AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Slope Labels - Rise:Run Custom Labels?

Dec 27, 2013

I am trying to create a surface rise:run slope label for our company template file.  I have it set using the default values that I want.  But right now the text is just 1:1...where we want it to read 1V:1H.

how I can keep the label dynamic to the surface, but put the V & H in the label after the values.?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Path Array For Slope Labels?

Apr 4, 2012

I have a polyline defining a proposd wind farm access track and I have offset it 10m each side. I have then dreated a slope label between the southernmost end points which gives the existing ground slope at right angles to the centreline. I created the Array (as shown in arrayed.jpg) and it looked good but after hitting enter there were only three labels (after enter.jpg)

I did a rectangular array of slope labels with no problem at all so what's wrong with the way I'm doing the path??

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Slope Labels For Feature Lines Projected To Profile

Sep 21, 2011


Say you have a feature line in plan view and you project it to profile view. Is there a way to label the true slope of the projected feature line segments in profile?

The profile view depth labels are not accurate since it's simply calculating the length from station to station in profile.

...and of course this does not correspond to the true segment length since the feature line is not parallel to the alignment.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Spanning Pipe Labels Calculating Incorrect Slope

Oct 30, 2013

I notice issues using spanning pipe labels for the first time recently after having used them for years.  The slope calculated by the spanning pipe label is completely wrong.  I've attached a picture in which Labeled two pipes connected by a null structure.  The two labels on the bottom are the pipes labeled individually at 3.53% and 3.34%.  When labeling them as a spanning pipe, if I choose the downstream pipe first and them the upstream pipe it shows me a slope of 0.48%.  If I choose the upstream pipe first, then it gives me 2.88%.  Either way it's wrong.

As I was writing this I decided to check and see if the pipes were flowing the same direction (Start to End or End to Start).  Turns out they weren't.  After flipping one of the pipes around so that they both are laid out in the same direction (Start to End from Upstream to Downstream) the label now reads 3.37%, which is correct.

Seems like an the label should honor the flow direction of the pipe, no matter if they have been laid out in opposite directions or not.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Why Does Not Consider Curve Labels As A Part Of Alignment Labels

May 3, 2013

I think it is normal to want a style showing stationing, speed design stattions, etc.But.... Radii of curves ? Clothoid parameters ? 

Why is the reason Autodesk developers think that designers dont want to see this information instead of "add labels, aligments, multiple segments,. etc .... 

(aligment by aligment ...... of a whole project ?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Elevation Labels

Jun 26, 2013

I have a drawing that someone else created that has a spot elevation label for a surface. It labels the surface (PAD) then automatically subtracts a set distance for another elevation (GFE) and adds a set distance for another elevation (FFE). After doing some research, it looks like it was created with an expression?

I have two questions:

First, where to go to get a better understadning of this? I'm not familiar with expressions.

Second, where can I find the expression in drawing to make an edit to the set distances. I can remove the GFE/FFE as they are separate components in the label style, but I don't see where to modify the distance it adds or subtracts.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Elevation Labels

May 3, 2012

We work with Hydro graphic surveys that have large numbers of points. We would like to be able to display girded spot heights colored to represent the elevation. (Similar to elevation banding)

I have created a surface and then created surface elevation points on a grid with spacing of 15m. I have tried looking at setting up a style  that will adjust the color depending on the elevation ie 0 to -1 = red but haven't made any progress.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Same Surface Contour Labels On Different Layers

Mar 29, 2012

So I have an existing grade surface and I am laying out a number of different site designs.  I've got all my surfaces from those site designs on different layers each displayed in a different layout. I need to label existing contours on each layout in different places. I've setup additional contour label styles (two for each design, major, and minor) and layers (two for each design, major, and minor). However, when I add labels to my existing surface, they come in on the right layer, but whenever I freeze any of the many layers my contour labels are on, they all turn off. The only workaround I can figure is to make copies of my existing surface for each design option and label each independantly. However, this is inacceptable as far as data management goes, since my one file will be hundreds of megs with all those surfaces.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Section Labels From Surface Features Lines

Jun 27, 2012

Often we  build a design surface from feature lines and possibly a grading or two. Then we cut sections.

Now, for set out, and especially for smaller contractors who don't have fancy survey gear, it would be really nice to be able to show design surface levels in section bands BUT ONLY AT THE SURFACE-DEFINING FEATURE LINE LOCATIONS.

I am aware that we can use grade breaks...but this gives us band data at each triangle intercept which is too much data. We can weed this data, but that is indiscriminate and I really need only the data at the surface-defining geometry points (feature line locations.)

We can also use station/elevation labels on the section views but this is time-consuming and non-dynamic. Band labels are dynamic and more or less automatic...if only we could get the discrete locations we need labelled.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Default Methods For Adding Surface Labels?

