Grading footprint

59 Views, 2 Replies

I try to grade a simple polyline to a surface.
The slopes I am using are 2:1 for cut and fill.
The slopes should be ok for daylighting to the surface.
I receive a warning:
"Some of all of the footprint doesn't grade"
But the software just hangs up.
Is there an issue if the slopes do not work that the software hangs up?
In Civil Design came up with an error but didn't crash.

Any ideeas?

same thing happens to me. when i try grading a range of stations, not the whole polyline, sometimes it is ok, but it can't work for the whole polyline. I think it is a bug of the program

We have been trying to perform what we call "simple" grading objects with CIVIL3D as well.
Just returning from the AU in Vegas, whole class on grading objects ended up to be a joke, in that being told the Civil 3D grading objects are still "unstable" and continue to use LDDT.

Go figure. We get mixed results, crashes, footprint not moving dynamically, you name it in Civil 3D full release.

Look at your slopes, maybe your missing (under/over) your surface definition your tieing to. Steepen, then work up/down to ensure your hitting your surface match.
