AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Assign Mline To A Figure Style In Figure Prefix Database
Oct 29, 2013
I am using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011. I am wondering if there is a way to assign an mline to a figure style in the Figure Prefix Database. Ultimately I am trying to create storm drains that have a width automatically (ex. 12" SD would come in at 12"). Right now I have a single center line that comes in and I manually offset the line to create a width or I place an mline over the center line.
I am trying to work on my figure database and have run into an issue I don't understand. Curious as to weather or not it's something I am doing, or just a bug.
I wanted to look at every possible line that could be imported so I created a dummy point file using the Figure prefix data base and imported it into one of my blank templates and ran into to curious issues.
CP is connecting to AA
OC only connects if the point has an identifier behind the OC, for example OC01.
Here is a copy of the figure database and point file I am using. I understand you will not have my layers, but the connectivity should be the same. Let me know if you need anything else.
I am running Autocad Civil 3D 2012. I created a figure prefix database that our surveyors were familiar when coding in the field. It is a numeric code list. I received a survey last week that had 6 break lines coded in the point file. Only one of the 6 acts as a break line.
All break lines start and stop with the right line work commands but they fail to break crossing triangle legs. I've checked everything I can think of and the setup looks correct . The only difference between the one break line that works and the others is that break line has sequential point numbers while the other break line codes are scattered throughout the point file.
I have Figure prefix of GPNT for painted gas line and GP desciption key for Guy Pole. Imported survey text file, linework for GPNT came in correctly but at each shot the symbol for GP (Guy Pole) came in. Is there a way to fix that without creating a description key for GPNT. Have others with the same situation. Wanted to avoid adding description keys for items that were displayed all the same.

Is there a faster way to create figure prefix i.e form excel spreadsheet or access.
I have one tip also. When you modify the figure database "C:ProgramDataAutodeskC3D 2013enuSurvey" by using notepad and you add "*" after each figure it will connect during linework codes that much the prefix code and will exclude the integer, EPN1 and EPN2 will be treated as EPN
When bringing in some figures that don't match the figure prefix database in a drawing with a set default style for figures (settings tab>survey>edit feature settings) it is being ignored and the "standard" style is being created and used. Is there another setting?
I need getting the crossing point for a survey figure relative to an alignment. I'm trying to use the IntersectWith on my active alignment. I'm able to see my figure in debug mode so, I think I've got access to each survey figure. I think I need to cast the figure as a com object to a acad entity using directcast, but that's where it's going bad. When using the ofigure.GetObjectId it returns an integer value and it fails in VS Express 2010 in the DirectCast when trying to pass the objectId.
The error (if I'm setting this up correctly) :integer cannot be converted to objectid
'Get figure crossing point Dim ofigures As AeccSurveyFigures = oSurveyProject.Figures 'Dim figEnt As Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.Entity Dim intPoint As New Point3dCollection() For i = 1 To ofigures.Count - 1 Dim ofigure As AeccSurveyFigure = ofigures.Item(i) Dim figObjectId = ofigure.GetObjectId Dim figEntity As Autodesk.AECC.Interop.Survey.AeccSurveyFigure = DirectCast(m_trans.GetObject(figObjectId, OpenMode.ForRead), Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.Entity) m_alignment.IntersectWith(figEntity, Intersect.OnBothOperands, intPoint, IntPtr.Zero, IntPtr.Zero) Next
I have a survey figure in plan view that I want to project to a profile. I have a projection style set, and the command settings use this style. When I project the figure to the profile, nothing shows up.
If I try it again, the command tells me that an object already exists in the profile and will update it. What am I doing wrong? What is the correct procedure to project these lines to a profile?
using CIvil3D to figure volumes. I have a very large aerial topo from a couple years ago to compare against a topographical survey I completed this year. No problem creating surfaces.
Question: In the topo's, I need to get a volume from two different areas....one area being a fill area, the other being the borrow area. Don't want any volume data throughout the rest of the site.
Do I just create one large surface for each topo and designate boundaries somehow? Or do I need to create multiple surfaces for each topo? If this is the case, will I need to make sure any breaklines, etc. don't cross from one area to the other?
Why are figure line styles and feature line styles not shared, or a parent / child relationship? Also, should match properties change the style of a feature line to appear to be the same style as the figure line? The style only exists in as a figure line style.
If we offset a Figure line (feature line stepped offset) we get feature line, then we match properties to a figure line that has the correct style. The prospector says the Feature line has the style of the figure line; however, if we edit the feature line properties the style is set to none.
