I have these two surfaces : 1) RA2 Merged and 2) SBDOGL.
I have a Horizontal Alignment. CL 0-75200.
I need to generate Cross Sections at 10m intervals and publish them as AutoCAD files.
Could some one help.
I attach my project file.
Create a Corridor
Add the surfaces either as Original Ground to the Corridor oras Surface Instructions in the Corridor. If you want Materials shaded then for each Surface you add after Finished Grade add the Material Above the Surface to the Surface Instruction.
Now you can import your Drafting Template (from the Sheet Layout / Drafting Menus. USe the A(X) (A0 etc) sheet size you want - the ones with the names like A0 Plansert (ENG) are all set up for Cross Section Plotting
Once you have the Planset in the project (Drag and Drop from the Drafting Template folder (the files are VCL files - the folder is opened when you run the Drafting templates Command.
In Project Explorer you will find the Plansets. Open the Plan Set and you will find Sheet Sets. In the Sheet Sets you will find one called Cross Sections. Right click the Sheet Set and select Edit / or go to Properties Pane and select the Corridor Model that you want to use for the Cross Sections. This will link the Sheet Set to the Corridor Model and will auto generate the Cross Sections. In the Edit function you can play with the settings if not exactly as you need them. Once happy with the look of your Sections then you can right click the Sheet Set in Project Explorer and select "Build Sheets" to generate the Sheets of Cross Sections as per the last look of the Editor. The Sheets are built under the Sheet Set and you can review them to make sure that they are as you need them. You can also annotate them if you want to in the Sheet View.
Once you are happy with the Sheets you can Print PDF Plan Set and then select the Sheet Set and send the Drawings to a PDF File.
Note the Drafting template is populated with data from the Project Settings (Company Information, User Information etc. You update the Project Settings and this updates the text on all drawings. You can also replace the Company Logo wth your own Logo - there is a file in the Drafting Templates Folder called Your Logo Goes Here (V).png - simply switch your logo for that file and maintain the name - the logo will then be replaced. Your Logo should be less than 400 pixels Wide and 200 Pixels High to simply replace the one that is there. Use Microsoft paint to Resize the Logo before switching it out. The Logo will be replaced when you restart the project.
Thank you very much.

Can you only see Corridor Surfaces in the Create Cross Sections command?
I would like to print some cross sections of several surfaces I have similar to the way it looks in the Surface Slicer. When I am in the Create Cross Sections window the only surface that shows up is Original Ground.
The surfaces have to be at least referenced to the Corridor Model as
reference Surfaces for them to be printable in the Cross Sections output
function. Go to the Corridor Model in the project Explorer, find the
Corridor (not the template or the corridor surface) and right click and
select Edit - then add the surfaces you want to plot as reference Surfaces.
Then go back to the Cross Sections plotting and tap refresh (or close and
reopen to Refresh the Surfaces lists) and then you can select the ones you
want to print and how yiu want them to appear (Color, Lineweight etc.)
