AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Project Survey Figure To Profile

Oct 15, 2013

I have a survey figure in plan view that I want to project to a profile.  I have a projection style set, and the command settings use this style.  When I project the figure to the profile, nothing shows up. 

If I try it again, the command tells me that an object already exists in the profile and will update it. What am I doing wrong?  What is the correct procedure to project these lines to a profile?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Survey Figure With Bad Elevations?

Jun 29, 2012

I have a survey figure that no matter what will not come in with the correct elevations, its a spline (continous) curve that the elevations get blow up on.

Only thing I can think of is the when it starts to interpolate the curve it cant get the elevations correct, this only happens in the curved area, once it goes tangent everything goes back to normal.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Survey Figure Default Style Ignored?

Jul 26, 2013

When bringing in some figures that don't match the figure prefix database in a drawing with a set default style for figures (settings tab>survey>edit feature settings) it is being ignored and the "standard" style is being created and used. Is there another setting?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Labeling Extended Survey Figure Properties

May 16, 2012

I've added an extended Figure Property to a Survey Database called 'WegAsNaam' (Name of the Road).

Filled this attribute on several Survey Figures and now want to Label this Extended Property which should be able in Civil 3D 2013.

I don't see my own created Extended Figure Property in the Label Style composer to choose?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Convert Figure To Feature Line - Export Survey Figures To Genio?

Sep 12, 2013

I have a client who uses Bently MX Roads for road design and requires that survey data be supplied in GENIO format. I realise that there are many possible options to get Civil3D survey data into MX, but I am trying to explore the use of the Subscription Extension to Import/Export GENIO.

Surfaces - no problem. Points - I see how I can get that to work. But the only linework that can be exported is Feature Lines, and it is also important that the feature lines have a name (likely related to the layer it is on).

I can convert survey figures to feature lines and name them one by one but would be very time consuming for a whole survey. Is there any way of doing all figures at once?

I'm guessing not and that it is probably easier to do the Genio creation from dwg in MX itself.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Created Project - No Access To The Figure Properties

Mar 7, 2013

Recently I upgraded to 2013 and I been having some issues with my survey DB, first of all I created a base data shortcuts project template folder with all my folders and a default Survey DB.

once I create my project, and import points to the default DB, I have no access to the Figure Properties. Is this feature, that worked in 11 & 12 now broken in 13? I have gone into the setting and copied a new files to the folder several times, to no avail, and there are no other versions of C3D on this machine.

So now that I have my points in the drawing, I go to translate them to my survey, generally I will utilize line in the drawing between field data, and platted data to translate and rotate to the platted lot or lots and the work from there on any calcs or changes. However, when my OSNAP toolbar is docked and locked and I go to select a point line the midpoint, I have no access to the OSNAPS. This also, worked in 11 & 12, but seems broken in 13.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Figure Groups And Survey Point Groups

Oct 15, 2009

I just discovered survey figure groups and am playing around with them. Great way to bring certain figures in & out. What seems crazy is that I have to check them on/off one at a time. Am I missing something or is this the only way to add figures to a figure group?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Assign Mline To A Figure Style In Figure Prefix Database

Oct 29, 2013

I am using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011.  I am wondering if there is a way to assign an mline to a figure style in the Figure Prefix Database.  Ultimately I am trying to create storm drains that have a width automatically (ex. 12" SD would come in at 12").  Right now I have a single center line that comes in and I manually offset the line to create a width or I place an mline over the center line.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Existing Profile From Survey Data

Nov 14, 2013

I am fairly new to the Civil side of AutoCAD, as I used to work primarily in Map.  I am working on a street rehab project in which I need to take survey points showing existing elevations (centerline, flowline, and top of curb) and show existing profiles in a profile view.  I have no problems setting up the profile view(s) or the centerline alignment, but I am having problems with creating the profiles themselves, and I have a two part question about them

Question 1: According to the user's guide, the correct way to set up an "existing" profile is by extracting it from a surface, but I don't have a surface to use.  In reading through the various profile types, the best way to set up what I want seems to be by using the profile layout tools, but the help says that a profile layout is supposed to be for a final "proposed" profile, not the existing.  Does this actually matter?  Will I be breaking Civil functionality by creating an existing profile using the profile layout tools?

