AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Displaying User Defined Contours

Mar 6, 2012

I have defined 3 user-defined contours for various elevations in my pond. I would like to disply them differently from one another, so I set their display styles in the analysis window where I created them. Unfortunately, the are only displayed per the settings in the surface style which is 1 - not what I want and 2 - all identitical. I have tried various settings in the surface style, but the contours will not display the way I have selected in the analysis window.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: User Defined-Property Classifications Not Displaying In Xref Table

Aug 7, 2013

I am displaying stationing for my points, the points were brought in with a user defined classification. Then a table was created with the classification.

Base file- table looks good / when I xref the table it loses the station formatting.

I even tried importing all my user defined tables and styles and still didnt work

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Displaying Contours Takes A Long Time

It seems to happen randomly and I can't tell what triggers it. Everytime I regen or autosave/save the status shows "displaying contours" and a load bar that takes way too long and slows me down...

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Hide Portions Of Corridor Surface From Displaying Contours

May 3, 2013

I have tried multiple types of hide boundaries,etc. for this, and cant find a solution.  I'm sure it is very simple, but..

I need a corridor that transitions from 2% sideslope to 0% sideslope.  This transition occurs in a horizontal AND vertical curve.  I understand I could use EOP alignments, profiles, etc to achieve this.  I dont have the time or civil3D knowledge to figure this out on a friday afternoon...

So... my plan is to not apply the transition, and just hide the contours in the transition area and sketch them in by hand.  I want to corridor surface to remain so that when other profiles are created from this surface it is still somewhat accurate (instead of removing this portion of corridor surface, and adding simple contours to the surface).  I just want the surface hidden for +/- 50'. 

Everything I have tried hides the surface everywhere, including new profiles from the surface.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: User Defined Parcel Properties

Apr 16, 2012

I'm trying to add user defined properties to parcels, and then apply various styles to control shading of parcels, and to display some or all of the user defined data, as applicable depending on the values of that data.

I have managed to create a user defined category within my [User-Defined Property Classification] and then create categories within that classification.

The problem I'm having is that I want to be able to see those classifications in prospector so that I can sort based on those values, and then batch assign styles. How to display the classifications.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Points - User Defined Properties

Nov 8, 2012

So - user defined properties for points are great.  My only problem is that I can't copy and paste them between drawings without losing the user defined properties.  I've tried it in both c3d 2011 and 2013. 

I can export them into a user defined point file and import them into another drawing the same way, but that is more cumbersome than just copying and pasting.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Editing Default User Contours In Styles?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Add User Contours And Extract Polylines 2012

May 21, 2013

I know 2013 are more exposed and the .net can extract contours. However using 2012 at the moment. so my plan is using .net to add the user contours and then use com object to extract.

so far i can get the surface object and assign to two different surface variable one is .net and one is com. I am looking at the surface analysis object and can't figure out how to add contours at user elevation. it is also read only in the surface object. but i find this:


which is obvious not read only. so any sample code of the procedure of assign user contours?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Corrupted User-defined Color Books 2011

Apr 27, 2010

Just upgraded from Civil 3D 2010 32-bit to Civil 3D 2011 64-bit. Over the years several user-defined color books were constructed using the Autocad Color Book Editor. With previous upgrades, these ACB files were simply transferred to the new version and worked OK. However, having upgraded to 2011, when the color books are opened, instead of the original colors, the color pages are corrupted, showing what look like Pantone red, green, and blue colors.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Created User Defined Properties To Add Up To 5 Inverts To Topo Point Object

Aug 26, 2013

I have created user defiined properties to add up to 5 inverts to a topo point object.  Each consists of the direction of the invert as an enumerated list that can be picked from (N, NE, S, SE, etc) and the second is the measured distance from rim down to IE.  I created these in order IE1_Dir, IE1_Meas, IE2_Dir, IE2_Meas, etc and the first time I used it everything worked fine and was in the proper order.  Now after opening the drawing for a 2nd time all of the UDP's are scrambled making it a bit of a PITA to enter into the proper fields.

I do not see any logical order to why it is displaying this way as if it was in order of creation or alphebetical it would not have changed.  Is there any way to correct this or is this a case of Civil 3D is going to do whatever it wants to do?

AutoCAD VB :: Open User Defined CHM Using F1

Feb 2, 2006

The act of opening the CHM file is no problem from VBA. However, this particular routine does not use a dialog box, only a "select objects" prompt. I want to allow the user to press "F1" or "'HELP" at this point and have it open my CHM file.

In lisp, you can use (setfunhelp) to do this.

So in theory, if the VBA sub is called like this:

(defun c:foo ()(vl-vbaload "c:/program files/

...then the lisp function should work, but it doesn't. Pressing "F1" or "'HELP" during the vba routine, simply opens the AutoCAD HELP to the default page.

AutoCAD Architecture :: User Defined Hatch

Aug 25, 2011

I have a drawing from an architect, and they have used a user defined hatch pattern. But I cannot use it. I can find it's name, it shows up in properties and in the hatch tools. But it isn't in any *.pat files and I can't copy it into my tool palettes. where I could find it, it shows up just fine in the drawing, but I can't figure out how to use it in other areas, not even within the same drawing.

AutoCAD 2013 :: User Defined Hatch Patterns

Oct 23, 2013

I am having some trouble with hatch patterns.  We are using FM Systems as our CAFM tool and there is a plugin for it within AutoCAD.  The plugin allows you to create hatch patterns for things such as departments and space types.  Right now this is working perfectly within AutoCAD 2012.  However, when I try to run the routine within AutoCAD 2014, the only hatches that show up are the solid ones.  In other words, any pattern that is not a solid pattern does not show up.  I tried comparing all of the Hatch System Variables between 2012 and 2014, but still get the same thing.

AutoCad 2D :: Creating Leader With User Defined Arrowhead

Nov 22, 2013

I am able to create my own leader style, a loop, similar to the "dot blank" option that ACAD provides.

However, as with any leader style, once you pick the starting point of your leader you must extend it a certain length in order for the arrow, dot, slash, etc. to appear. This is a draw back in tight spaces where you are trying to fit the leader and the subsequent text.

Basically I would like to know if there is a setting that will allow me to pick the starting point of the leader and have the shortest length of leader line while still showing the "arrowhead".

I realize I can scale down the arrowhead type to give me more space. I realize I can explode the leader and shorten the line portion of the leader. I realize I can create a block of a "leader" that will give the appearance that I am looking for.

However, these are last ditch options if there is no solution.

AutoCad 2D :: Numbering MText Using User Defined Block?

Oct 30, 2012

Possible to use a block, such as a hex or circle with a number centered, instead of the out of the box number with a period? I have Key Notes that need numbers with a hex, and Construction notes, that need numbers in a circle. I can label these items with multileaders with a user defined block, but when I type out the notes using mtext, I want to use the exact same blocks to number the notes that correspond with my multileader label. I have been manually inserting blocks along side of my un-numbered mtext notes.
