AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Points Creation / Change Default Local Coordinates Permanently?

Sep 27, 2012

I often create points manually. You get that dialogue box where you choose the layer and the default local coordinates, etc etc.

The local coordinates setting always defaults to Northing/Easting. (ditto the grid coordinates).

I set it to Easting/Northing as is standard around these parts and do my points, but if I close the box, when I reopen it to add more points later, it is back to Northing/Easting.

I cannot find a variable to control this behaviour.

I never need points to have north first and would like it to default to Easting/Northing at all times. Yes I'm using the Metric template.

Is there a way to change this default?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Control Points Coordinates Of Nurbs Surfaces

Sep 6, 2013

Any way of viewing the coordinates of the Control Vertices (Control Points) of 3d or 2d  NURBS Surfaces. I tried to use the "properties" of the 3d NURBS surface that i designed but i could not find them anywhere..

i would also like to ask if it is even possible to export these coordinates to txt or even more to Excel.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Why Do Coordinates Change When Import Them In

Oct 22, 2013

My drawing settings is set for US Feet.  My Data Collector is set for US Feet.  I only import a txt file into the drawing.  My txt file coordinates match my Data Collector but never in the drawing.  We're only talking about hundredth but I don't understand why it changes in the first place. 


Point 1 in txt file & DC --- 10000N 5000E
but in drawing --- 9999.98N    4999.99E

Point 2 in txt file & DC ---- 9624.7230N, 4971.5346E
in drawing ----- 9624.7422N,  4971.5445E

AutoCad :: How To Change Coordinates To Meters

Dec 13, 2011

I recieved a drawing in which the coordinate values are a thousand times too high; they are in millimeters and I need them in meters. I checked the settings of the drawing, and it clearly says that it´s in millimeters, but it doesn't change the setting or to copy the whole drawing into a new file with meter settings.

How I can change the coordinates to meters?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: New Layer Creation

Mar 5, 2012

Some of my co-workers are having issues with layers. They create a new layer, choose a color and rename it and c;ose the ;ayer manager. When they reopen the layer manager, the new layer has reverted back to the color it started with. If they do it a second time, it works properly.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volume From Surfaces

Sep 6, 2012

i'm jumping into 3d late in life...playing with volumes. i've created surfaces from aerial surveys and have saved the surfaces as separate files. i would now like to run volumes of the two as they represent the same quarry site from different years. it appears (?) i need to have both surfaces listed in prospector to run volumes. each separate file has its own surface listed. do i get (import?) the second surface drawing into one of the files so i have both listed and can run volumes? i see where i can create a surface from importing a .tin file...but i don't see how to export the surface as a .tin file.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surfaces Are Not Updating

Feb 5, 2013

I am having a problem with my data shortcuts for my surfaces not updating. I have 2 surfaces (one ex and one prop) both are on auto-rebuild.  Both of them are in separate files and data short cutted into my profiles files (I have one for water, one sewer and a third for storm drains). Any time I make a change whether I add or subtract data the file the data does not update in the profiles. As a work around I have been creating a new data short cut and adding it to my profiles files. What am I doing wrong that would make them not update?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Point Group Creation

When point groups are deleted through the UI and then recreated via code with the same name the criteria such as the excluded point number list is included. It would be nice if it started with a clean slate once created and not keep around deleted point group.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Automatic Layer Creation

Jan 2, 2014

I am trying to get civil 3D to automatically create layers similar to ones already created. For example-

Using Description keys I am inserting survey points which automatically create layers for each type of point. e.g. p_building. I would also like a second layer to be created called l_building (for building lines) when the p_building layer is created. 

I realize I can create the layers and save as the drawing template but this is not a neat solution as you have to add every possible line layer (l_??) and then you will have a lot of empty layers as not all points are collected on each job.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Creation For Landfill

Mar 26, 2013

I'm using Civil 2012 to create a surface for a landfill. I have UTM coordinates, and my elevations range from about 71m to 115m. When I create my surface using the points, I check the Surface Properties/Statistics, it appears the X,Y & Z coordinates have been scaled down by 3 decimal places. I'm using UTM coordinates to create the points.


Min elevation = 0.071m .... should be 71m

Min X = 481.510m etc. ... should be 481510.99 or something similar. 

Units are set to meters.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Two Surfaces Do Not Interact

Jun 14, 2013

I'm trying to create a surface under my 'existing ground' surface. There is shallow rock where one of our projects is located and using geotechnical data I want to create a 'rock surface' at the known rock elevations. I just want this surface for visual reasons and do not want it to interact with the existing ground or pipe network.

I have 4 places along the roadway where I know the rock elevations. I created new points around each known point with the same elevation so there would be more than just four points on the surface and so I could make it the width of the road allowance. But when I look back to my profile of the road, it shows the existing profile drop to the rock surface at each place that I created points for the rock elevation. Not sure how to make it so the existing ground surface doesn't pick up the new points I added for the rock elevations.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Comparing Surfaces As A Visual

Oct 9, 2012

We will be doing some grading in a park with trees.  Probably maximum depth or fill of 12 inches.  The question has come up to be able to show cut and fill quantities as a visual shade of colors.  I have a way to display cut and fill ticks and it will give me the value, but that's not what they want.  I change the cut ticks to red and the fill ticks to green.  What is the best way to represent this like when you turn on slope percentages and assign different colors.  but I want like 0-2" fill to be red, 2" - 4" to be green, etc.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Correcting Surfaces / Contours

Nov 6, 2012

Im working in Civil 09. I need to adjust the surface I created in order for the contours to be correct. Right now I'm interpolating point elevations to adjust the contours. I find myself adding lines and adding and deleting points. It's tedious. I tried changing the grid spacing to smaller one. It didn't seem to work.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Corridor Surfaces And Superelevation

Feb 26, 2013

I have an alignement to which I have applied superelevation.

The superevation has been applied and the alignment has been annotation and it shows the change from camber to superelevation on  the curves.

However when I create a surface of my corridor it does not show the superelevation, the surface is showing a cambered alignment throughout.

I have created a new alignment, a new corridor and surface and still the same.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: LiDAR Generated Surfaces

Jan 14, 2011

I have recently upgraded to Civil 3D 2011 when we started receiving LiDAR data.  I have been playing around with the data a bit and have a few questions on how the data is dealt with.  It appears that when a point cloud is added to a surface, it is using the point cloud display somehow to generate the TIN.  I believe that the point cloud display is showing a percentage of points based on the maximum number of 1.5 million points.  On these particular datasets (citywide LiDAR coverage, about 2,600' x 2,600' panels), we may have 4-7 million points in each LAS file.  Is Civil 3D ignoring all points beyond 1.5 million in surface building operations?  Also, when adjusting the slider, is there any way to know which points will be displayed...or maybe the points are reduced randomly??
