Does anyone know how would I go about generating labelled points with xyz values at 5m intervals along a road alignment in Civils 3D 2014?
I have had a go with the AddAlignLabels command but could not figure out how to add an elevation value to the label. Also this method seems to require manual input for each label which is not practical as I will have have around 450 points to set out.
I have looked into the Stakeout Alignment Report, but this seems to require a survey database, which I don't have.
Surely this must be possible, I would have thought it would be fairly simple to do.
Any suggestions appreciated.
If you have an Existing Ground and Finished Ground profile the Profile "Incremental Station Elevation Difference Report" can quickly create what your looking for. There will be a few columns to delete but X,Y,Z for the specified stationing interval along alignment will be included. Note the output file type can be changed by clicking on the "save report to" folder.
I am not sure exactly what you are doing with the 5m intervals. If using an RTK GPS instrument, load the data collector with the SURFACE (Tin) and stake to the Tin. Any where you set the rod down will give you a cut or fill.
I'm trying to do the same thing as HOP-Civils-Team but I don't have a surface. I'm going to take the grade shots AFTER I stakeout the trail but I need an easy way to generate points for my alignmnet first.
