AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Editing Profile Style Of Single Profile Instead All Of Profiles?

Mar 5, 2012

I have a group of profiles in a drawing and I want to change how one of the profiles is displayed through the profile view style manager, but I do not want to change how all of the profiles look. Is there a way to change the way a single profile looks without changing all of them?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Three Profiles On A Plan And Profile Sheet

Aug 27, 2012

What is the most current Civil 3D workflow recommendation from Autodesk, for people who are required to show and label three profiles: centerline, left and right gutter flowlines; on a plan and profile sheet for drainage review? The gutter flow line profiles are required to show their true longitudinal grade.

Just looking for the main salient steps at the conceptual level.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Getting Profiles Into Plan And Profile Sheets

Jun 17, 2013

So I had to jump into the middle of a project. The Viewframes were already created but when I go to the plan and profile sheets for the viewframes the profile is not showing and I'm not sure how to choose the correct profile and display it in the corresponding plan and profile sheet.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Lost Profiles On One Profile View?

Mar 7, 2013

I have a drawing with 13 profile views.  12 of them are working fine.

One profile view has 'lost' all its profiles.  It should have one surface profile, and 6 superimposed profiles that are designed by layout in other profile views.

The profiles still show up in prospector and in the profile view properties, but you can't see them in the drawing.  The profile view is on the same style as all the others, and the profiles are on multiple styles, but the same as their source profile and others in the drawing that are working fine.

I edited the alignment a little to see if that would 'jog the memory', then I turned all layers on and thawed.  Still nothing.  Then I superimposed a couple more profiles to see if they would show up.  Again, they show in the properties, but do not plot in profile view.

I have a separate drawing with this alignment & profiles shortcut into it, and I'm seeing exactly the same behaviour there too.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Style In Profile

Mar 2, 2013

Trying to make some changes to improve reading. The pipes are going to center of structure and would like to change the appearance but maintain the lenght to the center or in last case to the structure wall.  

The image explains the 'problem'. Red line should be the correct appearance

There is a way to correct the position?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Single Line Manhole And Pipes In Profile View

May 31, 2007

I remember seeing an article or web cast on how to create a style to display a single line for a manhole. It may have been about using the parts create tool. But for the life of me, I can’t remember where I saw it.

Also I had created a style in C3D2007 to display the pipes in profile as a single line. This was done by drawing the flow arrow in a non printable colour over the top of the pipe.In C3D2008 this is no longer possible. So now what?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Style Not Transferring Through XREF

Sep 10, 2013

It is a question about xrefing Civil 3D profile style.

The Civil 3D file has a profile view showing 4 profiles, and 4 different profile styles are used for the purpose of comparison. When xrefing this file, the profiles are not shown the way they are defined in the profile style. It seems their appearances are controlled by layer properties. I just wonder if it is possible to transfer profile style through XREF?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Band Style Setting?

Aug 26, 2013

In the Band Style_A pdf you can see the location of my elevation labels, they are below the bottom line of my profile view grid. In the Band Style_B pdf the labels are showing up in the proper location (above the bottom line of the profile view grid). To move the labels to the proper location I changed the "Gap" setting from 12.5 to -24. Is there a way to change this setting in my "style" rather than have to go make this change to the style every time I use it in a profile?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Editing Components Of Profile View?

Feb 27, 2013

Editing components of “profile view”,

In the case of horizontal alignment, one can choose any component and edits its properties (attached) such as its label height (attached).

I’m wondering why such option is not available in the case of “profile view”. The selected component doesn’t bring its edits option (as in the case of horizontal alignment”) and thus one can’t edit its properties like labels (attached).

Then how to edit the components of the “profile view”?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Band Title Text Style

Jul 2, 2013

Is there a way to make the Profile band title a specific text style?  At the moment it seems that when I access

Profile Properties>Pick Band Style>Profile Data Bans Style>Compose Label>Label style composer

I go to the Contents (under Text) and edit it to bring up the Text component Editor.

In this if I go to the Format Tab the text style is set to annotative, however under that it says font style as an overide. How do I remove the override and set the style of the text to the text style. And how do i change the text style.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Label Style - Design Road CL Profile

Apr 9, 2010

how to create a label style for design center of road (simple tangent) in profile that will work between multiple profile views. I've used the 'Create Multiple Views' profile view wizard. I use a horizontal dimension style label for CL road (looks just like an autocad linear dimension). I'd like the label work across separate views i.e. stop at view end, pick back up at view start.

The label I currently use is simply a line component from tangent start dimension to tangent end dimension and the text component is anchored to the line midpoint. Label looks as intended for normal use. For some reason the line drops as if looking for the actual pvi at the right side when i use multiple views.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Profile Style That Shows Invert Only?

Jun 14, 2012

I'm dealing with a city that based their drawings on LDD, and they chose to show pipes as just one line on a profile, representing the invert line.  In LDD, they pretty much left their pipe profiles as "draft profile" or whatever is used to be called.  Now I have to mimic their standard, using Civil 3D.  There isn't a handy-dandy style setting that I can find, to do this.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile View Style X Plan Production?

Jul 9, 2013

I'm working with plan production sheets and having some trouble. My vertical exaggeration makes me want to split the profile, but when I do it, they get glued together. My left vertical grid numeration stays on the middle of the grid and I get a lot of information overlapped. What I need is to put some gap between these, or split'em. Other issue is that the axis offset of my Profile Style isn't being applied, as well as other configs.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Projecting COGO Points To Profile - Style

May 17, 2012

I have projected Civil 3D COGO Points projected to a profile.  I simply want to display the Civil 3D Point Number for each point in the profile. 

