I was recently certified by Autodesk as a Civil 3D Implementation Certified Expert or ICE. I have worked in the Civil Engineering industry since 1987. In 1994 I started my consulting business doing training and consulting for Civil Engineering customers utilizing Autodesk civil engineering technology. I started L.A. CAD in 1999 and we are currently the 3rd largest Autodesk partner in the U.S. Studied Civil Engineering at Long Beach State, graduated in 1996.

Digging In...

Dig Deep with Civil 3D Label Style Components

Is there are a limitation to how Civil 3D labels can be customized? Sure there is. If you dig deep enough, you may still find a limitation to what can be created and customized within a label. However, the ability to add components is something you should look at first before you throw in the towel.

We have the ability to add primitive AutoCAD components, like lines, text, blocks, etc that make Civil 3D labels very versatile and powerful.

You will find as you look at the available component list for each object, you will see different types of components that can be added.

For instance, if you take a look at a Structure label within a Pipe Network, you will see the the following list of components: (Text, Line, Block, Text for Each). The Text for Each allows you to add labels for data representing how the pipes come into and out of the structures.

If you look at the components available for a contour label, you will see a different list as shown below (Text, Line, Block, Direction Arrow).

The main point is to take a look at these components for customizing labels any which way you can.
