 Product Details

C3D Surface Tools is a collection of tools to extend and enhance creation, editing and manipulation of surfaces in the Autodesk Civil3D product.

3dSurface Tools Ribbon

Details

Convert Sections: Converts cross sections to plan view 3dPolys along an alignment. Requires a centerline alignment and sections (as polylines).
  Convert Type: Convert a TinSurface to a GridSurface and vice-versa.  The original surface remains and can optionally be removed by the user.
Draw Mesh: Draws a mesh object draped on an existing surface with labeling options.
  Elevation Labels:
Add: Adds labels at the vertices or specified intervals along a selection set of objects.
Convert: Convert a selection set of inserts, points, text/mtext or AeccPoints to surface elevation labels.
Export: Export a selection set of elevation labels to a comma separated values (CSV) file.
Import: Import comma or space delimited ascii files, creating elevation labels at designated locations.
High/Low: Adds labels at the high and low points of a selected surface.
Extract: Quickly extract borders, contours (major & minor), faces, or points from multiple selected surfaces.
  Face Tools: Tools to manipulate 3dFaces, including surface area, set direction, normals, offsets and more.
  File Export: Exports a selected surface (grid or tin) to an external file.

Grade Path: Generate a FeatureLine along a surface at a given design slope.  This interactive tool allows you to specify directions to handle switchbacks and more.
  Grid Reconstruct: Recreate a grid file from ortho drawing geometry such as points, lines, or 3dfaces.
Lidar Tile: Quickly draw and label the 3D bounding box of a selection of binary Lidar LAS files.
Make Solid: Creates a 3dSolid using relative depth, absolute elevation, or a second surface.
Mass Points: Creates a TinSurface from desired portions of mass points files like Lidar, etc.
Pond Design: Design a pond using a starting featureline, specified side slopes and desired volume.  Creates the other featureline, two TinSurfaces and a VolumeSurface.
  Slope Labels:
Add: Adds labels at the vertices or specified intervals along a selection set of objects.
Convert: Convert a selection set of inserts, leaders (from LDT), points, text or AeccPoints to slope labels.
Export: Export a selection set of slope labels to a comma separated values (CSV) file.
Import: Import comma or space delimited ascii files, creating slope labels at designated locations.
High/Low: Adds slope labels at the high and low points of a selected surface.
Offset: Add slope labels along a selected linear object.  Options for begin/ending stations, interval and left/right offsets.
Style: Assign styles to a selection set of slope labels by designated ranges.
  Statistics: Collects statistics on selected surface (including extended info like plane/surface area) with numerous outputs (file save, list, mtext, table, etc).
  Style Visibility: Toggles all surfaces between currently assigned style and no display.
  TIN Reconstruct: Recreates a TIN file from drawing geometry such as PolyMeshes or 3dFaces.
Trim: Trims a Tin or Grid surface to a linear object boundary.  Actually reduces (trims) the data from the surface, not just a mask.

Bonus

  Introduction: While there may be similar functionality in newer versions of Civil3D, these tools are included as a bonus.  Some users may find this functonality easier and quicker to acheive their goal.
MapWorks Pad Design Video Pad Design: Generates a 3d (building) pad from a simple polyline at the desired elevation, including automatic daylighting to existing ground.  Simply specify parameters and select the geometry.
Template Desgin: Design 3D features such as roadways & ditches using section templates.  Simply draw your section in a block definition and this tool will project it along your path object to form a 3D geometry model.  Edge rays are automatically trimmed at the intersection of the surface.

Requires (one of the following):
