I am working on an assembly, but iam stuck. I need the assembly to look like the attached .dwg, i just have no idea how to make it and if its at all possible to make it in Civil 3d.
Hope someone has the skills to help me out
btw, iam using Civil 3d 2012
Everything to the left of the right edge of road could be made using stock subassemblies available in Civil 3D. You will want to use a lane subassembly (LaneSuperelevationAOR on the Lanes Tool Palette is a good one), then a few LinkWidthAndSlope (on the Generic Tool Palette) to build the left channel and berm, and UrbanSidewalk (on the Curbs Tool Palette), then a daylight subassembly (LinkSlopeToSurface on the Generic Tool Palette is about as simple as you can get).
Now to the right of the right edge of road you could also build with stock subassemblies and a ConditionalCutOrFill (on the Conditional Tool Palette) if you are okay ignoring the radii. If you want to incorporate the radii, you will need to generate the subassembly for that portion of the assembly using Subassembly Composer (available for free download on subscription.autodesk.com for Subscription Customers).
Thank your respons! i was affraid that something like that was the solution
Unfortunately iam not a Subscription Customers, so i dont have access to Subassembly Composer - and i cant get an access either. Is there anyway someone have the time to help me out, and make the assembly for me in the Subassembly Composer? I have no idea how much time i takes to put an assembly together in the composer, but i would be a big help for me if anyone would help me out.
In order to use a pkt file once created by Subassembly Composer, if you do not have the Subassembly Composer program on your machine then you will need to have the Subassembly Composer Support Pack installed on your machine. I believe both of these downloadable files (either Subassembly Composer or Subassembly Composer Support Pack) are currently only available to Subscription Customers. So having someone else make a pkt file for you if you are not able to have the Subassembly Composer Support Pack would not work.
The Subassembly Composer Support Pack is available on AutoDesk homepage:
I have installed it on my computer, so it is not a problem to import an pkt file. The problem is that i cant get access to the Subscription to get Subassembly Composer to make the assembly.
So if someone would take the time to help me i would be very grateful.
Good to know the Support Pack is available as freeware. I didn't previously realize that. Hopefully you will find someone who is willing to take the time to make the subassembly for the right shoulder for you.
If you can't get some one to do this for free, I provide a service to create subassemblies. If you are interested send me an emai christopher at Civil3DReminders.com and I'll provide you a quote.
Does the section absolutely have to include the arcs or can you approximate them with chords? Part of the reason that I'm asking is that the arcs could not be used in building surfaces from your corridor, so you won't be getting accurate quantites from them.
If you divide each of the arcs into say 12 segments and use a MultiLink sub to represent them then it should be close enough that nobody will know the difference.
Thank you for the offer Civil3dReminders, but no thanks…
Thanks SBoon, then i doesn’t matter. I need the surface from the corridor to get quantities information about the earthwork, so i have now made the assembly with links - and it actually looks pretty good
I just have a question about the conditional cut or fill subassembly. What impact does the min and max distance have?
If the vertical distance from the insertion point of the Conditional sub to the surface is between the min. and max. then it returns a TRUE result and whatever subs are attached to the outside of that will be processed. If the result is FALSE then nothing happens.
