NOTES Module 18 Roadway Plan Production In this module you learn how to work with Roadway Plan Production tools in AutoCAD Civil 3D The Plan Production tools are used to automate the generation of plan and profile design and construction sheets Plan and profile design and construction sheets can be either generated in the working drawing or in new drawings that seamlessly reference the data residing in the working drawing Objectives After completing this module you will be able to Create view frames in a view frame group Create all plan and profile sheets in the current drawing Create all plan and profile sheets in a new drawing Create all plan and profile sheets in individual drawings Use the AutoCAD Sheet Set Manager to manage the sheets AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 Education Curriculum Notes to Instructor Data for this module resides in the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 Education Curriculum Module 18 Roadway Plan Production folder Exercises The following exercises are provided in step by step format Open the AutoCAD Civil 3D program prior to beginning the lesson by double clicking the Civil 3D icon on the desktop For those working in the imperial system use the drawing files beginning with the letter I Those working in the metric system should use the drawing files beginning with the letter M You are provided with a drawing for each exercise in the lesson You must use the drawings provided with the exercises The exercises in this module are as follows 1 Create View Frames in a View Frame Group 2 Create All Sheets in the Current Drawing 3 Create All Sheets in a New Drawing 4 Create All Sheets in Individual Drawings 5 Use the AutoCAD Sheet Set Manager 18 2 NOTES Module 18 Roadway Plan Production NOTES Roadway Plan Production In this module you learn how to use the Plan Production feature in AutoCAD Civil 3D to create plan and profile contract sheets Creating plan and profile sheets in Civil 3D involves the following steps Create the view frames Create the sheets View frames are model space objects that show the area of the horizontal alignment that is represented in each sheet To create view frames you select a drawing template DWT with layout definitions that contain scaled viewports and the sheet borders When you use the Create View Frames command the first step is to select the drawing template DWT that contains the layout definitions 18 3 AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 Education Curriculum After you select the drawing template you then select the layout definition Civil 3D then prompts you for a number of other parameters that control the creation of the view frames and match lines In Prospector view frames are organized in a view frame group The View Frame Style and View Frame Label Style control the display and 18 4 NOTES Module 18 Roadway Plan Production NOTES annotation of the view frames in model space The Match Line Style and Match Line Label Style control the display and annotation of the match lines in model space You can use grips to modify the position of the view frames and match lines in model space before creating the sheets After you have created the view frames the next step is to create the sheets When you create the sheets you are presented with the following options Create all sheets on layouts in the current drawing Create sheets on layouts in a new drawing Create sheets on layouts on individual drawings When you create the sheets and layouts in the current drawing Civil 3D creates a layout for each sheet in the view frame group When you create the sheets and layouts in a new drawing Civil 3D creates a layout for each sheet in the view frame group and uses AutoCAD external references and Civil 3D reference objects to reference the data residing in the original drawing This enables you to create a production drawing that is dynamically linked to the objects in a design drawing Graphical data is referenced using AutoCAD external references Object data is referenced with Civil 3D reference objects 18 5 AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 Education Curriculum A Civil 3D reference object is created in the production drawing and references the object data that resides in the working drawing You can also create the sheets and layouts in individual drawings In this circumstance AutoCAD external references and Civil 3D reference objects are also used AutoCAD Sheet Set Manager is used to manage the created sheets Sheet sets are defined and stored in a sheet set DST file that indicates where the sheets are located 18 6 NOTES Module 18 Roadway Plan Production NOTES Sheet Set Manager can also be used to automate the population of relevant data in a title block such as date and drawing number 18 7 AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009 Education Curriculum Key Terms 18 8 External Reference An AutoCAD function used to share the graphical contents of one or more drawings with other drawings Layout Used to represent a single sheet in a contract drawing set The layout is a tab that contains a title block and viewport s and has details of the associated printer and paper size Match Line A line drawn in plan view that indicates the separation between adjacent plan and profile sheets The position of the match line is based on the length of profile alignment that will fit in the viewport Match Line Label Style Controls the display of the match line label Match Line Style Controls the display of the match line Reference Object A Civil 3D function used to share Civil 3D object data residing in one or more other drawings Sheet Set Manager An AutoCAD utility used for the creation and management of individual sheets within a drawing set View Frame A model space object that shows the plan view portion of the model that is displayed in a plan sheet or a plan and profile sheet View Frame Label Style Controls the display of the view frame label View Frame Style Controls the display of the view frame View Frame Group A collection in Prospector of view frames for an alignment NOTES Module 18 Roadway Plan Production NOTES EXERCISE 1 CREATE VIEW FRAMES IN A VIEW FRAME GROUP In this exercise you use the Plan Production tools to create view frames View frames are created in model space along the horizontal alignment and show the locations in plan view that will be displayed in the plan and profile sheets A drawing template with layout definitions is used to determine the size of the view frames The viewport size and scale on the layout is used to determine the size of the view frames The layout definition in the drawing template also contains
