AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Update Intersection Regions And Rebuild Corridor
Apr 5, 2012
I have 5 intersections in a drawing and i try to update all the intersections regions one after the other with "Update Regions and Rebuild Corridor". The problem is that sending up to date some intersections send other intersections (previously updated) out of date. So i cannot have all my intersections updated. The only way i found to correct this is to "Update regions automatically". but this way i cannot make changes to regions manually.
I had a corridor built with a CulDeSac on a side access road. Problem I was running into was the daylighting from the assembly on curve so I finally decided that I needed to move the CulDeSac 20 feet further down the road. I deleted the CulDeSac region and when I did that the Final Grade for the EOPs profiles were deleted with it. I then moved the EOP alignments (Left & Right side) 20 feet further down the road and readjusted the start and ending of the alignments. Then went back to the existing grade profiles of the EOP alignments and redrew in the Final Grade profiles. I added back in the Regions for each Baseline and set the targets to Road CL Alignment and Final Grade Profile. These are the exact same steps I took originally to build the CulDeSac the first time and it worked great. Now it won't even build the CulDeSac.
When I deleted the region the FG of the EOP disappeared, but actually still showed in the Toolspace so the new FG profiles with same name were seconds/duplicates. Once I saw that I deleted the originals from Toospace and renamed the duplicates and used them for the Baselines.

My road corridor regions can't be stretched using the region grips when 'geometry locking' is on, grip stretch works when i change the locking option to 'station locking', but it used to work fine also with geometry locking on.. It has happened somehow to all my files, so it seems to be caused by some application setting, the corridor regions can be stretched from grips fine on other pc's. (C3d 2013)
I have a site access road that extends from highway into site and then loops around and intersects with itself. Would like to keep this as one alignment in order to make Super Elev and master alignment easy to control across project team.
Issue is, we would like to use Intersection wizard at the intersection but cannot, as we ony have one alignment. We could model the intersection the old way, using kerb returns with design profiles, but as the design is still in early stages the intersection is likely to be frequently revised.
how we could utilise intersection wizard in this scenario?
I have 2 roads crossing, and I have created the 2 corridors, and an intersection object created. I split the 2 corridor regions and put the intersection in, and then closed back in the regions to the start of the intersection object (region). Now - how do I make that all one corridor object that reacts to either of my profiles, and is only one corridor surface? - the corridor surface ignores my region boundaries Or at least 3 objects that interact with each other properly. Image 1 highlights the start/end of the corridor regions, and image 2 shows how the surfaces look - why doesn't the corridor surface start and end where the regions do?
I have a parameters only part which drives the parts in an assembly. When I change the parameters and go back into the assembly I am getting an error. I can accept the error and drag the parts around and they snap into place, which ends the error. It works, but isn't very appealing to the eye. Is there any way to fix this?
I have a corridor that uses the Urban Sidewalk subassembly along the streets. During my rough design phase I set the outside boulevard widths to 2.00, and create a corridor surface using the Top Links as breaklines. I then do my lot grading, using that surface as a surface pasted into my FG surface. All of my side yard swales go up to the edge of the corridor's boulevard, with the elevation set 0.20 below the corridor surface. Once all of the design is done, I go back to the corridor and change the boulevard width to 0, thus forcing those side yard swales to now go up to the back of walk.this creates a small depression where we place small drain inlets.
Herein lies my problem, when I change the boulevard width from 2 to 0, the corridor surface never changes to reflect the 0' width. It's as if the break lines that I told the surface to use from the Top links are holding fast. The ONLY way I have been able to get the surface modeled correctly is to completely delete the corridor surface and create a new one and recreate the boundary, which I then need to re-paste and move to the top of the Edits in my FG surface. Just deleting and readding the Top Links from the corridor surface definition does not solve this.
the corridor-created breaklines do not get revised when the corridor changes, and cannot be edited/deleted by the user. Perhaps I am doing, or not doing, something that is forcing these breaklines to persist..
How do i get the feature lines in my corridor to change their style based on the code set style selected?Whats the point of defining featureline styles in the code set style if they don't change in the corridor? They only get used when you first create the corridor?
Is there something I am missing or is this the intended workflow?
I am trying to create an intersection design using the Intersection Tools in C3D 2012. I followed the steps in the tutorials, created a corridor on the major road, splitted the regions, created the intersection and added it to the major road corridor, and connect the regions with the intersection portion.
I used the same assembly throughout the design just for simplicity, however, i notice that there are gaps of curb between the curb return section and the through section (as outline in red rectangles).
I am working on a project where some of the corridors require different daylight slopes. I need to transition between a region with 2:1 slope to a 10:1 slope. My local civ3d support said something about using grading tools to achive that.
