One Spot Elevation For Multi Surfaces in Civil 3D
Hi everyone in this post, I am going to show you how to spot elevation style able to show you multi surfaces elevation at the same time.
- Make your own surfaces as a TIN surface.
- You can make one TIN Volume surface to get the difference between two surfaces. As my example here.
- To make the new label style go to Settings –> Surface –> Spot Elevation then Right click and choose New.
- Name your new style, I named it ” One Spot To All ” .
- Go to the Layout tab change the name to the EG surface. I will accept the default properties for now. ” you can change it as you like”.
- Add new component ” Reference Text “.
- Select the type ” Surface ” .
- Name the new component with ” FG Surface”. and change the position to fit your needs. ” you can follow me if you like” .
- Edit the contents to be Surface Elevation. ” you can type a prefix to easy define your surface elevation ” in my case i made it ” FG “.
- Repeat the steps from 6 to 9 for the third surface with a prefix of ” Diff ” .
- Start adding your spot elevation at the plan by going to Annotate tab –> add labels –> surface –> add surface labels.
- Choose your label type ” Spot elevation ” and your label style ” One Spot To All “. and click add.
- He will ask you for the surface ” right click and choose EG surface” Then the next surface ” FG Surface” and finally the last one “Volume surface”.
- Now he have the 3 surfaces. you can click any where he will show you the elevation of the selected place with the elevation of the both of ” EG & FG ” and the difference between them.
That’s it, I hope that was easy for everyone, see at the next tip, Thanks
