creating infill at the grading example from the civil 3d tutorial "filling holes in a grading" (grading-6.dwg) failes when selecting the area to fill. The command finshes whithout changing the model. There is no diamond symbol displayed.
any ideas what is going wrong? why i am not able to select the area?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by bernd.rosemann. See the answer in context.
Thanks a lot - this was very helpful.
It seems that it works only, when the selection of the infill areas are done in a top view (right side of the window)?
First I would audit , purge a purge reg apps and try again.
Secondly, I would look for an openinf in the feature lines. The infill only works with closed series of feature lines
what do you mean with "purge reg apps"?
There are no gaps at the feature lines, because there is a solution file which includes the infill. But after deleting and trying to redefine the infill I had the described trouble. Attached you will find the tutorial file. Are you able to have a look at this and describe me the solution in more detail?
Unfortunately I do not have cad at my disposal right now. If I recall the tutorial correctly it is the building foot print with the ramp between a lower section. Are you trying to create the infill between the building feature line anf the offset feature line and did the offset feature line go into the same site as the grading? if no there is your answer. FL have to be in the same site for infill to work.
Did AUDIT show any errors?
Run Audit until no errors show up
Use the cammand line purge:
-pu A * <enter> N.
-pu R * <enter> N
thank you so far ... but I have no idea whats going wrong, maybe it is a simple stupig thing? I used the finished exercise drawing and deleted the infill, so I should have a good starting point to resolve. Doing the modifications again, I have the same problem - nothing happens. Please have a look.
ich hab's gerade mit 2013 probiert (Deinen Screenshots zu folgen) und das hat funktioniert. Welche Civil3D-Version hast Du?
I just tried it with 2013 and it worked (following the screenshots), what version of Civil3D do you have?
- alfred -
are you deleting the infill with an autocad delete command or with the c3d delete grading command?
ALWAYS use the grading ribbon or right click to delete gradings. It is not a gaurentee but the way you are doing it can lead to trouble (and may have).
