AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Changing Profile Line Label Style Causes Label String To Revert To Default

Sep 6, 2012

C3D 2013. We have profile line labels, some of which get manually edited (for example, change the "<[Tangent grade(FP|P2|RN|AP|GC|UN|SD|OF)]>" to a static number such as 0.29%).

However, if you CTRL+Click and select one of these labels and change the style of that one label, then the manual edits are lost and the label reverts back to the default string.

Is there any way to turn this behavior off?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Editing Profile Style Of Single Profile Instead All Of Profiles?

Mar 5, 2012

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?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Change Default Label Style To Child Style

Jan 2, 2013

I am trying to change the default label styles for AddSegmentLabel under general styles using .NET...

Dim X As Autodesk.Civil.Settings.SettingsCmdAddSegmentLabel = CD.Settings.GetSettings(Of Autodesk.Civil.Settings.SettingsCmdAddSegmentLabel)()

X.Styles.LineLabel.Value = strChildStyleName ... says name does not exist


X.Styles.LineLabelStyleId.Value = oidChildStyle ... "The type of objectId is wrong"

If I manually change it to a child style and then check the values, they are the same as what I'm trying to set them to. If you use a "parent" style then these both work. Am I doing something wrong or this another limitation?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Profile Bandsets With More Than 2 Profile / Surface Elevations Shown

Mar 14, 2013

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.

<[Profile1 Elevation(Uft|P2|RN|Sn|OF|AP)]>
<[Profile2 Elevation(Uft|P3|RN|AP|Sn|OF)]>

Ive tried to write my own code using the profile 2 as an example but it doesnt seem to work as a 3rd surface/profile and only seems to mimic the profile 2 elevation when placed in the band

My questions are as follows

1) does Civil 3d only allow 2 surface elevations in any band set? if it does allow more profiles/surface elevations what am i missing to create it? 

2) if Civil 3d does alow for multiple surfaces to be shown in the band set how do i get the text component editor to supply the extra profile elevation codes? or would i need to create from scratch

3) if i need to write the code from scratch does any listing of the codes and meanings of each code ie what does RN, Uft, Sn and so forth do and mean .

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Proposed Profile And Existing Surface Not Showing In Profile

Jun 17, 2013

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.

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 :: Surface Profile Not Shown In Profile View

Nov 28, 2012

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Style Not Transferring Through XREF

Sep 10, 2013

It is a question about xrefing Civil 3D profile style.

The Civil 3D file has a profile view showing 4 profiles, and 4 different profile styles are used for the purpose of comparison. When xrefing this file, the profiles are not shown the way they are defined in the profile style. It seems their appearances are controlled by layer properties. I just wonder if it is possible to transfer profile style through XREF?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Band Style Setting?

Aug 26, 2013

In the Band Style_A pdf you can see the location of my elevation labels, they are below the bottom line of my profile view grid. In the Band Style_B pdf the labels are showing up in the proper location (above the bottom line of the profile view grid). To move the labels to the proper location I changed the "Gap" setting from 12.5 to -24. Is there a way to change this setting in my "style" rather than have to go make this change to the style every time I use it in a profile?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Export Surface STYLE To Different Drawing

Feb 10, 2012

I customized a surface style to show relative elevations, with lighter tones representing higher elevations, and darker tones representing lower elevations.  With a single glance, I know the high and low spots in my project area.

C3d provides several default surface elevation styles.  None of them comes close to providing the instant, data-at-a-glance information that my customized style does, which I use to design stormwater systems.  Again, it's really useful to see, with one look, where the high and low spots are in my project area.

I can't figure out how to export, transfer, copy, whatever, my customized style from one drawing to a new drawing.  If I want to see my customized style, I have to recreate it from scratch in each and every drawing where I want to use it.

How to transfer a surface style from one drawing to another?  By the way, I tried opening up both drawings, with both toolspace/settings windows open.  Tried dragging and dropping the customized style to the new drawing.  Didn't work.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Elevation Colors In Surface Style

Jun 24, 2013

I have a surface with all sorts of heights, and want to add color to different heights. Getting the color there is not that difficult, but how do I swap them around? i.e. red is 'low ground' and blue is 'high ground'. In Holland we use it the other way around though, so blue should be low ground and red high ground. 

Where exactly do I change this? I've tried it in the surface style tab, surface properties tab, analysis tab, and some others, but no success so far.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Profile Boundary

Aug 14, 2013

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Band Title Text Style

Jul 2, 2013

Is there a way to make the Profile band title a specific text style?  At the moment it seems that when I access

Profile Properties>Pick Band Style>Profile Data Bans Style>Compose Label>Label style composer

I go to the Contents (under Text) and edit it to bring up the Text component Editor.

In this if I go to the Format Tab the text style is set to annotative, however under that it says font style as an overide. How do I remove the override and set the style of the text to the text style. And how do i change the text style.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Label Style - Design Road CL Profile

Apr 9, 2010

how to create a label style for design center of road (simple tangent) in profile that will work between multiple profile views. I've used the 'Create Multiple Views' profile view wizard. I use a horizontal dimension style label for CL road (looks just like an autocad linear dimension). I'd like the label work across separate views i.e. stop at view end, pick back up at view start.

The label I currently use is simply a line component from tangent start dimension to tangent end dimension and the text component is anchored to the line midpoint. Label looks as intended for normal use. For some reason the line drops as if looking for the actual pvi at the right side when i use multiple views.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Profile Style That Shows Invert Only?

Jun 14, 2012

I'm dealing with a city that based their drawings on LDD, and they chose to show pipes as just one line on a profile, representing the invert line.  In LDD, they pretty much left their pipe profiles as "draft profile" or whatever is used to be called.  Now I have to mimic their standard, using Civil 3D.  There isn't a handy-dandy style setting that I can find, to do this.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile View Style X Plan Production?

Jul 9, 2013

I'm working with plan production sheets and having some trouble. My vertical exaggeration makes me want to split the profile, but when I do it, they get glued together. My left vertical grid numeration stays on the middle of the grid and I get a lot of information overlapped. What I need is to put some gap between these, or split'em. Other issue is that the axis offset of my Profile Style isn't being applied, as well as other configs.

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 Civil 3D :: Corridor / Surface Style To Display Slopes

Jun 6, 2013

I am looking for either a corridor style or surface style to display slopes while in plan view while working on a corridor. I know you can turn on slope arrows as a surface style, but I am actually looking for the grade to be displayed next to a slope arrow. Hopefully I am explaining it properly.

I just am looking for a better way to spot errors before putting surfaces into machine control without checking station by station in the section editor.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Style - Line Component Length

Jun 20, 2013

I have surface style (could be slope or spot elevation) with a 2 line component, and text component above and below the line.  I'm trying to create on style for many options. I'm using c3d 2013, but moving to 2014.

I would like to do the following after placing the label:

1.  adjust the length of the line component.  (ex: as I rotate the lable, the length of seg 1 changes )
2.  turn off one of the line component
3.  adjust the angle of one of the line component.
4.  when drag, the length of the line changes to a new value.

and while I'm asking, is there a way to move/rotate/drag the syle to a percise distance.  I want the leader to be 1 unit long at 30 degree angle.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Finding Surface Setting / Style Option?
