AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Intersection - Curb Return

Feb 7, 2011

C3D 2010 user

I have a problem modeling intersection. This is first time I am modeling intersection. I have gone thru' and actually did all intersection tutorials offered by C3D and naturally I felt like I am ready for it.

But in real world I am not. I am trying to model intersection and I keep getting error as "Value on Wrong side of alignment to profile". I looked at target mapping and thinks so that all is okay (may be not). I am attaching snapshot of error message as well as plan view. I wanted to forward actual dwg but size is too large to post.

Point to note:This is Left lane driving setting. I realized this after I created alignment/profile/assemblies but before I tried intersection modeling. 

I did 8 iterations before this post.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Intersections 2010 - Change Curb Return Radius

Feb 24, 2012

Changing the curb return radius after the intersection has been created. I am able to go back to the curb return parameters dialog and enter a different value, but once I hit Enter or OK the value reverts back to the one I orginally used.

So it looks like I have to delete the intersection object and re-start the wizard from scratch.  Not that it's a big deal, just thought there might be a way to make the change once the intersection is built.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Feature Line Style For Curb Return With Markers At The Deltas

Dec 5, 2013

I am trying to create a feature line style that would include markers similar to minor stations of an alignment at the End Points and 1/4D, 1/2D & 3/4D locations. The thought is that I could use these on curb returns, and the markers would identify the locations we provide construction staking.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Intersection Design Using Intersection Tools

Mar 6, 2013

I am trying to create an intersection design using the Intersection Tools in C3D 2012.  I followed the steps in the tutorials, created a corridor on the major road, splitted the regions, created the intersection and added it to the major road corridor, and connect the regions with the intersection portion. 

I used the same assembly throughout the design just for simplicity, however, i notice that there are gaps of curb between the curb return section and the through section (as outline in red rectangles).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Curb Height Transitions

Aug 21, 2013

Trying to model a curb height transition in my corridor. Over about 15' I want to go from a 6" curb to flush. 

The only way I can seem to get it to show accurately is to leave a void in my corridor.   This allows the surface which is created from the corridor to model correctly and give me a transition of my curb height from 6" to flush.  Here's the object viewer showing it correctly: 

However, there are a few problems with this approach.  Mainly I've come to like the way the relatively new "extract corridor solids" tool (toolspace, toolbox, miscellaneous Utilities, corridor solids).  I use this to create a fairly nice looking Navisworks model.   With the void, now my model has a void.  It seems to me that there should be a way to have a subassembly that can target both the back of curb profile and the edge of gutter simultaneously.  I've tried with the standard subassembly "UrbanReplaceCurbGutter2" but with no luck.  Any successful modeling a curb height transition within their corridor?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Curb Drop In Corridor

Jan 9, 2013

I have a corridor with multipule intersections. I modeled the primary road straight through the intersections. Created ETW alignments and profiles to target in the intersections. Most intersections did not require this but one complex one did. All other quadrents in this intersection worked out except for this one (see attached). In this intersection the primary road alignment leaves the centerline of the road and transitions to a lane. I can't seem to figure out what this one quadrant is trying to target?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Corridor Back Of Curb

Feb 12, 2013

I am new to corridors and am having some trouble with this.  I have an assembly that has a paved roadway, 2' curb and gutter and a sidewalk.  Along the road the curb varies to allow for on street parking.  I have the front and back of sidewalk attached to an alignment, so it is exactly where it needs to be.  I have an alignment that my EOP follows as well, and that seems to be ok. The problem is the back fo curb in the corridor.  Instead of being 2' offset from the EOP, it is shifted 2' perpendicular to the baseline. Please take a look at the attached picture.

I think I can get it done by making each parking "bump out" it's own region using the EOP alignment, but that will take a lot more time and make my file a whole lot bigger. Being a corridor rookie, I am hoping I am just missing something.

