AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multiple Cross Section Labels?

Jan 31, 2013

Using 2011 - Having trouble with cross section labeling.  I have multiple label markers such as ROW, and multiple EASEMENT types.  I've created corridors for each label type - each will show up if their corridor has a corridor section line at the same station as the base corridor, but at odd ball stations (like driveway openings)  the labels do not show up, I'm thinking its because I don't have these corridor section lines in each corridor.  Is there an easier work around rather than manually adding the section lines in each corridor?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Automatic Cross Section Labels

Dec 9, 2013

create a label style for cross sections that will label the travel way in the run:rise format and will label fore and back slopes in a percent format.  I can figure out how to make them all one or the other, but am having trouble getting them to reflect correctly based on where they are attached.I am having trouble coming up with the actual expression or you can do it thru code set styles, but regardless of settings that I change nothing on the cross section view changes.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Elevation Labels

Mar 21, 2012

Attached is a pdf showing the issue I'm having with the way elevations labels appear on the outside edges of cross sections. 

Issue #1:

I added the dimension to show that the bottom of the cross section is actually at 97.5 but is labeled as 98

Issue #2:

I would prefer the bottom of the cross section to be at an even elevation (98 not 97.5)

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Network Cross Section Labels In 2012?

Dec 29, 2011

In 2011 the pipe network cross section labels had to be exploded or they would disappear once you closed the drawing (even with saving).

In 2012 can you close and open a drawing and have the labels not disappear?

AutoCad 2D :: Cross-section / Elevation And Detail Cross Reference Labels

Apr 6, 2011

I am trying to annotate a floor plan to show the location/orientation of section, elevation and detail drawings. The labels must also indicate the appropriate drawing cross reference. (basically a circle with a arrow, text inside circle showing drawing cross reference). My question is - is there an automated way/library to insert such labels or do I have to create each of them from individual elements and make a block?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Section Editor Vs Section Views Labels?

Aug 12, 2013

In my section editor my labels show up correctly and in all the locations I want.  But then, in my cross section file, I look in my section views and they are completely different.  When I try to label more points under the Code Set Styles, they won't even show up on my section views.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Get Rid Of Word Vertical In Cross Sections Labels

Jul 16, 2013

I just recently was upgraded to C3D 2013 and I am designing my first road using the software. I've been having all sorts of fun and frustrations with Corridors and Cross Sections and learning slowly, but its all the little things that keep bogging me down.

One of the problems I have run into is when I use the Code Set label for Grade/Slope in Cross Sections I get label that reads -2.00% and then the word "Vertical". Is there an easy way to get rid of the word "Vertical" in every one of my 90+ Cross Sections? I checked under Label Style and it seems the only option is {Link Grade} which is what puts the Slope and Vertical. I mean what is the purpose in that word even appearing? I know that I can right click on the label and change visibility to False and it won't show, but I shouldn't have to do that for 90+ Cross Sections. Also I've seen the word "Horizontal" labeled as well and I don't want that word to show either.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Sections Not Recognizing Labels Or Elevation

Feb 22, 2013

I created several cross sections for a roadway design utilizing sample lines. I created multiple sample lines along the CL alignment and inserted the cross sections without any errors. The peculiar part is when I try to inquiry or label any cross section, nothing happens. Using the inquiry tool, I get an message that reads "Warning: Specified point is outside the section view. Try Again." If you see the attached PDF, you'll notice that the point I selected is dead center of the particular cross section in question. When I attempt to use labels to mark elevations, in the command line, it repeats "Pick a Point" but does not insert a label.

I created other cross sections in the same fashion and do not have this issue.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Projection

May 12, 2012

if i have one feature line i want to project to all sections in a sample line group it would seem you should be able to pick the one line and assign in a label style and you would be done quick and easy. instead if you pick the multiple projection option you get this percentage distance box and it tend to grab stuff you don't want.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: SSA - Cross Section Import?

I'm just starting to get involved with using SSA, and I'm wondering if it's possible to import sample lines/alignments (a la Hec-Ras).  I see that there's an irregular channel editor, but no import options that I can see.  I'll end up with about a dozen or so x-sections.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Band

Mar 5, 2012

I have a band label set up for my cross sections that will show existing grade and finish grade elevations at the 0' offset mark of each section.

However, the band does not show when I create my sections. The only way I can seem to get it to show is by right clicking a section, section view properties, bands tab, click 'import band set' at bottom of window, and select they style i want to use. But I have to do this for each section individually. That is a problem as I have over 200 sections for one piece of this project.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Direction

Nov 14, 2013

I'm currently working on a cross section plan and was wondering if there was any way I can change the direction of the cross section view.  I'm currently just using 2 sample lines, so just 2 views are needed.  My problem is that it seems like one cross section...the view is facing upstream and the other sample line, the cross section view is facing downstream.

