Create Sheets Multiple Viewports

1498 Views, 3 Replies

I am creating plan sheets and using the sheet creation tool.  The plan sheets I am looking to make have stacked view, similar to a plan and profile sheet, only they have the horizontal alignment in both views.  I have a templated set up with two viewports, but when I try to create the sheets it puts the same view frame in both of the viewports.  Is there any way to set this template up so that I can have, lets say, STA 100+00 - 110+00 in the top viewport and then STA 110+00 - 120+00 in the bottom viewport.  I understand that I can move the viewports once they are created, but I would rather have that done automatically.  I am not sure if what I want done is possible with Civil 3D, but if it is could someone please help me out with my situation.

 

Thanks,

Dylan Douglas

You'll have to manually consolidate the views :smileysad:

I had this as a AUGI member request back in C3d 2008.  Got some votes, but it never made it to Autodesk.  For many of us that do roadways, it sure would be nice if that was an option, as it would allow us to streamline the creating of sheets like traffic control, erosion control, ect... where they follow the alignment and the standard is to stack the plan views.

 

Hint:  use the view frames as "zoom/window" for your viewports- it helps speed things along.

You can run PP and copy clip vports to consolidate.
