are you sure you didn't miss step 3 ?
I was picking the wrong profile to edit in Step 4......duh!!!! Sorry. However, this procedure will be very helpful when trying to match existing ground in design. Thank you very much again!!
Joe, your method is quite ingenious, have a kudo, most of the posts i've read don't seem have any solution to this issue, it seems to be a quite challenging problem...............I had created a profile from file n followed your steps to create a layout profile from it bt one thing though, when i want to change the update mode of the new profile to dynamic in profile properties->profile data->update mode the tab is either blank or only has the static option...........is there anything i'm missing when it comes to setting a profile to either static or dynamic? Thanks in advance
Hi Joe, sorry for the delay but what i was trying to accomplish was importing an existing ground profile from file as well as a finished ground profile from file into the same profile view and then have civil 3D recognize them as existing ground and finished ground respectively when i'm generating the incremental station elevation difference report for setting out data.
If you ignore the eg surface dialog the report will give the data, no? I just named the profiles appropriately from profile properties
Thanks alot, assigned the profiles their appropriate styles in profile styles i.e. design profile and EG ground respectively and was able to come up with the report. I was in doubt at first because i thought the profile style properties only affect the visual appearance of the profiles such as colour, thickness e.t.c as in the traditional autocad. So they are also reflected in the reports as EG and FG?
If you don't mind, could u please have a look at this thread about a best fit alignment and see what you come up with.
Thanks alot man, Cheers!