Oct 25, 2013

I am placing a lot of suface slope labels in my drawing (as in hundreds).  The default settings force you to choose a surface, and then to place it by selecting 1-point /or/ 2 points.  The CAD default is the 1-point.  Is there a way to change this default to the 2-point so I dont have to change it everytime?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cut / Fill Surface Labels - Color Specific

Apr 29, 2013

I followed the steps I found online to create color-specific surface labels (I assigned red to the cut elev and green for the fill elev.), but when I display them using the spot elevation on grid, I am getting both red and green elevations on same point (they are both fill elev or cut elev.), and why are there two elevations (cut-red and fill green) displaying?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Make Sure Annotated Surface Labels Spot Elevations From 3D Design Drawing

Dec 19, 2013

How can I make sure the annotated surface labels spot elevations from my 3d design drawing which is being xrefed into a new Precise Grading Breakout Sheet plots screened?

The Label Style which I created for the annotated surface label spot elevations has all its properties set to be ByLayer for example its color and lineweight.  The Layer I assigned the Label Style was assigned to a layer with a color and plot style that should plot any object screened.  Color 8 and Plot Style Screened.

What other steps am I missing to assure myself that this Label Style will plot screened in my new Precise Grading Breakout Sheet?

I also made sure that the xref drawing in which this Surface spot elevation has the correct colors and lineweights and Plot Styles in my new Precise Grading Breakout Sheet.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Can't Get Scale Of Labels Right

Sep 12, 2012

I am trying to label my drawing (bearings and distances) and am having a bit of trouble. . First, the precision isn't right. I keep trying to set the precision but whenever I add a parcel label it comes up with the wrong precision. Also, I can't get the scale of the labels right. They are too big and I can't seem to size them down any smaller.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Labels 2

Sep 20, 2011

When generating a line of contour labels with Contour-Multiple, most of the labels are orientated properly but some of them on the line are rotated 180 degrees. Why aren't they ALL orientated in the same direction?

Also, sometimes, all of them will be orientated in the wrong direction such that they are, essentially, upside down. Is this a bug or is there a setting to adjust?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: IF Statements In Labels

Jan 12, 2013

I am trying to create a label for slope ratios. I want to have the label show only whole numbers if it is a whole number and go to the 10th place only when necessary. Is there a way to use the label editor to do this? I would think it would work something like

IF(<General Segment Grade>=0|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9 then <[General Segment Grade(FRun|P0|RN|AP|GC|UN|SD|OF)]> else <[General Segment Grade(FRun|P1|RN|AP|GC|UN|SD|OF)]>)

but I'm not even sure I'm going in the right direction.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Labels Are Not Rebuilding

Jun 4, 2013

I opened a project that i had not been into for a month and for some reason the surface and labels will not rebuild automatically anymore.  Surface is set to rebuild automatic and i've gone in and changed the regenauto from on to off to on again, also rebooted the computer with no luck.  I have a combination of feature lines and points.  If I edit the elevations along the feature line the contours do not rebuild and the label does not change either.  If I hover over the elevation node in the feature line it will show the new elevation but the elevation label for that point does not reflect the change, neither do the contours.  If it is a point and I change it with the panorama window, the elevation tag will change but the contours do not rebuild until I tell it to rebuild.  Any slope labels going to that point do not update with it though.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Clearing Tag Labels

Oct 17, 2012

I worked this out with C3D back in the day but for some reason I can't figure out how to renumber line tag label designations.  What's making it tougher is that I need to create the tags in a block and try to create the line table OUTSIDE the block (this is so that I can have the block rotated to a deed bearing with dynamic labels in the block while retaining it's true orientation from state plane coordinates in model space).  I have an old lisp file CLEARTAGS.lsp but this is not working.  Perhaps this was made for 2010 or earlier.  When I save the block, it jumps all the tag numbering way up for some reason.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Labels Not Next To Markers?

Aug 15, 2013

I seem to have a random, we'll say error for lack of a better term. I have a set of Point Styles with a Description Key set up for our survey points. When I import the points from a csv, I have 9 points that do not come in with the labels in the right spot. The label is supposed to sit next to the point style (see included image) Instead they sit 1 unit away. If you look at the included image you will see a point called COMH that is inserted correctly. Right above it is a point called WTMH that has the label coming in far to the right of the point style. Both the COMH and the WTMH have the same settings in the description key, and other than the block for the point, the same settings in the Point Style. I have completey re-written the description key, as well as re-created all the point styles, but this keeps happening. I have even re-created the block drawing and redefined the block in the dwt as well as an existing drawing.

P.S. I have added an image of the description key coding as well as the point style for the COMH andthe WTMH.
