AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Option To Include Deflection Angle To Next PI In A Table
Dec 17, 2012
I have created an alignment and I would like to create a table that includes this information: station, northing, easting, bearing, deflection angle, deflection left or right, and length. So far I have not found any option to include the deflection angle to the next PI in a table.
The attached image shows a table that I created as a AEC Object from my Civil 3D Alignment (i can turn it to 'MText' and then 'Text' in one or two steps). What I need is a routine, or anything, that fills the third column with an information based on the second column: the deflection angle, something like that:
Curve Angle Type of angle
C1 22°30'00'' 2
C2 39°21'28'' 3
C3 44°59'59'' 3
C4 45°00'00'' 4
C5 45°00'01'' 5
Is there something I could read to study to solve it myself and specify my own angles/types of angles?
Is there a way to show the deflection angle between incoming and outgoing pipes in a structure label? Or any label at all, for that matter? I know it can be done with alignments at the PI point, but only in the source drawing.
How to specify the deflection angle while plotting the horizontal alignment? I’m wondering if there is a way to provide the deflection angle while plotting the horizontal alignment (based on the tangent-tangent with curve method).
If there was any way to get deflection angles of an alignment into a table? I finally figured out how to get C3D to label them using the add note label. If this is not possible, is there a way to make a table of the notes? I am using C3D 2013 version if it makes any difference.
The angle or radius are outside the table boundaries. I have used bend tables before and have not run into this. See screenshot. What I don't understand is that in the error dialog box the Thickness is correct the Radii are correct and the Angle is correct except it is showing a -90 degrees. Is that the problem? The negetive? Why is it showing a negative number. I can't change the way the part is formed. The problem seems to be with the lower left hand curl. It does go ahead and flatten it, but I don't trust the results when I have the three errors.
My LT 2012 for Mac does not show a tool for "display all layers" in the layer pallet. I've fished around for some option to add this tool or expand the upper row of existing tools, but can't seem to find it. Does this feature exist in LT for Mac? If so, any guidance on how to make this tool active? Right now, I have to select all layers in the panel and then click the display button of one to change all selected, but I notice in tutorials for Windows based versions there is an icon for this function.
Am using Inventor 2013. I have imported some surface models into an IAM. They are not visible in the idw. When I attempted to make them visible by right-clicking on the item in the idw browser, then selecting the "Include all Surfaces" option, the option was grayed out. How can this function be enabled?
Also, can "Include all surfaces" be enabled in advance for all surface models/all views in the idw so that it does not have to be done after creation of each view?
I created a pressure pipe with no bends since my alignment is fairly straight. However, I'm changing the elevations on the pipe using a combincation of the profile view snaps and elevation edits in the properties and it doesn't restrict my deflection to my deflection settings not does it add any bends.
Is this still a missing function in Pressure Networks? Or is there something I'm missing?
I clicked on a pressure pipe in profile view and selected "Edit Pressure Network in Profile...". The panel that came up has a button that says "Follow Surface". I did that and selected all of my pipe and entered 4 feet below surface for my water main and it put alot of deflections in my pressure pipes. How to remove the deflections?
Is there a way to force the table and table text height to stay constant despite the scale? I can do it for Point Label Styles with an Expression. But in 2011 there is no way to build an expression for a table style.
I want to create tables in the drawing where the points are and then plot them from a drawing they're Xrefed in to. The tables are too small but zooming in doesn't make them any bigger because the scale of the viewport changes and they adjust.
I want to know if you can link AutoCad tables to other Autocad tables on different layouts. Say I have ten sheets, each with a table for quantities of pipe length, and one sheet with a total of all quantities. Can I link cells from each separate layout sheet to the main table sheet, so that I can add them all for project totals?
im trying to create a point group by including all points and then excluding the points i don't need. it doesnt seem to be removing anything from the group. i used to do this all the time in ldd. is it still possible in c3d?
We have one template that we use for starting all our drawings. This contains all of our layers, layer filters and most commonly used blocks.
Then we have a template file called "Titleblocks" -- this contains one layout for each different size border as well as vport definitions for Plan, Profile or P&P.
When I used the C3D P&P tool to create my sheets, it of course used the Titleblocks template which means that the filters are lost. Is there a relatively simple way to add those filters to my sheets? Each sheet is a layout in a separate dwg file.
How do I include sideshots from a field book file in the adjustment of the traverse? In LDD you would import the FBK, then when imported, after defining loop you could check adjust loop to your specs. If it looked ok, you coould adjust loop, then when complete the command line asked if you wanted to adjust sideshots. You could select Yes or No and they would (or would not) be adjusted also. In Civil 3D 2013, I have imported the same FBK. When imported I have defined the traverse. I can then adjust the traverse to my specs, but it will not include the sideshots. The sideshots do not list in the Networks Non-Control Points list, so I am thinking this is my problem.
I have also edited the FBK to remove the traverse legs and just run as sideshots from the already adjusted loop values, but it still does not appear to work.
I work for a tank building company and we are starting to use Inventor for stress analysis. We have a tank that we are designing that has a tank inside of another tank. The internal tank will be holding product while the outside tank is there to prevent product leakage in the event that the internal tank has a leak. There is piping that is welded to both the inside tank and the outside tank.
So here's my question: We know the radial deflection of the piping on the internal tank due to pressure, but we want to know what the stress is going to be on the external tank shell. Is there a way that I can input the amount of deflection and so that inventor will calculate the stresses involved?
get 2012 to make an expression for curve delta angles come in DMS and not decimal degrees? Why do I need this? Well C3D does not have a delta angle label for curve pipe and our client requires it on the drawings.
