For some reason I cant seem to target an offset alignment layout profile with my corridor lane assembly. I can target the existing the existing groundprofile with the same offset alignment, but the layout profile when targetted does not change the lane in my cross sections. I can do this with civil 3d 2010, but not 2012. I have tried other lane sub-assemblies and it doesn't make a difference.
I have created a widening then created an 11-foot offset from the widening for some reason I cannot create a 22-foot offset or an d11-foot from the first offset. I can go as high as 22.5 but no more. There are no curves in the alignment only linear tapers. why I cant get to 22-feet?

I want to show the alignment staining #'s but I also have a corridor and sample lines running through the stationing that I want to see. I do not wish to drag every alignment label and then have the leader showing.
We have been playing with offset alignments, and the tool appears very useful, especially in regards to laying out subdivision streets with curb, sidewalks, row, etc. In order to shortcut the process, I am hoping to develop a routine that will gather offset data for each type of offset, and then apply the appropriate styles, label sets, naming convention, etc.
We started going down the path of using Lisp or a recorded macro, but it quickly became obvious (through trial and error and some quick "googling") that another approach may be more suitable. I have attached a screenshot of an example of what we would like to automate.
I am trying for last hour but cannot make this work. I have attached screen shot of a dynamic label with some text. The problem is as you add degree symbols and inch (") symbols and paratheses to the text, the leader starts to intersect the station value. I want to move the leader a little below the sta. value so the station vallue is readable. When I move the leader the text moves with it. I tried everything in edit label text option but cannot seem to fix it.
Im using civil 3d UKIE 64bit, having a serious problem with adding a lane widening to an offset alignment. It is a straight alignment approx 200m length, but when i enter the parameters that is asked, at the end it says no solution!
I would like to set up an alignment station offset label that when in the dragged state, offsets the arrowhead from the actual insertion point on the alignment in any direction and distance I specify. I am preparing some plans for a water line. I am working at a 1"=200' scale so all of the blocks representing fittings are scaled up so they are legible.
In some instances, the fittings are right next to each other. If I place an alignment station offset label at the actual station and drag it away from the alignment, the arrowhead is pointing to the station but not the fitting. Is there a way to offset the arrowhead of a C3D label in dragged state other than in the direction of the leader?
This is with Civil 3D 2013. I am able to create a pline by offsetting an alignment using any drawing on any other workstation in our office, but on my machine I get an error: "1 object(s) were filtered out." when I try to select the alignment.
This leads me to searching for some system variable or something that is different on my machine.
Is there anyway to display Alignment Station Offset Label at Profile View because sometimes i want to display where is the phisical noze location in profile view also my attached file display what i have in my label and how display my label in profile view.
How can I have an offset alignment that I created be the current label so when I start to pick offset of my current alignment I do not want to have to go back and change the label style to my own label style.
I am labeling station and offsets from my alignment for curb returns and such and for some reason if the offset point is directly perpendicular from an alignment PC or PT the label can't find the alignment information. It's like there is a blind spot.
I am trying to edit labels for a particular alignment. All labels are along the same alignment and use the same alignment style. I need to change "defl." in each of those labels to "defl:". So simply changing the period to a colon. But it is a lot of work to go through each label and then in edit label text and then change it. Plus, I have to do this on 12 sheets. That's like 300 labels! Is there a quick way to achieve this. If it were simple mtext or dtext then I could use the find and replace option, but these are civil 3d alignment station offset labels? Is there a lisp that can accomplish this task? I am using Civil 3D 2010.
I designed a very straight forward piece of road consisting of a centreline, 2 channels and a footway either side. I played around with superelevation, assemblies and created a corridor. This all works fine.
Now when I add a taper to my offset alignments (for instance to widen the carriageway at a junction approach in order to add a splitter island), I noticed that the corridor stays perpendicular to the centreline. So this means the 2m wide footway I specified is not actually 2m wide, measured perpendicular from the curb. (See attached)
I have figured out that I can achieve this by attaching an offset assembly to the curb and attach the footway sub-assembly to the offset assembly. (So the curb acts a bit like a subsidiary string in MX). However, in order to make this work, I need to assign the horizontal alignment and Profile of the offset alignment to the Offset in the Corridor Properties Parameters (see attached). So far I have only managed to do this by creating a temporary surface which is wider than the curbs, so I can apply a profile to the offset alignment.
This seems a bit of a silly work around for such a standard simple highway design principle. Is there an easier way to create footways that are not perpendicular to the centreline?
Why is the superelevation I have assigned to the centreline, not projected onto the offset alignments? If this was the case, the offset alignments would have had a profile automatically?If you attach the offset assembly to the curb, why does it not automatically know it should stay attached to the curb? ie, remove the need to specify te horizontal alignment in Corridor Parameters?Is there a curb subassembly in existance that will project anything attached to it, perpendicular?