In the Profile Projection Label Style, the only field in the text editor that displays this point number is the "Source Object Name.  This shows up as "CogoPoint 124" for point 124 (see attached).  How do I make this simply say the point number ONLY, i.e. "124"?

It would be nice to program the label style to display this field, yet delete the first 10 characters of "CogoPoint x", so it only says the point number, "x"

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Geometry Points Of Superimposed Profile To Alignment Label

Mar 1, 2013

I have an alignment label that I normally use to show the PVI's of a profile in the plan view.

This is a little unusual, but in a specific case I wanted to design my profile at one alignment, but show it at another.  I designed my swale profile in the pathway profile view and then superimposed the swale profile on the swale profile view.  I then went back to the swale alignment to add these labels.

It's a no-go AFAICT.  The only profile available for me to select for these labels is the original ground profile from the surface.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Base Structure Profile Label Location On Top Of Profile View

Nov 4, 2013

I'm working with a structure profile label style and it seems like the only way to anchor the position of the label is based on offsets from the structure itself... Any way to position the label based on the top of the profile view, so that I could make all of my labels horizontally aligned above the profile view?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Profile Bandsets With More Than 2 Profile / Surface Elevations Shown

Mar 14, 2013

Im creating a Profile Bandset and would like to have multiple surface/profile elevations shown, ie: EG, FG, Back of Curb and Back of walk. While creating this bandset I see that the text component editor properties only has code for profile 1 elevation and profile 2 elevation in the properties area, which the code for this looks like below.

<[Profile1 Elevation(Uft|P2|RN|Sn|OF|AP)]>
<[Profile2 Elevation(Uft|P3|RN|AP|Sn|OF)]>

Ive tried to write my own code using the profile 2 as an example but it doesnt seem to work as a 3rd surface/profile and only seems to mimic the profile 2 elevation when placed in the band

My questions are as follows

1) does Civil 3d only allow 2 surface elevations in any band set? if it does allow more profiles/surface elevations what am i missing to create it? 

2) if Civil 3d does alow for multiple surfaces to be shown in the band set how do i get the text component editor to supply the extra profile elevation codes? or would i need to create from scratch

3) if i need to write the code from scratch does any listing of the codes and meanings of each code ie what does RN, Uft, Sn and so forth do and mean .

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Created Profile From File But Cannot Create Profile Report

Jan 17, 2012

I am working C3D 2012.  I have a proposed alignment and profile design by another firm that I had to tranfer into C3D.    I had no problem getting the horizontal alignment to display from a text file.  I tried to do the same with the profile by using the 'create a text file and create the profile from file' command.  I got the POB, PI's, and POE to display.  I then defined the VC.  I wanted to verifiy that the profile was indeed accurate compared to what we were provided.  So I tried to execute a profile report PVI Station and Curve Report - I keep getting an error that "No FG profiles in dwg".

I know the Proposed profile is indeed set to proposed in the properties.  I have noticed that the icon next to the profile I create from the text file is different than the profiles created from scratch.

Is there a way to convert this profile to be recognized as a FG profile?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: No Profile Is Drawn In The Profile View - Update

Jul 24, 2012

I have yet to produce a profile. I created a polyline and turned it into an alignment.

Looking at alignment Sample(3), I see that it is not superimposed over your surface. The polylines are, but the alignment is not. That will disallow creation of a surface profile.

Is the sample5 an alignment that sits on the surface? how come there is still no profile?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Showing Profile Elevation Differences Right Above Profile 2

Jul 17, 2012

differences in elevations of points along Profile 2 (the proposed new road elevation) and Profile 1 (the existing elevation/surface) should be computed and shown right above the Profile 2 line. For example, if at a certain point PT 1 the elevation of the proposed road is 132.44 meters and the elevation of the existing surface is 132.45 meters, the difference is -0.01 meters and it should be shown exactly above the Profile 2 line (or a little bit above it) but not on it. The same should be done for every chosen point along the proposed profile.

So far, I have done this manually, by dragging the difference (already automatically computed and shown in one of the bands below the profiles) to the correct place for every single point. However, I don't know how to do this automatically.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Proposed Profile From Surface Profile

Mar 17, 2011

We have an engineer who is taking an existing surface and wants to show a proposed road 2" higher than existing.

I told him to simply adjust his assembly for his corridor to account for the 2" difference, but the County agency needs to see a profile.

My questions:

1) Is there a way to easily copy a profile made from a surface and "convert" it to a proposed profile?  If we copy and explode, it turns into hundreds (thousands?) of tiny pline segments and it would be a mess to convert all those to a profile 1 by 1.  If we make the corridor, and choose "profile from corridor", we do not have an option that could be used to represent the centerline. 

2) Other than loss of dynamic updating), would it make sense to adjust the assembly so the top surface would be accurate, then copy the profile, explode the copy to a block and simply shift that (as essentially basic linework)?

where to change the text height and color for the lower band where the stations are.  Also, how do I get the exist grade and proposed grade to show at the specified stations vertically like LDD used to do it.

Second, how do i mask the pipe in the manholes on the profile.  Right now i can see the pipe inside the manhole.  I clicked "enable masking" under the structure properties but no luck.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Profile Not Shown In Profile View

Nov 28, 2012

Attached are survey points that created the surface of a road embankment portion that caved-in. The road is very near a reservoir  shoreline. 

1. How can a surface profile be produce? I/'ve use line to change it into an alignement and then create a proile , then a profile view. But the the surface profile is missing. 

2.the points having higher elevation are the  top edge( road level) of the cave-n . A few few shots were take before the shorline elevations.

3. What the best way to come up with the rock volume to fill the cave-in given this surveying points., Also the shoreline elevation will be lowered some more while work is being done since the fill is not allowed to fall in the reservoir.
