AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Dynamically Dependent Profiles

Apr 11, 2013

I've heard it said that it's possible to make two separate layout profiles dynamically dependent.  For example, making a driveway centerline profile dependent on the roadway centerline profile it's connected to.  The idea is that if you revise the roadway centerline profile, up or down, that the driveway profile will automatically go up or down with it.

Is this true?  I didn't readily see anything in the profiles area of the docs or the tutorials.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Vertical Offset Layout Profiles Dynamically

Sep 14, 2012

I am creating construction plans sets that require 3 road profiles for the left edge, center and right edge.  I would like to dynamically link the center line profile with the edge profiles. 

I have created alignment offsets to obtain the existing surface at the offset location.  I would like the edge profiles to have a vertical offset from the center profile.  Also if I modify the center profile I want it to dynamically adjust the edge profiles.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2013 - Dynamic Surface Profiles Acting As Static Profiles

Nov 14, 2012

I am having some issues with surface profiles on a dreffed alignment no updating dynamically.

Currently it requires me to set them to static, then back to dynamic and they update.

I am well aware of the issue of dreffed surface profiles staying static. I am using the work around of dreffing in the surface and sampling in the drawing using the dreffed alignment.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How Objects Dynamically Update A Surface

Aug 17, 2012

I've created a surface from blocks but I need to move many of the blocks to new locations/elevations but if one of the blocks that formed part of the surface build is moved or elevation adjusted the surface doesn't update. I have to reselect and add the blocks to the definition, remove the original blocks and shunt the newly added block up the definitions list.

If Civil points are moved they automatically update the surface (as expected) so is there a list anywhere or which entities/objects will cause the surface to update automatically and which ones won't??

I don't generally get data in this way hence the question so I'm thinking the best way forward would be to convert to Civil Points and make point groups??

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 :: How To Get Cut And Fill Lines On Sheet Files To Dynamically Update

Nov 22, 2013

C3D 2013

I am trying to figure out a way to get the cut and fill lines on my sheet files to dynamically update when I update my corridor.

My work flow:

Currently I have a model drawing with my corridor, which produces cut and fill feature lines.

I create a separate reference file with drefs, and then paste in cut and fill polylines (where I created from the feature lines).

Finally, I have sheet files where I xref in the reference file.

Is there a better way to deal with these cut and fill lines so they are dynamic when I change my corridor?  I don't really want to xref in my model drawing just because it has all sorts of things in there..

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Combination Of 2 Profiles?

Dec 12, 2013

I have 2 alignemnts and 2 profiles, is there a way to to combine both alignment profiles to one profile?  What I am doing is moving the centerline of a road over 10 feet, so that is why I have 2 alignments (existing CL and new CL).  So what I want to show on one profile is existing centerline, existing centerline of new centerline, and proposed centerline of new centerline.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Slopes And Angles In Profiles

Aug 31, 2012

I am using Civil 3D 2012. I am drawing a water line in a profile with a vertical scale of 1" = 10'. I am trying to draw lines at 45 deg angles to account for standard fittings.

Now, I tried to block a 45 deg angle and exaggerate the y scale, but for some reason this does not work well mathematically. Is there a way to draw lies at a certain slope, or at a certain angle from another line, while taking into consideration the scale exaggeration?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profiles Not Synchronizing Upon Open

Oct 19, 2012

I have found recently that surfaces that are sampled in profile views are not synchronized when the drawing is opened. This is incredibly frustrating when I'm just opening a file to plot a new copy. If I forget to resynchronize the drawing, the sampled profiles will not plot.

Is there a system variable I might try to toggle?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Vertically Offsetted Profiles From OG?

