I am using Civil3D 2010. I am trying to export the offset/elevation data from my cross sections to a text file or excel file so i can paste the info into another program. so far i've been labeling the offset/elevation info on the section and typing it into excel by hand. Any suggestions?

You can copy values from the section editor. 

 

Select and right click the section line > Edit section.  Right click the table and Copy All.  Paste onto excel and delete the columns you don't need.

Using SewerGEMS to do a drainage study & I have to input cross section data.  Now I can paste the data into excel, then copy and paste what I need into SewerGEMS.  Now if I could just get my SewerGEMS model to run, I'd be happy, but I guess that's a discussion for another forum. . .

Why SewerGEMS?     Could you elaborate your decision to select SewerGEMS?

 

Have you tried the Autodesk Storm and Sanitary Analysis package yet?  While I can't help you run SewerGEMS,  you might find SSA a bit easier to use.

The client has SewerGEMS and they want to be able to run the model.  I'm creating it and develping solutions, they're going to maintain it.  Are you talking about the HydraFlow extensions, or is SSA something different?

SSA is the former BOSS StormNET, so it is something different that Hydraflow.   For a comparison ( since you are using a Bentley package), you can take SewerGEMS, StormCAD, CIvilStorm, PondPack, etal in one analysis package.  It is a subscription site download and it requires Civil 3d 2011 to be installed.  It runs as a standalone package,  but Autodesk has been able to tweak the package so that it talks to Civil 3d using the Hydraflow STM format.  

 

I would love to hear your feedback after you try it.

 

Feel free to email me if you have any questions about SSA.

Dear Harold_Alberto,

Of coarse in case of having one cross section your note works perfectly. But in my case that i have more than One hundred cross sections what’s going on?

Any thoughts will be highly appreciated.

HI Gerry,

 

From version 2011 and above, you can use the Feature Lines report.
