AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Losing Superelevation Data When Editing An Alignment

Oct 29, 2013

I have an alignment I need to edit that has a reverse curve.  The first curve was made with the "Floating Curve (from entity, radius, through point)"  and the second with "Free Curve Fillet (between two entities, radius)"

When I delete one or both curves i lose all the superelevation data beyond the editing location due to the temporary spit in the alignment.  The superelevation data is all manual.  This is a trail and the super is based on drainage not curves.

how to edit the alignment with a temporary split and not lose the superelevation data?  I have not found a way yet to remove the reverse curves and not have a temporary gap.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Created An Alignment With Superelevation Wizard

Mar 20, 2013

I am currently trying to design a roadway with a reverse curve in it. I am having trouble getting my corridor to model my assembly correctly as it is showing the roadway as the generic assembly and is not adding the superelevation that is shown on my alignment. I have done the following:

1) created an alignment with superelevation wizard - superelevation diagram shows up correctly

2) Created a profile for this alignment

2) created an assembly (Road layer is LaneSuperelevationAOR) in which the right lane is set to use SE on the right outside lane and the left lane is set to use SE on the left outside lane

3) Created a corridor with the assembly and set the width targets to the offset alignments (I.e. the lines that are the edge of pavement) 

The corridor does not show the superelevation values based off of the alignments superelevation that it has calculated. I did get the supers to show when i tied the Future EOP to the existing surface, however i do not want it to tie in, I want it to just show the values that were calculated. 

Is there a way to get this to show without referencing an additional profile? Also, on my first curve i want to keep the right side at a -2% slope and raise the left side to 2% slope (RC). Is there a way to limit the calcuations to only use a reverse curve?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Superelevation Labels In Plan View

Dec 30, 2013

Is there a way of adding superelvation data such as full superelevation cross slope to an alignment curve label in plan view?

In my case we add a label for each horizontal curve with critical curve data such as PI Station, Delta, Degree of Curve, etc... but I can't seem to find a way of adding any superelvation information to the plan view as a label.  Ideally I would like to be able to add the maximum cross slope value and superelevation critical stations to the label.

There is a way of adding the superelevation critical stations a labels to the alignment similar to how PC's or PT's  are labeled, but it does not give the cross slope value.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Reference Alignment Stationing Differs From Original Alignment

May 3, 2012

I using a data reference/shortcut to properly label an alignment in paperspace. However when I reference the alignment in and apply the labels the aren't the same as the original alignment that I am referencing. Is there a setting where I am supposed to apply a new beginning station.

Also it seems as though the stationing(distance) isn't even matching up 1:1 with the original drawing. For example in the original base drawing my alignment starts at 10+00 with the next PI at 14+76.98, but the stationing on the reference alignment starts at 0+83.33 with the very same PI being labeled as 1+23.08. So the very same distance is 476.98' in the real design and the drawing it's being referenced in, but the stationing of the referenced alignment shows it as 39.75 Units.

I've attached a screen of the beginning of the alignment.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Re-Station Alignment After Editing?

Jan 13, 2013

After editing an alignment in my drawing the stationing did not update to the new edited alignment. I tried selecting the alignment and in alignment properties changing the end stationing, but I get the error "Either outside alignment limits or within gap created by a station equation". The stationing stops at my first edit point 66+24 when the total length of edited alignment is 103+15. Is there a way to re-station alignment.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Export Alignment To Excel As XYZ Data?

Jun 19, 2012

I was trying to export my alignment, at certain intervals, to excel (or text) as xyz data. I tried searching and found... Alignment to xyz

But it didn't really work. I can export the XY but not the Z in the report manager.

So my questions are.... How can I create a new report to incorporate the Z? Or is there another way to do it?

I should add I also tried the "Incremental Stationing Reporting" from the Profiles Report... However it doesn't recognize the profiles I've created? I get the "No FG profiles in....." even though there are?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multiple Data Shortcuts For Same Alignment?

Jan 25, 2011

For some reason when I try to "Create Reference" to bring in my Alignment, Finished Ground and Existing Ground I get three different alignment data shortcuts instead of them grouping into one. I am trying to find out where in my workflow this all went wrong.

I have a .dwg that just has my alignment files in it. Then I make a new drawing and data shortcut in those alignments and Surface. I make my profiles and then create the data shortcuts for those. I start a New drawing and try to reference the alignment and profile and I get duplicated that aren't grouped. If you take a look at the two .bmp's you can see what happens.

The Purple highlighted area is how I want it to show up and that one worked just fine. Same work flow. The yellow is what is giving me a hard time.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Lock Alignment Data To Pipe Network

Aug 4, 2011

is it possible to lock an alignment to a pipe network, so that if you move a structure, the alignment moves with it?

along those same lines, when you create an alignment from a pipe network, is it possible to auto assign the reference alignment to the pipe parts, so that labels come out correctly?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Automatic Update Of Block With Alignment Data

Apr 27, 2012

Is there a way to have a block (called test, for arguments sake) within this block we have text (attribute / fiield or whatever).

Now I have an alignment that has stations set every 10 units and on those stations I have inserted the block "test" as part of the alignment label style.

I can get the block inserting correctly, rotation the direction I require etc but what I need is for this block to report the station number.. ie 10, for the first 20 for the second and so on.

