AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Blocks And Description Keys?

Mar 15, 2012

I am trying to set up our templete and I am having issues.  I have set up description keys and such. When I import our survey data all comes in (ie blocks and linework). The problem is when I try to plot the block that are inserted on what appears to be the correct layer they do not plot out.  When I freeze the point layer the block disappears as well. What setting am I missing that will create the blocks according to the description key and keep them on a separate layer like it did in Land Desktop but keep them dynamic? I am not sure if the subscription service covers.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Apply Default Style To Points Not In Description Keys?

Sep 23, 2013

Can I apply a default style to points with a raw description not in the description key sets?

When I import survey points into the drawing my description keys will assign specifed styles (and therefore layers) to descriptions it recognises, and a default style (and layer) to ones it does not recognise.

Then if i change raw descriptions in the drawing I can "Apply description keys" and have the styles and layers change based on the changes I made to the raw description. This is fine for descriptions in the key set.

Can I get Civil3D to apply the default style to points that did have a description that is in the DKS but has now been changed to one that is not? As it works for me now, these points remain unchanged in there layer and style.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Points / Symbols / Point Styles And Description Keys

Nov 26, 2013

C3D 2012 SP4
Win7 Pro

 I want my survey symbols to come in on their own layers, separate from the point label. Lets use UPOL as an example: I have a point style UPOL*.  It has assigned to it a block representing the utility pole.The size is set to drawing units, and sized to .1 inches.

                                               The marker is on layer: V-NODE-POLE-SYMB

                                               The label is on layer: V-NODE-POLE

The description key is as follows.  UPOL*

                                                        Style: UPOL*

                                                        Point Label Style: Standard

                                                        Layer: V-NODE-POLE-SYMB

No other parameters have been choosen; scale parameter, fixed scale, or use drawing scale.

Have I done this correctly, to accomplish my task?  I also noticed that I cannot turn the point label off by picking it.  I have to turn the layer off in the layer manager.Should I use the description keys to scale the symbol, instead of the point style?

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 :: 2012 Point Labels Are Too Big In Viewport?

May 28, 2013

While using AutoCAD 2008 LDD, I was able to set my point label size so that it looked the same in Model Space and Paper Space. I have my Model Space at 1:1, and my Paper Space Viewport set at the Scale Factor as needed, 1" = 50' i.e.. I now am using Civil 3D 2012 and have a decent grasp of Point Label Styles, the problem I am having is that when using the same parameters as mentioned before, my Point Label is at the right size in Model Space, setting the height at a size comparable to the Drawing Scale, such that if the Drawing Scale within the Viewport was 1" = 60', I would set the text size 4.8, but when doing this, it makes my Point Label text size huge.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Geometry Point Labels - Text Style

Jan 21, 2013

I am in the process of modifying our current company standards to conform to another set of standards. The main change is switching from "simplex" font style to "Tahoma".

Simple in theory but problematic in execution, our main alignment label style "GEO-LABL", used for P.O.T, PC, ect. utilizes an underlined reference text object in order to control the length of the line under the call. The base insertion places the call perpendicular to the alignment, when dragged to the left or right it switches to stacked text plan readable. Works like a champ with the "simplex" text style - 1.jpg see attached.

Now simply changing the font to "Tahoma" - 2.jpg the larger you make the text the larger the gap.I am trying to stay away from adding a line for the underline due to the difference in lengths needed when the call gets longer or shorter based on alignment name or stationing.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Description Keys Settings

May 5, 2012

For some reason in my base template for field work the "Disable Description Keys" option in Points  Creation is set to "true"

How can make this default to "False" in my template. I've tried changing it and then saving the template again but it reverts to true all of the time. I have to select my points and do apply desc keys whenever I import points.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Blocks For Description Keys

Jan 10, 2013

Civil 3D Newbie here.

I am making a directory full of the blocks we will use for the description key file to use. My understanding is that all of these blocks (manholes, hydrants, trees...etc) should be on layer "0" and of standard size. Manholes should be about 3' in diameter, transformer pads around 4' square....etc. Essentially, 1 = 1 true scale.

Is this true?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Using Description Keys With Linework?

Jul 18, 2013

I currently use Leica Viva Smartworks for surveying and it captures the linework codes in its own field, so when I export my CSV file my Descrition comes on with the feature code but the linework code is another field. Is their a way that using the Format field in the description Key that I can get the Full description field to read something like "V-DOMW-PIPE B", which would pull the feature code from the raw descrition field and the begin line code from the Linework field.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Description Keys With Number

Jun 13, 2012

Creating a format to keep a number following a code.

My code is BCCD#

My format is DFL CC $+

My result now is:

Raw Desc.  BCCD1 B  (Bottom of Concrete Ditch)

Full Desc. DFL B CC  (Ditch Flow Line and Type)

I am attempting to create a key that will create the following full description from the raw description:

Raw Desc.  BCCD1 B  (Bottom of Concrete Ditch)

Full Desc. DFL1 CC  B (Ditch Flow Line and Type)

The reason that I need to change the description is to comply with certain standard codes from an outside entity but I do not wish to change the filed coding that we use in house.  I cannot seem to find a parameter that would allow me to keep the number behind the DFL descriptor

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Description Keys - Rotate Label

Aug 16, 2013

I am hoping to bring my spot shots labels in at a 45 degree angle. I have created this Desc Key Set. For some reason the points are still coming in like this.

I double checked my label style, it is set to object. I double checked the properties where it shows rotation it says property not set. I also tried to use the rotation set to parameter 1 and assigned the point a parameter 1 at 45 D with no success.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Copying Description Keys-Parent Control?

Dec 5, 2012

I was told that once I set up a description key that I could copy it to save time, especially on DS Keys that have blocks associated with them. Unfortunately this isn't working.

I tried copying the basic DS Key - SWMH* (I right clicked the SWMH* (code) to make a copy of it. I renamed it and, used a different block, changed the layers to zero and saved it as SSMH. I saved it, then it proceeded to change all the characteristics of the SWMH to match the SSMH.

Is there some setting that I'm missing? Is there some parent/child association that I'm missing? I know that I can proceed to create each DS key from scratch but prefer not to.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Description Gets Truncated?

Nov 28, 2012

In LDDT 2009, I was able to describe points like this: STK #32

But in Civil 3D 2013, whenever I use the # symbol, the description gets truncated.  So, using the point description above, it will show up in Civil 3D 2013 as STK rather than STK #32.

Is this a setting or something that I can switch on so that the I can use symbols such as # and - in my point description?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Freeze Point Number And Description

Dec 4, 2012

I just received a drawing with a bunch of points in it. One of the layer is called V-ROAD-CNTR-PNTS. Unfortunately, the point number, description, and elevation are all in that same layer. How do I keep just the elevation turned on but turn off the point description and number? When I turn off or freeze the layer V-ROAD-CNTR-PTNS, all three disappear. I just need the elevation showing.

Attached is an image of my screen.

When importing an event, my point descriptions are cutoff at 16 characters.

Is there any setting to increase this?

If I have Microsoft Access installed on my computer, can one easily modify the table?

If you can modify the table using Access, can you define a default DB or would I have to redefine the string length within a table everytime I create a DB thru Civil 3D GUI?

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 :: Band Style In Profiles - Staggering Labels?