Recently I upgraded to 2013 and I been having some issues with my survey DB, first of all I created a base data shortcuts project template folder with all my folders and a default Survey DB.
once I create my project, and import points to the default DB, I have no access to the Figure Properties. Is this feature, that worked in 11 & 12 now broken in 13? I have gone into the setting and copied a new files to the folder several times, to no avail, and there are no other versions of C3D on this machine.
So now that I have my points in the drawing, I go to translate them to my survey, generally I will utilize line in the drawing between field data, and platted data to translate and rotate to the platted lot or lots and the work from there on any calcs or changes. However, when my OSNAP toolbar is docked and locked and I go to select a point line the midpoint, I have no access to the OSNAPS. This also, worked in 11 & 12, but seems broken in 13.
I have a client who uses Bently MX Roads for road design and requires that survey data be supplied in GENIO format. I realise that there are many possible options to get Civil3D survey data into MX, but I am trying to explore the use of the Subscription Extension to Import/Export GENIO.
Surfaces - no problem. Points - I see how I can get that to work. But the only linework that can be exported is Feature Lines, and it is also important that the feature lines have a name (likely related to the layer it is on).
I can convert survey figures to feature lines and name them one by one but would be very time consuming for a whole survey. Is there any way of doing all figures at once?
I'm guessing not and that it is probably easier to do the Genio creation from dwg in MX itself.
how I can go about automatic creation of figures and existing alignment (i.e. Centerline and edges) using csv/txt file data format. Currently I have to snap each line to create Centerline, edge, figures etc. a headache of work! I am using Autocad civil 3D 2012.
I just discovered survey figure groups and am playing around with them. Great way to bring certain figures in & out. What seems crazy is that I have to check them on/off one at a time. Am I missing something or is this the only way to add figures to a figure group?
I am having trouble plotting to scale, I have a large drawing which is set up in metres so I understand I need to scale up the figure by multiplying by 1000 but the problem is: I set up my paper at A1 and then zoom and adjust to an acceptable scale which turns out to be 1:850 by typing in .85xp, once drawing is printed to scale it is not 1:850 but 1:1185 approx, the thing is using the exact same method if I scale to 1:1 equivalent to 1:1000 the drawing IS to scale. Using design jet 500 and Autocad LT 2011.
I am taking a chair that i have and trying to make a 3d model of it on Inventor.
The problem that i have is this has many ridiculous curves and concaves. I wanted to know if their was such a tool, like a sculptor tool or something of that nature that will make a smooth 3D curvy figure.
I attached pictures of the chair to this message if that works.
I can't figure out how! I know Lightroom has a feature, but the freedom with that one (fonts/colors/size) I have 900 images to stick a watermark on, and I really need to know how to do it in Photoshop CS4Thanks!
I'm tring to make a droplet and it's not working. I've created an action, the action works fine when applied to a photo while in PS, then I went through the steps to create a droplet. I set the droplet to appear on my desktop and the and set it to close and save. So I drag a photo onto the droplet icon and nothing happens, the photos just stay the same.
Ive made a bunch of actions and tried creating droplets for all of them and it's the same thing every time. I get the droplet Icon on my desktop, but when I drag a photo or a file onto it...nothing at all.
Used photoshop a few times before (succesfully!), and need to knock up something involving a infinity loop/symbol, or figure of 8 on it's side. It needs to have a certain shape or thickness. I'm sure i'd figure it out after a few hours, but haven't got the time for that..
Attached are two files. First one is my best attempt at this endevour, the only problem with this one is that it isn't gold, I need it to be gold and the other is that I used the Chrome filter and it completely takes over the picture. I want to it to look like a figure but still be able to see that it's Costanza.
The second is the photoshoped version of the pose that I edited. The original photo was incomplete and had a background. I also made it grayscale in order to make it easier to color gold.
Third is a costanza version that I added the foot and part of the leg.
Ok I'm new to both photoshop and making a website, but I'm diving into both I know most standard websites have 3 columns to them, the main center website and then the side bars of color/design.Â The side bars are what I'm trying to figure out. The main background color of my website is going to be black, so I would like to have a dark grey side bars but then also wanted to layer 3 different images over the grey, in diagnol rows, parallel with each other, but almost kind of ghosted themselves... Does that make sense? How do I take a picture, and turn it ghosted/transparent almost so that they will show just ever so slightly on the dark grey side bars? Thanks.
Where to start creating a figure similar to the attached image.
I'm trying to recreate a logo for someone who lost their original files and I'm struggling to create this little 'stick-figure'. Is CS6 the best place to try this or would I be best looking at an different software.
