AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Get Cut And Fill Lines On Sheet Files To Dynamically Update

Nov 22, 2013

C3D 2013

I am trying to figure out a way to get the cut and fill lines on my sheet files to dynamically update when I update my corridor.

My work flow:

Currently I have a model drawing with my corridor, which produces cut and fill feature lines.

I create a separate reference file with drefs, and then paste in cut and fill polylines (where I created from the feature lines).

Finally, I have sheet files where I xref in the reference file.

Is there a better way to deal with these cut and fill lines so they are dynamic when I change my corridor?  I don't really want to xref in my model drawing just because it has all sorts of things in there..

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How Objects Dynamically Update A Surface

Aug 17, 2012

I've created a surface from blocks but I need to move many of the blocks to new locations/elevations but if one of the blocks that formed part of the surface build is moved or elevation adjusted the surface doesn't update. I have to reselect and add the blocks to the definition, remove the original blocks and shunt the newly added block up the definitions list.

If Civil points are moved they automatically update the surface (as expected) so is there a list anywhere or which entities/objects will cause the surface to update automatically and which ones won't??

I don't generally get data in this way hence the question so I'm thinking the best way forward would be to convert to Civil Points and make point groups??

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Update Notes And Legend On Every Sheet

Jun 4, 2013

Civil 3D 2010

I posted this in Autocad General but was wondering if I can do something using C3D tables or labels...

Currently we have about 30 sheets where we xref the same construction note and legend.  The client is asking us to remove notes that don't apply to each sheet.  For example, sheet 1 will not need note 2, 6, 10, 11.  Sheet 2 will not need 3, 5, 10, and 11, etc.

Same goes for the legend-  they don't want to see something if it does not apply to the sheet.

Other than bringing in those notes and legend into each sheet and modifying it, I can't think of another way to do this.  Previously, if I needed to change the wording of note 4, I change it once and I'm done.  If I need to change anything now, I will need to open up 20 sheets.

Also, they want to remove the note completely, and not just cover up the note with "Not used this sheet."

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Corridor Feature Lines Don't Update With Code Set Style

Nov 7, 2013

How do i get the feature lines in my corridor to change their style based on the code set style selected?Whats the point of defining featureline styles in the code set style if they don't change in the corridor? They only get used when you first create the corridor?

Is there something I am missing or is this the intended workflow?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cut And Fill Slope Lines Won't Show Up In Cross-sections?

May 1, 2012

I have created a road for a pit mine (which is unlike roads I have designed in the past). The road switched back towards itself and I need to daylight the cut slopes to show the limits of the mine/road cut. However, my cut/fill lines are not showing up in my cross-sections, but the plan view is showing the limits of excavation.

I assume this is because my limits are intersecting, from each of the roads, the upper and the lower. How can I get around this, or why are my cross-section lines not showing?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Dimension Style Fill Color Causing Random Lines On PDF Files

Dec 13, 2013

Using Autocad 2014. I recently changed our dimension style fill color to background.  Now when we create pdf files, there are random lines either to left of the text or left and top of text. It is not every dimension. We had it set to none before and would trim lines around dimension text. We did not have problems with pdf until changing the fill color. It plots from autocad to plotter without a problem.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Dynamically Dependent Profiles

Apr 11, 2013

I've heard it said that it's possible to make two separate layout profiles dynamically dependent.  For example, making a driveway centerline profile dependent on the roadway centerline profile it's connected to.  The idea is that if you revise the roadway centerline profile, up or down, that the driveway profile will automatically go up or down with it.

Is this true?  I didn't readily see anything in the profiles area of the docs or the tutorials.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Dynamically Linked Vertically Offset Design Profile

Dec 6, 2012

I have a design profile and now I want to create one that's linked to it but have it 0.5m lower than the profile I just laid out. Is there a way to do this? I'd like to keep them dynamically linked so when i manipulate the 1st profile it will drop the 0.5m lower profile. In theory this would be a great feature to have in CIvil 3D.

At this point I will likely need to copy the profile and drop it 0.5m in elevation with edit geometry. Not ideal considering when I adjust the main profile I'll need to redo that process to show the profile 0.5m lower than my main design profile. (used as a side slope target).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Vertical Offset Layout Profiles Dynamically

Sep 14, 2012

I am creating construction plans sets that require 3 road profiles for the left edge, center and right edge.  I would like to dynamically link the center line profile with the edge profiles. 

I have created alignment offsets to obtain the existing surface at the offset location.  I would like the edge profiles to have a vertical offset from the center profile.  Also if I modify the center profile I want it to dynamically adjust the edge profiles.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Can't Open Multiple Drawing Files Through Sheet Set Manager

Jun 25, 2012

I have been using the sheet set manager with very few problems for years until - you guessed it - I was upgraded to Windows 7 OS v6.1 and Civil3D 2012 IDS.

Up until then, I was able to open layouts in different drawing files through the sheet set manager while in an open file.  Now, I get an error message (see attached) and have to close the file I'm in to open the other. 

I can open files through the regular file open command and have more than one open at the same time, but it takes away the convenience of using the sheet set manager to avoid having to browse to the desired sheet layouts when copyclipping sheet layout drawing elements from one file to another.

I have studied every sheet set system variable to see if that was the problem, but could not find an answer.  I have the same problem in Civil3D 2010. It happens to new and existing sheet sets in both versions and sheet sets made before the Windows update.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Update K Factor / Sheet Metal Type From Excel Parameter Spreadsheet

I have a set of sheet metal parts modeled in inventor that are produced in a wide range of sizes and several different sheet metal types.

The dimensions (length, width, flange size, etc) are driven from a spreadsheet. I would like to be able to have the user update the K Factor from the same spreadsheet by selecting a sheet metal type.

The sheet metal type and K factor are not listed in the parameters list with the other model dimensional data, so I'm not sure how to proceed.

AutoCAD Architecture :: Sheet Name Field Can Be Broken Into 2 Or 3 Lines?

Aug 24, 2011

I have a question about sheet name field, can it be broken into 2 or 3 lines?

Our office has huge text size for drawing name, which can not be changed to a smaller one (you know the politic craps about standards).

So I wonder if there is a way to break the Sheetname field to 2,3 or 4 lines to accommodate this. So far the field is set to have one single line at best. It was good for "floor plan" but not good for "floor plan and etc, etc...."
