AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Quick Way To Show All Lines On Profile For Design And Drafting Purposes?

Sep 28, 2012

i have a long alignment going through a lot of creeks. right now the creeks are in xref just polylines but it intersect with alignments at areas.

is there a quick way to show all these lines on profile for design and drafting purposes? ideally want to just show a line at each intersection would be fine.

tried using pipes takes too long to set up. this is one important feature to have in the software.

i can program it again but i have not enough time to finish this project by mid october if i keep programming things.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Show Locations Of Cross Section Sample Lines On Profile View

May 15, 2013

recommend a good way to indicate the location of cross section sample lines in a profile view (of same alignment) as vertical lines? the sample lines have been created at user defined locations from polylines, and do not follow a particular station order. my first thought was to use transparent command to draw line in profile view using station from plan view, but i have in excess of 100 cross sections, and that may be time consuming.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Quick Profile Lock Down?

Nov 25, 2013

Not everytime but very often when I create a quick profile from line, polyline or feature line, my Autocads locks.  The only thing I can see is the command prompt asking to specify the point of origin for the quick profile and I can't seem to do anything.  The only way to get out of the command is by trying to close the autocad window in the task bar or task manager. 

To fix this it takes various steps: regenall, zooming out, but still the odd time I get it to work.  This seems to me like a video card issue, but I had this problem with several video cards and windows versions (7&8).  Currently using Nvidia Geoforce GTX 770M.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Design Profile PVIs Disappearing?

Dec 15, 2013

Working in Civil 3D 2014 SP1 I have a Design Profile that I have created by setting the Existing Profile to 'Static' and Creating a Copy of the Existing Profile... This leaves me with a Design Profile that follows the Existing Surface. The problem begins when I delete a section of PVI's and introduce new 'Design PVI's'... I have found that at apparently random times my Design PVI's have been lost and replaced with the original copied PVI's that follow the Existing Surface. This has occurred more than once and I can't find any reason as to why this may be occurring...?

Currently using Civil 3D 2013 & 2014 SP1

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Super Elevation Corridor With ETW Design Profile

Aug 15, 2012

I've got a highway project for which I'm modeling the corridor but the design profiles given to me are for the right lane top edge (ETW) and not the centerline (crown).  This is an undivided planer roadway with a typical 2% cross-slope.  How can I use that profile for the right edge to run my corridor?  I can't seem to get the corridor to use the super table that is attached to the centerline when I use an offset assembly.  Is an offset assembly the right way to go with this design?  

What I've done just to get going is to take that right edge design profile and draw it in my centerline profile view, then lower it 0.24' (which is my 2% normal cross-slope for a 12' lane) and then use that as a centerline profile and let my normal super assembly and table data control the corridor through the supers.  So far that is working--but is there a better way to do this?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Label Style - Design Road CL Profile

Apr 9, 2010

how to create a label style for design center of road (simple tangent) in profile that will work between multiple profile views. I've used the 'Create Multiple Views' profile view wizard. I use a horizontal dimension style label for CL road (looks just like an autocad linear dimension). I'd like the label work across separate views i.e. stop at view end, pick back up at view start.

The label I currently use is simply a line component from tangent start dimension to tangent end dimension and the text component is anchored to the line midpoint. Label looks as intended for normal use. For some reason the line drops as if looking for the actual pvi at the right side when i use multiple views.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Grip Edit Copied Design Profile?

Apr 12, 2012

It seems like I used to be able to do this in 2012.

I created a design profile and used the copy profile command.  I close the layout toolbar of the original design profile.

When i select the copied design profile to grip edit a pvi, the existing ground profile and copied profile disappears and i cannot grip edit.

I have also tested this with an OOTB template.

Question: How to be able to grip edit a copied design profile in 2012.

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 :: Existing Ground And Design Profile - Label Slopes

Dec 15, 2008

I have an existing ground profile, and a design profile. All I want to do is label the slopes of the design. When I click my line label style and turn on the text it labels the existing ground and the design ground. I cannot find the setting in my two profile styles to turn the slopes off in the existing ground.

Oh, how can I get a tick on the V.C. dimension line?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Design Profile Actively Selected With Grips Showing

Oct 24, 2013

We have recently installed Civil 3D 2014 Service Pack 1, and while for the most part it works great, we are noticing one significant issue with profiles.  In particular, when we have a design profile actively selected with grips showing, and then select one of the grips, the PVI you are editing becomes offset from the cursor.  When you select a point with the cursor, the profile syncs back up as you would expect.

Just thinking out loud, but it seems like it would be some sort of graphic card issue, but we are seeing it across multiple machines.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Bands - Multiple Surfaces Sampling From One Design Profile?

