AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Existing Ground And Design Profile - Label Slopes

Dec 15, 2008

I have an existing ground profile, and a design profile. All I want to do is label the slopes of the design. When I click my line label style and turn on the text it labels the existing ground and the design ground. I cannot find the setting in my two profile styles to turn the slopes off in the existing ground.

Oh, how can I get a tick on the V.C. dimension line?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Labeling Centerline Existing Ground & Profile Grade Elevations?

Mar 28, 2012

I am trying to label existing ground & profile grade on my cross-sections the way old Land 4 used to do it.  I've muddled through section view property style settings, band settings, group properties w/no luck.  It can't possible be this difficult.  What am I missing?

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 :: 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 :: Create A Label For Slopes In Cross Sections For Surface

Apr 30, 2012

I am trying to create a label for slopes in cross sections for a surface created from breaklines using gade breaks as you can not weed segment labels

I am weeding the labels out based on the change in grade of the section profile and making the label text high very small of the labels I do not want to see. But the first label returns ??? because there  is no grade coming in so I get ??? instead of something usefull like null. Any way to convert?? to something you can evaluate and use.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Existing Ground Surface And Data Shortcuts?

Mar 27, 2012

I have a rather large project for a roadway reconstruction.  Therefore, the existing utilities are in a separate drawing and the existing ground surface model is in a separate drawing.  All the above surface items (curb and gutter, asphalt, concrete, signs, sidewalks, landscaping, etc..) are in the master drawing.  I then xref'd in my utility drawing and though I would use data shortcuts for my existing ground surface drawing.  I took the surveyed triangles (3d faces) from our raw survey drawing and copied them into my surface drawing, created a surface from the triangles, created a boundary and such.  So far everything is good.  I created the working folder for the data shortcuts for this project and saved the drawing and closed it.  I went into my master drawing and clicked on "Create Reference".  I did not promote.  The reference came though and everything is fine.  Now I want to add contour labels in my surface drawing which I did but they do not show up in my master drawing but the contours themselves do.  Do I have to promote this drawing into my master drawing so I can create the contour labels in my master drawing?  I guess that is fine but the issue is we have small areas of topo that will be added as needed down the road.  If I promote the surface drawing into my master drawing then when I add topo to the surface drawing, it wont update in my master drawing.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Existing Ground Not Shown In Corridor Section Editor

Jul 7, 2011

I've worked with LDD for 11 yrs. Last week the IT guys changed my PC to Windows 7 64bit, so I can't have LDD and I have to work with C3D. so I am following software tutorials.

for designing a road I created:

alignment ---> surface profile ---> layout profile (project line) ---> assembly ---> subassemblies ---> corridor ---> set target surface and frequencies

Corridor is created with daylights ,but I don't see existing ground in corridor section editor.

There is nothing about this in tutorial. Also I don't know how to calculate the volumes, in LDD after this stage we could calculate the volumes. i think in C3D I should do more for calculation.

I need to extend the existing ground profile. I previously had stopped the profile at 25+00 as shown in the attached. However, I need to add on another 100' to 26+00. I can only view info in the Profile Properties. I can't change the end station.

How do I get it to extend?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Mask Out A Portion Of Ground Line Profile

Feb 7, 2013

I have cut a ground line in profile view.  Is there a way to "mask out" a portion of the ground line in the profile?  I need to detail some stair but the surveyors only shot the top and bottom tread.  I don't want to add points to the surface, I just want to draw the steps in and place them in the correct profile location.  And I don't want two horizontal alignments.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Changing Profile Line Label Style Causes Label String To Revert To Default

Sep 6, 2012

C3D 2013. We have profile line labels, some of which get manually edited (for example, change the "<[Tangent grade(FP|P2|RN|AP|GC|UN|SD|OF)]>" to a static number such as 0.29%).

However, if you CTRL+Click and select one of these labels and change the style of that one label, then the manual edits are lost and the label reverts back to the default string.

Is there any way to turn this behavior off?

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

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 :: Adding Profile To Existing Profile Views

May 10, 2013

I have 3 profiles that I've superimposed together.  Then I created sheets using the superimposed profile.  I used the wizard and had Civil 3d do it for me (2012).  Now I have to add a 4th profile to the mix and get it to show in my profile views that have already been cut.  The data is shortcut into the drawing with my cut profiles views.  How do I get it to be in the cut profile views without re cutting everything?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Label - Equations?

Nov 14, 2011

I am using Civil 3D 2009 version 4.

I have designed a railroad yard that the construction plans require all grading to be to centerline of rail (0.5 feet under the ties) and my profiles are required to be to the top of rail (1.3 feet above the centerline elevation). Since I already have the grading surface done I was hoping there was a way to target my grading surface and add the 1.3 feet to the elevation in the label. Is that passable?

Using the stock 'Elevations and Stations' style I targeted the existing ground for profile 1 and the finished ground for profile 2. Then I tried using the language you enter at the command line to do math in the label (+ 1.3 <[Profile2 Elevation(Uft|P2|RN|AP|Sn|OF)]>) but that only generated a label that read "(+ 1.3 242.00)" instead of the "243.30" that I need for the loading area, for example.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Design Profile PVIs Disappearing?

Dec 15, 2013

Working in Civil 3D 2014 SP1 I have a Design Profile that I have created by setting the Existing Profile to 'Static' and Creating a Copy of the Existing Profile... This leaves me with a Design Profile that follows the Existing Surface. The problem begins when I delete a section of PVI's and introduce new 'Design PVI's'... I have found that at apparently random times my Design PVI's have been lost and replaced with the original copied PVI's that follow the Existing Surface. This has occurred more than once and I can't find any reason as to why this may be occurring...?

Currently using Civil 3D 2013 & 2014 SP1

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Elevation In Alignment Label

Sep 25, 2012

I need to know how to display a proposed profile elevation in the major station alignment label, I mean, for example, I want to read in the label "0+000, 494.444". I've already edited my major station label style adding a (profile type) Reference text, and it only displays "?". I suppose I need to associate it with the correct profile, but I've not figured out how to. I show you how the label looks in the attached image.
