AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Line Moves When Section With Projected Object Is Moved
Oct 31, 2012
C3D 2012 SP2.1 on Win7-64
I have a marker on a cross section that was projected from a short feature line that I created from a 3DPolyline. If I move the cross section (they never come in correctly, right?), the feature line moves too. If I use a 3Dpoly, this doesn't happen. Only went to the feature line because for some reason, when I went to Project Multiple, the 3Dpolys weren't picked up.
Now I wondering if I've moved feature lines on other projects where I have moved the sections. Could be a real problem. Most of those, though, had a mix of feature lines and 3Dpolys, so they would only be partially messed up! Hopefully, I moved the sections before doing the projection.
Some what new to Civil 3D, so I hope I explain this correctly..
I imported points with linework and then needed to move them slightly. I unlocked the points and moved them with no problems, but I then went to re-process linework which moves the points back to their original location. I have tried relocking the points first before re-processing linework, but then it appears that nothing has happened.
What type of objects can be projected into a profile view? I know that points, feature lines, and multiview blocks can be projected with variable results. I can't even find a simple list within Civil 3D's.

I would like to bring in some of our linework into WS so it can be viewed on an iPad or smartphone with the GPS location referenced to the linework. Our dwg files projection is set for the NAD83 California Coordinate System, Zone 6, US survey feet.
Does the line work need to be projected before uploading to WS to use the GPS correctly? I understand there is also a units issue...but for some reason the location is never where it should be.
I have a complex grading situation with a sewer near a drainage channel. Long story short.... I need to somehow look at my alignment section by section and try to establish a feature line that will represent my proposed top of slope. There are a ton of different constraints that I will not go into. My ultimate need is the ability to establish a feature line or 3d pline from the section view. I know that this is somehow possible via corridors. Im working with just an aligment and cross sections at every 25 feet. Is this possible?
I have to represent a road section with limits of houses or any interference on field. All of thees interferences are poly lines, 3dpoly, lines, etc. Is it possible to have a little mark or something like this in a road section, it will work for me a lot for represent the houses in my sections.
Is there a way to project to seperate feature lines with 2 different label styles. Am able to project object to view but both have same label. Need one to have Ex. R/W and the other NEW R/W, would like to do as one change rather than change each for every view.

I am trying to trim one side of a circular surface by using a projected line that forms my trimming line. The original surface is simply a circle that is swept along a path (like a tube/cylinder). When trimming by using the projected line it wants to cut all the way through the surface (i.e. both sides of the tube/cylinder) but I only want it to cut out one side. Is there a way of allowing this or do I create two semi-circular surfaces, therefore only cutting/trimming in effect one side?
I created a Pond Grading object with the associated surface. How can I cut and plot Section Views of the Pond Grading object just as I could do(using "Create Multiple Section Vtews" command) with Corridor object of a Linear project?
While I was out, my partner somehow now has two existing ground lines in my cross-sections. ####exist and ####exist (1). They are offset by about .5 feet left to right. Where do I remove the surtface ###exst (1) from the cross sections. I am looking now.
Since i updated PS (CS6) the last time it has this very strange behavior when i try to position a object via the Arrow Keys.When i hit a Button very fast (3 times) the object jumps back to its very first position where i started to move it.
When it is a new "feature" - where can i turn it off?
Please see the attached drawing. It's for a conveyor system, and the idea is that when you insert the block, you could then select the size of the conveyor and the angle of the turn (straight sections are another block).
What is suppose to happen is, when you insert the block, you stretch the conveyor to the size desired, and the rest of the block should scale to match. Then you select the angle of "turn", and you're good to go.
I got it all to work except... when you stretch the line out, everything scales, but the line doesn't stay in place and just stretch to the left, it moves, which leaves a gap where the conveyor should be.
I am using C3D 2012 and the feature "Project Objects into Multi. Section Views". The question I have is when I project a 3D tree block into the section it appears in the x-section in plan view only. How can I get the tree block to appear in the section in elevation view.
is it possible to get the start and end station of each projected objects?
see picture. what i am doing is based on the different colour. they are geotechnical requirement for the minimul fill depth. so i am thinking about making a program to put in a profile for me and then put horizontal curves. so don't need to do anything by hand. good starting point at least. save a lot of time and not really hard to code either.

I have set one station equation in my alignment and it displays correctly in horizontal view and in profile. But stations of projected objects after that equation are not correct in projected object label. It displays station values as it would be without station equation. If i manually insert profile view label for that point it is correct.
As you can see in attached image green station value (that one is label for projected points) is wrong because it does not take equation into calculation. How to make projected objects labels to consider station equation?
I am trying to use object snap (intersection) to position the end of my sample lines at the intersection of the sample line with a polyline. The object snap works with sample lines left of the alignment centerline but not on the right. How do I correct this?
I use the create feature lines from object command from the Survey pull-down menu and choose a "Associate figure survey point to vertices" I get a survey figure that uses point elevations at some vertices and 0 at others. However, if I use Create Feature Lines from Objects under the Grading pull-down, and use a surface made of just the points, I get a a figure with all the correct elevations.
I checked the vertices where the survey figure drops to 0 and the line is snapped to the point, distance = 0.0000. What gives?
