AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Surface From Existing Points?

Jun 11, 2013

I have been given a survey on AutoCAD which was orginally 2D with the levels written in text next to it. I changed each point (690) to include the level in the Z-direction. I am trying to calculate volumes of topsoil removal and then cut anf fill volumes. 

So I opened up Civil3D in metric template and imported my drawing as I have not been given a ddata file with the co-ordinates. Unfortunately I am having trouble creating a surface between the existing points.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating A Surface From Existing Points?

Jan 16, 2013

I am having some trouble creating a TIN from a point layer in Civil 3D 2011. Would the best course of action be to extract the points from the drawing and creating a surface from there, or is there a way to create the TIN around the existing points in Model space?

I'm much better versed in AutoCAD, but excited about furthering my understanding with Civil3D.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Combining New Survey Points Into An Existing Surface

Aug 28, 2013

Every week I recieve new survey data (typically around 20 points) to insert onto an existing surface of our local landfill.

The surface is displayed as minor and major contours.  The new survey data typically always has higher elevations then the exist surface and shot roughly 2 meters apart.

Here's my issue...when the survey data is inserted and the surface is rebuilt, the contours seem to turn into little cones at each new point.  see attached...

how to eliminate these 'cones' so the surface contours seem more relistic?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Blocks From Cogo Points?

Feb 11, 2013

We are in the middle of upgrading from LDD2008 to Civil3D2013. This is a 2 part question. Since there are NO point labels similar to Poiint labels in LDD2008. It is making cleaning the elevations up very teadious. With point labels that are just Mtext. I would rotate 1 label and then match properties to rotate the rest and then jiust more the elevations to make them readable.

How do you all deal with cleaning up the elevations?  Is there a way to match proprties as far as the rotatiion of the points? or do you Create blocks from Cogo points?

So, I starting playing with the Creating Blocks from Cogo Points. This creates a block with attributes similar to the way Softdesk treated points back in the day. I ran into a couple of issues. 1 being, it rounds the elevation to 3 decimals places.

When it creates blocks from the Cogo Points some of the blocks are giving me 0.000 elevations for points that had actual elevations.

This is a fantastic option, but I have a problem the whole drawing is rounded to two decimal places.

But when I execute create block from Cogo points he round heights on all points to three decimal places,where the third decimal is 0.

Example height is H =198.36 after H=198.360.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Blocks Don't Show When Importing Points?

Jul 11, 2013

Our Surveyor created the Point Styles and description keys for processing our field work. These were incorporated in our template. Yesterday he brought in field work an noticed that only a few of the symbols incorporated into the markers came in.

The blocks exist in the drawing but when you go to edit the point marker only 8 out of 152 blocks show in the window below "Use AutoCAD BLOCK symbol for marker". I tried a backup of that template from 5 months ago and got the same results. I've verified that the blocks still exist in the drawing both by listing them and exploring them in Design Center. If I try other templates the window shows all the blocks.

I have tried Audit and Recover with no improvement. Thirteen errors fixed but the blocks still don't show. Additionally I found a backup of the template from Feb., 2013 and get the same problem but the lack of blocks only just occurred.

This is an example showing the depleted block list:

AutoCAD 2013 :: Marker Can't Select Points On A Line

Nov 8, 2012

When I try to use the move tool and hover over an object, the marker tool bounces around and has trouble finding the selection point. When I zoom in close to get the exact point on a line - it doesn't select anything, so I can't actually move an object.

I've tried adjusting the object snap settings however this doesn't seem to be working.

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: (Section) Cut Marker With ATTDEF - Can't Move Ends Independently

May 25, 2012

I've got a section marker (the letter designation with arrowheads pointing in the direction of the cut) that I cannot get to behave correctly.

When I set a parameter to one end with a move action, in order to have the arrowhead and attdef for the letter designation move upwards, all is well. When I try to do the same to the other end, the letter desingation attdef will not move.

Neither attdef is set to "Lock Position", so I'm puzzled why one works and the other end does not. I've tried a move action on both ends and a combination of move/stretch, but I can't get it to work.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create All New Existing Surface Over Existing Ground

Sep 28, 2012

I'm trying to create an all new existing surface over existing ground. I have a TIN surface of the EG, and I have drawn overlay splines that describe the new surface, but how to go about creating that design surface.

It is a compound surface, open on one end and closed all around on the other, somewhat like a half of a football stadium, but with an irregular upper edge because I am needing to figure out cuts and fills to manipulate the EG into this new surface without costly major terraforming. There is about 40-50' vertical elevation between the "field" and the upper rim with a generally constant 7-10 deg. slope all around. I'm just at a loss to figure out how to approach this project, and am quite new to Civil 3D.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Marker Won't Run Off

Mar 12, 2012

I'm using Civil 3D 2012 and I'm having a hard time to turn off a maker that I didn't recognize in 2011.  While having all my Osnap tools turned off, I will make a Fillet between 2 polylines, but an automatic yellow marker keeps poping up on the screen (See PDF attachement).

