill from one assembly to the other with a dynamic link. I can't do this as a target to featureline etc as it is within the same corridor. We have created the link with a target but this was done by creating a non-dynamic featureline from the corridor and using that as the target. This is obviously not great as far as keeping the corridor dnamic is concerned.
So I would like to customise a subassembly to allow it to target a marked point on an adjacent assembly.how the SAC tools (Get marked poinit or set marked point etc.) can be used to do this. The help file is less than useful. I am still on 2012 and dont have access to the 2014 SAC yet but will do shortly.
Copy a corridor successfully? I'd like to try this just a little worried about the explosion of evil this may cause to my Civil 3D session.
Even all the properties of the corridor setup from one to another would be useful. I'm building one corridor and an 2nd one that matches everything except I need to replace my Assembly with one meant for stripping.
My corridor surface is not matching my corridor top links. see attachments. this is affecting my volumes!
The section-plan(surface red).png is showing the section editor and the plan view. the red highlighted line in section is the corridor surface and as you can see in plan view the surface is incorrect and wiggly.
The pdf is all my sections with the red linework being the corridor surface.
I have a very basic question about creating corridors. As you can see on the attachment, i created an assembly consisting of ditch and my own polyline subassembly and turned it into a corridor. The ditch part is drawn out correctly, but the other part (supposed to be a gravel road) has only sections in certain points.
I started playing around with 3d dwf's. I'd like to share my corridors in a 3d dwf viewer or something similar but when it opens in design review, everything is skewed/ jagged/garbled. The other problem is that it exports everything (assemblies, alignments, sections etc.) so it make viewing navigation difficult in the viewer for people that aren't CAD savvy to begin with. It would be ideal if you could select what you want to export similar to exporting a wmf file.
How do others share 3d models with non-cad people?
We are trying to edit a small portion of an existing corridor by adding a generic daylighting subassembly. The add subassembly tool in the Corridor Section editor works, but we get an error because the new sub doesn't have a target surface specified. how to add a target for a sub that is added after the corridor was created?

When creating an alignment from corridor feature (ditch invert level), the created alignment is not following the selected line (see image bellow). The alignment seams to be created from the first point of the feature line to the last point and ignores all the other points. The vertical alignment created at the same time seams to be correct.
I had a grading plan all set, with a corridor involved. Then, I received a new survey that I didn't know was coming. I need to move all of my elements to different coordinates. I can move everything except the corridor.
I only get 2 choices when selecting corridor feature line to create profile - ETW_base, and ETW_sub. My Subassembly has 2 pavement sections, a base and subbase section. I need the top of pavement profile.
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.
I need to design a project but ı cant..ı have two profiles in use for one alignment..ı want to use left profile for left side, use right profile for right side.and ı want to draw cross section only one..how can ı design like this project..
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?
Why is my corridor adding a hinge? [Atleast I think that is the problem]
I am trying to create a berm that is 8' wide. For my assembly I used 4' wide basiclanes and daylightgeneral (with 3:1 slope in all parameters) on left and right side.
In the top image I have circled two of the areas in which the hinge line is shown. And in the bottom right the cross section of one side of the berm is shown. As you can see on the inside (left) there is two feet sloped at approximately -1% before it daylights to the surface at 3:1
I want use my corridor where I need it and not use one in certain areas. For a proposed dike. Some places doesn't need to be replace. So I need a way to use my section on the alignment. where I can find that option?
I am having some issues with my corridor. It is for a 1.5 mile two lane section of highway. When I created the corridor, I used 15 assemblies. Now, when I try to create a corridor surface, I have issues. The file crashes when I try to load the surface.
My alignment runs on the road center line and ends at the center of the cal-de-sac bubble. My corridor runs to the middle of the cal-de-sac. I need to shorten the corridor to end where the constant road width ends and the bulb of the cal-de-sac begins. I can shorten the Corridor on the alignment or do I need to create a new alignment to the desired length?
Where can I find the corridor display tab/settings?
Some things, like surfaces and such, are easy to find, but for the life of me I cannot find the location for settings corridor layer & linetype & color settings (display tab).
One of my last holdouts from LD is to manually draw my curb & gutter linework and ignore the lines the corridor would create for me. I basically used the corridor lines as verification, not their full use. I decided to break from this habit, then spun my wheels trying to locate where these settings might be.
