AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Drawing A Line Object Using Point Description

Oct 17, 2013

How shall I draw  lines into a created surface using raw or full description of ascii file format(COGO)

for example in the imported  file i have points to describe a road center line(CL),or edge of the road(ERD),breaklines(BRKL) and want lines represented by the descriptions to be drawed in the surface  so that i can use the lines as guides in profiles design.I didn't want to use point number which are not serially ,and have tried to use point grouping without any success

The attached file could be of good use.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Description Gets Truncated?

Nov 28, 2012

In LDDT 2009, I was able to describe points like this: STK #32

But in Civil 3D 2013, whenever I use the # symbol, the description gets truncated.  So, using the point description above, it will show up in Civil 3D 2013 as STK rather than STK #32.

Is this a setting or something that I can switch on so that the I can use symbols such as # and - in my point description?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Freeze Point Number And Description

Dec 4, 2012

I just received a drawing with a bunch of points in it. One of the layer is called V-ROAD-CNTR-PNTS. Unfortunately, the point number, description, and elevation are all in that same layer. How do I keep just the elevation turned on but turn off the point description and number? When I turn off or freeze the layer V-ROAD-CNTR-PTNS, all three disappear. I just need the elevation showing.

Attached is an image of my screen.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Blocks And Description Keys?

Mar 15, 2012

I am trying to set up our templete and I am having issues.  I have set up description keys and such. When I import our survey data all comes in (ie blocks and linework). The problem is when I try to plot the block that are inserted on what appears to be the correct layer they do not plot out.  When I freeze the point layer the block disappears as well. What setting am I missing that will create the blocks according to the description key and keep them on a separate layer like it did in Land Desktop but keep them dynamic? I am not sure if the subscription service covers.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Survey Database Point Description Length?

Dec 6, 2012

Civil 3D 2013 SP1 (64bit)

When importing an event, my point descriptions are cutoff at 16 characters.

Is there any setting to increase this?

If I have Microsoft Access installed on my computer, can one easily modify the table?

If you can modify the table using Access, can you define a default DB or would I have to redefine the string length within a table everytime I create a DB thru Civil 3D GUI?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Points / Symbols / Point Styles And Description Keys

Nov 26, 2013

C3D 2012 SP4
Win7 Pro

 I want my survey symbols to come in on their own layers, separate from the point label. Lets use UPOL as an example: I have a point style UPOL*.  It has assigned to it a block representing the utility pole.The size is set to drawing units, and sized to .1 inches.

                                               The marker is on layer: V-NODE-POLE-SYMB

                                               The label is on layer: V-NODE-POLE

The description key is as follows.  UPOL*

                                                        Style: UPOL*

                                                        Point Label Style: Standard

                                                        Layer: V-NODE-POLE-SYMB

No other parameters have been choosen; scale parameter, fixed scale, or use drawing scale.

Have I done this correctly, to accomplish my task?  I also noticed that I cannot turn the point label off by picking it.  I have to turn the layer off in the layer manager.Should I use the description keys to scale the symbol, instead of the point style?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How Styles / Point Groups / Description Keys / Layers Collide

Aug 24, 2011

In an effort to firm up my understanding of how styles, point groups, description keys and layers collide, I followed the recommendations of an article. How groups/deskeys function together for layer visibility.

This process of Layer visibility that is supposed to make the program flexible makes it almost impossibly complicated.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Perpendicular Line From Point Laying On A Line / Pline

Sep 30, 2013

 I have a line or a pline segment and i want to start a line from a point laying there and go perpendicular outwards. Is there a way to do it with tracking?

Yes, i saw the command draw line at an angle but i find it a little bit complicated for a simple task like that. I am sure autodesk have a simplest solution about that.

If i am already at the draw line mode and i can easy catch the tracking perpendicular to previous segment but if i want to start from another line and go perpendicular i cannot make the tracking work.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Raw description Not Within Description Key

Oct 21, 2011

we are updating fron LDD 2004 to Civil 3D 2012 needles to say it a huge change. I've got my template almost done I'm just having one problem. With LDD any point that came in with a raw descripitoin not within the description key it would be placed in the current layer with point number, descripton and elevation. How do I make that happen with Civil3D do I have to change my default lable settings? When I import points with a raw description not within my description key it places the point on Layer 0 and only shows the node no point number.

Handy for finding perpendicular intersections. Whatever this is it no longer works. How do I get it back?

When I draw a line, is there a way to say, "Start at point (864,0), go exactly 270° down (actually, I can hold down the shift key for that, but I digress...) and end at the other side of the canvas at point (864, 3456)?

A script would probably work well, but I've never dipped into that.

Illustrator :: Drawing Line From End Point Of Existing One Without Joining

Jan 4, 2013

How can I draw a line from the endpoint of an existing line (snap to grid is on), without the lines being joined?  Joining causes two problems for me:
1. The arrowhead at the end of the existing line moves to the end of the joined line, whereas I want the arrowhead in the middle of the combined line.
2. Even without entering isolation mode the new line gets joined to a line which belong to a group, thus becoming part of that group as well. This defies the use of grouping to create logically connected units.
