When I publish a drawing to Google Earth with Civil 3D 2012 the kmz file does not show up in Google Earth. The wizard seems to execute properly, even winding up in the correct geographic location and is listed in the temporary files, but the entities do not appear. I have successfully published this and many other files with version 2011, but can’t seem to find “the magic” to make it work with the latest version. Am I missing some settings somewhere?
How did you get the Google Earth plug installed? I found this post:
But I get a class not registered error
That post referenced AutoCAD 2012 not Civil 3D. Google Earth was installed on my computer "at birth". I assume that should do it. Perhaps not.
Did you ever get this one figured out? I am experiencing the same issues. I try to send parcel or alignments to Google Earth and, like you said, it zooms to the correct location, but no objects appear.
I have not had that problem. The only problem I have had is if I don't use the pick button on the mouse it zooms all the way in to "0" Elevation. I suppose there is a setting, but it doesn't concern me at this point.
I found in the readme that Google Earth for Civil 3d 2012 will be supported at a later date. Page 2 of the attached pdf
I am still having the problems listed in the earlier posts. 2012 Civil 3D data (surfaces and Materials) not displaying. The Camera path which is just a polyline comes in fine.
As well, having same issue with Civil3D 2012 exporting the KML/KMZ.
We use the KML/KMZ's in ArcGIS Explorer (Desktop and On-line).
Same issue that Cogo Points simply don't work.
In testing an alignment, the point style Marker(s) (Core Block) come in, yet NOT the alignment
geometry. The "XML" content's all there, just not anything relative to Civil Object graphic's.
Yet to try any further Civil 3D Objects from R2012. For ref., product is "Fully Updated" + Ext.'s.
I see on LandXML.org, that Nathan has some sample LandXML files that have been "converted" to
KML/KMZ format. Anyone know how these files were generated (inside older Civil3D Version, or ?).
Used in R 2008 on some surfaces & parcels (?) w/o any problem, so R 2012 ???.
For one of those samples, the XML clearly shows an "Alignment" within file content being transformed.
If the "XML data" is being clearly passed, seams like a graphical ?
Any assist. would be GREATLY appreciated.
How do you use the pick button to avoid zooming to 0?
