AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Sample Multiple Surfaces For Multiple Alignments

May 18, 2012

I need to figure out a way to sample multiple surfaces for multiple alignments.

Example 1: I am creating cross sections for a river dredge showing the pre-dredge bathymetry, design dredge elevation, and post-dredge bathymetry results. I have 100's of alignments that I need to sample 3 surfaces and display in profile view. Due to the clients requirements for display, using the cross section tools don't work for me, so I have resorted to using a seperate alignment for each cross section.

Example 2: Working in a subdivision with many utility alignments it would save quite a bit of time to be able to choose a group of alignments and sample multiple surfaces in just a few clicks.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: One Baseline With Multiple Alignments?

Feb 28, 2013

I am using Civil 3d 2012.  What I have is a surface along railroad tracks.  Each set of tracks has a different alignment because they aren't parallel.  I have a baseline alignment with my stationing set on that.  What I want to do is have one profile view showing the multiple track alignments based on the baseline alignment.  I can't use the offset alignment because they aren't parallel.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profiles Show Up Under Multiple Alignments

Jul 24, 2012

2012 SP2

I'm having a problem with profile shortcuts showing up under multiple alignments. I have 16-alignments and profiles in their own drawings. I didn't create the shortcuts right away as I was still figuring out how I wanted the project dir structure. When I had that solved, I started creating the shortcuts. When I checked them, some of the alignments had up to 6-profiles from other alignments listed under them. One alignment had 3-profiles, and not one of them was for the alignment.

I removed all the profile shortcuts and started bringing them in again. Same problem. This was after shutting C3D down, cleaning up the tmp files and restarting.

There are shortcuts for 36 other alignments, and none of them appear to be affected, only these last 16. Validate Data Shorcuts doesn't do anything.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: View Frames With Multiple Alignments

Jun 19, 2013

I am working on a water line replacement job in a residential neighborhood.  Some of the streets are getting the water line replaced and some are not.  I have created an alignment for the water line on the streets that are being replaced.  

When I create my view frame group along each alignment, there are some overlapping view frames from different alignments.  I need to create a matchline for these instances.  How to create matchlines for view frames on different alignments?  Or create one view frame group from different alignments?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Plan And Profile Sheets With Multiple Alignments In The View

May 3, 2013

When creating plan and profile sheets with multiple alignments in the view, what is a common practice in civil 3d?

- Data shortcut all alignments that are in the view into the plan and profile model

- Create a dwg that has all the alignments data shortcutted and xref that into the plan and profile dwg

- Create a dwg for each alignment and xref into an overall alignment dwg via attach and then xref the overall into the pp sheets dwg model.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surfaces In Multiple Files

Aug 7, 2013

How practical is it to create and manage surfaces across multiple DWG files?  One of the reasons I'm asking is some of our users are insisting their work can only done in a single file, resulting in massive DWG files and naturally, Civil3D slows to a crawl.  I'll admit I'm not a full time Civil3D user or specialist - thats not my job.  I'm reasonably certain it can be done from the most basic of research (which apparently nobody else wants to do...), but am Uncertain what the potential pitfalls are.

They complain of slowness and are requesting better computers from IT (I've talked them down to more RAM).  I'm trying to forestall a potentially nasty political situation spiraling out of control: they get better computers, others will want them as well and either get them only because of connections, or won't get them and are resentful for the perceived lack of importance.  We don't need people doing 2D schematic drawings on gaming rigs.

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 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 :: Combining Multiple Surfaces To Create Final Surface

Nov 28, 2012

I am creating my Final Grading surface with from 2 surfaces - a proposed road surface and a proposed grading surface.  (Note of roads within the road surface)

The issue is that when I paste the proposed road surface (that consists of several looped sections) over the proposed grading surface, the proposed grading surface within the looped road areas dissappears.

I have tried several options using boundaries for the inner looped areas on my road surface, and has altered my order of opterations for my final surface edits, and many other things also. 

I have attached an image for reference.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Referenced Surfaces And Alignments

Oct 29, 2013

We have a HUGE number of data referenced surfaces and alignments that need to be moved to a different group of folders.  Is there a simple way to do this without breaking the references (each surface/alignment) is referenced into multiple drawings.

The project was divided up into a bunch of little mini projects so now we have 500150_A, 500150_B etc (around 90 of them).  Each one has a dwg file with a surface and at least one alignment and that drawing is data referenced to all the other sheets within that mini project.  Each project has _Shortcuts, drawings etc.  

The powers-that-be have decided to 1) change the project number (from 500150 to 500152) and 2) to bring all these mini projects together into ONE project.

We've confirmed that each surface/alignment has a unique name which means that there shouldn't be a conflict in that regard.

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 Inventor :: Embossing Onto Multiple Surfaces

Dec 18, 2012

Is there any way of embossing onto

1. Multiple faces
2. surfaces that are not flat, cylindrical or conical

I have tried using the “stitch surface” command but I can’t seem to get it to select .

