I have recently switched over from 12d & InRoads to Civil3d and need a bit of help with a few items.
I have a horizontal alignment and now want to create a vertical alignment which i have setup the file. But now it comes time to create the vertical points and what i want to do initially is drape (12d term) the alignment to the existing surface at 25m intervals and then drop it 0.9m below the existing surface. I just want some quick and dirty vertical to begin with as the alignment total is 45km long. Can this be done automatically? As i dont want to go and manually insert these IPs etc.
Thanks for your help.
Here are a some methods to sample the existing surface at an even interval.
Then after creating the Layout Profile, use the "Raise /Lower PVIs command on the Profile Layout Tools Toolbar to lower it 0.9m.
I have a 3d poly in which i want to retaining both horizontal/ vertical and create this into a Civil3d alignment. Seems simple in other packages but i am still learning C3D and would think that this could simply be done via an automatic convert? Is this possible? If so could someone please help.
I am basically doing my alignments in 12d and want to bring into c3D to use the plan and profile generator...
The 3D poly is not a supported object type for an alignment definition in Civil 3D.
I know nothing about 12d but if your design in 12d then export LandXML the Alignments & Profiles
from 12d and Import LandXML into Civil 3D. Not sure if 12d supports LandXML?
