I would like to add a Rebuild Surface command to my Ribbon Modify Panel. I would also like to have it included in my Right Click menu after a surface is selected. There doesn't appear to be any way to initiate a surface rebuild from the command line and I don't find a command for it in the CUI editor.
There does seem to be a rebuild command in the API but I am not a programmer. Is this possible without programming?
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is how I customized my CUI to get around the issue of not having that functionality built in. I added a button to the quick access toolbar.
Once in the CUI editor
1. Make a new command called "REBUILDSURFACE" by clicking the star/asterisk in the command list.
2. In the new command define the macro as:
3. Drag the new command to the Civil 3D Quick Access Toolbar
4. Close CUI and select your surface and then click the new rebuild surface button.
Hope that helps.
That worked nicely. How did you know about the REBUILDSURFACE command? It does not show up when I searched for it in the CUI editor.
Noticed it while flipping through the command autocomplete one day. Now you have me looking into modifying the ribbon. I'll update you if I figure out something worth sharing.
Not to take away from the solution, but when I select a surface, the rebuild surface command is already on the rt-click menu. I haven't modified my stock CUI at all.
