I am using Civil 3D 2014. I have a section view style that specifies 10-ft majors, displaying text labels for 10-ft majors. However, per the attached image, my section view shows the first label at a 5-ft interval and I have another that does not show the top 10-ft major.
I learnt that grid spacing in Section Views/Cross Section Sheets is controlled by the Bottom Horizontal Axes minor tick intervals and Left Vertical Axes minor tick intervals in the Section View Style dialog box(see Capture). If this is true what, then, is the function of the grid spacing settings in the "Plot Are" Tab of "Group Plot Style" dialog box (see the other Capture).
How to bring in the Finished Road Section on a longitudinal profile @ point on tie in. For example three road A, B and C are tieing in to Road X at different stations. I have profile of all the roads. and I want to change the profile of road X with reference to road A,B and C. for that I need reference road section of Road A,B and C on longitudinal profile of road X. How this can be achieved.
I am using C3D 2013, I have a corridor created using a Primary Road Full Section as my assembly, I have all the slopes and ditching set, when I go to model the corridor the ditching is not showing correctly, only small sections of the ditching are showing when I know there should be more. I have the assembly setup to build the ditching when there is less than a meter fill, but will not work.
I have a storm crossing shown on a road profile, and the ellipse that represents the storm pipe is only showing part of the inner wall (I've attached an image). This pipe is skewed slightly, but the entire pipe crosses the road alignment, and this should not make any difference.
Also, is there any way, yet, (I'm using C3D 2011) to have the label show not only the pipe name, but also the invert where the pipe crosses the road alignment, and remain dynamic,? In other words, without having to edit the label text, and lose the dynamic capability. Land Desktop would do this, but it was not dynamic, of course.
What can I do to show intersection information in a profile label?I mean, supose I have two roads (A and B)... what should I do to show in the road A vertical profile the name and the station of road B in the properly position of this A profile? URL....
If I have a Crescent Road (P - shape) where the Alignment returns to itself, when i draw pipe network parts in profile, the pipe network gets drawn wrong, ie. the tie-in structure at the intersection is drawn at the wrong station.
My understanding is that the structures will get drawn at the station closest perpendicularly to the alignment, so the structure is going to the end station as opposed to the beginning simply because the end segment of the alignment is closer.
Is there any way to make a structure use a different perpendicular station (without shortening the alignment)?I don't want to move alignment or structure.
I've just started to do some work with Inventor 2013 and I noticed that, when creating a section view in a drawing, the preview is always uncut and shaded. Even when creating a partial section, the preview shows the full, shaded assembly. I tried playing with the "Section View Preview as Uncut" setting in Application Options, but this doesn't seem to do anything.
I am having an issue when producing a section view with my corridor. I have a corridor and corridor surface, as well as an existing ground surface. I create a sample line group and sample EG, Corridor Surface, and Material. When I produce a section view I get 4 sections in the view: EG, Corridor Surface(with the corridor surface naming convention), and an additional section simply called "Corridor Surface".
This last section is strange in that it seems to be using the correct assembly, but not targeting the correct features. Also it has grips at all of the vertices which I havent seen before.
And the strangest part, when I click on properties for this section and go to section data, the columns for Description and Data Source are blank.
If there is no data source, then where is this section coming from, and why is it showing up when I did not specify that it be created. This is a real mind boggler to me and makes no sense. Screenshot attached.
My future ground somehow disappeared out of one section view in my group. Under the section tabs I still have my existing ground and pipenetwork but the future ground isn't there. It remains in the other section views. How do I add it back?
1. I had trouble with profile view of the alignment line shown. What step am i missing? Are there things that is turned off?
2. How can I best come up with the right volume to fill.
3. Do I need to learn the grading tools? or could i get buy with a section profile from the alignment. ( it is not even an alignment yet)
4. How to I render a rock fill in this cave-in.
The attached aerial image , has survey or cogo points that are imported to surface, to become surface points. . So I wanted to create a surface profile below and an outline of fill above it. Iideally the side profile would look like a trapezoid, where the base is the surface proile and top would be the design embankment.
But the reason , a surveying crew went down and took shots at the shoreline and a couple shots around the cave-in walls (higher elevation on the cave-in wall cannot be surveyed, although I coud have used a laser , did not) is so that a more accurate volume of the cave in can be obtained. I tried to label how far the road edge is from edge of the cave-in . Norice the higher elevations are the top edge around the cave in area.
The ouline for the embankment will be a mild slope then breaks to a more steep slope. like 4 :1 , then 1.5:1
I am having difficulty in creating a surface for my road in 3d at this section, the points given are along the center lines and so far have been fairly straight forward for the fall of the road as there have been no junction up until now.
I am not using 3dpoly at this point, just plain old lines.
Road 1 displays where i am having issues and Road 2 display how it looks in 2d format (only at an angle)
We have a project where the alignment is not in the center of the section (it's along one edge of the project), but we want the Title Annotation ("STA. 165+00") to show up in the center of the sections.
If you choose "Center" justification in the style, it "centers" it about the zero offset, which in our case is actually the left side.
Is there any way to truly center this call, short of turning it OFF and manually creating separate labels?
Unfortunately, I can't use "Center" and give it a "Y" offset, because the alignment does vary slightly (±30 feet) within these 250' cross sections - which would cause the label to vary by that much also...
is it possible to export the position and elevation of points plotted in a section view to a csv or txt file? I have a surface with section profiles cut every 100 feet or so, and would like an external copy of just the data used to plot the section views to use for another analysis.
I'm trying to get rid of the section centerline (red) and magenta circle (shown in the attached image) that persistently show up only in 1 of 10 sections generated via sample lines along an alignment. How to get rid of them?
When I click view extents in section editor it zoomes to my assembly. WHen I go to my next station, it zooms out to ridiculous values. How can this be set so I can do some work? I want to view my assembly and a few feet extra left/right/above/below.

I am working on a drawing for the COE. They require that the horizontal scale is 1"=20 feet for cross sections. Unfortunately the sections that I need to cut are so long that they don't fit on the page. Currently I am creating multiple viewports in paper space and creating split section views in that way but it is starting to get out of hand.
Any better way to handle sections that won't fit on a page? I can't change the scale.
