AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Changing Alignment Direction Where Feature Line And Alignment Coincide?

May 28, 2012

i've made a serpantine curve that starts from one line of alignment and end on the other line.

i wanted to know how can c change alignment direction when these two feature line and alignment meet each other in order to change the alignment path?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Reverse Section Direction Without Changing Alignment Direction?

Jan 2, 2014

I have cut several sections at different points along a road alignment.  The sections are cut facing the same direction as the alignmnet.  Is there a way to reverse the section direction without changing the alignment direction?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Feature Line From Alignment / Profile?

Oct 25, 2013

C3D 2013, Win 7, 64 bit

When I try to create a feature line using an alignment/ profile, sometimes it gives me a feature line for the entire alignment, even though my profile is only a small segment.  I made sure I selected the correct profile, and I even deleted all other surface profiles just in case.  But it still gives me a wonky feature line for the entire alignment.

However, in the same file, other profiles have worked perfectly.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: More Vertices On Curve For Dynamic Alignment Feature Line

Apr 2, 2013

Windows 7, 64 bit, Civil 3D 2010

I'm trying to create a surface using feature lines.  I have an alignment and profile that I have created a dynamic feature line.  However, on a horizontal curve, it apparently creates a vertex at the start and beginning of the curve, and nothing on the curve, so it triangulates between those two points and that's it.

Do I need to play with spiral tessellation (0.25), mid-ordinate distance (0.1) to get some points along the curve?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Reference Alignment Stationing Differs From Original Alignment

May 3, 2012

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Change Alignment Label Style Set After Alignment Has Been Created?

Jul 18, 2013

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Style Vs Alignment Labels - PI Treated Differently?

Apr 6, 2013

I have a question on Alignment PI's. (Point of Inflection/Intersection)I have an alignment where some PI's have curves, others are merely hard bends.

Is there a way to automatically label the PI's even if they have an associated curve? (I'd like PI, PC and PT)Alternatively, can I only show markers at PI's without curves?

Launching alignment grid view/alignment entities,

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Begin Station Inherited From Another Alignment

Aug 8, 2012

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Feature Line Flow Arrow Direction Expression

Apr 4, 2013

Now, in my understanding, the flow arrow should either be rotated 0, or 180  (pi radians).  But clearly, some of them like to have their own mind about things, and decide on some other rotation.  It seems that on the steep slopes, the arrows go a bit skew.

I think the skew is related to the actual elevation difference of the segment, rather than the steepness of the slope.  A long segment with 15% slope has a worse skew than a short segment at over 30%, presumably because the elevation difference from the start to the end of the segment is larger.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Xref Alignment Labels Changing Colours

Dec 3, 2013

My alignment ticks use the stanard Aecc Tick block. It is on layer 0/bylayer/bylayer etc and the style is set by layer. They display correctly in the source drawing but when I xref that drawing into others, the ticks change colour based on what every the current layer is in the host drawing. If the current layer is 0 they dispaly correctly, if my current layer has a colour 5 associated with it then my xref ticks regen to blue.  This only happens with the tick not the text.

I draw an alignment for road. I turned off design criteria and i used data from manual for my country Slovenia. I need spiral in, curve and spiral out on alignment. Finally i got that alignment. Then i insert sample lines along the alignment. Then i saved autocad civil 3d file and shut  down the program. When i reopen file, i see that sample lines after the spiral in being erased. Sample lines stayed along first tangent, after that they were erased.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2013 Alignment Line Extensions?

Oct 15, 2012

I am just starting to use C3D 2013, and have just finished creating a new template for use in 2013 by importing the styles from our 2012 template.  I am having an issue with an alignment style.  The problem is that every line extension after the first one ends up being on the same layer as the curve (see attachment).  They are supposed to be on a seprate layer as they were in our 2012 template.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Line / Curve LTscale Won't Change

Oct 7, 2012

I am setting up a template for my company and have noticed that I can't change the line/curve/spiral LTscale:

I have chosen a layer with the CENTER linetype for my line/curve/spiral in the style editor. The Alignment appears correctly with the CENTER linetype. However I want to make the dashes a bit bigger, so I change the LTscale in the style editor to 4, but then nothing changes.

When I change the same setting for the "line_extensions" element to the same layer, these WILL update when changing the LTscale.


All other lines, such as polylines and featurelines, as well as the line extension lines of the alignment update correctly. Its just the alignment line.curve/spiral elements that do not.......

Are these locked somewhere?