Is this possible?

For a roadway project I am creating alignment detail sheets. For the first project, only a portion of the final road is being constructed. I have the proposed alignment brought in with data shortcuts and will use various styles for the labeling. But I only need a few different sections of this alignment to be shown. Is there a way I can set clip boundaries or mask out the sections I don't want to show?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Editing Multiple Alignment Station Offset Labels

Mar 19, 2013

I am trying to edit labels for a particular alignment. All labels are along the same alignment and use the same alignment style. I need to change "defl." in each of those labels to "defl:". So simply changing the period to a colon. But it is a lot of work to go through each label and then in edit label text and then change it. Plus, I have to do this on 12 sheets. That's like 300 labels! Is there a quick way to achieve this. If it were simple mtext or dtext then I could use the find and replace option, but these are civil 3d alignment station offset labels? Is there a lisp that can accomplish this task? I am using Civil 3D 2010.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Drawing Has Disassociated Surface And Alignment Data References

Aug 28, 2013

I am working on roadway project where I am using Pipe Networks to layout the drainage infrastructure.  I have set my working dwg up so that I am data referencing the existing surface and proposed alignment.  I have set my pipe network up so that it is also referencing this surface and alignment.  Everything was working fine.  Labels were pulling the correct information from my surface elevations, and stations were being referenced as well, until I got a message that recommended that I recover my drawing. 

I ran recover and my surface and alignment data shortcut disappeared. My pipe network now shows questions marks where there were once stationing and it appears that the surface and alignment have completely disassociated themselves from my drawing, however they appear in the prospector, but cannot be refreshed.  Again the data shortcut symbol is no longer next to my surface and alignment, but there is a symbol telling me that those objects are being referenced by another object in my drawing (my pipe network).   I have tried refreshing, resetting the working folder, all to no avail.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Table With Alignment Station Data Field?

Jun 1, 2010

I have been provided with Surveyed Utility Locates along an Existing Roadway. These are provided to show conflicts between the New Storm Sewer System and Existing Utilities such as Water, Sewer, Gas, Elec, etc. The survey however is incomplete as it was prepared a few years ago and the Storm Sewer has just been designed. Yes, I can create points and provide them to the County Surveying department. However, before this is done, I must provide an easily-understood format of the new survey locations to the County Project Management.

To provide a Point Table which references the Surveyed Points' location in reference to the roadway stationing (Alignment). I have attached what the point table is to look like.

I am unable to find the desired data reference in the currently provided data field selection. Am I just missing it or is this a "Wish List" item?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Get Alignment Object From Data Referenced Corridor Surface

Oct 25, 2012

is it possible to get the alignment name which the corridor surface is built from when the surface is being data referenced. in other word no corridor as the middleman.

the way i see it is when corridor suface is referenced, it becomes a regular surface and loses some properties such as parent alignment.

i am still using COM. maybe .net can do it? either way works.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Print Doesn't Match Preview Alignment Data Reference

When create the print (to pdf), the alignments that changed and all the labels do not show up. Nothing changed with layers, styles, etc. I tried Synchronize and Refresh from Prospector. I can create another Data Ref but don't want to go thru all the labeling again.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Referenced Profiles Bring In Multiple Copies Of Alignment

Aug 24, 2010

I have a design file that has and alignment with 3 profiles (one surface profilke and two layout profiles)

All these are data referenced to the project. Then they are data referenced into a new file. I bring in one of the profiles that brings in the alignment. Lets call it "Main Street". Then I create another reference to another one fo the profiles and it brings in a copy of an alignment and calls it "Main Street (1)"

This is a pain because I cant get a profile view to show all the profiles because the profiles are associated with three different alignments "Main Street", "Main Street(1)", "Main Street(1)(1)"

This is only happening with one of the of the alignments. The other alignment has all its profiles listed under one alignment.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Data Shortcuts From 2014 In 2013 Are Auto-promoted

Sep 9, 2013

verify if this is the intended forward/backward compatibility between C3D 2014 & 2013.

My project was previously using Data Shortcuts in C3D 2013.  I opened the reference (not the source) drawing that uses a bunch of Alignments.  During the initial drawing upgrade from 2013 into 2014 I get a message for each Alignment that, "{Alignment Name} was modified in a previous version of the software. Changes in the current were overwritten when the data reference was synchronized.".  At this point everything seems fine.

The issue I'm having is that when I re-open that upgraded drawing using 2013 all of those same Alignments become promoted.  They are no longer referenced!

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Synchronizing Data Shortcuts Breaks Reference To Alignment In Profile Labels

Sep 6, 2013

I have some storm sewer alignments that I've put into profiles in C3D 2011.  The pipe network that I used to create the alignments from is a reference created from a data shortcut.   I've created profiles of these storm sewer alignments, and the station labels for the storm structures are displayed at question marks until I go into the structure properties for each structure and link it to the correct alignment.  

The problem is that whenever I synchronize my data shortcuts because someone has updated something, all of the links in each structure to the alignments disappears and I am back to? for my stations in the profiles and I have to go go fix it again. how to keep this from breaking?

I do see this recent message [URL]  that appears to be a similar problem, but it was said in that thread that this problem was introduced with C3D 2012, but I am using C3D 2011.....
