AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Triangles Not Appearing In Object Viewer

Mar 7, 2013

Today I opened a file that has previously worked perfectly well, only to find that when I open my surface in Object Viewer and begin to rotate it manually, the triangles making up the surface do not appear. I have the contour lines and border (what is enabled in the Edit Surface Style/Display/Model tab) although the triangles (which should be displayed as well) do not appear. Other surfaces show like they should.

Is there another option other than the Edit Surface Style/Display/Model tab and the VISUALSTYLES command?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Object Viewer Image Of Surface

Aug 15, 2013

I have used the object viewer of my surface and selected conceptual visual style.  I save the image as a .png file for a presentation.  Is it possible to have the area that there is no surface to be black and not white?  Other than opening it up in paint?

see attached.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Reduced Maximum Length For Surface Triangles Causes Surface Holes

Oct 22, 2012

Has instances where you set your tolerance for the maximum triangle lenth to say 50m to reduce the amount of triangles along the edge that run at long distances. When I do this I end up with multiple surface holes and I'm not sure why as there are points in the area.

I thought well maybe it's because i should've reduced my max triangles first then added breaklines. Would this matter? I also thought I could add a line to the surface to fix the holes vs. deleting surface lines along the entire edge of a surface for many many miles.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Drawing Triangles Across Breakline

Jan 6, 2014

i am trying to add as a breakline. i have not been able to get this particular line to work as a breakline and the surface keeps drawing triangles through the line like its not even there. The figure properties show that it is a breakline. The figure prefix database brings the line style in as a breakline from the start.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Added Featurelines To Surface As Breaklines - Triangles Still Crossing

Mar 25, 2013

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Object Viewer Pivot Point

Oct 5, 2012

I have some objects (corridor / intersection corridor / surface / grading ...)  in civil 3d 2013...When we rotate the 3d objects , object rotate pivot point  about (0,0,0,   or any place x,y,(z=0)..So rotated 3d object (if the Z= High value)  can't be seen / can be seen as a point.

how to change the object viewer pivot point ? (not using steering wheel or zoom extents  because of first time rotating objects seen so far )

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Change Settings In Object Viewer?

Nov 29, 2012

Any way to change the setting in Object Viewer that will let you orbit around the cursor instead of the center of the screen? In object viwer, orbit is only constrained around the middle of the screen. To me, it would make sense to have it rotate around the cursor like in model space.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Printing Hypsometry - Surface Not Appearing

Jul 21, 2012

I'm trying to print the hypsometry but when I do it, the surface doesn't appear. The problem is the same with other types of elevations.

I checked the layers properties, but it doesn't seem to be the problem as all the layers are printables.

I can print the hypsometry in the model space.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Feature Lines / Surfaces And Object Viewer

Jul 19, 2013

When I use Object Viewer to look at just feature lines and surfaces, the feature lines do not appear at the same elevation as the surface as I shift the view around.  Why is that- especially since I am looking at the surface I created from those same feature lines? 

is that a feature, intended to make it easier to discern the feature lines in Object Viewer?  Or a quirk of my video card?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Object Viewer - Realistic Style - Loss Of Quality

May 2, 2012

For some reason, when I view my corridor in Realistic mode in object viewer, all the rendering has changed colours and quality of the textures etc.

It used to display just fine and I am wondering what has caused this? Is it a Driver issue?

I have attached an image of what it looks like now. As you can see the quality is really poor and the colours are wrong.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Network Structure Not Showing In Object Viewer

Mar 6, 2013

I've been using pipe network in Civil 3D for some time now and all I can say is I can't wait for them to rewrite it!

I've had acouple of problems with some of the default parts for the UKIE template which I have managed to fix manually but there is stil one problem I can't seem to solve. For some reason my type E manholes show up in plan and section but don't show at all in object viewer. I've even tried to create a new drawing and place a new network but again the same thing happens.

I've tried going into part builder, validating it and saving it, reload the catalog etc. just incase.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multi View Blocks Displaying Incorrectly In Object Viewer And Paperspace

Apr 30, 2013

I'm pretty new to using multi view blocks and rendering etc etc... basically all I want to do is show my surface (lake and landscaping) as grass, show a clear blue hatch to represent the water line and add some multi view blocks.. people and trees...

Using the multiview blocks toolpalette I have dragged and dropped some blocks into model space and ensured they are at the correct elevation to sit on the surface...

I have noticed that only one of the multi view blocks within the landscape tab is showing as I would expect - the rest all look like an extruded cross... I don't know how to fix this or whether this is correct.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Project Object To Surface / Volume Calcs

Jul 30, 2013

see attachment (object viewer capture). The top surface is my OG, the bottom surface is the bottom of excavation for a building. I want to project the perimeter of the building footprint up to the OG surface at a 1:5 slope. I remember in LDD the perimeter of a building, berm, dam, ditch...could be projected to the OG with specific slopes and then you could create a surface with the projected lines and do a volume calc. between the two. What is the procedure to do this in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Get Alignment Object From Data Referenced Corridor Surface

Oct 25, 2012

is it possible to get the alignment name which the corridor surface is built from when the surface is being data referenced. in other word no corridor as the middleman.

the way i see it is when corridor suface is referenced, it becomes a regular surface and loses some properties such as parent alignment.

i am still using COM. maybe .net can do it? either way works.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Triangles Not Seeing Break Lines

Apr 17, 2012

Putting in a simple berm crest, and the triangles skip right over a certain section. Swap edge does nothing and adding points seems to make things worse. I have been able to fix this problem before, but only by deleting my surface and then putting all the pieces back in at once. Then it's perfect. 

I think part of the problem may be that the "Contour help" I put in at the blue major contours is screwing things up.I have had the same issue when putting in down-slope channels as well.

An error message I get is "reading triangles from file" and the program locks up to where you need to do a reset on the computer. I have an existing ground surface that is data shortcut into the file I am opening when I get this error. The existing ground surface is about 5 mg in size. I'm not sure if this is causing the error.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: When Surfaces Cross Or Pass Close To Each Other Some Extra Triangles Show Up

May 8, 2013

I used the function paste to combine three surfaces in one. It could represent a highway. I noticed that when surfaces cross or pass close to each other some extra triangles show up trying to stitch together the surfaces. I can not find an option that can stop this, eg "not create extra triangles". Why these extra triangles occur? Can you limit it?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Delete Triangles Versus Adding Outer Boundary To Eliminate Them

Oct 1, 2013

When cleaning up a surface, I've always created an Outer Boundary to define the surface limits so that the triangles wouldn't go where I didn't want them.

I'm trying prepping in hopes of sitting for my Autodesk Civil 3d Certification exam at AU.  The chapter I'm currently reading through talks about deleting triangles from the surface.

So now I'm wondering about the pros and cons of both methods.
