Dynamically linked Vertically offseted Design Profile?

I have a design profile and now I want to create one that's linked to it but have it 0.5m lower than the profile I just laid out. Is there a way to do this? I'd like to keep them dynamically linked so when i manipulate the 1st profile it will drop the 0.5m lower profile. In theory this would be a great feature to have in CIvil 3D. I'm just not sure it's been built into the software at this point.  Thanks.

 

At this point I will likely need to copy the profile and drop it 0.5m in elevation with edit geometry. Not ideal considering when I adjust the main profile I'll need to redo that process to show the profile 0.5m lower than my main design profile. (used as a side slope target).

This is not something built in to C3D just yet. It IS something available available in a 3rd party app if that would interest you. http://www.quuxsoft.com/SincpacC3D_Help/SP_DLThreeLineProf.htm

As a Sincpac user, it's well worth the few $$$. Awesome tools!

Does this run in 2012, 2013, and how long do they take to get this into a current version considering 2014 is only a few months away. Thanks.

There are versions for C3D 2007-2013. With the exception of SincpacC3D 2013, all were ready within weeks of the base C3D release (we start working on support as soon as we get a copy of the software from ADN). 2013 was delayed a few months due to a number of changes made to how we communicate with C3D, AutoCAD, and .NET in general. We don't anticipate any major issues moving on to 2014.
