Hi all, I am currently trying to design the top of a soundwall using civil 3d profiles. The problem I am having is the profiles don't seem to like duplicating the same station with 2 elevations. I have tried a couple different methods without success, Let me back up, my ultimate end goal is to print a report that will show me station, elevation of all of the steps. The profile will show me the grades and elevations at the bottom of the profile view, but will not generate a report. Ultimately I have to go back and draw all of the profiles in microstation. Does anybody have any clever tricks I could use to accomplish this task?
Thanks,
Dave

I agree with Jeff_M. Civil 3D does not like true verticals. A very small offest works like a charm.
