AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Geometry Points Of Superimposed Profile To Alignment Label

Mar 1, 2013

I have an alignment label that I normally use to show the PVI's of a profile in the plan view.

This is a little unusual, but in a specific case I wanted to design my profile at one alignment, but show it at another.  I designed my swale profile in the pathway profile view and then superimposed the swale profile on the swale profile view.  I then went back to the swale alignment to add these labels.

It's a no-go AFAICT.  The only profile available for me to select for these labels is the original ground profile from the surface.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Label Superimposed Profile With Its Station Data?

May 13, 2013

I can label the superimposed profile but c3d uses the stations of main profile of profile view.

Thinking on the future.... c3D can have the ability of use superelevation values to calculate  the right values of superimposed profiles ?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Label - Geometry Point Text

May 10, 2012

For composing a profile label, I can't find the option for Geometry Point Text, which would use our abbreviations under the drawing settings. It is available for alignments but not profiles. Currently have it text compenent being labeled with PVC and PVT, but I had typed that in.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Elevation In Alignment Label

Sep 25, 2012

I need to know how to display a proposed profile elevation in the major station alignment label, I mean, for example, I want to read in the label "0+000, 494.444". I've already edited my major station label style adding a (profile type) Reference text, and it only displays "?". I suppose I need to associate it with the correct profile, but I've not figured out how to. I show you how the label looks in the attached image.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile / Alignment Label Expression

Nov 26, 2012

Here is my expression:

IF((FMOD({Raw Station}+5,15))!=0,-1,({Profile Elevation}-100*FLOOR({Profile Elevation}/100)))

I have also tried it without a pair of brackets:

IF((FMOD({Raw Station}+5,15))!=0,-1,{Profile Elevation}-100*FLOOR({Profile Elevation}/100))

and I have tried it using {Station Value} instead of {Raw Station}

Here's what it's meant to do (because it's a long one):

If the station value + 5 is not divisible by 15, return -1
If the station value + 5 is divisible by 15, return the profile elevation, 
if the profile elevation is in the 100 range, subtract 100
if the profile elevation is in the 200 range, subtract 200...etc 

Here is my conundrum: If I use the expression in a profile label, it works fine.  But if I use it in an alignment label as reference text, it returns -1 for every value.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Base Structure Profile Label Location On Top Of Profile View

Nov 4, 2013

I'm working with a structure profile label style and it seems like the only way to anchor the position of the label is based on offsets from the structure itself... Any way to position the label based on the top of the profile view, so that I could make all of my labels horizontally aligned above the profile view?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Label Stations And Specific Geometry Points EC / BC

Dec 4, 2012

I have an alignment and would only like to label stations and specific geometry points such as EC/BC.  When I add geometry points to my label set it automatically gives me curve midpoints and beg/end of alignment. How can I turn off these labels so that I only get BC/EC?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Modify Settings To Create Points At Alignment Geometry

Mar 1, 2013

I have an alignment for a natural gas pipeline.

I want to use the 'Create Points at Alignment Geometry' tool in order to label only the PIs.  However, when I use the tool it creates two points (one called PI and one called CPI) at each vertex of the alignment.  How can I fix this issue and toggle the creation of the various other geometry points?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Changing Profile Line Label Style Causes Label String To Revert To Default

Sep 6, 2012

C3D 2013. We have profile line labels, some of which get manually edited (for example, change the "<[Tangent grade(FP|P2|RN|AP|GC|UN|SD|OF)]>" to a static number such as 0.29%).

However, if you CTRL+Click and select one of these labels and change the style of that one label, then the manual edits are lost and the label reverts back to the default string.

Is there any way to turn this behavior off?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Label Profile Label Stations As Raw

Aug 8, 2013

I'm trying to label my Profile label stations as raw stations, 20~20 meters, and I'm not being able to adapt the format to STATION 0, STATION 2, without any plus zeros or +, or -, or commas, or anything, as following in the image.

Is there a easy way to do it?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Edit Profile Geometry Greyed Out?

Jan 14, 2009

I have a strange thing that all of a sudden started happening. If I Rt-Clk on a surface on a profile and select Edit Profile geometry, the dialog box comes up, but almost every option in there is greyed out!

This is not drawing-specific, not is it machine specific.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Band Vertical Geometry PI

Jan 16, 2013

I did a grading, created surface with it and draw a profile view. Everything seems to be good, except with the vertical geometry band. I need to fix slope and length only at break point, means PI (blue line), but aligment has  created more PI with each surface tringular line at intersection (us i note). Is there any why to specify PI only at a break points?

I can erase PI manually on static profile view mode, but i desire to do it in dynamic mode..., in case when conditions changes.

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 :: Profile Setup - Anchored To Horizontal Geometry From Certain Point

Sep 26, 2012

is there a way to set up the profile so it is anchored to horizontal geometry from certain point. that way when i change the alignment in the middle it won't cause profile to be shifted because station changes (length changed) while the vpi stations stay the same as before.

i can make a program in .net to specify a station and move all the vpi station by that amount which can be obtained easily by taking the length before you modify minus length after you modify.