I have reason stumbled across the offset assembly functionality of corridors, and for the most part, I have been quite impressed. One thing that has come up that is odd to me that when I create a surface from the corridor using feature lines, the feature lines that are created by the offset assembly are not added to the corridor surface, even though they are visible and can be selected. When I create the corridor using links, everything is fine and the surface looks great. I can work using the links, but the more curious part of my nature is a bit tortured not knowing why this is happening.
On a related note, any strong preferences/reasons for using links vs. feature lines, or vice versa?

I've built a corridor using only an Offset Assembly. The assembly represents a new path alongside an existing road and I wanted to use the centerline of the road as the main baseline. I have successfully built the corridor and was able to build the Sample Line and Sample Views. However, I am not able to view the sections in the Section Editor. As soon as I try to get into the Section Editor, I get the error message "No station found". The stations are large, 500+00 and up, so I tried changing the BOP to 0+00, but that had no effect. I tend to think it's a result of not having any subassembly attached directly to the main alignment, only to offset alignments. I'm running the 2011 version.
I want to be able to control the location/position of a component in an assembly. This is easy enough through the iProperties/Occurrence tab and then adjust the location of the X,Y, and Z offsets. Is this possible using iLogic? I have been unable to find a function to access via iLogic. Ultimately I am trying to translate a component about an axis not a pattern.
I need an offset lisp routine to offset a selected line a set distance on each side of the selected line and change the layer of the offset lines to the current layer, and then keep prompting me to select the next line for offsetting until I'm finished.
I am trying to create a station-offset label style that will drop the trailing zeros in the offset section - e.g. 15' instead of 15.00', but if the offset is not at a whole number, e.g. 15.01, etc. it will display the entire offset.
I created two expressions: IF(OFFSET-TRUNC(OFFSET)=0,.1/12,.00000001/12)
and this one: IF(OFFSET-TRUNC(OFFSET)!=0,.1/12,.00000001/12)
I then created two offset components, one called truncated, and one called full, and assigned the heights to match the expressions.
I have attached the file, the style is ACHD-Sta Off-Rt [copy]
I using a data reference/shortcut to properly label an alignment in paperspace. However when I reference the alignment in and apply the labels the aren't the same as the original alignment that I am referencing. Is there a setting where I am supposed to apply a new beginning station.
Also it seems as though the stationing(distance) isn't even matching up 1:1 with the original drawing. For example in the original base drawing my alignment starts at 10+00 with the next PI at 14+76.98, but the stationing on the reference alignment starts at 0+83.33 with the very same PI being labeled as 1+23.08. So the very same distance is 476.98' in the real design and the drawing it's being referenced in, but the stationing of the referenced alignment shows it as 39.75 Units.
I've attached a screen of the beginning of the alignment.

I have an assembly that I am trying to offset surfaces from other components to create a different part. I have this part inserted into the assembly (only planes and axis exist on this part for now).
When I try to edit it in the assembly, and select "Copy Construction" from the surfaces menu it will not select the surfaces I need. First is this the correct command? This looked like the closest to an offset surface command.
If not, what is the correct command?
I should also add that this assembly has welds in it, if that makes any difference.
Using Civil 3d2012, Is it possible to change the alignment label style set after the alignment has been created? For example, for an alignment that was created with alignment label set X - change the label set to alignment label set Y? It seems like this should be pretty easy, I must be missing something obvious.
I’m wondering if there is a way to launch alignment grid view/alignment entities (attached) without the need to first launching “alignment”? This dialogue box is quite essential in editing the values of radius, degree of curvature and deflection angle for the selected curve.
Can I inherit the station from one alignment as the begin station for another alignment?
For example. Alignment 1 is 1000 ft long and starts at sta 0+00.
At sta 8+01, Alignment 2 begins and goes off in another direction.
I manually enter 8+01 for begin station Alignment 2. Life is good. Still in the design stage, and customer needs to modify Alignment 1 to avoid something. Now Alignment 2 intersects Alignment 1 at sta 8+15, but same N/E coordinates.
I manually enter 8+15 for begin station Alignment 2.
It would be better if Alignment 2 could inherit the begin station based on the new stationing from Alignment 1.
