Hello all,

Maybe somebody knows how to make 3 different contour line types:
1. bold continuous point elevation 100, 102, 104, 106...
2. only continuous point elevation 100.50, 101, 101.50, 102.50...
3. dashed at point elevation 100.25, 100.75, 101.25, 101.75...

Thank you in advance.

The Civil 3D surface style has a Major and Minor increment, but not a
sub-minor increment. However, you can accomplish what you have described by
using the "user defined" contour feature.

Set your Major Contour Interval to 2' and your minor Interval to 0.5'. You
would then set the appropriate linetype on the Display tab of the surface
style for the Major and Minor Interval.

For the dashed elevation at 100.25, 100.75, etc - go to the surface
properties -> Analysis tab. Select the Analysis type of "user-defined
contours" and select the number of contours to add. Next you will have to
go into that control which has the range details and set the values of the
contours and the appropriated data. A bit tedious but I think you will get
what you are looking for.

Thank you, I will try.
Maybe you will agree with me that is good function in future version.

And maybe you can know, what is the problem (Acadmap2005 3D) version with
metric settings, because I don’t find how to setup a general scale 1:500 ant
use label size in mm, in layout view it’s become micro size.
Only one way to set scale 1:1 and then labels size is 1mm = 1000mm and in
layout is ok.
Thank you in advance.

Hey Dan;

Maybe think about that task in a different light - as in which will be the
most entities to be created (the quarter unit)?

So treat them as the Minor and the next level up as the Major? Which would
leave the Whole Unit as the User-Defined.

Would this likely alleviate needing to enter the decimal point for every
Range necessary if Ka goes this route?
