AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Gravity Pipe Crossing Doesn't Show Up In Profile
Dec 6, 2013
I have a typical storm sewer pipe network in a drawing by itself with an alignment. I data referenced both of these into another drawing. I draw the pipe network in the profile view I created and the pipes that run with the road show up fine. Every once in awhile there is a lateral storm sewer pipe that runs across the road. When I draw these in the profile view they show up, but, only the pipes that are skewed to the alignment show up. If the pipe is perfectly perpendicular to the alignment it does not show up. I have two styles setup. One main one that shows the inner and outer pipe walls and another one for overrides for the crossing pipes and that stlye has crossing pipe walls turned on.
Why is it though only the skewed pipes show up as ellipses in my profile view but the perpendicular pipes do not?
Problems with masked crossing pipe in the profile view? So basically I want to show a manhole with three pipes attached in the profile view and I use style override for pipes in a profile view to show crossing pipe, but crossing pipe gets masked with "Enable part masking" option in the Structure style. So I either can show crossing pipe and projected pipes drafted to center of the structure, or I can see only projected pipes drafted to the structure outer walls, but cannot see crossing pipe.
I would like to see projected (incoming) pipes drafted to the structure outer wall, and crossing pipes. Is that possible? See figure attached.
I have a drawing with a couple of profiles and some pipe networks. One alignment is collinear with the pipe network and another crosses the networks. I want to show the pipe crossing as well as the longitudinal on it companion alignment. If I set the profile setting for the pipe display to show the pipes crossing I don't get the longitudinal and if I try to assign the different style to the crossing pipes the plan view disappears. So, how should I set my styles to get a crossing pipe and a longitudinal in the same file?
I cannot find a way to only have pipes in profile view to only show the invert (bottom) of the pipe. All my pipes are running around the same elevation and the profile is pretty busy with both invert and crown of pipe shown.
I've been having a problem with a pipe structure not showing up in a profile view. I have a single pipe network with everything (pipes and other structures) showing up in the profile when I select them, right-click, and click on "Draw Parts in Profile". Like I said, this works for all the other pipes and structures in the profile except one. When I select the structure individually and try to draw it into the profile, it still won't work. A friend told me to make sure that the structure is within the surface, and it is.
My boss has designed a gravity project that has 21" PVC. Civil 3D 2010 only has 20" PVC, not 21". He basically said 21" PVC exists (JM Eagle) so make it happen. So how exactly can I add a new size to the Parts Catalog under PVC?

i've got proposed stormwater pipes crossing existing utility pipes. my proposed stormwater pipes run parallel to but offset from my road centerline alignment. i want to show the existing utility pipe as an oval where it crosses my stormwater pipe. i can get the utility to show up in the profile at the centerline alignment of my road but not at the actual point where the pipes cross. is there a way to show this?

I created this label for my pipe crossing. I want to be able to start the vertical line at the invert, and be able to move the text up and down and have the line adjust.
Currently my dragged state has the arrow head size as 0 and visibility as false, since it starts the leader at the centerline of the pipe. But without using the leader, I cannot adjust the vertical line dynamically.
I need to project a crossing pipe onto a road centerline. I have water running down one side of the road 7' off the centerline of the road and sewer running down the other 8' off the centerline. There is storm drain running perpendicular across the road.
The sewer and the water are projected onto the centerline of road profile. When I draw the crossing pipes in that profile view and change the override, because it does not cross the centerline, it disappears from the profile view. How can I accurately show the crossing at the proper invert of the respective crossing without drawing the ellipses manually?
I have two pipe networks and two profile views, one for storm and another for sanitary. I would like to show the crossing pipes on each of the profile views. When I select the profile view, add a pipe and change the style to crossing the style is change to crossing on the other profile view (ex. on sanitary profile view I set storm pipe 3 to crossing style, on the storm profile pipe 3 changes to crossing style and does not display). Isn't there a way to display the styles for pipes different in each profile view?
I have a storm crossing shown on a road profile, and the ellipse that represents the storm pipe is only showing part of the inner wall (I've attached an image). This pipe is skewed slightly, but the entire pipe crosses the road alignment, and this should not make any difference.
Also, is there any way, yet, (I'm using C3D 2011) to have the label show not only the pipe name, but also the invert where the pipe crosses the road alignment, and remain dynamic,? In other words, without having to edit the label text, and lose the dynamic capability. Land Desktop would do this, but it was not dynamic, of course.
