AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Bands - EG Elevations Blank

Jun 28, 2011

Civil 3D 2011: 

I have 7 roads in my drawing and all of the profile data bands except one are correct.  We first started with an overall profile with the EG created from a surface and the FG created by drawing in profile, then created multiple profile views.  The only thing wrong with the one road profile is the data band is not showing the EG elevations.  The strange thing is under Profile View Properties - Bands Tab, Profile 1 is set to EG and Profile 2 is set to FG, so it recognizes it is there and is also shown in the profile, however no elevations.  I have tried recreating the multi profile views.  Attached is a screen shot to give you a visual.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile View Bands

Jan 11, 2014

I'm having difficulty adding bands to a profile view in Civil 3D 2013 in that the bands appear to be come corrupt in not showing the data (the check box to show is unselected, even if I set it to show) and when I go into the UI and turn the bands to show the bands don't show the information correctly. 

 Alignment align = profileView.AlignmentId.GetObject(OpenMode.ForRead) as Alignment;
Profile prof = profObjId.GetObject(OpenMode.ForRead) as Profile;
if (!profileView.IsWriteEnabled) profileView.UpgradeOpen();
profileView.StyleId = profViewStyleObjId;ProfileViewBandItemCollection bottomBandItems =

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Profile Bandsets With More Than 2 Profile / Surface Elevations Shown

Mar 14, 2013

Im creating a Profile Bandset and would like to have multiple surface/profile elevations shown, ie: EG, FG, Back of Curb and Back of walk. While creating this bandset I see that the text component editor properties only has code for profile 1 elevation and profile 2 elevation in the properties area, which the code for this looks like below.

<[Profile1 Elevation(Uft|P2|RN|Sn|OF|AP)]>
<[Profile2 Elevation(Uft|P3|RN|AP|Sn|OF)]>

Ive tried to write my own code using the profile 2 as an example but it doesnt seem to work as a 3rd surface/profile and only seems to mimic the profile 2 elevation when placed in the band

My questions are as follows

1) does Civil 3d only allow 2 surface elevations in any band set? if it does allow more profiles/surface elevations what am i missing to create it? 

2) if Civil 3d does alow for multiple surfaces to be shown in the band set how do i get the text component editor to supply the extra profile elevation codes? or would i need to create from scratch

3) if i need to write the code from scratch does any listing of the codes and meanings of each code ie what does RN, Uft, Sn and so forth do and mean .

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Showing Features In Profile Bands

Oct 29, 2012

I'm currently making a profile view where i want my features/objects to be shown in the bands for chain age elevation etc.

I have fences footpaths & vegetation lines that i can show in my profile view by 'projecting objects to profile view', but i was wondering if I could show these in the bands instead as it would be more convenient.

From what i can see in my bands I can label at Major Stations, Minor Stations, Horizontal Geometry Point, Vertical Geometry Point, Station Equation & Incremental Distance.

I've attached a picture showing what it currently looks like.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Data Bands For Pipes?

May 15, 2012

In order to have a data band at the bottom of my profile label the station and invert of my sewer pipe I just created a profile along the pipe and then have a data band in my profile that labels that profile.  I have that profile style set to not plot so this way I can leave it on all the time.  This is all fine and well.  I have labels every 100' that label the station and invert elevation but at times I want to label miscellaneous locations along my pipe such as a bend or something.  How do I add an addition data band label to achieve this?  Everything I have found only lets me have these labels at a specified increment set in the band style.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Data Shift Above Bands In Viewports

Aug 10, 2011

I have profiles in viewports were the data from the bands are shifting to a point above my bands.  The profiles are correct in model space but not in paperspace, when I return to a layout tab.  If I go into the viewport and regen then the data will temporarily go back to its correct location. If I switch between layouts the data shift. If I try to select the band data the pick point are above the bands, where they default to.  This affect not one band but all bands associated with that profile;elevations, stations, pipe data.  This wasn't an issue at first it just started happening to the drawing.  The drawings were fine and I plotted out a check set to review and when I go back to fix a couple of things this started happening. 

I have three profiles all set to 1:5. Two viewports are 1:500 and a third is 1:250, three different layouts.  The 1:250 profile only affect the pipe data only and not the elev or the stations data.  I have attached a screen shot showing the same profile in two viewports the left one shows the new default position of the band data and the right one is a regenerated viewport showing were the data should be.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile View Horizontal Geometry Bands

Sep 9, 2013

I'm using C3D 2012.  I created a profile view for a straight horizontal alignment.  The band label for the horizontal won't appear for this particular straight aligment.  I have a few other alignments that has curves in it and the profile view displays the labels fine.

I tried to create a new straight alignment again, create a profile view but I get the same results.I also tried it on a new drawing using the NCS metric template with same results.

I can think of (if this is a bug) is to extend my alignment by say 0.1m and add a new IP at the correct alignment end, mask that on plan and end my profile view to the right length.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Plan And Profile Bands Are Shrinking - 2010?

Jun 15, 2011

When I am doing my plan and profiles I have come across a couple of instances where when I am ready to plot or just switching over to the layout tab that the bottom bands of my profile have shrunk.  Is thereanything that i can do to stop this or to easily restore them back to normal size?  Could this be a Civil 3D 2010 issue or more likely an issue with the template that we had built for our company.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Bands - Multiple Surfaces Sampling From One Design Profile?

Jun 26, 2013

I have 2 different surfaces (Existing Ground & Proposed Pipe Invert) that I want to have the elevations shown for in a profile data band, but I want them to show at the design profile's PVIs (Proposed Road).  Is it possible to set up a data band style that samples at one profile's geometry points but displays the elevations from these points from a different profile?  My workaround is to set the data bands to all sample from the design profile first and label over the design profile's data band but I'm hoping for a cleaner solution.  Attached is an image showing the profile view in question.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Hiding Profile Elevations In The Band

Mar 21, 2012

Attached is a drawing with my profile along with elevations in the band.

