Curve Calculator - Degree of Curvature

925 Views, 18 Replies

Related to Civil 3D 2013.  I'm trying to use the curve calculator to obtain values of a curve.  The problem is the value for Degree of Curvature is 00d00'00" everytime.  Is this broken in 2013 or is there some ambient setting I need to set? I've attached a screen shot.

 

Many Thanks,

Have you installed the Service Pack? I have, and it appears to work correctly for me. Although the readme does not say this was an item that was corrected.

I get the same result with the curve calculator and I do not have the service pack installed.

I tried this on my 2011 version with all service packs installed and the curve calculator worked normally.

I have SP 1 installed but still get 0 for Degree of Curvature.

Ditto,

2013 SP1 and "0" for degree of curve here.

 

Jeff,

Can you post your test drawing to make sure it's not a drawing thing. I did try with my template AND the NCS standard though.

Here's a setting to check, since I just noticed the OP's unit arc length is 0

OK, so looks like there is a bug when selecting the curve. If you input the values to calc a curve, without first selecting a curve, the DoC works correctly. As soon as you select an arc in the drawing, the unit arc length gets set to 0.
