AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Sheet Profile View - Linetype Generation

May 26, 2009

In the sheet profile view the sampled(existing ground) profile for all 3 profiles does not generate the correct linetype(sample 1). The design drawing that I created the individual sheet from displays it correctly (sample 2). The preferences show it is generating(sample 3), it’s just not displaying correctly in the sheet itself.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Profile Linetype Generation

Dec 9, 2013

I have a drawing with surface profiles and the linetype generation is working on some and not the others. They're all dynamic and they're not dref'd in and like I said, a few with the same style look correct and a few are incorrect.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Survey Figure (linetype Generation) TOGGLE On And Off?

May 23, 2013

I am happy that survey figures now have the long awaited "linetype generation" on in 2013 but sometimes I need it off. Is there a toggle or am I now STUCK with it on all the time?

AutoCAD .NET :: Selecting Closed Polylines With Linetype Generation Enabled?

Sep 5, 2013

I have a piece of code that needs closed polylines.

I use the following selectionfilter to filter the selection so I can only select closed polylines:

Dim sf As New SelectionFilter(New TypedValue() {New TypedValue(0, "LWPOLYLINE"), New TypedValue(70, 1)})
Today I noticed that in some drawings this filter won't select all the closed polylines for me.

After some experimenting I found the 'linetype generation' property of the polylines to be the problem. If this is enabled the above filter will not let me select a closed polyline. If I disable it, there is no problem.

How can I make my code for selecting closed polylines more robust? Is there a 'TypedValue' for closed polylines with the linetype generation enabled?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Linetype Off On Profile From Exist Surface

Jul 3, 2012

I Created a profile from existing surface and created a layer called "PRO-EXISTING" and set linetype to "HIDDEN". I also set my standard style to display linetype "BYLAYER"  but my dashes are not even like polylines when plinegen is "ON"

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Reference Surface Profile Linetype

Aug 27, 2012

I have a drawing with multiple profiles.  We originally had an existing and finished ground surface in the drawing, but decided to use a data shortcut to the surfaces as the design kept changing. We deleted the old surfaces from the drawing, and created the data references, using the same surface names for the new referenced surfaces. 

The ground lines show up in the profile, but I can't get it to show the linetype I need for the EG surface (dashed).  It doesn't act like a typical profile line - it now shows a lot of PVI points, and plinegen settings have no effect.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Base Structure Profile Label Location On Top Of Profile View

Nov 4, 2013

I'm working with a structure profile label style and it seems like the only way to anchor the position of the label is based on offsets from the structure itself... Any way to position the label based on the top of the profile view, so that I could make all of my labels horizontally aligned above the profile view?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: No Profile Is Drawn In The Profile View - Update

Jul 24, 2012

I have yet to produce a profile. I created a polyline and turned it into an alignment.

Looking at alignment Sample(3), I see that it is not superimposed over your surface. The polylines are, but the alignment is not. That will disallow creation of a surface profile.

Is the sample5 an alignment that sits on the surface? how come there is still no profile?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Profile Not Shown In Profile View

Nov 28, 2012

Attached are survey points that created the surface of a road embankment portion that caved-in. The road is very near a reservoir  shoreline. 

1. How can a surface profile be produce? I/'ve use line to change it into an alignement and then create a proile , then a profile view. But the the surface profile is missing. 

2.the points having higher elevation are the  top edge( road level) of the cave-n . A few few shots were take before the shorline elevations.

3. What the best way to come up with the rock volume to fill the cave-in given this surveying points., Also the shoreline elevation will be lowered some more while work is being done since the fill is not allowed to fall in the reservoir.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Shifted Profile Within Profile View?

Jan 22, 2013

I have an issue with a profile referenced into a plan sheet that is shifted when I view it in the plan sheet viewport.  The profile stationing is correct in the profile dwg file and in the plan sheet dwg it is referenced into.  But when I switch from model space to paper space in my layout sheet (the file the profile dwg  is referenced into) the profile moves to the wrong station within my profile view in paper space.

The profile start station is 0+00, but it shifts to -1+00 within the viewport of my layout sheet.

The scales are the same between the dwg files (50) and the Annotation scale matches the dwg scales.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: No Profile Is Drawn In The Profile View?

Jul 24, 2012

I am a C3D newbie who used  ground survey points  (Serrano_EG_surface)  that  generated a Civil 3D surface. The white line is consist of arc segments that I turned into polylines and then  into individual CL alignments. The first alignment ,which has its left and right offsets   do not generate the profile view that I needed to be created. There was a prompt asking for a profile to choose, but I don't know where in the drawing or in the propector panel to click on.

1. Are the ground survey points good enough  so that any alignments over the those areas can provide me a surface profile, a design profile, cross sections every 50 feet, so that I can submit a  preliminary drawing for environmental permitting. ?

2. When I check the object browser,  the aligments preceding each other are not in the same elevation it seems. Do I have to to transform each of the polylines first into a 3d polyline and then an alignment so that I can create a profile.

3. Eventually , I wish to connect all these alignments to model a 1.5 mile rural road (more like an access road to a water reservoir).

4. What's a best techniques to keep track of modeling a road.This question pertains to e.g the object browser as one of the useful aid. I've also used the inquiry tool but not used it for its full potential.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Mark Items In Alignment View To Display In Profile View?

Dec 20, 2012

I was wondering if after drawing an alignment, creating a profile, and profile view, is there a way I can mark items along the alignment so they could show up in the profile view.  I am laying out a pipeline and want to have the profile display a marker for items such as tees, elbows, reducers and other items.  The marker I would like to use will be something like the vertical style grade break markers.

Also on a side note, as each of these items will have a different name, is there a way that I can add these markers and then have each one with a unique name?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile View Empty Or Missing - Cave-in - Section View

Nov 28, 2012

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

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Working Back And Forth From Plan View And Profile View

Jan 18, 2013

I was given a horizontal centerline of a 5 mile bike path. We have to stake all the even stationing every 50 feet and all the VPC's and VPT's with vertical elevation. I have created the horizontal profile and also the vertical profile including all the vertical curve information. Is there an easy way to incorporate the elevation information back into the plan view so I can create points that carry x,y & z points that I can transfer out of autocad as a .txt file so we can upload it on our gps equipment?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Plan And Profile Sheet Production

Nov 30, 2011

I am having a "problem" with creating plan and profile sheets due to the large level differences in my profile. The plan and profile sheets are produced but the profile gets chopped off and I can't figure out how to get around it short of manually creating the sheets (which is a bit counter intuitive given Civil 3D's capabilities)

Is there a way of getting this to work??

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Set Profile View Stations?

I am using the profile sample program to create an alignment, profile view and profile.  The profile view defaults to start at station -0+25.  I want to set the Profile View starting station based on the "Align_strt_sta" value I have defined based on the Alignment Stationing.  I have tried the .StationStart() shown below, but I just get a unhandled exception. 

' Create the profile view and add it to the alignment's ' collection of profile views. If oProfileView Is Nothing Then id = ProfileView.Create(m_CivilDoc, Prof_View_Name, PROFILEVIEW_BANDSET_STYLE_NAME, Align_Name, pviewposition) oProfileView = pviewTransaction.GetObject(id, OpenMode.ForWrite) End If 'oProfileView.StationStart() = Align_Strt_Sta oProfileView.Description = "Profile view of alignment '" & m_SampleAlignment.Name & "'" oProfileView.StyleName = PROFILE_VIEW_STYLE_NAME
