I decided that by sharing I could come up with some decent ideas from the Civil 3D community and who knows, and maybe somebody would learn something new (myself included). This week I’m going to share with you the pipe and structure label styles that we utilize for profile annotation. More after the jump.
It just so happens to be for sanitary sewer network parts, but you could manipulate the style to work the way you wanted. Our styles are basic and show the structure rim, inverts in/out, station, and offset. The structure also automatically fixes its position to the top of the structure, and the top of the profile for uniformity. Our pipe label is setup in a similar way, but may require some addressing when working with reverse profiles. We then have two separate styles on layers for future and proposed.
If you find any issues with my style please feel free to comment below and I’ll update this post. Hope this helps!
