Elevation differences label between surfaces

Create an elevation differences label between surfaces in cross sections in Autodesk Civil 3D 2013

1. Open Autodesk Subassembly Composer for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 or Autodesk Subassembly Composer for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012 (for Civil 3D 2012 and 2011)

Alphabetical instead of numerical Sample Line Labels

If you want to change the sample line numbers into the letters in your sample line style description in Autodesk Civil 3D you can do it by creating your own sample line style that enables that operation.

Cross sections from right to left in Autodesk Civil 3D

In some cases you want to design in Autodesk Civil 3D the water channel to get your cross sections drawn from right to left in the reverse direction than usual.

If you want to (or have to) get the cross sections in the reverse direction you can use this method
and get them quite fast making small changes here and there.

The alignment reference station system

If you want to design one Alignment with several reference segments in Autodesk Civil 3D you can do it fast and easily.
This method is useful in some cases when you want to design something in the reference station system in spite of the global station system.

Major section grade break Labels with a Percent Controller

If you want to add grade break labels to the major section grade only (where the difference is greater than 1%) you can add labels with an offset and an elevation to hundreds of crosses sections for a surface and change a percent controller globally in Autodesk Civil 3D.

Dynamic corridor elevations descriptions

If you want to describe elevations of a pavement on a site plan by elevation points (not by a contours plan) you can do it in Autodesk Civil 3D by adding some particular points which will be:
