I'm trying to construct a complex corridor of urban highway. To simplify corridor i've made assemblies for each side of the road (see picture). This solves problem of countless number of regions (and assemblies) that I'll need to set if assemblies are for whole profile.
The problem with seperate assemblies for each side of the road is that I cannot connect them using Median subassembly because Marked point and Median are in different assemblies.
I'm trying to use assemblies when creating a corridor. The Tool Pallette is emply but I can drag the assembiles in from the Catalog. I've also created an assembly using the ASC. Neither work when I try to use them. The error message is attached.
I'm using a network installation and I do not have the option of changing it to a DVD installation.
I am working in an Inventor Assembly .iam, I have about 250 fasteners (screws) that are constrained to a flat washer and lock washer. I would like to put them in as a single unit (sub assembly if you will) and then promote or explode them in the top level so that my bom has 250 screws, 250 washers, and 250 lock washers all at the same level, not associated to one another except thru the constraints that were entered in the original assembly. I have tried Promote but that doesn't work because it removes the washers from the original file and I end up with only 1 instance of the assembly. Am I approaching this incorrectly? Is there a better way? I run across this scenario with different components quite often.
I've started connecting to Raster (.sid) Aerials thru mapwspace rather than inserting them thru the Planning and Analysis Workstation due to greater control with gray scale and resampling raster and such. I started noticing after I save, I can't select anything in my drawing. I was connected to a whole county Aerial .sid file, so i thought maybe if I only connect to individual tiles for my project area which consisted of 9 .sid files, the issue would go away. It didn't. I tried typing REA, purge, audit, then eventually I would crash.
Is there something wrong with FDO connections with .sid files thru mapwspace in C3D 2013???
I've attached a screenshot of some "webbing" I have going on between regions in my corridor. As you can see on the left, there's the start of a left turn pocket lane, which is why I have two different assemblies. This is just one instance, but this is happening along my entire corridor. I've given up on trying to resolve and have made gaps in my corridor. But me being an engineer, gaps bother me and would rather figure out a solution. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with point codes?
I have a proposed road with a varying curb line. There is a minimum 5 foot tree lawn between the back of curb and sidewalk. I have used a lane transition and attached it to an alignment to get the curb to follow. Also used the urban sidewalk with buffer widths.
How do I connect the back of curb to the sidewalk and keep the sidewalk in the same offset from the baseline. In the attachment, I have used a zero inside boulevard width and slide the sidewalk over from the curb line in my assembly. Will this work?
When I click on Tool Pallets, I get the Metric Subassemblies Pallet, even though my drawing units are in feet and the Properties Pallet that comes up is in feet. How do I bring up the Imperial Subassemblies Pallet?

How I can put the above mentioned Sub-Assemblies in a CUT condition? They all default to a Fill condition (Attachment Point at Top of Wall). I need it to have the attachment point at the Bottom of wall. I cannot seem to find where to do this?
I have two assemblies that represent road cross section at two points along a corridor. I want the corridor to transition smoothly between the two cross section so that if I look at a section halfway between the two assemblies it will have an intermediate width. Doing this with a simple transition assembly doesn't seem to be the most efficient approach since my offset or target actually changes as one moves up the corridor. Is there a way to generate a polyline or some other type of entity that could be used as a target?
When you paste a surface into another how does it connect the surfaces? Does it create a vertical wall where at the edge of the paste surface? Can you tell it to grade a certain slope to the surface you are pasting into?
1. We all understand that designing highways is not simple and I don't know in your country but in my area almost all the bridges come at an angle from the alignment/corridor. Now, how can you do that in Civil 3D ?
2. Can you insert an entire shape, let's say a culvert into the design / corridor and be able to show it in the 3d view preciselly like it will be in real ? what about showing it in profiles or sections ?
