Hello to everybody! I am a newby in civil3d 2012. I'm trying to find out how to create cross sections from existing ones that i have in autocad file. I allready have read for the way with offsets points, but is there a way to make full cross sections from the allready drawned????Is it possible to convert the existing lines???
Solved! Go to Solution.
You will need surface(s) to do that.
Obviously you can manipulate your existing cross sections by normal Autocad lines, etc., then plot but that is it.
Yes, i can manipulate just in simple autocad..but i need to put the existing cross sections in order to use them for volume purposes...and since civil is such a fine program i was thinking that there should be a way to manipulate the "ready" thing ...there are other simplest progs where you can import existing cross sections from dxf file...thank you Bill anyway
Dear neilyj thank you very very much!!! this is what i am talking about!!! I am so excited and reliefed!!! you are great...I am going to try this out and inform you about the results...
and as my greek ancient ancenstors said "Aeì ho theòs ho mégas geōmetreî tò sýmpan" which means "Always the great God applies geometry to everything"
thanks again my friend
Hey there neilyj:
After watching the video, it appears to me that I could use the PGL from the cross-sections and design it easier than digitizing all those sections.
