AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Design Profile Actively Selected With Grips Showing

Oct 24, 2013

We have recently installed Civil 3D 2014 Service Pack 1, and while for the most part it works great, we are noticing one significant issue with profiles.  In particular, when we have a design profile actively selected with grips showing, and then select one of the grips, the PVI you are editing becomes offset from the cursor.  When you select a point with the cursor, the profile syncs back up as you would expect.

Just thinking out loud, but it seems like it would be some sort of graphic card issue, but we are seeing it across multiple machines.

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 :: Showing Profile Elevation Differences Right Above Profile 2

Jul 17, 2012

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Design Profile PVIs Disappearing?

Dec 15, 2013

Working in Civil 3D 2014 SP1 I have a Design Profile that I have created by setting the Existing Profile to 'Static' and Creating a Copy of the Existing Profile... This leaves me with a Design Profile that follows the Existing Surface. The problem begins when I delete a section of PVI's and introduce new 'Design PVI's'... I have found that at apparently random times my Design PVI's have been lost and replaced with the original copied PVI's that follow the Existing Surface. This has occurred more than once and I can't find any reason as to why this may be occurring...?

Currently using Civil 3D 2013 & 2014 SP1

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Super Elevation Corridor With ETW Design Profile

Aug 15, 2012

I've got a highway project for which I'm modeling the corridor but the design profiles given to me are for the right lane top edge (ETW) and not the centerline (crown).  This is an undivided planer roadway with a typical 2% cross-slope.  How can I use that profile for the right edge to run my corridor?  I can't seem to get the corridor to use the super table that is attached to the centerline when I use an offset assembly.  Is an offset assembly the right way to go with this design?  

What I've done just to get going is to take that right edge design profile and draw it in my centerline profile view, then lower it 0.24' (which is my 2% normal cross-slope for a 12' lane) and then use that as a centerline profile and let my normal super assembly and table data control the corridor through the supers.  So far that is working--but is there a better way to do this?

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 :: Grip Edit Copied Design Profile?

Apr 12, 2012

It seems like I used to be able to do this in 2012.

I created a design profile and used the copy profile command.  I close the layout toolbar of the original design profile.

When i select the copied design profile to grip edit a pvi, the existing ground profile and copied profile disappears and i cannot grip edit.

I have also tested this with an OOTB template.

Question: How to be able to grip edit a copied design profile in 2012.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Dynamically Linked Vertically Offset Design Profile

Dec 6, 2012

I have a design profile and now I want to create one that's linked to it but have it 0.5m lower than the profile I just laid out. Is there a way to do this? I'd like to keep them dynamically linked so when i manipulate the 1st profile it will drop the 0.5m lower profile. In theory this would be a great feature to have in CIvil 3D.

At this point I will likely need to copy the profile and drop it 0.5m in elevation with edit geometry. Not ideal considering when I adjust the main profile I'll need to redo that process to show the profile 0.5m lower than my main design profile. (used as a side slope target).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Existing Ground And Design Profile - Label Slopes

Dec 15, 2008

I have an existing ground profile, and a design profile. All I want to do is label the slopes of the design. When I click my line label style and turn on the text it labels the existing ground and the design ground. I cannot find the setting in my two profile styles to turn the slopes off in the existing ground.

Oh, how can I get a tick on the V.C. dimension line?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Assembly Not Showing On Profile

Aug 1, 2013

I can’t seem to manage to get the profile working, the assembly seems to look ok but it doesn’t show on the profile!

The assembly just follows the line of existing ground and does not show the height of the assembly (barrier). Also, if you take a quick section through the alignment/corridor it shows the assembly but doesn’t show it fully?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Bands - Multiple Surfaces Sampling From One Design Profile?

Jun 26, 2013

I have 2 different surfaces (Existing Ground & Proposed Pipe Invert) that I want to have the elevations shown for in a profile data band, but I want them to show at the design profile's PVIs (Proposed Road).  Is it possible to set up a data band style that samples at one profile's geometry points but displays the elevations from these points from a different profile?  My workaround is to set the data bands to all sample from the design profile first and label over the design profile's data band but I'm hoping for a cleaner solution.  Attached is an image showing the profile view in question.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Quick Way To Show All Lines On Profile For Design And Drafting Purposes?

Sep 28, 2012

i have a long alignment going through a lot of creeks. right now the creeks are in xref just polylines but it intersect with alignments at areas.

is there a quick way to show all these lines on profile for design and drafting purposes? ideally want to just show a line at each intersection would be fine.

tried using pipes takes too long to set up. this is one important feature to have in the software.

i can program it again but i have not enough time to finish this project by mid october if i keep programming things.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Showing Features In Profile Bands

Oct 29, 2012

I'm currently making a profile view where i want my features/objects to be shown in the bands for chain age elevation etc.

I have fences footpaths & vegetation lines that i can show in my profile view by 'projecting objects to profile view', but i was wondering if I could show these in the bands instead as it would be more convenient.

From what i can see in my bands I can label at Major Stations, Minor Stations, Horizontal Geometry Point, Vertical Geometry Point, Station Equation & Incremental Distance.

I've attached a picture showing what it currently looks like.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Showing Super Elevation In Profile View

Jun 1, 2012

We don not show CL profiles and only show the gutters on the CL profile view. We also do not used profile bands.

I need to show Superelevation on both left and right profiles complete with labeling.

Short of creating a seperate alignment for each, sampling the corridor surface, superimposing it onto the CL profile view and then creating a layout profile by drawing over the sampled surface.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Projecting Objects To Profile View And Showing Point Of Intersection

Nov 11, 2013

Say I'm projecting some 3D polylines to a profile view I have, and the 3D polylines cross the alignment defining the profile view. Is there a way to format the projections such that the point of intersection is identified, and that the points will be updated if I change either the alignment or the 3D polylines?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Vertical Curve Information Not Showing Up On Profile Created From Corridor Line?

Aug 9, 2012

I created a road centerline profile and corridor and then created a profile of the two curb lines from the corridor. The road profile that I made has a vertical curve in it but the curb profiles do not show that information, just grade breaks every 25 feet based on the corridor sampling distance.

I would like to have the vertical curve information on the curb profiles.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Grips For Labels For Line And Curve Does Not Use Z Changes?

I'm using label for line & curve. 

I have discovered that the points from it is created are fixed in Z value.

You can use the grips with object snap , you can move the grips but the Z values are  preserved......

it should be to get the Z value of X,Y,Z given by object snap , isn't it ?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Network Lost Grips

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Lighting Up Grips When Selecting Point Group?

Oct 5, 2013

when selecting a point group from the prospector tab, sometimes the point grips will light up and sometimes only the points will be only dashed.

Having the grips light up like that is very useful when viewing a region with many point groups.

How do I toggle this on and off?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Procedure To Actively View Section Plane In Assembly Or Part

Oct 6, 2011

there is a command or simple procedure to actively view a section plane in an assembly or part. I know there are the static methods of using slice graphics and section view however I'm looking to create a live section where I am able to constantly move the plane through the model thus altering the live section as it appears on screen, similar to the way a model can be viewed in Tekla with the cut section command.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Slow In Selecting Grips For Structure / Pipe Labels

Jul 15, 2009

I have a pipe network that has labels for structures and pipes. To be able to read the information better, I click on a label and try to move by the grip. The problem is that it freezes the cursor for approximately 10 seconds before I can move it to grip the label and relocate it to another place. Did I miss any setting. Since this is slowing me down in plan production.

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 :: How To Base Structure Profile Label Location On Top Of Profile View

Nov 4, 2013

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?
