AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Display Different Points In Each Viewport / 2013

Mar 11, 2013

Is there a way for me to display different points in each viewport?  I have figured out how to freeze layers and realize I can put the points and labels on different layers but am curious if this is the only alternative?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Unable To Display Reference Points

Aug 17, 2013

I´ve used AutoCAD for a while but this just appeared. The reference points are not displayed on a current line (or any other figure) when I want to join another figure with it, what I mean is that the little green x or square figures won´t appear when I want to join two objects at a point. If I create a circle, for example, and I want to create another circle around it, both with the same origin, AutoCAD won´t display that origin automatically.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Points Will Not Display In Drawing?

Oct 9, 2012

I have a drawing where points that I create will not display.
I have created points in this drawing before.Previously created points display fine.Points created in another drawing and imported into this drawing display fine.All layers have been turned on and thawed, to make sure it's not a layer issue."All points" point group is the top point group.When I create a point manually everything seems to work fine, info is echoed to the command line, etc., but then nothing happens. Obviously it's a setting somewhere, but it is driving me up the wall trying to figure out what setting.  I'm sure I will slap my forehead when told what it is.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volume Table Display In Viewport Is Staked?

Jun 22, 2012

about a Volume Table style, where I have correctly showing in Model Space and is "Split" in the Table Properties.  This is a "Total Volume Table" and is Dynamic.

Just Fine in Model Space... yet is showing within a Viewport (typ. plan sheet) that each Split is simply Staked ontop of each other ?

Thought I (we) came across this a few years ago... yet no issues latetly till now, and also mainly first time I've likely split the Table in R2012 (currently used).

Have maintaining View Orientation "true", yet still nothing.....

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: COGO Points Won't Display In One Layout

Apr 12, 2012

I have a layout in my drawing (Civil 3d 2011) with multiple viewports and my point symbols (trees, manholes, etc.) won't display. I have other layouts in the same drawing that display them fine, but I need to use this specific layout for what I'm doing. This must be a setting of some sort but I can't seem to figure it out.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Display Elevation Heights Of Survey Points Without Having To Type Heights In Text

Oct 23, 2013

Any way using autoCAD LT 2014 to get CAD to display the elevation heights of survey points without having to type the heights in text bozes next to each individual point. i can insert a field which displays the elevation of the point but doing this again i would have to do every point individually.

Another words is there a way to select all the survey points required and get CAD to display a certain property, which in my case is the elevation height of that survey point, next to it? so it looks like    x 23.35  x 23.57 etc..

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2013 Points And Grip Editing

May 24, 2012

In previous versions, grip editing a point from one place to another maintained the point elevation regardless of how the point was moved. For instance, drag it from it's current location and snap to the end of a line. In 2013 the point elevation now changes to match the elevation of the point snapped to. 

Is there a new setting to control how points react to Osnaps? Or are we now expected to use the .XY filter (without ever being notified of this change in workflow)?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2013 / How To Label (Name) Of Point In 2 Points Groups

Aug 12, 2013

I have created 8 points (from 4 locations with 2 depths in each location) in _All Points/Points. These 8 points are grouped into 2 Point Groups:

Points #1, #3, #5 & #7 for Point Group - (1) Depth#1 and
Points #2, #4, #6 & #8 for Point Group - (2) Depth#2.

The "Name" of Point is filled with the SampleID (like cdc-ss01-s1, cdc-ss01-s2,...) - see the attached file. From the HELP of AutoCAD C3D 2013,  I have read/studies the "Point Tables" and "Point Label Styles" and I cannot figure out how to label the 8 points to show the "Point Number", "Point Elevation", and "Name" of Point (i. e. the SampleID like cdc-ss01-s1 & cdc-ss01-s2, ....).!!

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Bringing In 2013 Station Points To 2011

Aug 21, 2013

I'm working as a contractor for a consulting firm and I'm inputting station points using alignments in to my c3d 2013 drawings.

The issue arises when people in the main office need to revise my drawings in their 2011 version of autocad and the station points come out as a surrounding the pline rectangle; a.k.a. crap-o-la.

I've tried saving the station points themselves (or the "alignment", that is) as a block and a wblock but when I input those in to their 2011 version the block comes in as an "OLE" and my lines are incased in a white rectangle and cannot be used further as part of the drawing.

