AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Duplicate Triplicate Point Groups?

Jul 29, 2011

For some reason I have three copies of my point groups. I have not inserted any drawings into my current drawing. Just been working with pipe networks. There are three copies of every point group even though only a couple of point groups are being used in this drawing if that matters.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Sheets Generates Duplicate Point Groups

Aug 7, 2012

C3D2012. We have a master C3D template that includes a number of point filters (let say 20 of them) and a number of layouts (again, let say 20 of them) to accommodate our two sheet sizes. 

Here is the issue that I am running into, when the Plan Production tools use a layout to create plan and profile sheets from the same master template that is used to initially create the file, the whole process will duplicate each point group 150 times for every group (see attached).  So, what I ended up with is 20 point groups X 150.  In my example, I ended up with 3000 duplicate point groups.

The end result is a file that is somewhat unusable do to the number of point groups.  The other issue is now that all of these point groups are in the file you are unable to delete them all at once without "crashing" C3D.  So you are left to deleting a handful at time.  It is also best if you turn UNDO off while you do it.

I have been able to duplicate this in multiple files; however, from the same master template.  As a test I did create separate templates (which are pretty bare bones) for the plan production and all works well.  Therefore, there is either an issue with C3D and Plan Production and point groups or it is our template.

I would really like to nail down (as best I can) what is generating the 150 duplicates/ point group name to see if there is a way "around" this.

Currently, I am unable to share the template, but it shouldn't be too difficult to re-create.  Take any template, add some point groups to, add a plan and profile sheet to one of the layouts, create a new file from this template, finally create plan and profile sheets from the layout in the very same template.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Figure Groups And Survey Point Groups

Oct 15, 2009

I just discovered survey figure groups and am playing around with them. Great way to bring certain figures in & out. What seems crazy is that I have to check them on/off one at a time. Am I missing something or is this the only way to add figures to a figure group?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Set Default Point Style For Point Groups

Jun 20, 2012

How to set a default point style for point groups?  Whenever I import survey points, I always put them into their own point group, so I can display each day's worth of survey data differently.  For some reason, the point style always defaults to a certain style (our control point symbol).  I'd like it to default to Basic, so I don't have to change this every time.  Is it a template drawing setting somewhere?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Groups Elevations

Feb 28, 2013

I have two different point groups that I am using in my drawing.  One is from a survey done a few years ago and the other is from one that I did just the other day. 

I don't have a problem inserting the points or whatnot, but the issue I am having is that when I click "Datum" to adjust the elevations of my new point group (to make my benchmark 100.00'), Civil 3D alters all of my points; including the ones from the older survey. Is a way to adjust elevations to only one set of points.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Exporting Multiple Point Groups?

Oct 22, 2013

I have about 50 point groups that the client needs in an ENZ format, is it possible to export them all at once with the name of the point group being the name of the file?

if so, the more annoying part of this is that I actually have to make the ENZ file an ENZD file with the D being the name of the file for each point, if both of these things are possible

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multiple Auto Generated Point Groups

Mar 21, 2012

I am running into a problem where Civil 3D is creating multiple point groups of my 4 existing groups (the original group names are Topo, Existing Ground, Hide, and All Points).  The new groups seem to be copies of the originals in terms of styles but do not include the points  that were designated in the originals (no points are assigned in these copies).

The groups appear some time after I create the surface.

I've also noticed that this occurs in my list of grading criteria as well.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2013 / How To Label (Name) Of Point In 2 Points Groups

Aug 12, 2013

I have created 8 points (from 4 locations with 2 depths in each location) in _All Points/Points. These 8 points are grouped into 2 Point Groups:

Points #1, #3, #5 & #7 for Point Group - (1) Depth#1 and
Points #2, #4, #6 & #8 for Point Group - (2) Depth#2.

The "Name" of Point is filled with the SampleID (like cdc-ss01-s1, cdc-ss01-s2,...) - see the attached file. From the HELP of AutoCAD C3D 2013,  I have read/studies the "Point Tables" and "Point Label Styles" and I cannot figure out how to label the 8 points to show the "Point Number", "Point Elevation", and "Name" of Point (i. e. the SampleID like cdc-ss01-s1 & cdc-ss01-s2, ....).!!