What I understood was that my assemblies should not have any daylight sub-assembly and that i should grade the corridor and than add a transition zone between the different gradings. Did I understand correctly?
Copy a corridor successfully? I'd like to try this just a little worried about the explosion of evil this may cause to my Civil 3D session.
Even all the properties of the corridor setup from one to another would be useful. I'm building one corridor and an 2nd one that matches everything except I need to replace my Assembly with one meant for stripping.
My corridor surface is not matching my corridor top links. see attachments. this is affecting my volumes!
The section-plan(surface red).png is showing the section editor and the plan view. the red highlighted line in section is the corridor surface and as you can see in plan view the surface is incorrect and wiggly.
The pdf is all my sections with the red linework being the corridor surface.
I would like to add a Rebuild Surface command to my Ribbon Modify Panel. I would also like to have it included in my Right Click menu after a surface is selected. There doesn't appear to be any way to initiate a surface rebuild from the command line and I don't find a command for it in the CUI editor.
There does seem to be a rebuild command in the API but I am not a programmer. Is this possible without programming?
2012. I have contours from a corridor merged into a full surface. I labeled the contours, then had to rebuild the corridor after the profile changed.
The contour labels all vanished and had to be redone. While surface contours work well for roadway corridors with few intersecting roads. I am not finding them to be useful for parking lots. I am thinking I will have to go back to the extract all contours from model and neaten them up for acceptable graphic presentation, then label them using the label line function and pray they don't change. i.e. old LDD work flow.
The automatic outside boundary also does not work well when updating parameters and rebuilding. The old fashioned LDD boundary from polyline seems to work better most of the time.
As seen in the attachments, I am trying to crop an image. When I do, a black portion of the old photo still remains. This is for some pamphlets and having this black region around the photo looks odd. How to get rid of these black regions around a photo after cropping?
I have some code that edits the breaklines of a surface. Everything works correctly, except for the surface rebuild when finished.At the end of the command I use:
But when the command completes I still need to manually rebuild the surface to see the result of my command's edits. This is in both 2013 & 2014. I shouldn't need to do this and was just wondering why the Rebuild() method doesn't always work.
Also, is it possible to toggle the Automatic Rebuild option for surfaces in code?
What is the best way to relocate and intersection (created with the wizard) from 43+00 to 40+50? I dragged the alignment but the return baselines don't seem to come along for the ride. Would it be better to bite the bullet and redo it?
I am "trying" to design a intersection that contains four lane divided road. Northbound and Southbound lanes are 2% normal crown with a curbed median. I have alignments for each crown. The intersecting road is not crowned. This road is a retrofit so I am limited quite a bit so the intersection wizard is out. We're going old school with this one.
I need a style for intersection of alignments that automatically includes the abbreviations for Point On Tangent (POT), Point On Curve (POC), etc. I can create a style with the basic information of Station, Alignment Name, but adding the POT, POST, etc. in front of all alignment’s stationing and name doesn't seem available still in Civil 3D 2011.
I m trying to create an intersection between two roads. See the attached jpeg. When i open the corridor properties i receive an error message which i don't understand. It seems like civil 3d has problem with the order of the regions. Also the corridor sections intersects in the area that i have place a remark "problem". I m trying to correct it manual but when i rebuilt intersection then it overlaps my manual correction
issue with my Corridor. It involves the intersection of a main road alignment and a secondary road. Thing is my main road has a 6' shoulder whereas my secondary road doesn't have a shoulder at all. I used the Intersection Wizard to create the Intersection, but the two templates don't align. Without the shoulder the ditches don't line up. I tried drawing a polyline between the two ditches and targeting it and that worked, but then realized that going from 6' shoulder to no shoulder wasn't working either so when I tried to target a polyline from the 6' shoulder to the edge of pavement all kind of stuff happened that didn't make sense to me.

I have a problem modeling intersection. This is first time I am modeling intersection. I have gone thru' and actually did all intersection tutorials offered by C3D and naturally I felt like I am ready for it.
But in real world I am not. I am trying to model intersection and I keep getting error as "Value on Wrong side of alignment to profile". I looked at target mapping and thinks so that all is okay (may be not). I am attaching snapshot of error message as well as plan view. I wanted to forward actual dwg but size is too large to post.
Point to note:This is Left lane driving setting. I realized this after I created alignment/profile/assemblies but before I tried intersection modeling.
I would like to know how it would be possible to manipulate the Intersection Wizard so that I can obtain the required shape as drawn by the architect. In essence create a "round about" shape. see the attached image for furhter detail.