Question 2: In reading through the profile layout tools, everything seems to be centered around PVI's.  Even using the "tangent tangent" method to add in points seems to only use the first and last point as controls, with everything in between treated as a PVI.  If you look at the documentation here, points one and four are treated as actual elevations, while curvature occurs at points 2 and 3.  In my case, since what I have is a series of actual points on a surface, each point should be an actual surface elevation with curvature occurring between points and not at them.  What method should I be using to input the points in the profile?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Project Objects To Profile View?

Aug 20, 2012

I ‘ve put some blocks (Cone penetration test) in a profile view. Then I created view frames and sheets.  I tried to insert those blocks into the sheets with the 'Project objects to profile view'  command. I get the message: “There are 10 objects outside the Profile view's station range and will therefore be ignored.”

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Project Object To Profile View?

Jul 5, 2012

I have an existing alignment and a profile view with a profile of that alignment.  I would like to offset this alignment to show the edges of roadway and add the existing ground profiles to the same profile view.  The edge of roadway lines are 3D polylines and I use the 'project objects to profiile view' to to create the profile.  I select use existing surface for elevations and it does, however, it only picks up elevations where the 3d polyline has verticies.  So where I have a tangent section that crosses a stream it does not show the stream because there are no verticies at that location.  If I create a whole new profile view and select the line it picks up elevations all along the polyline.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Project Point Group To Profile View?

Apr 12, 2012

Project objects to profile view... got it. No problems selecting individual survey points or survey figures and projecting to profile view. Is there a way to project a entire point group to a profile. I have a point group created for the large number of points to be projected. Next I right click on the point group and click "select'. Then go to Project objects to profile view. Nothing...

This process works for the survey figures, but not the point groups! In prospector tab go to survey > figures then select CTRL + each figure to project then VIOLA' the whole group of figures are projected.

Is this limited to graphical selections only? If so, is there a workaround to generate a graphical selection set from the point group.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Project One Feature Line To Section Group Or Profile?

Aug 29, 2012

Is there a way to project just one feature line (or anything appropiate...polyline, 3d poly etc) into the sections group or profiles ?

The thing is that Projection tool, labels everything that's a Block, Point, 3d poly ...etc to the sections group.

And it puts all labels in the same layer.

My project theme requires to project forest limit on every section. This is appearing on the survey as a polyline along the road. Civil Engineer / Infrastructure of metropolitan transports [URL]

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Unlock The Locked Survey Data In Survey Databases

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Survey Figures Don't Match Survey Points

May 3, 2012

here's my process:

1- Import the asc file into my drawing.

2- Convert the asc file to a FBK file

3- Import my FBK file.  The survey figure linework generated doesn't overlay my previously imported asc file.  I checked the FBK file and the coord's match the asc file.  I'm confused as to why the survey figures don't overlay the survey points from the asc file, since the coords match in both?  The survey figures are all shifted .7' and 54deg. from the points.  The elevations are all good on the survey figures, as they match the survey points.

So my quick fix is to explode the survey figures, since I don't really need them for what I'm doing, and then select all the 3d polylines and move them to them to an appropriate survey point.  Everything then looks fine and I can get the job done.

However, I would like some insight as to why this might be happening.  It's strange that the FBK and asc coordinates match, but the survey figures aren't lying over them.

AutoCad 3D :: Section Profile Through Topographical Survey

May 20, 2012

I have a 3d topographic survey and need to cut sections at various locations.Having worked with 3d models before, my idea was to use the section plain tool, but as this 3d topographical survey is made up of plines I am unable to do that.

I have seen that Autocad 3d civils has a number of fancy tools to do what I require but I am working with plain old Autocad 2010.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Using IntersectWith On Figure And Alignment?

Feb 27, 2013

I need getting the crossing point for a survey figure relative to an alignment. I'm trying to use the IntersectWith on my active alignment. I'm able to see my figure in debug mode so, I think I've got access to each survey figure. I think I need to cast the figure as a com object to a acad entity using directcast, but that's where it's going bad. When using the ofigure.GetObjectId it returns an integer value and it fails in VS Express 2010 in the DirectCast when trying to pass the objectId.