The surface was created using the loft command, but I don’t know how to select it as a composite surface . When I am doing the emboss. Maybe it has to be done using another method besides emboss?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Error - Importing Multiple Surfaces Results In 1 Composite Surface

Feb 16, 2012

When importing objects into Inventor, all surface objects are being joined together into 1 composite surface. What I need is multiple surfaces, or seperate surface/composite objects.

Capture 1

Shows 3 solids imported from Rhino

Each solid is a sepreate solid

Capture 2

Shows 2 solids and 1 surface composite imported from Rhino

Capture 3

Shows 1 solid and 1 surface composite imported from Rhino

1. Why is Inventor creating 1 composite from multiple non intersecting surfaces?

2. How can I avoid this from happening?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Autodrop Multiple Nuts After Autodropping Multiple Washers

Jan 26, 2012

(Inv Pro 2012, XP64, Vaulted Project and Content Center)When I'm placing hardware, the Autodrop function is really convenient.  Even better when the "multiple" pickbox is active, which from what I understand is when Inventor finds similar features on the same plane that the selected autodrop component could potentially mate to.

This is a huge time-saver, since I often have lots of bolted joints that all terminate on the same plane.  Sometimes however, even when the parts lie in the same "plane", the plane isn't contiguous in that a feature breaks it across.  No biggie, it just means I have to do two or three "multi-autodrops".

Once I put washers at the back side of the connections (which multiple works like a charm on), all of a sudden when I go to place nuts, each washer surface is now it's own plane, and multi-drop no longer recognizes all the other parts.  This can be a real pain manually placing 30 or 40 nuts at a time.

I think the "Bolted Connection" option might work, but I really don't have a need to store all those subassemblies, name them, keep them vaulted properly, etc.   That would be almost as much of a headache.

Also, most of the features that I'm connecting through are created as Hole features and as "nominal" oversized bolt holes as Inventor suggests when the "clearance hole" option is used for hole creation (not randomly extruded islands), but they aren't patterned as they don't follow a prescribed circular or rectangular pattern.

Am I missing something that I can do (like something stupid simple such as holding down the "alt" key or some crazy thing like that) that will allow inventor not just to suggest CONTIGUOUS planar features, but also CO-planar features so I can place all these nuts at once?

Short of creating a custom Content center part that consists of a nut / washer assembly I can't think of anything.  And creating and publishing the nut washer assemblies will eat up some time too, since I have about 50 different combinations (some SAE washers with normal hex nuts, some SAE washers with ESNA hex, some USS washers with jam nuts, some USS Type B washers with all-steel locknuts, etc...)

AutoCAD Inventor :: Part File With Multiple Instances Of Multiple Solids?

Apr 18, 2013

I'm designing a part that in Autodesk Inventor 2013 that is constructed from several layers laminated together. I have 4 layers:

F (front)

M1 (middle, variation one)

M2 (middle, variation two)

B (back)

The final solid will lhave 17 layers laid out like this:

F | M1 | M2 | M1 | M2 | M1 | M2 ... | B

I currently have a part file containing

F | M1 | M2

What's the best way to create this solid if I want to a) keep all instances of M1 and M2 in sync, and b) make it easy to work on all 4 layers. Do I have to export F, M1, M2, and B as individual parts and import them into an assembly or can I keep them in one part file? I really like the ability to be able to work on all the solids at the same time because they're visually dependant on each other.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 12 :: Running Script Multiple Times Produces Multiple Copies?

Sep 1, 2011

I have this script that basically makes a shape expand by adding an outline, conveting the outline to an object, and then welding the whole thing together.

I have the script set to execute with hotkey ctrl+numpad+

The odd thing is, when I run it once, it seems to work fine and only one object is left, but when I hold down ctrl and press numoad+ over and over again, it seems to produce a new copy of the object everytime.

I'm not sure why this is happening, but I need to get it to stop. 

Sub Expand()    EventsEnabled = False        'Dim vars    Dim c1 As New Color    Dim OrigSelection As ShapeRange    Dim OrigColor As Shape    Dim width1 As Double    Dim height1 As Double    Dim minSize As Double    Dim Thickness As Double        'copy color of current selection    Set OrigColor = ActiveShape    If OrigColor Is Nothing Then Exit Sub    If OrigColor.Fill.Type <> cdrUniformFill Then Exit Sub    c1.CopyAssign OrigColor.Fill.UniformColor        'get thickness to increase by    Set OrigSelection = ActiveSelectionRange    OrigSelection.GetSize width1, height1    If width1 <= height1 Then minSize = width1    If width1 > height1 Then minSize = height1    Thickness = minSize * 0.035        OrigSelection.SetOutlineProperties Color:=CreateRGBColor(0, 0, 0)    OrigSelection.SetOutlineProperties Thickness, ScaleWithShape:=True        'weld    Dim s1 As Shape    Set s1 = OrigSelection(1).Outline.ConvertToObject    Dim s2 As Shape    Set s2 = s1.Weld(OrigSelection(1), True, True)            'auto reduce    's2.Curve.Nodes.All.AutoReduce 0.001    's2.Fill.ApplyUniformFill c1        'delete remnants    OrigSelection.Delete    s1.Delete    'OrigColor.Delete            EventsEnabled = TrueEnd Sub
