I have created existing and proposed surfaces in Civil 3D 2008 and I'm trying to create a volume surface to produce a cut & fill map. The problem I'm running into is everything I try to follow mentions choosing Elevation Banding (2D) as the style. The only style I have to choose from is Standard. Does the Elevation Banding (2D) style normally come with the program? Or is this something you have to create?
I need to have a subassembly for a superelevation where the lane and base slope to the left and the bottom of the sub-base will slope to the right. I was using the LanSuperelevationAOR subassembly, which worked fine with my superelevation when the lane, base and sub-base were all sloping the the left, now I need to edit the slope of the sub-base only to slope back to the right at a -2%.

Recently I have purchased the above software to be installed on a 32 bit PC. However, the USB installation that came is 64 bit and the free trial on Autodesk website, although it offers the 32 bit, is also 64 bit.
It seems that the 32 bit version does not exist. Is there a way around this? I was hoping to download the 32 bit trial version and using the serial number and product key of the 64 bit.
I have a problem with exporting layers from dwg to pdf. Problem is that i can export (or print) drawing but i missing some layers in layer manager in pdf. I have drawing with 150 layers (from other co-workers) but only mine 4 layers doesn't appear. I have check in ACAD in layer prop manager if they are plottable but this is not a problem for content from those 4 layers are exported in pdf but not in layers they have to be (those layers are missing)!
I use ACAD 2012
edit: i found out that layers doesn't appear because contetnt on them are only blocks. for eg. block is on layer 1 but contetnt of block is on layer 2 so i see only layer 2 in pdf but not layer 1
When I try to create a new font style using the standard Autodesk Swiss fonts, I get the message "font file doesn't exist". I can see that the fonts are in the AutoCAD fonts folder and that I have a file path set to that folder.
I believe a dwg I am trying to access is affected by the acad.vlx virus as an alert comes up to check autodesk for solution (ID: TS13717811) however the published solution doesn't seem to work for the latest version of AutoCAD LT 2012 as it asks me to access a file in the support folder which doesn't exist on my system.
i have aprblem with the main icons of the ribbon, i install the program and it works correctly Suddenly the user interface converts to the normal autocad i tried to restore the ACAD.CUIX and doesn't work.
i have Win8, the version i have of the program is 2014 and the problem also happen on autocad architecture.
I've got a problem with a vertex on my model. When I go into the skin modifier or edit poly, this one vertex doesn't seem to exist. It doesn't show up and I cannot move it, yet in the skin modifier it is being affected by something. How can I get this vertex to reappear without completely borking my model's skinning?
I have profile sheets I set up using our template. If I plot the layouts one at a time. I can see the existing grade line in the plot. If I publish all of the layouts at once. The existing profile doesn't plot.
I've checked the layer freeze setting and made sure there is a defined page setup to use in Publish. It's the same setup they plot individually with. I get the same result if I plot directly to our Toshiba printer or to PDF using the CutePDF driver.
I am building a surface and started looking at the triangles and found that some are going to non-existant points. I have unfrozen, checked, etc. all of my points to make sure they are not in the drawing.
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"
I am adding on to an existing roadway. I want to match my exist.cross slope of the road way which will vary.
When I select to use the parameter reference LinkoffsetandSlope I get a slope, but it is in the wrong direction.The linkoffsetandslope is getting the grade from the existing CL of roadway and the existing edge of pavement.
I'm having an issue where the more I zoom into a drawing that has a raster image (a 1mb jpg) in it, regenerating times become increasingly long until the whole program just freezes. When I zoom back out, it's fine.
I've tried changing the file type, saving it with a different program, lowering the quality to Draft, zooming in on an area that the raster image wasn't in, lowering the DPI of the image, nothing works. I've spent the last two hours searching Google for a fix, found nothing. The only thing that seems to work is if I put the image on a layer and freeze it. The problem there is, I'm tracing over the image, so it being invisible makes it rather difficult to work with.
I found several methods to alter the regen times, but not ways to SPEED them up.For example: I switch from layout tab to layout tab and my regen time can be up to 30 seconds (I know, doesn't sound long, but it's killing me).How do I speed this up??
We just started using autocad 2013 after many years on autocad 2005. I am working on a 3d model, and whenever I do a "HIDE" command, everything looks OK, but I can't select anything until I do a regen. This was never a problem in 2005. Some of the drawings I work on are quite intense and using the hide command would definitely work with selecting the proper objects. Why can't I select or find endpoints or centers any more after doing a hide?
As you see in the picture I have a subdivision that follows a curving road, and therefore all the lot lines also follow the road. This is unfortunate, as I have been creating label styles 1 by 1 for left, center, right, for every angle of line. Is there a way to get your label to go parallel with the line automatically?
What I am thinking of is with structures, there is that circular grip that rotates the structure, is there something similar to this with labels? or must i keep grinding away making the labels one by one in their separate degree intervals.
Right now I have 33 label styles.... and I am not even 1/4 of the way done.
We are in the market of switching software programs (from JDS Alignment-a database driven program) for stationing alignment centerlines for pipelines. We currently run Civil 3D 2009 and Map 09. Carlson claims that their software can do this, but we'd rather not spend the extra money if we already have the functionality built into our existing programs.
We are looking for a program (or a function in Civil 3D 2009 and Map 09-similar to the Fieldbook functionality) that labels interference crossings, appurtenances and other pipeline, utility and topographical features based on a shot code. I attached a DWG. that shows how we want it to look, and the types of features we want stationed.
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.
create a label style for cross sections that will label the travel way in the run:rise format and will label fore and back slopes in a percent format. I can figure out how to make them all one or the other, but am having trouble getting them to reflect correctly based on where they are attached.I am having trouble coming up with the actual expression or you can do it thru code set styles, but regardless of settings that I change nothing on the cross section view changes.
there has used a non-AASHTO curve widening formula to calculate automatic curve widening for an alignment? I'm trying to use our Agency curve widening formula which is a function of curve radius and central angle.
I'm not sure if it is even possible to use the central angle of the curve for calculating widening, or how one would go about using a non-AASHTO CW formula.
Attached is the curve widening formula that needs to be used. L will be a constant here.
