I was trying to export 2 surfaces from Autodesk Civil 3D 2013 to Civil View in Autodesk 3ds Max Design.
However I found that the 2 surfaces are shifted away after importing them in Autodesk 3ds Max Design.
I have adopted Global Import Scene as recommended by Civil View but the result is still the same.
I suspect that I mess up with my 3ds max design settings accidentally.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hopefully this will help us get to the bottom of the issue.
Does this happen on just your machine or other machines as well? If you only have the one machine with 3ds Max, youcan post the file up here and someone will be able to test it for you I'm sure.
Sorry, I don't have second machine to test.
Due to the size of the file, i uploaded to dropbox. Please get it from here
Have you seen this happen on different data sets?
Yes. Same result on my other project as well. However, if i'm not mistaken, I have imported drawing once without any issue(when 3ds Max was freshed install). Until I have gone through few tutorials by autodesk, I only found this issue. I wonder if i have mess up with the setting in 3ds Max during the tutorial.
Has either one of your surfaces been moved in Civil 3D? Check the edits of each surface for a "Transformed by" edit. Hopefully this will help us get to the bottom of the issue.
