AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Targeting Offset Alignment Layout Profile With Corridor Lane Assembly

Jul 19, 2012

For some reason I cant seem to target an offset alignment layout profile with my corridor lane assembly.  I can target the existing the existing groundprofile with the same  offset alignment, but the layout profile when targetted does not change the lane in my cross sections.  I can do this with civil 3d 2010, but not 2012.  I have tried other lane sub-assemblies and it doesn't make a difference.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Dynamic EOP Profile Based On Cross Slope From Center Line Profile

Jun 28, 2012

The intersection wizard makes dynamic EOP profiles based off of the cross slope from the centerline.  Well the intersection tool doesn't always work with funky intersection layouts.  Is it possible to manually create a dynamic EOP profile based on the cross slope from the centerline profile?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Vertical Offset Layout Profiles Dynamically

Sep 14, 2012

I am creating construction plans sets that require 3 road profiles for the left edge, center and right edge.  I would like to dynamically link the center line profile with the edge profiles. 

I have created alignment offsets to obtain the existing surface at the offset location.  I would like the edge profiles to have a vertical offset from the center profile.  Also if I modify the center profile I want it to dynamically adjust the edge profiles.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Dynamically Linked Vertically Offset Design Profile

Dec 6, 2012

I have a design profile and now I want to create one that's linked to it but have it 0.5m lower than the profile I just laid out. Is there a way to do this? I'd like to keep them dynamically linked so when i manipulate the 1st profile it will drop the 0.5m lower profile. In theory this would be a great feature to have in CIvil 3D.

At this point I will likely need to copy the profile and drop it 0.5m in elevation with edit geometry. Not ideal considering when I adjust the main profile I'll need to redo that process to show the profile 0.5m lower than my main design profile. (used as a side slope target).

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Dynamic Stretch Grip Gets Offset

Apr 4, 2012

Is there a way to have the grip stay in the correct position when the distance multiplier is .5? It seems to "get ahead" of the original location.

In the attached block, when I stretch the block with the grip, the grip ends up off the end point.  Both actions have a .5 multiplier, with the left side having a rotation of 180 - so both sides stretch equally in opposite directions.

Also, there are 3 views with parameters (width/depth). Is there a way to get the user to enter in the sizes without having to select the size on each view? Basically a table that has a 'user input' field so the size selected changes everything at one time.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Profile Layout From Feature Line

Oct 4, 2012

I want to create a profile layout by feature line. Is it possible?I have a pipe about 3 miles long, an alignment along the pipe, and a provie view showing the exisitng surface and pipe network. The pipe network was created from a feature line. I projected the feature line to the profile.

This is why I want to do this: I need to label the horizontal and vertical angle points of the pipe in plan view. I crated a style that shows the station and elevation. I want the elevation to reference the profile. But it only gives me the elevation of the surface and I need the top of pipe elevation.

I tried crate profile by layout and traced over the top of the pipe in profile but its 3 miles and it will take a long time. How to get what I want done faster?

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Pass Attribute Values To Dynamic Block Parameters?

Dec 4, 2013

I am looking for a way to use the ATTIN/ATTOUT workflow to bring in data from an excel spreadsheet to drive the size of each of my block's instances. The block will be simple, a rectangle, with width and length parameters. For each entity in my excel/csv file these parameter values are spelled out. I know how to display these parameters in my attributes, but I don't know how, if I were to feed in these values, to drive the geometry. If there's a better way to take a list of width and length values to generate a series of blocks each with a rectangle containing its respective size.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Station-offset Label Style That Will Drop Trailing Zeros In Offset?

May 14, 2012

I am trying to create a station-offset label style that will drop the trailing zeros in the offset section - e.g. 15' instead of 15.00', but if the offset is not at a whole number, e.g. 15.01, etc.  it will display the entire offset.

I created two expressions:  IF(OFFSET-TRUNC(OFFSET)=0,.1/12,.00000001/12)

and this one:  IF(OFFSET-TRUNC(OFFSET)!=0,.1/12,.00000001/12)

I then created two offset components, one called truncated, and one called full, and assigned the heights to match the expressions. 

