AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Drawing Road Cross Section?

Apr 30, 2011

I have cross section data of the existing ground in the form of offset elevation. Can i draw cross sections from the this data? I am using Autocad Civil 3D.

Formate of the data for one section is:

Station 12+000
offset               Elevation
-25                    350
-20                    347
-15                    348

My problem now is that i have piles of gravel & sand, i got the volume on each pile for and now want to make a cross section drawing showing the elevations on them. I went to section views and create mutiple views but it asks me for a aligment, but i just want to base the drawing off the contours of the piles (elevations)

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Corridor Created Using A Primary Road Full Section As Assembly

Jan 31, 2013

I am using C3D 2013, I have a corridor created using a Primary Road Full Section as my assembly, I have all the slopes and ditching set, when I go to model the corridor the ditching is not showing correctly, only small sections of the ditching are showing when I know there should be more. I have the assembly setup to build the ditching when there is less than a meter fill, but will not work.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Scale Detail Cross-section Hatching In Drawing?

Aug 7, 2013

Is it possible to scale the cross-hatching in a detail that was created from a section view so it looks better with the scale of a detail? If the scale factor of a detail is much larger than its parent, the cross-hatching is very sparse and detracts from clarity rather than adding to it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Projection

May 12, 2012

if i have one feature line i want to project to all sections in a sample line group it would seem you should be able to pick the one line and assign in a label style and you would be done quick and easy. instead if you pick the multiple projection option you get this percentage distance box and it tend to grab stuff you don't want.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: SSA - Cross Section Import?

Jan 21, 2011

I'm just starting to get involved with using SSA, and I'm wondering if it's possible to import sample lines/alignments (a la Hec-Ras).  I see that there's an irregular channel editor, but no import options that I can see.  I'll end up with about a dozen or so x-sections.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Band

Mar 5, 2012

I have a band label set up for my cross sections that will show existing grade and finish grade elevations at the 0' offset mark of each section.

However, the band does not show when I create my sections. The only way I can seem to get it to show is by right clicking a section, section view properties, bands tab, click 'import band set' at bottom of window, and select they style i want to use. But I have to do this for each section individually. That is a problem as I have over 200 sections for one piece of this project.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Direction

Nov 14, 2013

I'm currently working on a cross section plan and was wondering if there was any way I can change the direction of the cross section view.  I'm currently just using 2 sample lines, so just 2 views are needed.  My problem is that it seems like one cross section...the view is facing upstream and the other sample line, the cross section view is facing downstream.

Is this normal?  How come both cross sections don't face the same direction?  So with one x section it's in a East-West direction but the other is a West to East direction.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Display

Feb 8, 2012

I am working with cross sections for the first time and have run into a few things I can't seem to figure out. In attachment XSEC CIVIL 3D.pdf you will see how the cross sections currently look in my drawing. 

My questions:

1.  I cant seem to edit the elevation labels on the right side of the section to match the left side. Where/how can I do this?
2.  What is the red line? In some sections it exactly follows the assembly section, but in a few (like this one) it doesn't quite follow. Does this line show where manual editing was done?
3.  Where the pavement ends, there is a vertical line which I only want to show on the two pavement layers, it shows all the way thru the assembly. This also happens at the centerline of the assembly and at the edge of shoulder. I figured out how to turn them all off, but I want the edge of pavement vertical lines there.
4.  Although the assembly section comes in on color 161 which should plot black for my pen setting, it plots true color. I haven't been able to figure out how to switch this.  The second attachment shows a section from a LDD project a few years back which is how I would like this section to plot.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Automatic Cross Section Labels

Dec 9, 2013

create a label style for cross sections that will label the travel way in the run:rise format and will label fore and back slopes in a percent format.  I can figure out how to make them all one or the other, but am having trouble getting them to reflect correctly based on where they are attached.I am having trouble coming up with the actual expression or you can do it thru code set styles, but regardless of settings that I change nothing on the cross section view changes.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Elevation Labels

Mar 21, 2012

Attached is a pdf showing the issue I'm having with the way elevations labels appear on the outside edges of cross sections. 

Issue #1:

I added the dimension to show that the bottom of the cross section is actually at 97.5 but is labeled as 98

Issue #2:

I would prefer the bottom of the cross section to be at an even elevation (98 not 97.5)

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Volume Display?