I'm using Civil 3D 2013.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Getting An Assembly To Follow A Top Of Curb Profile

Nov 6, 2012

I am trying to get a street assembly to follow a top of curb profile.  The profile is at the face of curb.  The centerline of the street is my assembly target profile and alignment.  I do not want to create an alignment for the curb.  The curb profile is based on the centerline alignment.  I can't figure out how to get a link that will track the curb profile at the face of curb.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 3 Line Profile Curb Transitions

Jul 6, 2012

we use three line road profiles.  If there is a bus pullout or lane transition we show the curb profile based on centerline stationing.  I'm able to generate a the corridor using a transition lane assembly from centerline  and targeting a widened offset alignment or just a feature line.  I can import the corridor curb feature line into a profile which would be a perfect solution, but it is all truncated. (i.e. no vertical curves)  I can create a profile of the offset alignment, but the stationing doesn't match centerline.

How can I either generate a non trunidicated profile from the corridor for my curb profiles? How can create a design profile of a transition/pullout curb line that I can target and plot against centerline stationing?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Moving Curb Grades In Profile View?

Aug 20, 2012

I am having a problem with moving my profile grades. I go to Utilities under Corridors and create a profile for the left and right curb. They show up in my Alignment Profile, but when I click on one to move it, it disappears. When I type regen, it shows back up. I am trying to set my crossection grades in my Multiple Section Views.  I first create my Profile from Surface, then do a proposed centerline grade by Draw tangents with curves.  I create the corridor, put in the regions, go to corridor properties and pick the right and left corridor lines I have created. Then I set the existing surface and attach it to my profile. I create the sample lines and the Multi Section Views. Where am I screwing up?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Grading Objects From Curb Lines - Linking?

Oct 12, 2011

I have been creating grading objects from my curb lines, assigning grades using the editor, then offsetting that line for the BACK of curb, and using the raise-lower command to raise the curb line height. If I edit the original face of curb line (gutter grade) then I go back and redo the process. Is there any way to intelligently link these two lines so that if one gets edited C3D knows the other is 0.5 feet higher (or lower) than its neighbor?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Return Borrowed License From A Different Computer

Jul 11, 2013

How to Return Borrowed License From a Different Computer.

I ordered a new computer with C3D 2013 installed. I also had C3D on my old computer and had borrowed a license from our company’s server until the end of July. C3D has since been uninstalled from the old computer without first having the license returned. Now I don’t have a license for my new computer.

Is there some way of releasing the borrowed license from the old computer? If I reload C3D back on the old computer will it recognize the old borrowed license and allow me to release it?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Intersection With Medians

I am "trying" to design a intersection that contains four lane divided road. Northbound and Southbound lanes are 2% normal crown with a curbed median. I have alignments for each crown. The intersecting road is not crowned. This road is a retrofit so I am limited quite a bit so the intersection wizard is out. We're going old school with this one.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Aligning Different Subassemblies At Intersection?

Jul 23, 2013

issue with my Corridor.  It involves the intersection of a main road alignment and a secondary road. Thing is my main road has a 6' shoulder whereas my secondary road doesn't have a shoulder at all. I used the Intersection Wizard to create the Intersection, but the two templates don't align. Without the shoulder the ditches don't line up. I tried drawing a polyline between the two ditches and targeting it and that worked, but then realized that going from 6' shoulder to no shoulder wasn't working either so when I tried to target a polyline from the 6' shoulder to the edge of pavement all kind of stuff happened that didn't make sense to me.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Intersection On Looped Corridor

Mar 12, 2013

I have a site access road that extends from highway into site and then loops around and intersects with itself. Would like to keep this as one alignment in order to make Super Elev and master alignment easy to control across project team.

Issue is, we would like to use Intersection wizard at the intersection but cannot, as we ony have one alignment. We could model the intersection the old way, using kerb returns with design profiles, but as the design is still in early stages the intersection is likely to be frequently revised.

how we could utilise intersection wizard in this scenario?
