I've attached an image of some corridor issues.I've looked at the corridor properties, profile targets, and eg surface and everything checks out. So why would the corridor place a void in the daylight of the back slope of the new ditch?
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.
Is there a way I can fill the gaps in this surface? The surface is a combination of four pasted surfaces with boundaries set so they dont overlap on each other and create a mess.. I can't have these holes/slivers in it because SiteVision wont accept it. So basically is there a command that will fill the gaps in for me?
I'm working with an area around a couple miles of road running SW to NE. I have metric lidar tiles in GeoTiff format. The tiles are 1,500 meters on an edge. I'm working in US Survey feet.
I originally tried creating a Surface of all 9 tiles I needed and then cropped the resultant Surface. But that was too large for my computer to handle. So I created 9 drawing each with one tile Surface in it. Now I've created a Data shortcut Reference for them all in one drawing. I got all the Surfaces in but noticed that there were gaps between the borders.
I was wondering if it was a coordinate system conversion problem. But all the settings check out. Now I think that this may be an expected behavior. I measured the gaps between the Borders and found that they all ran very close to 6.56'. In metric that's almost exactly 2 meters. 2 m is the separation of points in the Lidar surface.
BTW I'm working this in 2014.

I am trying to create a surface using the grading tool. I have a known top and a designed floor. I extended the floor surface out to meet the top breakline. I then use the grading tool to run a 3:1 down to the pond floor so I know where the true breakline is, but there is almost always a gap or two in my surface. It is usually less than a foot, but it has made my OCD kick in and I am going crazy trying to figure it out. I've traced of the breaklines, and the contours and added them to the surface to try and fix it, but that doesn't seem to work.
why I would get gaps in my grading from a single feature line? The feature line is at the same elevation all the way around and I am trying to grade to my existing surface at a 1:1 slope. No matter what I do it continues to leave out portions of the grading. I have attached a 3d image showing what's going on.
I have received some sedimentary data of a seabed. I also have other geological layers the sit beneath (all in XYZ format). I have created point clouds using this data and would like to create a surface in order to use the elevational banding to represent thickness. Here lies the problem.
When creating a surface from the point cloud (whole extent), C3D seems to fill in gaps in the data. Is there a way that C3D can create a true representation without all the lines joining parts up? I know that I can edit the surface by deleting lines but this is very time consuming and I'm wondering if there is an easier way to do this. This problem isn't exclusive to point clouds either, as it does the same when adding points to a new surface.
I have attached a couple of screenshots. The first shows a Point Cloud with colours showing the desired effect. Unfortunately C3D doesn't allow me to print this. The second image shows how the surface looks when created.
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.
I have sevreal corridors with various spurs. The contractor wants the cut/fill volume in sections along the corridors, not one big cut/fill calc. Is there a way to do this in C3D? I have got the volume table with the chainages on, but he does not want a cumulitive figure for the whole corridor.
I am trying to create a surface from a corridor. I have a sub-assembly attached, which I believe is working correctly. I managed to create the empty surface and when I try to add surface data nothing seems to happen. I keep changing the specified code to Base which is my finished gravel structure and hit the + but again nothing seems to happen.
Ultimately I am trying to determine a volume between my corridor and original topo.
I need to design a project but ı cant..ı have two profiles in use for one alignment..ı want to use left profile for left side, use right profile for right side.and ı want to draw cross section only one..how can ı design like this project..
We have created sections from our corridor. We see FG and EG, we can use bands for EG from surface. How do we get the FG band to show the elevations for FG? The only option we have is the EG surface. We have tried to create a surface form the corridor in the corridor properties but that surface still doesn't show up in the surface list in the bands. I would have thought this info would be dynamic and come directly from the corridor would it not?
Why is my corridor adding a hinge? [Atleast I think that is the problem]
I am trying to create a berm that is 8' wide. For my assembly I used 4' wide basiclanes and daylightgeneral (with 3:1 slope in all parameters) on left and right side.
In the top image I have circled two of the areas in which the hinge line is shown. And in the bottom right the cross section of one side of the berm is shown. As you can see on the inside (left) there is two feet sloped at approximately -1% before it daylights to the surface at 3:1
I want use my corridor where I need it and not use one in certain areas. For a proposed dike. Some places doesn't need to be replace. So I need a way to use my section on the alignment. where I can find that option?
I am having some issues with my corridor. It is for a 1.5 mile two lane section of highway. When I created the corridor, I used 15 assemblies. Now, when I try to create a corridor surface, I have issues. The file crashes when I try to load the surface.