The error (if I'm setting this up correctly) :integer cannot be converted to objectid
 
'Get figure crossing point Dim ofigures As AeccSurveyFigures = oSurveyProject.Figures 'Dim figEnt As Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.Entity Dim intPoint As New Point3dCollection() For i = 1 To ofigures.Count - 1 Dim ofigure As AeccSurveyFigure = ofigures.Item(i) Dim figObjectId = ofigure.GetObjectId Dim figEntity As Autodesk.AECC.Interop.Survey.AeccSurveyFigure = DirectCast(m_trans.GetObject(figObjectId, OpenMode.ForRead), Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.Entity) m_alignment.IntersectWith(figEntity, Intersect.OnBothOperands, intPoint, IntPtr.Zero, IntPtr.Zero) Next

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Figure Prefix Database

Aug 25, 2013

I am trying to work on my figure database and have run into an issue I don't understand. Curious as to weather or not it's something I am doing, or just a bug.

I wanted to look at every possible line that could be imported so I created a dummy point file using the Figure prefix data base and imported it into one of my blank templates and ran into to curious issues.

Issue 1

CP is connecting to AA

Issue 2

OC only connects if the point has an identifier behind the OC, for example OC01.

Here is a copy of the figure database and point file I am using. I understand you will not have my layers, but the connectivity should be the same. Let me know if you need anything else.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Figure Multiple Volumes From Two Surfaces

Sep 26, 2013

using CIvil3D to figure volumes.  I have a very large aerial topo from a couple years ago to compare against a topographical survey I completed this year.  No problem creating surfaces. 

Question:  In the topo's, I need to get a volume from two different areas....one area being a fill area, the other being the borrow area.  Don't want any volume data throughout the rest of the site.

Do I just create one large surface for each topo and designate boundaries somehow?  Or do I need to create multiple surfaces for each topo?  If this is the case, will I need to make sure any breaklines, etc. don't cross from one area to the other?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Figure / Feature Line Styles

May 29, 2012

Why are figure line styles and feature line styles not shared, or a parent / child relationship?  Also, should match properties change the style of a feature line to appear to be the same style as the figure line?  The style only exists in as a figure line style. 

If we offset a Figure line (feature line stepped offset) we get feature line, then we match properties to a figure line that has the correct style.  The prospector says the Feature line has the style of the figure line; however, if we edit the feature line properties the style is set to none.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Polyline From Figure Using BaseCurve Method

Nov 18, 2013

[URL]

You said that there is no need to flatten, but each method I have tried does not produce a polyline with curves.

I tried:

survfig.BaseCurve
survfig.BaseCurve.GetProjectedCurve
survig.BaseCurve.GetOrthoprojectedCurve

If if manually flatten the figure using a dummy suface with the AeccFeatureElevsFromSurf command, the polyline derived from survfig.BaseCurve will then have actual arc segments.

Is there another method or a way to flatten the figure programatically first?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Figure Prefix Database And Break Lines

Aug 26, 2013

I am running Autocad Civil 3D 2012. I created a figure prefix database that our surveyors were familiar when coding in the field. It is a numeric code list. I received a survey last week that had 6 break lines coded in the point file. Only one of the 6 acts as a break line.

All break lines start and stop with the right line work commands but they fail to break crossing triangle legs. I've checked everything I can think of and the setup looks correct . The only difference between the one break line that works and the others is that break line has sequential point numbers while the other break line codes are scattered throughout the point file.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Matching Letters In Figure Prefix And Description Key Set

Imported survey text file, linework for GPNT came in correctly but at each shot the symbol for GP (Guy Pole) came in. Is there a way to fix that without creating a description key for GPNT. Have others with the same situation. Wanted to avoid adding description keys for items that were displayed all the same.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Figure Prefix Form Excel Spreadsheet / Access

Is there a faster way to create figure prefix i.e form excel spreadsheet or access.

I have one tip also. When you modify the figure database "C:ProgramDataAutodeskC3D 2013enuSurvey" by using notepad and you add "*" after each figure it will connect during linework codes that much the prefix code and will exclude the integer, EPN1 and EPN2 will be treated as EPN

The aterisks can not be added from the civil3d .

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 :: How To Base Structure Profile Label Location On Top Of Profile View

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 .
