Polyline stationing (specific)
Kevin Malone posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLHello, I'm working on a project that requires a lot of specific polyline stationing. I'm using Map 3D 2008 with modules for Surveying/Planning adjusted for standards in my country, and among all tools I have one for stationing polyline. It works in these steps: - select polyline - starting station (example: 0+000.00) - starting station number (integer value as sufix for labeling stations, example: PR 1, PR 2....) - distance between profiles Result of this can be seen in attached file STATIONIG.dwg, but basicaly I get profile on defined distances and on every vertex. What I need for current project is to label first point, last point and possibly one or two more on click. Example is in attached file SPEC_STATIONING.dwg As you can conclude I can get desired result by stationing polyline with current tools and then deleting excessive stations. However, I have nearly 850 short (up to 150-200 m) polylines, so deleting them would consume big chunk of time. I have found couple lisps for stationing poyline, but none of them fits. Honestly I thought there has to be some lisp to deal this with great detail since this is common operation in planing. I know C3D does this perfectly, but sometimes you need quick solution, not have to deal with alignments and other elements. Stationing line has the following elements (picture below): 1) polyline to be stationed 2) starting station (in meters) 3) station distance format (0+00.00, 0+000.00 ...) 4) station label (prefix, sufix and starting number) 5) left and right line (length) * Items 3,4(prefix and suffix, not starting number) and 5 could be hardcoded, since they would always be the same in every country. Note: angle of stationig line and text should be: - perpendicular to polyline start/end segment on first and and last polyline point - perpendicular to polyline if station is drawn on segment (not vertex) - half of exterior/interior angle on every other vertex I believe this lisp would be useful to a lot of people in surveying/planning.

Alignment Station Markers in Map3D
hippobottamus posted a topic in Map 3DHi there, I've found many instructions for using Civil3D to place alignment station markers, but I was wondering if there is similar functionality in Map3D or a LISP routine that accomplishes something similar?
Picking a station along a curve - AutoCAD
stiebert posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceI have a paper plan set of a sidewalk that contains several simple horizontal curves. I've managed to use the curve data to replicate the sidewalk centerline in my CAD file. The outside edge of the sidewalk is kind of a zig-zag polygon line. To locate change of direction corners in the zig-zag line I was given the location point as a station along the trail and offset distance from trail centerline. My question is how do I easily locate a point along the curve at a specified station. I've managed to do a few using the MEASURE command and I insert a block at the specified station as a distance from the point of curvature. This works, but is very cumbersome and on top of that every time I insert the block it inserts 4 of them at the specified length that I entered. Please let me know if anyone has a quicker method. Also, if you know how to fix my problem with the MEASURE command I would appreciate that as well. Thanks,

Profile Station Labels - Align to Grid
traumathecat posted a topic in Civil 3D & LDDHi all, I'm working on street profiles and I am trying to use Civil 3D's (2011) Profile Labels - Major Station Labels. I've gotten the labels to display, but they rotate in relationship to the profile line. I'd like all of the station labels to be oriented at the same angle (90°). Does anybody know how to do this, or if it is possible? Thanks.