Is there anyway to turn the yellow marker off?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Marker Style

Mar 18, 2013

I believe I've found a bug with marker styles. I found this while editing a profile style. Under my profile style I have the Point of Vertical Intersection set to PI Point for the marker style. 

Here is the screenshot of the marker style for the plan view.

Here is the screenshot of the marker style for the profile view with part of my profile shown next to it. Notice how the marker color is different in the profile than what it's set to. It's also not changing layers. It seems that the profile setting for the marker style display doesn't actually work. It takes the settings for the plan view and ignores the profile display style.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Gap Distance From Marker

Apr 25, 2013

I read all of the posts I could on point gaps and know how to make the leader reach for the center of the point. What I want is for the leader to actually attach to the block of the style I have created. Is this possible, or do I need to find a new way to label of these points so that the leader touches the block. Also I noticed the gap is not consistent from point to point.

I am using civil 3d 2011 with the latest service pack.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Changing Individual Marker Sizes?

I am trying to change the sizes of markers individually. When I change the marker of one, it changes for all of them. I think this has to do with the point groups. I am able to add all points to a new group  but I cant specify which markers i want in that group.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Marker Style Not Work If X And Y Scale Different

I created 3 marker styles to be used be applied as markers within 3 figure styles, but using the same block for all 3 marker styles. The size of the marker styles is set to "Use fixed scale" and all have a Y and Z scale of 1 but different X values. Unfortunately it seems that if the X and Y values are different the marker will not show up on the figure.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Wrong Linetype For Point Marker?

Aug 14, 2013

I have my layer set up as dashed linetype for lines. My point style marker is set up as continuous linetype. When I import the survey file it automatically draws the lines correctly, inserts the correct marker, and places them on the correct layer. But the marker is dashed as well and not continuous. Is something overriding this setting?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Get Point Marker With Attributed Block

Jan 24, 2013

How do you get a point marker that uses a block with attributes to show the attributed text?

We are using tree symbols that have the size of the tree as an attribute, but when the points that use that block come in...the block shows up w/out any attributed text. Tried to edit the "block" or point marker with attedit command, but C3D tells me it is not a block. Understand that it is a "marker" for the point. But, what is stopping the text size of tree from showing up?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Reduce Marker And Label Sizes

Sep 9, 2013

On the Marker Tab of my point style, I set the Marker Size to 0.05".

Then on the Summary Tab, under the Marker Node, the Point Marker Size shows 0.004". If I change that to 0.05, like I have it on the Marker Tab, the point marker becomes huge. Why aren't these two settings the same?

Another question. When I reduce the Marker and Label sizes, the label doesn't "suck in" to the marker. How can I bring the label closer to the marker without dragging it?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Large Surface - Converting Points To Cogo Points

Mar 5, 2013

I have a large surface (over 1.5 million points and 20 000hectares)

I need to get a point file .csv from the TIN to be able to use it in another program.

-so i've extracted the points from my surface, but they are Autocad points.

-next step is to convert them to civil 3d points.

-I can not select them all when converting them or my computer crashes.

-so i select about 25 000 at a time, the converting takes roughly 10 minutes.

and i have over 1.5 million points to do.

how can i speed this up.

will more ram useful?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2013 Point Marker Rotate Grip?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create A Marker Label That Displays The Point Name

Jun 21, 2013

Essentially, what I am looking for is the easiest way to label control lines and right-of-way lines in section view. In the past, I have used profile grade lines to do this - with a customized Marker Style for each alignment. On projects with 40+ alignments, this leads to a lot of blocks and marker styles to wade through. What I'd like to know - Is there a way to display a point name (read from a MarkedPoint) in section view using marker labels? Here's how I see it working (theoretically):

Define the following two point codes for use in my Code Set Styles: ALGN and ROW. Each would be assigned a Marker Label Style (let's call them A & R) in the Code Set. I'd like this label to display the point name in section view. For example, I'd like to insert a marked point on the centre line; Point Code = ALGN, Point Name = L100. However it doesn't seem that the Marker Label can read the "Point Name" field. Am I missing something really simple, or is this just not doable?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: CSV File Import Into Drawing - Marker Styles

Apr 7, 2013

I import a csv file into my drawing and all the points and figures get drawn correct and on the correct layers.

But I end up getting some extra things also:

1. a little white circle comes in from the marker styles.  it comes in on layer V-SURV-NTWK

2. i also get an extra white line that comes in on layer 0.

I have stopped these things from happening now by hitting the light bulb for the "basic" Marker Style and the "basic" Feature Line Styles.  But i would really like to know what the Marker Style and Feature Line Styles are and what they are there for.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Designating Points As Control Points
