Stationing at every 3dpolyline vertex
« on: February 12, 2020, 04:26:26 PM »
Hello again,
I made my own workflow for road sections and it works much better than with Civil3d, because I have more control of what I'am doing :-)
For longitudinal road profile I use ''Profile 3dpolyline'', which gives me values for every polyline vertex (0+000, 0+5.155, 0+10,352...), but problem is that I need to put those same marks in the plan view.
So basicly I need ''Stationing...'' command but without fixed interval values. I have circa 50 profiles, so putting stations manually is a pretty painful process.
Is there a way to do this easily?

To mark chainage/station text on polyline/ 3d ployline at every vertex of polyline/ 3d ployline. I think this option not available.
Try to use a lisp program to mark chainage/station on polyline/ 3d ployline at every vertex of polyline/ 3d ployline.

Here is how you can do it.

  • Create a block that will represent your station symbol, insert the block into the drawing and save your drawing.
  • Profile your Polyline.
  • Select all station text that are placed in bottom of the frame
  • Use "Export text to Excel"
  • Use "Draw from Coordinates" type "Block at station" to insert your block as a station marker in your alignment
  • Copy the station text from Excel and paste it into station column of "Draw from coordinates"

To get accuracy, remember to increase the value for annotation decimals when you profile

Would it be possible to draw cross sections at those non rounded stations without manually typing them  one by one?

Nevermind, I draw cross sections manually, by typing in stations one by one. Lisp you provided ish0000 helped to fill a gap, so CADtools with little bit of LISP-ing is best way to draw sections :-)
