Blank Profile View

Hi,

 

I'm a brand new user so hopefully this is an easy question for some of you.

 

Given a drawing of 3d polyline topo data i was asked to create a profile view.

I got out a training book and simply followed the instructions given to create a profile view from a surface.

The profile view is blank.

Attached is a screan shot of what I am dealing with.

 

Thank you all!

Joy

 

 

Your surfaces have nothing defining them and they have been moved, twice. Remove the two moves, add the lines/polylines as breaklines and they show up fine:

Check the profile style.

Check all layers on & thawed.

Check the stations & elevations set for the profile view: if you set them yourself you could be out of range of the surface.

Close program & reopen.

 

Just a few thoughts.

Thanks I appreciate that unfortunately I'm still at a loss, any further ideas would be hugely appreciated.

 

What i did do is create a standard surface and allignment to use. I used the create profile from surface comand and stuck to the standard settings. I have been messing around with the settings for quite a while.

Did you add the surface to the profile list?

Go to your profile view properties and check to see if there are any profiles that can be displayed. If you aren't sure how to do it, click HERE.

 

If you don't have any profiles listed, you need to create a surface profile. HERE is how to do that.

Thanks guys,

 

I do have surfaces listed in the profiles tab of the view properties.

The elivation I'm using is accurate.

 

Please let me know if any other ideas come to mind.
