Vertical Curve Labels on Profile

466 Views, 2 Replies

I just created a profile by choosing my PVIs and linking them together with tangent curves.  How do I add labels to show the vertical curve properties (K value, curve length, station of PVI, elevation of PVI...)?  I'm guessing I have to edit the label style?  Any help is appreciated!

  1. Select your alignment
  2. Add labels
  3. Type: Geometry Points / Profile Geometry Points
  4. Add

Let me know if that works for you. Like you said, you'll most likely have to tweak the styles.


Happy drafting!

It sounds as if you are not using a template file with the required label styles.  Import the the "out of the box" template file by clicking on the Manage tab and at the far right, click on Import.  Browse to C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\Autodesk\C3D 20??\enu\Template and choose the _AutoCAD Civil 3D (Imperial) NCS.dwt. 


After you do this,select your proposed profile, in the contextual ribbon, select Edit Profile Labels.  Once in the dialog box, at the bottom right, select Import Label Set.  Then select the Complete Label Set.  Click OK and they will show up.
