I had a corridor built with a CulDeSac on a side access road. Problem I was running into was the daylighting from the assembly on curve so I finally decided that I needed to move the CulDeSac 20 feet further down the road. I deleted the CulDeSac region and when I did that the Final Grade for the EOPs profiles were deleted with it. I then moved the EOP alignments (Left & Right side) 20 feet further down the road and readjusted the start and ending of the alignments. Then went back to the existing grade profiles of the EOP alignments and redrew in the Final Grade profiles. I added back in the Regions for each Baseline and set the targets to Road CL Alignment and Final Grade Profile. These are the exact same steps I took originally to build the CulDeSac the first time and it worked great. Now it won't even build the CulDeSac.
When I deleted the region the FG of the EOP disappeared, but actually still showed in the Toolspace so the new FG profiles with same name were seconds/duplicates. Once I saw that I deleted the originals from Toospace and renamed the duplicates and used them for the Baselines.

I have 5 intersections in a drawing and i try to update all the intersections regions one after the other with "Update Regions and Rebuild Corridor". The problem is that sending up to date some intersections send other intersections (previously updated) out of date. So i cannot have all my intersections updated. The only way i found to correct this is to "Update regions automatically". but this way i cannot make changes to regions manually.
Copy a corridor successfully? I'd like to try this just a little worried about the explosion of evil this may cause to my Civil 3D session.
Even all the properties of the corridor setup from one to another would be useful. I'm building one corridor and an 2nd one that matches everything except I need to replace my Assembly with one meant for stripping.
My corridor surface is not matching my corridor top links. see attachments. this is affecting my volumes!
The section-plan(surface red).png is showing the section editor and the plan view. the red highlighted line in section is the corridor surface and as you can see in plan view the surface is incorrect and wiggly.
The pdf is all my sections with the red linework being the corridor surface.
I would like to add a Rebuild Surface command to my Ribbon Modify Panel. I would also like to have it included in my Right Click menu after a surface is selected. There doesn't appear to be any way to initiate a surface rebuild from the command line and I don't find a command for it in the CUI editor.
There does seem to be a rebuild command in the API but I am not a programmer. Is this possible without programming?
2012. I have contours from a corridor merged into a full surface. I labeled the contours, then had to rebuild the corridor after the profile changed.
The contour labels all vanished and had to be redone. While surface contours work well for roadway corridors with few intersecting roads. I am not finding them to be useful for parking lots. I am thinking I will have to go back to the extract all contours from model and neaten them up for acceptable graphic presentation, then label them using the label line function and pray they don't change. i.e. old LDD work flow.
The automatic outside boundary also does not work well when updating parameters and rebuilding. The old fashioned LDD boundary from polyline seems to work better most of the time.
I have some code that edits the breaklines of a surface. Everything works correctly, except for the surface rebuild when finished.At the end of the command I use:
But when the command completes I still need to manually rebuild the surface to see the result of my command's edits. This is in both 2013 & 2014. I shouldn't need to do this and was just wondering why the Rebuild() method doesn't always work.
Also, is it possible to toggle the Automatic Rebuild option for surfaces in code?
I have had numerous problems trying to print from 2014 using the setting "Visible portion of current window". This feature was never that good, anyway, but now it seems to be WAY worse. I'm spending 5-10 minutes to just send something to the printer that should only take 5 seconds.
See the attached images of what I see on screen, the print dialog boxes and then what I actually get. The "Center" option doesn't function properly and now I must manually adjust the margins to print what I see on the screen.
I am wanting to use pressure pipes for force main. If you do how do you add an air release manhole? I tried to use an appurtenance part as an air release manhole. If I set the plan display to use a block it skews the block. For the appurtenance part I do not see that the pipe inverts are available for the pipe label. I thought pressure pipes would be for water mains and force mains. So, I am wondering what others do for Force main Pipes?
CS6 Thinks It Has an Unsaved Document Open But it doesn't. Yesterday I did some testing that resulted in a Photoshop crash that was likely due to a bad font. I restarted Photoshop several times after that and did some testing, then just left Photoshop minimized all night.
Today I went to close Photoshop and got an indication that it thinks a PSB document is open, with the same name as the PSD file I was testing with yesterday when Ps crashed.
I assume this may be somehow related to the AutoSave feature, but the file never opened upon restarting Photoshop.
I am working on a complex industrial site. And I would like a constant grade of 3.00% from my road intersections to the edge of curves. I know if I used a corridor, I'd be able to tell the grading to project ot the edge of the road/curve.
I'm just wondering if I can tell a grading object to project to a polyline or feature line along a intersection curve? There are many reasons as to why I'm not using corridors for this project, but I don't want to get into that.
I am trying to model a force main with several vertical and horizontal bends. Getting the network set up and drawing in the pipe segments with the styles is a sinch, what I am having trouble with is modelling the horiz and vert bends to show up both in plan and profile view. I have done many sany and storm profiles but this is a first time with a force main. Does Civil 3d have the capability of modelling these or is this more of an MEP type task?
I have a very basic question about creating corridors. As you can see on the attachment, i created an assembly consisting of ditch and my own polyline subassembly and turned it into a corridor. The ditch part is drawn out correctly, but the other part (supposed to be a gravel road) has only sections in certain points.
I started playing around with 3d dwf's. I'd like to share my corridors in a 3d dwf viewer or something similar but when it opens in design review, everything is skewed/ jagged/garbled. The other problem is that it exports everything (assemblies, alignments, sections etc.) so it make viewing navigation difficult in the viewer for people that aren't CAD savvy to begin with. It would be ideal if you could select what you want to export similar to exporting a wmf file.
How do others share 3d models with non-cad people?
We are trying to edit a small portion of an existing corridor by adding a generic daylighting subassembly. The add subassembly tool in the Corridor Section editor works, but we get an error because the new sub doesn't have a target surface specified. how to add a target for a sub that is added after the corridor was created?

When creating an alignment from corridor feature (ditch invert level), the created alignment is not following the selected line (see image bellow). The alignment seams to be created from the first point of the feature line to the last point and ignores all the other points. The vertical alignment created at the same time seams to be correct.
I am trying desperately to create a corridor in C3D 2013.
I have the requisite Alignment, Profile and Assembly, yet when I create the corridor, either nothing appears, or it creates the corridor at incorrect elevations. I have the proper elevations in my alignment.
I had a grading plan all set, with a corridor involved. Then, I received a new survey that I didn't know was coming. I need to move all of my elements to different coordinates. I can move everything except the corridor.
I only get 2 choices when selecting corridor feature line to create profile - ETW_base, and ETW_sub. My Subassembly has 2 pavement sections, a base and subbase section. I need the top of pavement profile.
