In Civil 3D I have calculated the volume between two surfaces. I would like to have corresponding cross sections of the first and second surface for all the study area. "Create superimposed profile" cannot solve the problem completely since it creates only profiles along one alignment and doesn't cover entire study area. I have did it in Land but I could not find the tools in Civil 3D.

Any suggestion.

  • You need to describe your question clearer. A profile would only be capable of depicting points (possibly original and proposed)along a line. It would require multiple profiles to cover an entire surface – Brad Nesom Jul 22 '13 at 2:05
  • @BradNesom, Completely, you are right. Let's say I am looking for cross sections in study area which present both surfaces in each section. – ali amidi Jul 22 '13 at 19:04
  • Can you edit your question to be clearer. for instance the "Besides" statement either means you don't want the previous or you want something besides cross section of first and second surface? maybe you mean "also" you want... – Brad Nesom Jul 22 '13 at 19:33
  • @BradNesom, Done. Any technical idea about the question? – ali amidi Jul 24 '13 at 12:55

I am not exactly versed in displaying both the surface and the cut/fill surface in your section data.But I know it can be done.