UPPER BAND - has proposed road elevations on the left and existing road elevations on the right.

LOWER BAND - has pipe elevations on the left and the SAME existing road elevations on the right.

I've been messing around in the profile view properties but cannot hide the duplicate elevations in one of the bands.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Existing Profile To Show FG Elevations

Feb 15, 2013

I'm currently working on a profile and I just don't understand why my profiles barely show any stations.  It doesn't even show the very first station.  I remember checking on a box that mentioned showing the 1st station and still nothing.  I've gone into the edit band style and turned on the labels at minor stations but it just turned on the FG/EG elevations.

I've added a picture showing what i'm talking about.  It only shows stations 31+00 and 32+00.  Not 30+00 or the 50' increments.  Also, while I'm on the subject.  How do I get something proposed into this existing profile to show FG Elevations.  Example if I just wanted to strike a straight line from 30+00 to the end where the elevation is a 91' & 86'.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Adding Profile Elevations To Alignment Labels

May 10, 2010

Is there a way in C3D to add elevation information from a profile to an alignment label? What I'm trying to do is add labels to an alignment in a plan view with elevation information from a profile design associated with that alignment at a particular station. For example, the note would read:

STA: 12+83.67
ELEV: 435.87

I can't figure out how to add any elevation data to the alignment note. I really don't want to have to create a section and a corridor surface, but that's the only way I can think of right now... and I'm not sure that would actually let me add a station and elevation in the same note in a plan view.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile View / Displaying Two Elevations Per Chainage

Apr 11, 2013

I've drawn a profile and would like to show the elevations of each surface selected in different bands. I've set up the bands easily enough though when they display on the section I've got two levels either side of the chainage line one with 0.01 precision and one with 0.001 precision - I only want to display one. I've tried fiddling with the Profile View Properties but don't seem to be getting very far..

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Change Profile Elevations Of Intersecting Roads

Dec 18, 2013

Is there a way for the program to automatically change profile elevations of intersecting roads.

Say for example i have two intersecting roads ROAD A and ROAD B.

On my ROAD A profile at station 0+300 i have a proposed road elevation of 9.5
On my ROAD B profile at station 0+000 (intersecting point) I have the same proposed road elevation of 9.5.

Now i change my ROAD A profile at station 0+300 to 10.3

Is there anyway to allow the program to automatically change my ROAD B profile elevations to 10.3 


and I have to use the Annotate > Add Labels > Profile View > .......................... labels,

Is there a way for those labels to link across the profiles such that , On my ROAD A profile at station 0+300 i put the label at the elevation of 9.5

On my ROAD B profile at station 0+000 (intersecting point) I have the same label at the elevation of 9.5

Now i change my ROAD A profile at station 0+300 to elevation of 10.3 then is there a way for it to automatically raise the ROAD B elevation label

So that I would know, without having to manually check through, that there is a discrepancy between those intersecting roads. So the real list of my query is whether I can link my alignments, profiles or annotation labels.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Edit Feature Line Elevations In Profile View

Sep 26, 2013

I have a finished grade surface and I have a feature line that is my waterline. I created an alignment and then recreated my feature line so they would be linked. I can then create a profile using my alignment and that shows my surface at that alignment. I can even add the waterline by using project objects to profile view. 

I need to be able to edit the feature line elevations in the profile view by creating and erasing PVIs so this will tie back to my geometry.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Set More Bands In Section View

May 31, 2012

I have a problem to set more bands in section view.

Normaly I word with 3 bands (existing elevations, designed elevations and the distances between them), but now I need another 2 bands:

1) is the diference between the top surface of the coridor and the existing surface

2) is the diference between the bottom surface coridor and the existing surface

I want ot ask maybe there is a setting to not let me make more bands?

In fact I make the 2 more bands but the Civil 3D 2012 and 2013 is not giveing me the data in these bands.

I uplloaded a picture for example to be more clear.

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 :: How To Add Data Bands To Minor Stationing As Well

Oct 3, 2012

We are doing a waterline, approximately 5 miles worth, and I was curious how to add the data bands to the minor stationing as well.  We want to show EG elevations every 25' but so far I'm unable to find a way to make it show. The major stations are fine, I'm just not seeing the "switch" to get the minor ones on as well.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Duplicate Geometry Point Labels In PV Bands

Apr 29, 2012

I do know that tere is supposed to be an algorithm in C3D that will recognise when two geometry points are coincident on a profile view...that is, say a profile vertical geometry point happens to occur on a major station (for example).

I have never seen this actually work. When I have this situation, the labels stagger and I get two columns of identical data on my PV.

I know I can remove individual labels bY CTRL+select and eIther erase or turn visibility to false, but I would rather that C3D figured it out for me and removed the duplicate data.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Copy The Settings Of Profile1 / Profile2 In Bands

I would like to copy the settings of Profile1 & Profile2 in bands from one ProfileView to another ProfilView.

I succeed to read Id (and name) for each ProfilViewBandItem form the source ProfileView, then I select the target ProfileView.

I open it in Write mode, and for each ProfileViewBandItem, I replace the Profile1Id and Profile2Id by good Id, but when I commit transaction nothing appears, the profilview is not updated, bands stay with their original settings.

How can I force the ProfileView to be updated after assigning new Id for Profile 1 & 2?

2. How to add connecting alignment label and station in profile view. For example I have an main alignment and in-between lot of other alignments are meeting with this alignment.

I want to show in profile view of the main alignment the meeting alignment's name and the station it meets with?