Jul 26, 2013

I have been asked to place volumes on cross sections with a certain look, that I am not sure if it is possible. For know I am just going to use text, but I would like to come up with a solution for our template and work flow. Below is an attached copy of a markup I have received asking me to show this information on the cross section similar to how he has written it. At this point I only know how to create the tables of to the side. Is it possible to dynamically show this information quickly like shown below? I have a feeling the engineers I work with will not be happy at all with a table off to the side. I am currently using 2013

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multiple Cross Section Labels?

Jan 31, 2013

Using 2011 - Having trouble with cross section labeling.  I have multiple label markers such as ROW, and multiple EASEMENT types.  I've created corridors for each label type - each will show up if their corridor has a corridor section line at the same station as the base corridor, but at odd ball stations (like driveway openings)  the labels do not show up, I'm thinking its because I don't have these corridor section lines in each corridor.  Is there an easier work around rather than manually adding the section lines in each corridor?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Data Bands

Jan 2, 2009

I am creating a data band for Finished Ground. I have created a Top surface from my corridor and have sampled that as well as my original ground. I am trying to add data bands to an existing cross section view. When adding data bands for the cross section, I first go to the Section View Properties, add the data band, in this case, "FG Elevations", In the "Section1" column, I pick the Corridor surface that was sampled.

The data band does not display data. I know the data band works, because I picked the original ground as the "Section1" and it gave me the elevation.

I have noticed that under the "Sections" tab of the Section View Properties, and in the "Type" column, the original ground surface has a different symbol than the corridor surface. I have also noticed that if I have only the "Draw" boxes for the sampled corridor surfaces in the section view checked, nothing is drawn the section view. The corridor surfaces seem like they are not really there. Am I not able to retrieve data band data from a corridor surface?? If this is the case how do I go about making the corridor top surface something I can get data from?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Cross Section Sheets

Dec 8, 2012

After I create cross section sheets (Output---> generate cross section), the generated sections do not fit in the sheet exactly. In fact, the generated layouts do not cover the sections correctly, and some sections fall outside the created sheet.

It should be noted that I use the "ISO A1 Section 1 to 500" layout which is installed on the default pass of C3D (template folder), and the scale of "view section style" is  set to 1/500. I tried the scale of the drawing (toolspace window---> setting tab---> rigth click on the name of drawing and click edit drawing setting) with 1/500, however the problem was not solved.

Another important issue is that the section views in the "Model space" are shown correctly, but my problem is in the layout space after generating cross sections.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Create Some Cross Section Reports

Oct 8, 2012

I am trying to create some cross section reports. But I have noticed that none of the options available (Section Point Report, or any of the ones that use Sample Lines) will show any featureline information if it is not part of the region which is attached to the alignment chosen in the report.

For instance, I prefer to create my splitter islands as a seperate baseline (levels taken from a dummy surface) and add a simple kerb assembly to this. (So both are in the same corridor). My normal visual cross sections show the splitter island kerbs without issue. But the cross section reports do not. 

I have a similar problem with some of the footways, which are created on a separate baseline. (I am working on car parks, where the footway surrounds the car park. So it is easier to create the footways seperately). The section reports do not pick up the footways, presumably because it belongs to a different baseline.......

I dont understand why a section report cant simply pick up any featureline it crosses??

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Metric Cross Section Scales

May 31, 2013

C3D 2012 Sp3

I have a Dref alignment, samples lines, and an Xref'd corridor in a drawing. This drawing represents a base file for cross sections. The drawing scale is set to 1:10.  I want my cross sections to be 10 horz. and 5 vert.  I create the sections views in ths drawing, with sheet production on (A0 sized sheet) and they come in perfectly in model space. I then use the production tools and create the section sheets.  Here s the problem:  The viewport on the newly created section sheets has to be set to 1:100,  not 1:10, in order for the sections to plot to the correct scale. Is the viewport ratio of 10 times smaller then the parent drawing (1:10) the correct way to create the sheets?  I thought that the viewport scale should be equal to the parent drawing model space scale (1:10).  My border in the template layout is sized in mm (A0).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Assembly Views

Aug 8, 2013

Is it possible to have XS sampled assemblies displayed on individual cross sections?  I know that the sample line group properties control which assemblies are sampled and displayed. Say that assemblies A,B and C are sampled and displayed on sections from 0+00 to 3+00.  Can ONLY assemblies A and B be displayed on sections from 1+50 to 2+00, and A.B and C on everything else?