Jun 26, 2013

I have 2 different surfaces (Existing Ground & Proposed Pipe Invert) that I want to have the elevations shown for in a profile data band, but I want them to show at the design profile's PVIs (Proposed Road).  Is it possible to set up a data band style that samples at one profile's geometry points but displays the elevations from these points from a different profile?  My workaround is to set the data bands to all sample from the design profile first and label over the design profile's data band but I'm hoping for a cleaner solution.  Attached is an image showing the profile view in question.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Network Won't Show Up In Profile?

May 15, 2012

I am using civil 3d 2012. 

I have a network that I showed in a profile view and, to creat my proposed pipes network I simply copied the pipes and structures and used network split.

Now I have two networks, but when I project those pipes and structures into a profile they are not visible. 

If I check the profile view properties and look at the pipe networks tab, all the pipes are shown as drawn.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Show Utility Crossings In Profile

Dec 6, 2010

I am laying out a pressure sewer. I have defined an alignment and profile for the route. I want to show the utility crossings (electric, gas, water, etc.) in plan and profile. My thinking is to create a block and snap it to the crossing in plan view, drape it on EG and lower it by the assumed depth and then project the block to the profile view. I have this working. Now I need to label the plan view XING's with station and utility type and label the profile XING's with station, elevation and utility type. I could easily do this with station and profile labels, but as the desgin evolves, the alignment is subject to change and the crossings will need to be moved and updated. It would be nice to have the labels and symbols integrated into a single entity that updates when moved to the new location. Is there a way to do this with styles?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Existing Profile To Show FG Elevations

Feb 15, 2013

I'm currently working on a profile and I just don't understand why my profiles barely show any stations.  It doesn't even show the very first station.  I remember checking on a box that mentioned showing the 1st station and still nothing.  I've gone into the edit band style and turned on the labels at minor stations but it just turned on the FG/EG elevations.

I've added a picture showing what i'm talking about.  It only shows stations 31+00 and 32+00.  Not 30+00 or the 50' increments.  Also, while I'm on the subject.  How do I get something proposed into this existing profile to show FG Elevations.  Example if I just wanted to strike a straight line from 30+00 to the end where the elevation is a 91' & 86'.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Structure Won't Show Up In Profile View

Feb 22, 2012

I've been having a problem with a pipe structure not showing up in a profile view.  I have a single pipe network with everything (pipes and other structures) showing up in the profile when I select them, right-click, and click on "Draw Parts in Profile".  Like I said, this works for all the other pipes and structures in the profile except one.  When I select the structure individually and try to draw it into the profile, it still won't work.  A friend told me to make sure that the structure is within the surface, and it is.

I'm using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Missing Profile Lines

Dec 17, 2012

The grid is there, all of the profiles are listed under the alignment but they are not showing up. All of the styles are on and I've turned all layers on. I've tried to regain all and recover the drawing but the profile lines are not showing in the grid.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Gravity Pipe Crossing Doesn't Show Up In Profile

Dec 6, 2013

I have a typical storm sewer pipe network in a drawing by itself with an alignment.  I data referenced both of these into another drawing.  I draw the pipe network in the profile view I created and the pipes that run with the road show up fine.  Every once in awhile there is a lateral storm sewer pipe that runs across the road.  When I draw these in the profile view they show up, but, only the pipes that are skewed to the alignment show up.  If the pipe is perfectly perpendicular to the alignment it does not show up.  I have two styles setup.  One main one that shows the inner and outer pipe walls and another one for overrides for the crossing pipes and that stlye has crossing pipe walls turned on.

Why is it though only the skewed pipes show up as ellipses in my profile view but the perpendicular pipes do not?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Self-intersecting Alignment - How To Show Pipes In Profile View

Feb 12, 2013

Run profile on a self-intersecting street?  The one I'm dealing with is a dead end 'P' shape.  Logically, there are manholes in the intersection of the 'P', and logically to me, these structures need to show up in two places in the same profile view.  Of course, C3D doesn't realize that I want a certain structure to show up twice, and I'm not sure how to communicate that information to it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Recreating A Roadway From Paper Plans For Estimating Purposes

Sep 24, 2013

I currently work for a construction company, we mostly focus on roadway rehabilitaion. We recieve DOT paper plans containing the construction plans and cross sections. I have been till now using the cross sections to build the roadway in Agtek, which is the software we use, then from there I can do my takeoff for excavation, utlites and areas. We have the 2012 BIM software and i'm very intersted in using that to rebuild the plans so I can preform the takeoff just as the DOT does as well as to model the utilities. Also i'm intersted in creating the model to show the estimators and the higher ups, so we can create a phasing plans, traffic plans or how we would want to handle the roadway rehab in general. I'm a novice in terms of Civil 3D, so this would be something i'd be practicing at home first.

My user specified station range is sta: 0+80 to 1+30. I didn't have this issue in release 11 (im currently using release 12) with this profile view style and i did hundreds of profiles with this very same style.