I have attached the file, the style is ACHD-Sta Off-Rt [copy]

AutoCad :: Publishing Offset - Layout To The Right

Sep 11, 2013

I've been using autocad for quiet a few years, I can do most of what i want but I might be missing some basic knowledge. I've been creating some template for drawing which include different layout A4, A3, landscape and portrait.

If I use plot/print using cutepdf or adobepdf as a printer the results are good (print the same than the preview).But when I use publish using dwg to pdf then my layout are shifted to the right outside of the printing boundary.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Description Key Layer Set To No Values After Values Set?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Dynamic Block With Text Inserted Into Drawing Show Text Orientation Matched To Layout

Apr 17, 2013

Is it possible to have a dynamic block with text which, when inserted into a drawing, will show the text orientation matched to the layout? I have a non-dynamic block which is simply a donut and a piece of text. When I insert it into a drawing, the text orientation will change to suit the orientation of the layout. I created another block with the same entities but I also added a couple of lines extending out from the center of the donut. I added stretch and rotation actions in order to rotate and stretch the lines. I also gave the block visibility states so that either one or two lines would appear (the block is a utility pole,by the way, with the lines representing guy wires). When I insert the dynamic block into a drawing, I cannot get the text to match the orientation of the viewport. I've tried changing different combinations of settings but the text won't appear horizontal.

The two blocks I mentioned above are inserted into one file with a number of other blocks. When I check the properties of the non-dynamic block, the "match orientation" is set to YES. I cannot, however, change the "match to orientation" setting to YES on the dynamic block. Is this simply because it is a dynamic block or am I missing something? I don't create a lot of dynamic blocks and therefore I am not a wizard at it so I am assuming I am doing something wrong.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Find Offset Origin Of Layout

May 8, 2013

I want to know the correct way to find the offset origin of a layout in an AutoCAD drawing.  Let say I have a drawing that has many items on it.  And I create a layout showing just the items in the lower right corner of the drawing.  I want to know the offset origin of this layout relative to the Model space.

I came across some LISP commands that are supposed to do just that:
(vl-load-com)(setq activelayout (vlax-get (vla-Get-ActiveDocument (vlax-Get-Acad-Object)) 'ActiveLayout ))(setq activeplotorig (vlax-get activelayout 'PlotOrigin)) 

Unfortunately, the commands don't seem to work because it always returns (0.0 0.0).  That cannot be right.

AutoCad :: Dynamic Blocks - Custom Variables / Values?

Jul 12, 2012

Just a quick query about Dynamic Blocks. I use dynamic blocks with various visibility states regularly in my drawings. Is it possible to add some kind of custom variable or value to a dynamic block so that I can identify them in automated scheduling?

For example, if I have a dynamic block which represents three variations of very similar machine models is it possible to somehow give each visibility state a value, ie: the model numbers. M100/M125/M150 etc which can then be extrapolated depending which visibility state is active?

Also regarding the limitations of dynamic blocks. Is there a number of visibility states I should not exceed so that the blocks still perform 100%?

AutoCAD .NET :: Update Dynamic Block Visibility States And Values?

Sep 21, 2012

I want to be able to update a dynamic block with data from our SQL Server database using a VB.NET program.

The dynamic block is configured to show office locations and has the associated office addresses for each office location embedded within the block.  However, over time, offices close, new offices are added, addresses change, and so on.  Plus, we have a dynamic block in each sheet size for several template types.  So, updating them remotely would be a huge advantage.  I'd like to just click a button, and know that the offices in the blocks were up to date and accurate.

Currently, I can use VLISP and the DBX technology to open each file and change the addresses.  But, I cannot figure out how to change the visibility state (office name) in the prompt list.  Anyhow, I want to drive the changes from a VB external application rather than having to open AutoCAD and run a LISP routine.  So...

how to modify the following properties of a dynamic block using VB.NET?

1. The visibility states prompt list. (add, delete, modify)

2. The associated values. (add, delete, modify)
