AutoCAD Inventor :: Measure A Cross Sectional Area

Aug 19, 2012

Is there an 'easy' way to see a cross sectional area and measure it?  I have tried getting a cross-sectional area by off-setting a work plane into the model, sketching on that plane, and pressing F7.  

This shows the cross-sectional area, but when I click the inspect>area I can not select the cross-section.  Any thoughts besides creating a sketch on that surface and extruding it to remove; taking the area measurement, and then undoing the extrusion?

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 :: Creating Sectional Views Within Layout Drawing

Jan 10, 2014

If it is possible to create a sectional view from my model and place that section in a new viewport without changing my other viewports. I have several viewports in my drawing but I need a certain detail section of the model but I do not want any of my viewports to get affected.

I can not have anything added to my model, since later on I will be using this drawing as a xref and I only want the main model to be carried over and not a section detail.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Adding Profile To Existing Profile Views

May 10, 2013

I have 3 profiles that I've superimposed together.  Then I created sheets using the superimposed profile.  I used the wizard and had Civil 3d do it for me (2012).  Now I have to add a 4th profile to the mix and get it to show in my profile views that have already been cut.  The data is shortcut into the drawing with my cut profiles views.  How do I get it to be in the cut profile views without re cutting everything?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Assembly Views

Aug 8, 2013

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?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Cross Section Views (Sheets) / Set Margin Inside Viewport?

Mar 12, 2013

When creating cross section views ("Home>Section Views>Create Multiple Views"), my sections are being placed at the exact boundary of the viewport (viewport is per my template).

Surely there's a way to create a margin inside the viewport.

Here's a screen shot of what I'm seeing.  Notice how the dotted "Plot Area Boundary line is going right thru the left axis labels and on top of the bottom axis blue line (which means the bottom axis labels will NOT be seen).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Network Profile Views

Mar 12, 2012

I am using C3D 2012.

I have a storm water pipe network and a sanitary pipe network. In the profile view I am displaying both networks. My question is in the profile view the storm pipes are in "front/foreground" of the sanitary pipes. Is there a way to "trim" out the sanitary pipe profile lines where they pass behind the storm sewer.

Kind of like a display order so looking at the profile I can tell which pipe and in foreground and which are in the back ground.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Projecting Objects To Profile Views

Apr 9, 2012

I have been using feature lines along buried utility locations to project these objects to section views. It works great. I created label styles, and It pops a vertical label on the section view that points toward the existing ground. I tried to use the same feature lines to project objects to profile views, and get very strange results. I do not get an option to select a label style, that field is blank, and on the profile view there is not a point where the alignment and the feature line crossed, but a line drawn all over the general area of the utility location. I have attached pdf examples of a sucessful section view and an unsuccessful profile view. I manually added the "EXISTING WATER" label so that it's easy to locate the line representing the water line.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Plan Production Profile Views

Dec 14, 2013

I am trying to use the plan production feature and I've got it working pretty well except when it creates the profile view, it cuts off the data band and also makes the viewport at the very top edge of the profile, so in the viewport I can't see the data band or the top edge of the profile view.

What setting am I missing to make it show the data band?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Views In Base Maps

Dec 8, 2012

What are some workflows people are using for creating P&P sheets?

I have a project that is 8 miles long so I created all the profile views (18) in one base map drawing using the plan production tool and then they are xrefed into my individual sheets.

I'm finding that doing a save or regen take approx. 30 seconds each time. That seems unusually slow to me.

I asked my reseller about it, and their comment was "We wouldn't recommend that many profile views in one drawing".

I assumed (maybe falsely) that if the plan production tool allowed it, then it should work.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Split Profile Views And OSNAP Cause Crash

Mar 29, 2010

I've been trying to use the automated plan & profile production tools with 2010, but haven't quite gotten the final product I wanted so I've resorted to manually setting up my own "viewframes" to align my viewports with. However, when I snap to either the top right of my profile view or the bottom right of my profile view, Civil 3d automatically crashes. This makes creating closed rectangular polylines to act as "viewframes" around my profile view very frustrating since at some point or another I'll forget to turn osnap off and blam!, civil3d is gone. It only happens with split profile views and it only seems to happen at the right side of the profile. It doesn't seem to happen at splits. It has happened in 2 different drawings. It has happened with different profile view styles.

Update: It only happens when Node is enabled in OSNAP so I can Node and be fine, at least until the next day I forget to disable Node while doing something near a profile.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Show Locations Of Cross Section Sample Lines On Profile View

May 15, 2013

recommend a good way to indicate the location of cross section sample lines in a profile view (of same alignment) as vertical lines? the sample lines have been created at user defined locations from polylines, and do not follow a particular station order. my first thought was to use transparent command to draw line in profile view using station from plan view, but i have in excess of 100 cross sections, and that may be time consuming.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Copying Alignments Into One File - Profile Views With Ease

Feb 12, 2013

I am doing design for a road network. For the ease of design, I designed the main roads and split the whole network into parts. Every part will contain Main Road Alignments and alignments for a respective parts only. Now I want to combine all these into one file. When I copy all alignments into one file, the surface I created earlier is duplicating and software gets hanged.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Station Equations - Lock Profile Views Start And End Stations?

Oct 5, 2012

This is using Civil 3D 2012 Service Pack 2.1

When a Station Equation is added to an alignment it causes all of the profile views to get messed up. In addition once the EG profile changes the entire FG profile may also need to be changed. See this video I uploaded to Youtube that fully explains and shows the problem: [URL] ........

So, any way to some how lock the profile views start and end stations? Or to some how lock the PVI locations on a a proposed profile to certain stations?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Show Arrows (solid Or Stick) Between Vertices In Profile Views

how to show arrows (solid or stick) between vertices in Profile views. It seems other design packages can do it so I hope C3D can as well, however I can not find anything detailing if it can be done or how. I attach and example so you can see what I mean. Arrows show sections of differing flow/pipe size & grage for each pipe.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Label Widths Of Roadway?

Jan 21, 2013

I'm working on a windfarm access road with tight bends that need to be 2.5m wider than the straights. I have created offset alignents and the corridor with no problem but how can I label the widths to show the variation in width at the various locations. The road is at the full width (7.5m) between tangent points and then tapers to the standard width of 5m

I have shown simple aligned dimensions on the screenshot but I'm sure there will be a way to do this automatically - won't there?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Roadway Design On Profiles For Low Points In A Sag For Drainage Structures

Aug 23, 2013

Is there a way to design the road profile to use the low point at a certain Roadway station so you can put your storm inlets to line up with property lines. Because when you create a Sag the PVI is not where your low point falls on the profile. It would be nice to be able to drag the low point not the PVI to create the low point where you need it instead of a sort of back and forth dragging the PVI of the vertical curve.