Is there any other way to alignment make the transition from c3d to 2011 regular?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Color / Weight In Viewport Different Than Model Space And Style (2013)

Feb 19, 2013

I'm having a very annoying problem where the color and lineweight of my alignment in a viewport is not what it's set to be. I have an alignment with a style that sets all the linework components to a layer named C-STRM-CNTR-N, the color is set to BYLAYER, the linetype set to Continuous, and lineweight set to .80mm (see style_and_layer_screenshots.png). The layer C-STRM-CNTR-N has Cyan as the color, which shows in the Alignment Style dialog box (see style_and_layer_screenshots.png). In the model space everything looks fine (see c3d_model_space_screenshot.png). But in my layout, the alignment is a different color and lineweight (see c3d_layout_screenshot.png). 

At first I thought maybe the alignment wasn't on the correct layer, but I checked and it's set correctly. Then I checked to see if the layer C-STRM-CNTR-N had a different color set for the viewport through the layer manager, but it's set to Cyan just like it's supposed to be. I went to the model space and noticed the color is correct. Frustrated and at a loss, I closed C3D, then reopened it and the problem is still there.

Why I can't change the lineweight nor the color of the alignment in this viewport? If I change either of those two settings in the Alignment Style Dialog box nothing changes, but the linetype does change.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: FDO Viewport Display Management

Apr 6, 2010

With standard CAD objects it is possible to control their display on a per viewport basis by using the layer manager and freezing any unwanted layers in a particular vport.

I'm having trouble controlling the display of FDO objects from an SDF file in the same way though.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Editing In Viewport That Is Over A Viewport?

Jul 12, 2012

I have a drawing with a viewport that fits to the page. And I created another smaller viewport over top that just shows the legend. Now when I try to double click inside the smaller viewport it always goes into the larger one. I have tried bringing the smaller one to the front but that didn't work. I know that I can clip the larger viewport around the smaller one or bring the legend right into paperspace or slid the smaller one off to the side work in it and slide it back. This is more out of curiosity of how to get into the smaller viewport.

AutoCad :: Viewport Won't Display Object Color?

Jun 3, 2013

I'm having an issue with viewports in a drawing not displaying the color of the objects in model space. All of the objects are set to display bylayer, and all of the viewport overrides in the drawing are off. Still, the objects will only display as either white or grey through the viewport, even though the colors show up fine in model space. I've also tried making a new viewport and it also displays everything as either white or gray, so I'm thinking it might be some kind of system variable that I don't know about.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Large Surface - Converting Points To Cogo Points

Mar 5, 2013

I have a large surface (over 1.5 million points and 20 000hectares)

I need to get a point file .csv from the TIN to be able to use it in another program.

-so i've extracted the points from my surface, but they are Autocad points.

-next step is to convert them to civil 3d points.

-I can not select them all when converting them or my computer crashes.

-so i select about 25 000 at a time, the converting takes roughly 10 minutes.

and i have over 1.5 million points to do.

how can i speed this up.

will more ram useful?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2013 / Changing TOP View To TOP-Front View For 2 Overlapped Points

Sep 23, 2013

I created 8 points (4 locations with 2 depths in each location) in the DWG of my AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 project. I grouped these 8 points into 2 Point Groups: Point Group 1-high depth has Points #1, #3, #5, #7, and Point Group 2-low depth has #2, #4, #6, #8. I changed the 2D Wireframe to 3D Wireframe and on TOP view I saw Point Group 1 is on the top of Point Group 2 (because the 2 Point Groups have the same values of X- and Y-coordinates with different Z(elevation) value - see the first attached file. How can I change the TOP view to the TOP-FRONT view by using some Command to get this fixed TOP-Front view thar has the good separation of the 2 depths as shown in the second attached file?

AutoCAD LT :: Array Doesn't Display Properly In Viewport

Dec 21, 2012

I have and array that looks fine in model space but when viewed in a viewport from paperspace, sections of the array look like they are wiped out.  Going back to model space everything looks fine.  The only way I can get it to fill in is to delete the viewport and create another one.  It's then fine for awhile but before long, areas are missing again.  I've redone the viewport three times and it's starting to drive me nuts.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Designating Points As Control Points

I have a couple points that were part of an import event (data from a previous project) which I want to assign as control points for an incoming traverse, is there any way to assign those as control points?  I can't seem to find a way to do that other than perhaps re-importing the specific points as control points and overwriting the existing ones.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Moving Points Out Of All Points Group?

Apr 10, 2013

I have a project that was started by leaving all the survey data inside the "All Points" group.  So, I'm concerned that when I enter my as built survey points, that even if I put them into their own group, that the original surface will still look at them and just rebuild to my asbuilt data, effectively cancel out the purpose of the asbuilt survey.  Will this happen? 

I want to take the original points and put them into a group of their own, but I don't know if that will affect anything or not?  I have several wetlands already designed on that surface with volume calcs already done too. 

What should I do?
