    dang wish i could get some help from that guy haha i know if I could have a starting point and a bit of a how to i could do this ez below i copied plate 3 instructions

    A driveway (or roadway) profile and associated sections are
    helpful when calculating the quantities of materials to add or
    remove from the building site. Your driveway profile begins at
    the center of the cul-de-sac on Ocean Avenue and runs the
    entire length of the driveway’s centerline.
    • For the driveway profile, use a vertical scale of 1″ = 10′
    and a horizontal scale of 1″ = 60′. Show the stationing,
    however, in 50-foot increments. Therefore, when plotting
    the drawing, the distance between Station 0 + 00 and
    Station 0 + 50 will be 5
    /
    6
    of an inch.
    1. Label Sta. 0 + 00 (Center of Cul-de-sac Ocean
    Ave.), the curb, the ROW, the PC, the PT, and the
    stationing at the end of driveway.
    2. Use Layer Details with the appropriate hatch
    patterns to show the cut and/or fill in the cross
    section. Don’t forget to show the culvert as an
    ellipse. You can make the culvert larger than it
    actually is. This way, it’s easier to see on this
    drawing. Indicate the culvert’s true diameter
    next to the ellipse.
    • For Section A, use a vertical scale of 1″ = 10′ and a
    horizontal scale of 1″ = 60’. Show the stationing,
    however, in 50-foot increments. Thus, when plotting
    the drawing, the distance between Station 0 + 00 and
    Station 0 + 50 will be 5
    /
    6
    of an inch.
    1. Label the southern edge of Driveway and the
    northern edge of Driveway.
    2. Use Layer Details with the appropriate hatch
    patterns to show the cut and/or fill in the cross
    section.
    3. Technically, the culvert should also be in this
    section. However, it’s clearer to show the culvert in
    the driveway profile. Showing it in Section A might
    be more confusing than helpful. Thus, it’s best to
    omit that feature of the building from Section A.

    You could have saved yourself the typing and just tell me the page(s) you wanted me to look at. LoL

    Yes, I agree, the instructions are kind of lite.

    Are you familiar at all with any of the terminology being used like Profile, Section or Stationing?

    Can you post an image of your Plate #2? I'd like to see what you did and where your section cut lines are located.

    A centerline profile of a road, or a driveway, would be one that runs right down the center of the road showing the elevation of the roadway itself. Typically this is generated from the plan view where one would note any contours the centerline crosses and/or any spot elevations that happen to fall on the centerline. When I worked for a municipal engineering department and we drew centerline profiles station 0+00 (the start of the stationing) would be the intersection of the street we were doing the drawing for and the cross street we were working from. I think in this project station 0+00 starts out at the center of the cul-de-sac doesn't it?

    Stationing is a way of indicating distance. We typically set our stationing in one hundred foot increments. Thus the first station that was 100 feet away got the designation of 1+00. The next one hundred footer got designated as station 2+00 the next was station 3+00 and so on. See the pattern that is developing here? If we were 50 feet down the road from the start of our stationing it would be called station 0+50. If we were 275 feet from the beginning the station would be 2+75. Once again see how this is progressing?

    Sections represent a cut through the earth viewed in the direction the cut line arrows indicate. In this project the sections will show how the land rises and falls.

    A classic mistake I have seen in most student drawings done for this project is how the new contours are melded into the existing ones. Typically these are not abrupt/sharp but rounded off. It's one of those things I think the P-F instructions fail to point out (amongst many others). New contours cannot just end in the middle of nowhere either. They have to blend back into the existing contours of the same elevation.

    A contour is usually broken to allow for the insertion of the contour interval like this --- 170 ---. In other words the contour line does not pass through the text. There is a way, using a TextMask to get this same affect without physically breaking the contour line in AutoCAD but I don't think P-F tells the student how to accomplish this.

    Are we missing the section lines A-A and B-B?

    One should try to avoid having text sitting on top of geometry as it may make it difficult to read when the drawing is printed.

    ok yea i remember the stationing stuff now but the weird scales are messing with me and I dont understand where the section is i tried across the culdesac but it wouldve been too thin for any detail is there a way u could post a picture highlighting where the section is taken from and the resulting cross section drawing from one such section? thats whats killin me right now. ive actually started the HVAC project since i couldnt get any headway on the civil the civil, hvac, electrical, 1 board drafting and the elective are all that separate me from that piece of paper that will ensure me a job. its been a breeze till now i feel like i did 9 years ago on cadkey workshop havin to learning it on my own and pushing it and the computer past the breaking point

    Ive been able to find those section lines its mainly the driveway section that is giving me the most headaches
