Example text

Type controls the leader type. Options are Straight Leader and Spline Leader. At the time of this writing, the AutoCAD multiple leader object can’t be used. Display controls whether components rearrange their placement to a stacked set of components (Stacked Text) or maintain their arrangement as originally composed (As Composed). Most users expect this to be set to As Composed for the most predictable behavior. 20. Working down the Summary tab, you can review all of the options that have been selected for an individual label, as well as look for overrides, just like you did on the Settings tab.

Objects appear differently in varying plans. Having a full set of object styles to handle all of these use cases makes plan production as painless as possible. A good way to start creating object styles is to pull out a set of existing plans that represent your firm’s standards accurately. Pick an object, such as alignments or surfaces, and then begin working your way through the plan set, creating a new object style for each use case. Once you complete one object, pick another, and repeat the exercise.

This linework can then be used as is, or as a foundation for creating sound parcels, alignments, and other Civil 3D object geometry. It’s important to note that creating Civil 3D objects such as parcels and alignments from this foundation geometry is necessary for robust reporting and labeling, such as legal descriptions, segment tables, and more detailed design and analysis. By the end of this chapter, you’ll be able to •u Create a series of lines by bearing and distance •u Use the Inquiry commands to confirm that lines are drawn correctly •u Create a curve tangent to the end of a line •u Create a best-fit line for a series of Civil 3D points •u Label lines and curves Labeling Lines and Curves You can draw lines many ways in an AutoCAD-based environment.