I have an offset assembly and I have forced the skew of the second alignment. (Is a simple basic lane + a linkslopebetweenpoints and a markedpoint placed at the left extreme of a basic road assembly)
As you can see, there are errors at the area in which we have the greater angle between cross sections. What are the limits of this C3D feature ? Above more that "x" degrees of cross sections directions difference C3D are going to fail ?
If I create / import a sub-assembly, where is it stored? Meaning is it embedded in one of the cuix files? What happens when my computer is upgraded? Or acad is re-installed?
What if I need a one-off sub-assembly--meaning that I'll only need it for THIS project? I don't want it in my pallette permanently in that case. Can I delete it from the pallette after I've added it to the Assembly?
I have a corridor with multiple baselines and assemblies (not offset assemblies, but different baselines and assemblies).
I am trying to link them together with the LinkToMarkedPoint2 subassembly. From what I have read, this should be possible with this command, but I am getting no links. Am I wrong about the capabilities of this subassembly?
I have a super-e road assembly as shown that is running into the intersection of a future road stub. I can not figure out how to get the sidewalk to grade out in the intersection transition I have created for the curb return. Any way to get through this situation?
I was wondering if there is a way to add labels to assemblies/subassemblies. When I use generic subassemblies or subassemblies I have created in SAC there aren't labels such as slope or offset/elevation. At this point I am stuck creating labels in each of my section views and this can become very tedious.
I have 4 corridors on same alignments (pics1). I created materials for each corridors (pic2). Then I created multiple section view for each corridor (pic3) ( for all corridors in section view table tab, i added corridors own materials). but cumulative material volume reset to zero at each new corridors beginning. In my project, corridors cumulative material volume value should continue from the previous corridor's value. Can i connect this volume tables or can i merge corridors ?
I am using the map connect command to import a geotiff file to NAD83 coordinates. After import, the image displays correctly at the correct location, however my xref manager indicates that the image file location is in my local app folder within the C drive on my computer even though I specified the target base file on our network server. I also noticed the map connect function converts the files to a png file.
Because the image link resides on my computer others cannot view the image when they open the drawing. I don't fully understand how the map connect function works, do I need to use the map insert command if I want the image to be hard linked into the drawing?
I created one section with two assemblies. Main line assembly and offset (second line) assembly. Each assembly has its own alignment and profile.In strait its all ok, but in curve I get strange situation, that I try to solve. (look to the picture)
I add Mark points on Point 1 and 3. Then connect them using Link Slopes Between Points. Knowing that Point 2 is not static, but moving point I can't find any way to connect subassembly edge point to that Point 2.
So how can I connect subassembly to Point 2? Or maybe there is a smarter way to connect points 1 and 3. Slope from 1 to 2 should be 50:1 and from 2 to 3 should be 1.5:1
We use map info as our native GIS and can use these .TAB files with MAPIMPORT in C3D, but what I would really like to do is use MAPCONNECT like can be done for .SHP files, etc.. I've inquired with [URL].....and they have confirmed that their FME product doesn't support 2013.
I have a road that I am engineering and have set up my subassemblies using the daylight standard. But i would like to force a cut section until the fill gets to 2'. so that when i have 2" of fill it will still cut my ditches.
I created a base drawing for sections that references an alignment. I xrefed in the drawing where my corridor was created. When I create the section views, the corridor shows up perfectly.
I then created a blank sheet and xrefed in my section view base drawing.In this sheet drawing, only parts of the corridors are visible.I have a C&G on one assembly and a shoulder on another assembly that aren't visible. (see pics)The first pic is my section base drawing.
Any Earthen Causeway or Breakwater modeling using custom Assemblies and Subassemblies. Any tips or tricks before I get going ??
Structure would consist of a Core, an Underlayer, and of course Rip Rap. Also the Rip Rap layer will most likely have a Toe at the Existing Seabed.
The last time we did a Causeway, it was fairly complicated and I did it with Grading Objects. Edits and modifications were a real PITA. Also volumes were a little awkward to get. I figure using a custom built Assembly would be a better way to go.