Pretty common problem. it's not that hard to do in really the logic is defined. i have this alignment that's 60km long that's only one portion. hecka lots of horzontal curve and vertical curves. over 100.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Associate Different Alignment To A Profile?

Sep 25, 2013

1/ I have spent alot of time setting up profiles so all the information on the profile are dynamic and to our company standards.  I have created the alignments along the road centrelines and created the profiles for those alignments.  Wouldn't you know it they made changes to the site plan.  When I click on the alignment and select Edit Aligment Geometry, the Alignment Layout Tools come up but I can't select any of the tools to edit the alignment.  Am I missing something.

2/ Can I create a new alignment called street A (revised) and associate it to the profile currently associated to street A (orig) so I don't have to rebuild all the profile labels etc?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Different Alignment Offsets With The Same Profile

Jan 10, 2013

I created a profile for an alignment (which has 2 offsets) and also an assembly with two assembly offsets. I wanted to create a corridor where my assembly offsets will have the same profile but will be on different alignments  (alignment offsets).

In the corridor properties / parameters, I got an error : duplicate profile found. Should I copy the profile (for each offset) in different profile views (for each offset) ? Or there is a better way to do that ?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To An Alignment And Profile From A 3d Spline

Mar 27, 2012

I'm wanting to make a corridor model from an imported DGN that contains centerlines and edges of pavement for a neighborhood.  From 2011 and 2012, the import creates splines while 2010 and older create 3d polylines. The alignment creation from objects does not work on a 3d polyline or spline and I have no clue how to make a profile from the same object.  How could I go about making an alignment and profile from a 3d spline or 3d polyline?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Copying Alignment From One To Another Profile

Aug 5, 2013

As we have a option of creating the profile from file ,by using that option we get PVI point but not the curves so every time want to copy a alignment from one profile to another in order to maintain the same levels in both the profiles using create profile from file options curves will not be copied but its pvi points will be displayed so i need to convert those pvi points to curves .

the other method of copying is by using superimpose profile option by doing so their is one problem arises that is in the copied profile if i want to see the details of the vertical geometry of that copied alignment the details of the curve will not be displayed in that band.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment And Profile Display Needs

Mar 8, 2012

I have a centerline alignment defined from a polyline that starts at the middle of an existing T-intersection and starts with Sta 1+00.

When I draw the existing profile using this alignment I want it to show starting from Sta 0+50, while the plan view maintains a visible centerline starting at 1+00.  I can get the grid to display the 'previous' 50 feet easily enough, but not the existing surface line(s).

Is this possible?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Transfer Profile From One Alignment To Another?

Apr 9, 2012

I Created a Surface Profile along my existing survey alignment (Alignment 1).  I copied that to a layout profile.  I need to transfer that profile to an alignment I drew approximately 8 ft to the right (with less verticies - Alignment 2).

I created an offset alignment of Alignment 2 - Left 8 ft.  I Created a Surface Profile from the 8 ft offset.  Using that surface profile along Alignment 2 might be good enough, but I'd prefer to use the surface profile created from Alignment 1 because it represents my high point.  I am creating a construction grade x-sec assembly that will run along (or 3-6 inches higher than the existing Centerline).  But I want to hold Alignment 2. 

I think what I need to do is to be able to hold Alignment 2, but use the Profile generated from Alignment 1 in my Corridor.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Label - Equations?

Nov 14, 2011

I am using Civil 3D 2009 version 4.

I have designed a railroad yard that the construction plans require all grading to be to centerline of rail (0.5 feet under the ties) and my profiles are required to be to the top of rail (1.3 feet above the centerline elevation). Since I already have the grading surface done I was hoping there was a way to target my grading surface and add the 1.3 feet to the elevation in the label. Is that passable?

Using the stock 'Elevations and Stations' style I targeted the existing ground for profile 1 and the finished ground for profile 2. Then I tried using the language you enter at the command line to do math in the label (+ 1.3 <[Profile2 Elevation(Uft|P2|RN|AP|Sn|OF)]>) but that only generated a label that read "(+ 1.3 242.00)" instead of the "243.30" that I need for the loading area, for example.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: EG Profile Not Updating After Alignment Is Modified

Mar 12, 2013

I created an alignment in one file.  Then in another file I data shortcut that alignment in.  From there I created an existing ground profile using that alignment.  Later I modified the alignment. When I go into my profile drawing containing the existing ground profile, it did not update.  I have had this happen on several projects and I can not figure out why it is not updating.  My station range on the existing ground profile is set to automatic. 

I used to do this all the time in 2012 and never had this problem. I am using 2013 with the latest update..

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating 3D Poly From Alignment And Profile

Aug 14, 2012

I've been asked to create a 3D poly from a given alignment and profile.

The only way I know to do it, is to create a feature line using the "createfeaturelinefromalign" command and exploding it.

My problem is that the resulting 3D poly loses a lot of the "precision" the feature line had (how closely it followed the alignment).

another way to create a 3D poly or of some method of maintaining the feature precision when exploding it?