My colleague added parallel pipe networks and crossings to multiple SD profile views yesterday. Today, he came in, turned on AutoCAD, opened the drawing, and the parallel pipes and crossings were gone. The working folder had reset itself to nowhere so we reset the working folder and Data Shortcuts Folder, but that didn't bring them back. We can go into the profile view properties<pipe networks tab and turn the pipes and structures back on and override the styles, but that is basically redoing everything we did yesterday. Is there a way to avoid having to redo everything? Is there a way to avoid this from happening in the first place?
Trying to make some changes to improve reading. The pipes are going to center of structure and would like to change the appearance but maintain the lenght to the center or in last case to the structure wall.
The image explains the 'problem'. Red line should be the correct appearance
I'm trying to create a profile of a pipe. I have elevation data for the pipe and natural ground I've created a surface from the natural ground then I created and alignment. Next I created a profile when the profile was completed I got broken lines and spikes for my pipe not a polyline that followed the natural ground. I'm at a loss as to how I could fix this and I'm very new to AutoCADD I'm a GIS person.
I draw 2 pipe profiles, who are crossing eachother. When i want to draw crossing pipe in one profile (IN PIPE NETWORKS), that pipe erased in the profile. What is the problem. I want to be seen crossing pipes in both profiles. In red color I draw a pipe which is missing.
I created a colorchecker passport profile for my new OMD EM1 camera and it doesn't show up in the list of camera profiles. At least one other person I know with this camera is reporting the same issue. I am on a brand new download of Lightroom 5.2.
I have Lightroom 4.3 and a Canon 6D. I cannot get Lightroom to display my Camera Calibration Profile when I am developing a raw file.
I have dug through the MAC Library and Application Support folder and found CameraRaw. That folder contains my listed cameras. But when I am in Lightroom, I do not see that profile in the Camera Calibration section.
Is there a way to force Lightroom to display my camera profile? Lightroom 2 used to display it.
Having problems with the spanning pipe labels in profile. Sometimes it works fine and others not at all. It will let me pick the two structures at each end and highlights the pipes, but then it will not let me pick the pipe to place the label on.
As it stands, if you view a pipe network in a profile view with no vertical exaggeration, you expect to see what is essentially an accurate long section in all directions. However, rather than being applied perpendicularly from the center line (or arguably the invert), diameter is applied strictly vertically.
Now, this made sense in the days of hand drafting when it was far easier in a vertically exaggerated profile view to simply measure the dimension vertically rather than determining how the exaggeration affects the perpendicular distance. But with the computer doing the measurements, is this really a problem anymore? I've debated that to some degree it's strange to consider that the crown of the pipe may be at a (slightly) different station than the invert, but this is simply fact in the field. And I've also thought that it's nice to be able simply measure vertically in an exaggerated profile, but I can't remember the last time I dug my scale out of the drawer.
All the theory aside, the real problem appears when you try to profile a vertical, or even a near-vertical, pipe. The fact that the diameter is applied vertically means that the vertical centerline is shifted the length of the pipe radius downward and upward. In other words, rather than seeing the invert and crown of the pipe, you just see one line, though it's really two lines on top of each other.
I wrote this off for the last 4 years of basic Pipe Networks because I acknowledge that storm/sanitary outside the building is rarely designed vertically, but with 2013's release of the Pressure Pipe Network, I really expected Autodesk to change the way the profile views represented pipes.
I have a pipe network and a profile for it. Some of the structures have 2 inlet pipes. The pipe system more of less goes down a road, so every now and then there is a cross pipe into a structure. I have masking turned on under the structure style->profile setting. I want to see the cross pipe, so I found on here that all I need to do is under structure style->view direction (profile)->make Structure Pipe Outlines visible. I did that and still no cross pipe shows up. If I turn the masking off it is there.
I have a storm water pipe network and a sanitary pipe network. In the profile view I am displaying both networks. My question is in the profile view the storm pipes are in "front/foreground" of the sanitary pipes. Is there a way to "trim" out the sanitary pipe profile lines where they pass behind the storm sewer.
Kind of like a display order so looking at the profile I can tell which pipe and in foreground and which are in the back ground.
Need getting pipe top elevation in profile view data band? In labels it's possible to perform calculations via expressions. In data bands – not. Inablity to get pipe outside top elevation in profile view leads to dead end in my hunt for smooth workflow.
I have my alignment running up the page, it is the red line. I can show the profile of the pipes and structures that run with the alignment but I want to she the elevations of the crossing pipes, not just the circle in the structures where they cross but the elevation of the crossing structures and pipes, (str 102-103 and 104-105). Almost like a profile that is cut and looks north (up) instead of the cut looking east west.Can I turn my profile view or take a view at a certain station or do I need to make alignments that run east west to do this? I have included a pedicure for reference.