Is this normal?  How come both cross sections don't face the same direction?  So with one x section it's in a East-West direction but the other is a West to East direction.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Display

Feb 8, 2012

I am working with cross sections for the first time and have run into a few things I can't seem to figure out. In attachment XSEC CIVIL 3D.pdf you will see how the cross sections currently look in my drawing. 

My questions:

1.  I cant seem to edit the elevation labels on the right side of the section to match the left side. Where/how can I do this?
2.  What is the red line? In some sections it exactly follows the assembly section, but in a few (like this one) it doesn't quite follow. Does this line show where manual editing was done?
3.  Where the pavement ends, there is a vertical line which I only want to show on the two pavement layers, it shows all the way thru the assembly. This also happens at the centerline of the assembly and at the edge of shoulder. I figured out how to turn them all off, but I want the edge of pavement vertical lines there.
4.  Although the assembly section comes in on color 161 which should plot black for my pen setting, it plots true color. I haven't been able to figure out how to switch this.  The second attachment shows a section from a LDD project a few years back which is how I would like this section to plot.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Volume Display?

Jul 26, 2013

I have been asked to place volumes on cross sections with a certain look, that I am not sure if it is possible. For know I am just going to use text, but I would like to come up with a solution for our template and work flow. Below is an attached copy of a markup I have received asking me to show this information on the cross section similar to how he has written it. At this point I only know how to create the tables of to the side. Is it possible to dynamically show this information quickly like shown below? I have a feeling the engineers I work with will not be happy at all with a table off to the side. I am currently using 2013

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Data Bands

Jan 2, 2009

I am creating a data band for Finished Ground. I have created a Top surface from my corridor and have sampled that as well as my original ground. I am trying to add data bands to an existing cross section view. When adding data bands for the cross section, I first go to the Section View Properties, add the data band, in this case, "FG Elevations", In the "Section1" column, I pick the Corridor surface that was sampled.

The data band does not display data. I know the data band works, because I picked the original ground as the "Section1" and it gave me the elevation.

I have noticed that under the "Sections" tab of the Section View Properties, and in the "Type" column, the original ground surface has a different symbol than the corridor surface. I have also noticed that if I have only the "Draw" boxes for the sampled corridor surfaces in the section view checked, nothing is drawn the section view. The corridor surfaces seem like they are not really there. Am I not able to retrieve data band data from a corridor surface?? If this is the case how do I go about making the corridor top surface something I can get data from?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Cross Section Sheets

Dec 8, 2012

After I create cross section sheets (Output---> generate cross section), the generated sections do not fit in the sheet exactly. In fact, the generated layouts do not cover the sections correctly, and some sections fall outside the created sheet.

It should be noted that I use the "ISO A1 Section 1 to 500" layout which is installed on the default pass of C3D (template folder), and the scale of "view section style" is  set to 1/500. I tried the scale of the drawing (toolspace window---> setting tab---> rigth click on the name of drawing and click edit drawing setting) with 1/500, however the problem was not solved.

Another important issue is that the section views in the "Model space" are shown correctly, but my problem is in the layout space after generating cross sections.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Create Some Cross Section Reports

Oct 8, 2012

I am trying to create some cross section reports. But I have noticed that none of the options available (Section Point Report, or any of the ones that use Sample Lines) will show any featureline information if it is not part of the region which is attached to the alignment chosen in the report.

For instance, I prefer to create my splitter islands as a seperate baseline (levels taken from a dummy surface) and add a simple kerb assembly to this. (So both are in the same corridor). My normal visual cross sections show the splitter island kerbs without issue. But the cross section reports do not. 

I have a similar problem with some of the footways, which are created on a separate baseline. (I am working on car parks, where the footway surrounds the car park. So it is easier to create the footways seperately). The section reports do not pick up the footways, presumably because it belongs to a different baseline.......

I dont understand why a section report cant simply pick up any featureline it crosses??

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Metric Cross Section Scales

May 31, 2013

C3D 2012 Sp3

I have a Dref alignment, samples lines, and an Xref'd corridor in a drawing. This drawing represents a base file for cross sections. The drawing scale is set to 1:10.  I want my cross sections to be 10 horz. and 5 vert.  I create the sections views in ths drawing, with sheet production on (A0 sized sheet) and they come in perfectly in model space. I then use the production tools and create the section sheets.  Here s the problem:  The viewport on the newly created section sheets has to be set to 1:100,  not 1:10, in order for the sections to plot to the correct scale. Is the viewport ratio of 10 times smaller then the parent drawing (1:10) the correct way to create the sheets?  I thought that the viewport scale should be equal to the parent drawing model space scale (1:10).  My border in the template layout is sized in mm (A0).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Assembly Views

Is it possible to have XS sampled assemblies displayed on individual cross sections?  I know that the sample line group properties control which assemblies are sampled and displayed. Say that assemblies A,B and C are sampled and displayed on sections from 0+00 to 3+00.  Can ONLY assemblies A and B be displayed on sections from 1+50 to 2+00, and A.B and C on everything else?