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 :: Duplicate Geometry Point Labels In PV Bands

Apr 29, 2012

I do know that tere is supposed to be an algorithm in C3D that will recognise when two geometry points are coincident on a profile view...that is, say a profile vertical geometry point happens to occur on a major station (for example).

I have never seen this actually work. When I have this situation, the labels stagger and I get two columns of identical data on my PV.

I know I can remove individual labels bY CTRL+select and eIther erase or turn visibility to false, but I would rather that C3D figured it out for me and removed the duplicate data.

Viideo link explains what I mean..

Photoshop :: Duplicate Groups Not Working In CS6?

Feb 13, 2013

Everytime I try to duplicate groups in photoshop cs6 to another open PSD file it usually works, but lately whenever I try to do it it only gives my the option to duplicate the groups to either a brand new file (an untitled file) or to the original file (that i'm duplicating the groups from). It won't allow me to duplicate them to another open PSD file.
For example, (in case i'm not being clear), say I have 2 files open such as A.psd and B.psd but i want to duplicate a bunch of groups i created in A.psd to B.psd. When i click on the groups i want to duplicate and the option box opens- in the destination box it only gives me the option of duplicating the groups to either A.psd (which is useless) or to a new file. It doesn't give the option to duplicate the groups to B.psd. It only gives the option if it's just a layer. I either have to merge groups into one layer or make them into a smart object and use the duplicate layer option instead. It's become a annoying problem because I want my groups to just duplicate. I shouldn't have to merge them in order to send them into another file. It has always worked until now.

Illustrator :: How To Set Center Point For Repeat Or Duplicate

Nov 30, 2012

I can't find a way to do this
I often need to repeat an action, such as resize an object proportionally from center (using alt+shift) or rotating for example. I get same object resized or rotated in same place and maintaining it´s center.
But when i repeat the action with control or command D on second object, it does not respect it´s center, while it seems to do it from first object´s center, so it moves.
Is there a way to set the center point for repeat or duplicate?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Grading Groups And Surfaces?

The problem I am having is when I turn on the triangles for one surface, I get the triangles for all the embankments and EG. The software keeps adding to the EG and doesn't cut out each embankment. I know I'm missing a step but I'm unable to find it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Merging Grading Groups

Oct 3, 2013

I'm currently trying to model all siteworks for a project using Civil 3D 2014. I created several grading groups that represent the various pads I need for the general project layout.  Since this was the way I knew how to model the pads, now I have some intersections on the slopes between one grading group and the other. I was wondering if I could "merge" the grading groups in order for them to be just one big pad, that maintains all the levels from the other pads. Here is an image of what I am trying to explain:

What I want to do is to merge the regions circled in red, so that I have only one building pad on my terrain.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Points And Groups Are Gone After Drawing Recovery

I'm using Civl3D 2013 and I have a drawing that crashed and a recover dwg was created.

I ran the recovery and now the points and groups are gone. Is there a way to get them back?

I can go back to an older drawing. But, i'm trying to avoid losing a few hours of cleanup.

Is this just one of the bugs that is in Civil3D?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Import Point Data For Each Point Includes Hyperlink

Jan 17, 2013

I have a database of points I am trying to import, and the point data for each point includes a hyperlink.  I've created a set of custom User-Defined Property Classifications for all the data types in the point database, and I've created a point file format to use to import the points. 

It's a database of existing curb ramps, the data includes things like widths, slopes, some text, and a hyperlink to the Google Streetview at each ramp.  I've created a custom point label that will show the data I need to see at each ramp.

All goes great except that the import fails because of the hyperlinks.  I've tested it by removing the hyperlinks from a small test portion of the data set, and the test points are then successfully imported.  I suppose I can delete the hyperlinks from the entire database, but if there is a way to include the hyperlinks in the point import I would prefer that.

And the result is the same, the grading that will be create can sometimes look oki, but suddenly they tend to disappear or look weird...