Sep 26, 2012

is there a way to create a few profiles say at 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0m vertically above the profile of the ground? without creating the surface again and change the elevation 4 times and making 4 data reference. using those lines for design guides for minimum fill requirements when doing FG profiles. before i just copy, then explode then move the original profile as a polyline. i actually have to explode the polyline after because it's laggy to zoom in the profile for some reason. once lines it's ok. but then again it's not dynamic. i changed my alignment and then those line stayed then have to do it all over again. this maybe a good feature to have next version.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Layout Profiles Left And Right

Jun 24, 2011

Our firm has finally decided to leave LDC 2009 behind and moving to C3D 2012.I would like to ask a few questions about the way plan and profiles are created with C3D.

In LDC, we would create a full profile that included everything in it, that is proposed and existing centerline elevations and left and right top of curb elevations. Then on the sheet layouts, we would make many viewports that showed the proposed and existing sets, that is centers, lefts and rights. (medians in the example attached)

I've been watching many online videos on how to sample center, left and right and how to create a proposed center line but I can't figure out how to make a proposed left and right profile so that I can control drainage into existing inlets.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Profiles Keep Disappearing?

Jun 13, 2013

I have a couple of files with DS surfaces that I cut profiles with and all was fine until today. the surface ref is in the drawing but does not display. If I zoom to it goes to a location not related to the site but there is no display of the surface (all layers and style set to display) this is what view props shows. notice the odd serial number for the data source. through tools space I deleted the refs and re-refed and sampled, but when I close and go back its gone again.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profiles Not Saving All Settings?

Dec 16, 2011

Noticed that after the last update many profile settings like snap aperatures, OSNAPS, and data shortcut working files aren't being remembered?  It has only happened to a couple people, but they are having the exact same issues.

I wish it was simple as the shortcut being reset or pathed to the wrong profile, but it's not the case.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Assigning Different Scale For Profiles

May 8, 2013

If I have a drawing scale set up as 1"=30' and I created some profiles at that scale, and then I need to create a profile at 1"=40' horiz and 1"=4' vert., what is the best way to do that? I believe in the past I tried changing the drawing scale under settings to 1"=40' one time and all of the profiles in the drawing changed to that same scale even though they were drawn at 1"=30', which I want to stay that way.

I think I can leave the drawing settings to 1"=30 and then just assign the scale in the viewport to 1"=40', but then all of the text sizes in the profile view style will adjust according to the scale I use, which will either increase or decrease according to the scale I pick. I would like to keep the profile view style consistent no matter what scale I pick.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Straightening Pressure Pipe Profiles?

Apr 24, 2012

I'm slowly getting familiar with the new pressure pipe tools. So far I like the layout compass but I'm finding the rest to be rather cumbersome to work with.

One problem I have is how to straighten portions of a pipe in profile after fitting it to a surface profile. Each pipe ends up segmented according to it's cut length property. Typically after fitting it to a surface profile we want to straighten the pipe between critical points along the profile. I don't see any way to do this aside from dragging each segment. Is there a way to remove, add or adjust the length of individual segments?

I don't see any other than the videos provided in the new features catalog.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Moving Profiles In Model Space

Mar 12, 2012

When I drop a profile into model space, what happens when I move it?  Like if I have ten different profiles, I'd like to square them all up and organize them to fit neatly into my plan views.  I just scale my border drawing and drop one of those into model space, then fill it up with profiles until it's full. 

I know that I should be working in layout/paper space for this kind of stuff, but this seems easy enough.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Invert Labels In Profiles?

I am trying to place my pipe invert labels at the actual point of the invert. When using the pipe label style composer, I have selected Anchor Point to be "Bottom Inner Diameter". Why is it that the label style still imports into the center of the pipe? No matter which anchor point I choose the label still inserts to the middle of the pipe. Is there a hidden setting that I am missing?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Reference Text Label For Profiles

Jul 18, 2012

I can create single alignment labels (fixed point, offset etc) that show a chainage and, by using reference text, a profile level for an associated profile.

However, using the main labels that are used for displaying chainages along an alignment (alignment chainage label group) I can also add in a reference text label for profiles here, alongside the chainage one, but there is no option to set which profile it references so it just displays '???'.

Getting the alignment labels to also display associated profile levels at every chainage point would be incredibly useful.
