AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Section Views (Assembly And Corridor)
Aug 8, 2012
I am doing public works type project. A simple road widening project. I created an alignment, surface, profile view and basic road assembly (from tool palettes) and corridor.
I created a corridor and referenced it to my "profile view", "alignment" and to "basic road" assembly. When I created section views, it shows only existing grade based on the surface and the basic road assembly is not showing on my sections. I can't figure out how to do it.
I created a base drawing for sections that references an alignment. I xrefed in the drawing where my corridor was created. When I create the section views, the corridor shows up perfectly.
I then created a blank sheet and xrefed in my section view base drawing.In this sheet drawing, only parts of the corridors are visible.I have a C&G on one assembly and a shoulder on another assembly that aren't visible. (see pics)The first pic is my section base drawing.
I am attempting to create section views from a corridor. I have about 80 sections total that I would really like to stack 3 high...then just across the page. Any step by step that make this process easy to understand?
Right now I get 10 high then across the page (using 'draft' option). I've tried to make a dwt at a 10 scale, (setting the viewport at 10 scale and viewport as a 'section' in the properties), but when I use that, the sections start overlapping (this is using the 'production' option).
Is it possible to have XS sampled assemblies displayed on individual cross sections? I know that the sample line group properties control which assemblies are sampled and displayed. Say that assemblies A,B and C are sampled and displayed on sections from 0+00 to 3+00. Can ONLY assemblies A and B be displayed on sections from 1+50 to 2+00, and A.B and C on everything else?
I have created section views of my allignment and corridor in my drawing the problem I have is. In some of the section views there is different parts of the different assemblies not showing up. For example in one section I have my lane then my curb then no sidewalk then blvd. It is not the same in each section view either some are missing one thing while others are missing others.
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 problem with point codes in section views in civil3d 2013. They are not showing at all. Drawing was made in civil3d 2012 and all point codes with defined styles were displayed correctly in section views and now they are all gone. Just link codes are shown. Is there something in setup of code styles that has to be changed?
Even if i set up new code and new label style it does not show up in section view after rebuild. Just in assembly.
If i do the same for link label it does show both in assembly and in section views.
I've got a corridor where the section editor does not show a section that the corridor has created. My frequency is set to 25' with high/low points along curves. At station 22+75, in the model space the corridor shows a section being created (image #2). However, I cannot edit or even see that section in the section editor (image #1). The first screen shot shows the list of stations for the corridor in the editor while the second screenshot shows the model space at the problem station. This is in the middle of a region, so there shouldn't be any issues with other assemblies or regions.
In the section editor, Sta 22+74.91 is listed, skips 22+75, then lists 23+00. I am needing to manually adjust the cross slopes of my lanes. If I view the surface there is a weird dip because at station 22+75 the default slope of my lane is -2%. I cannot edit station 22+75, so I cannot adjust the cross slope of the lanes.
What is causing the section editor to not even recognize a section? How can I edit the cross slope at station 22+75 if the editor doesn't even display that section?

I have lots of section views with some surfaces and pipes. Unfortunately, in a number of section views pipes are not shown in full height because the section view level range is too little. What I am wondering is - is it possible to automatically adjust section level ranges so that they fully include pipe sections? Please see also the image in the attachment.
In my section editor my labels show up correctly and in all the locations I want. But then, in my cross section file, I look in my section views and they are completely different. When I try to label more points under the Code Set Styles, they won't even show up on my section views.
how label only the top of my road surface in section view? The road slopes -2% towards a ditch but my my code set labels both the top of road(-2%) and what I assume is the bottom of the road surface (2%) which I don't want to show.
Is it also possible to label my side slopes as 4:1 instead of 25%?
I am trying to create section views to track beach erosion. I have created an alignment and sample lines successfully. The shorter sections look as they should. The longer sections are a mirror of themselves (ex: a section that should be 529' in length is drawn as 1058'). Is this a matter of needing to create a corridor and going the other processes that normally have to be done for a road or is there something else I am missing here?
I'm working with civil 3d 2012,I'm trying to find a solution for the following problem,in Civil I have an alignment of 2kilometer and they want a section view every 5 meters,
automatically I can create over 500 section views, no problem there,but then I want to plot these 500 section views to a png file,and to do that I need to get all of them in separated layouts, for which there also is an automated function but its stops at 255 layouts,I've done 4 km in split up drawings..I've got 40km left no option splitting it up in 1 km sections.
When creating a Corridor Section Points Report using the Toolspace>Toolbox>Reports Manager in Civil 3D 2012, the stations get listed but only a few contain point information (see attached).
I am trying to generate stake-out data for a proposed road. I was able to get this report to work successfully in one of the Civil 3D tutorials, so I assume that nothing is wrong with the utility. The problem may be related to my corridor.
When I open the Corridor Section Editor, the Ribbon changes to the Section Editor ribbon, but the section window doesn't come up. If I pan around, parts of the drawing disappear. If I close the editor and regen, everything comes back.
I have a single corridor "section" that extends from the 'tip' of my cul-de-sac back to the start of the alignment.I scoured the group before posting and didn't see anything quite the same.Would it have something to do with the corridor line being parallel to the alignment?
Using 2012, latest SP. I have a master drawing @ 1:500 with alignment, prof's, corr, etc. I have a second drawing @ 1:200 to be used for section views. I've data referenced the alignment, prof's, srf's, etc. I've created the section views in the section view dwg and xref'd the master dwg.
My problem is that the corridor model will not display in section views anywhere along a spiral in the 1:200 dwg. It displays fine everywhere else along the alignment. Just not spirals.
I have section views in the master drawing that will display the corridor just fine in section view at these same stations along the spirals.
I have the task of creating elevation views of a site. These views require that the model be clipped along a section line to crop the forground so it doesn't obstruct the view of the site.
I've experimented with the section plane tools in the 3D modeling workspace but I can't get a section view. I suspect it is because they don't work with C3D surface objects. Any workflow for this task? Ultimately I need to generate hard copies of the views for the architect to use for his landscape plans.
