Need Help Creating Cross Sections In Civil 3d


Recommended Posts

Currently using Autocad C3D 2023, I need some help creating cross sections. I work in the civil construction/highway construction industry. I am a surveyor and have to plot cross sections on many occasions, comparing different plan models with some asbuilt models, and also displaying 3d objects along with the cross sections. The main issue I have is with scaling, labeling, and plotting to a pdf, and also creating sheets. Looking for someone who can possibly work with me video conferencing preferably. I've tried via, email, and it is almost impossible.


Attached is a typical cross section example. Its busier than what I usually have to create, but you get the idea.

Does the company who supplied the CIV3D not do training ? The other way to go is to get some one to do a series of screen grabs in correct sequence and paste into say Word then you have a "how to".


A side comment the addition of the drainage if done often, a lisp could help add pit blocks then join with pipe etc. Taking into account Invert & surface Rl's, plus vertical scale factor.


I know Civil Site Design an add on for CIV3D is much easier when it comes to plotting etc and does support a block at a point on the cross sections. produces layouts with cross sections.
