I am working in Civil3d and have a 3d polyline that i want to generate a 2d section line of i.e the path of the section plane is along the 3d line
Is there a built in function in the API that does this.
You might have to create an Alignment from the polyline and then create Profile / Profile view.
Or create a Featureline from the polyline and create a Profile.
Do you see any UI tools in Civil 3D which does similar job ? Other than _AeccCreateQuickProfile which Draws temporary profiles along line, arc, polyline, lot line, feature line, survey figure or selected points, I am not aware of any other UI tools. If there is an equivalent UI tool, I can investigate to find if there is any equivalent API.
