AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Section Views

Dec 6, 2012

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?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Section In Full Height In Section Views?

Feb 20, 2013

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Section Sheets From Multiple Section Views

May 21, 2012

When i am creating section sheets from multiple section views ,section sheet  view port scale  changes.I did set it correctly in my template.

For example it changs from 1:150 to 1:150_1 

Then in section sheets scetions views are not displaying correctly.

When i change view port scale manually it shows correctly.But it should do to all sheets.

What should I do?

In model spacr multiple section views are showing correctly.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Section Editor Vs Section Views Labels?

Aug 12, 2013

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Can't See Corridor Section In Section Views Only Existing

Mar 5, 2012

I think I just haven't done this in a while and can't find the right setting.

I have existing sections.
I have section views.
I created a corridor.

How do I add the corridor section to my existing cross-section in the section views?

I can view them in the corridor section editor.  But I should also be able to add the corridor section to my section views, right?

To plot them, do I NEED to do this through Sheets Sets?  I don't have experience with sheet sets yet.

I don't use Civil 3D often enough anymore.  Still learning much about the new interface and pulling a design together.

Oct 1, 2012

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Section Views Of Models

May 17, 2013

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Corridor Assemblies In Section Views

Sep 25, 2012

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.

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Linktomarkedpoint Not Visible In Section Views?

Jul 16, 2012

I am working on a project that contains a main road with on both sides a bike path. From each of these thins I made a profile, alignment, etc. I made one assembly with two assembly offsets, each on one side of my main road. So far everything is going very well, but here comes my problem.

The two bike paths assembly (these are assembly offsets) I want to connect to my road assembly. I found some information about a "marked point" and the "Linktomarkedpoint" assembly. I placed the marked point on my edge of the road and placed the linktomarkedpoint on my bike path. Rebuilding my corridor and when I took a look in my sections, the line between the bike path and road ain't visible. I gave the marked point an unique name and the linktomarkedpoint I gave the same name as my marked point.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Inserting New Sections Into Section Views

Mar 9, 2012

I had about 20 cross sections that I created multiple section views for. I added 2 cross sections (one near the beginning, one in the middle).

Can I get these new sections to insert into their proper locations (by station) with a kind of refresh of my multiple section views without having to recreate multiple section views?

I already have the section sheets lined up in viewports on layout tabs.  I want to keep everything in the same place.  If the only way I can add the new sections is to create multiple section views again, what's the best way to handle this?  Draw some kind of cross-hairs in model space when picking where to generate them and pick on the same point every time?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cross Section Assembly Views

Aug 8, 2013

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?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multiple Section Views / Draft Option

Sep 5, 2013

When creating multiple sections using the draft option what settings control how the sections are placed? For example, 5 across, 4 down.

edit - I have several alignments. One that has 8 section views is created with 4 across and 3 down, another with 18 sections is created with 5 across and 4 down and a third with 34 is created with 6 across and down. I'd like to be able to control this if possible.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Data On Section Views Disappeared

Apr 8, 2013

I created some about 20 cross sections for a creek we topo'd and then went to work making the topo itself look presentable. After I was all done with that I noticed my cross sections had lost the surface data and were now just an empty grid.

When I go to edit a cross section's properties in the elevation tab the "Automatic" choice has a minimum and maximum elevation of 0. When I use one of those existing sample lines to create a single cross section the same thing happens, it's not picking up data from the surface. However, when I made a new sample line along the existing alignment it picked up the elevations and created a cross section just fine.

Is there anything I can do besides recreating all the sample lines and cross sections? I'm looking for any other way because I have already labled and put in some extra work on the cross sections and I'm hoping to be able to just recreate what I already did and drop them so it will match the linework I already did.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volume Tables For Multiple Section Views

Jan 23, 2012

I am working on a corridor project where I have to make section views of the road.  I created my sample lines by range of stations, and made all of my section views from there.  Now I need to add volume tables for each section view.

I have 28 section views, and more to come when I do another set of sample lines for another road, and I don't feel like going through each section view individually to make volume tables for them.

Is there a way I can create total volume tables for all of my section views at the same time?  It would save a lot of time!

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multiple Section Views - How To Amend Design

Oct 13, 2013

I have created multiple sections and produced drawings, but now need to amend the design and provide 1 additional section on the drawings. I added an additional sample line to the sample line group and then updated the secion view layout but the additional section did not show in the multiple section view. Is there a way to add the additional section to the existing multiple section view? or do I need to go through the process of deleting the current sections and creating a new multiple section view that includes the new sample line?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Multiple Section Views From A Corridor

Apr 16, 2012

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).
