Quick tip for the newb's....
If you are running C3D and have 2 monitors, split your view with viewport vertically.
This will allow you to have your plan view on one side and maybe your profile or cross sections on the other.
make sure to turn ucsfollow off so the view does not change every time you change active views.
A great little command I ran across is the LINEWORKSHRINKWRAP.
If you have a bounch of boundary lines and you want the area for the outer boundary this will help save a lot of time.
Execute the command and select the linework that you need to create the boundary from.
It will create an outer polyline of your selection as seen in the image.
Great for drainage areas calculations.
A quick tip on labeling your vertical curve data every 10’.
Open up your toolspace, go to the toolbox Tap(oh yea.. forgot about that one..)
Open up reports manager and go down to the Profile section.
Right click on the “incremental stationing report” select Execute
Type in the distance you want to get data on, in this case 10’ and create report.
There you can copy and paste the data into your profile for station and elevation every 10’
