When a proposed design includes areas with steep grades, you can easily end up with profile views that are too tall to fit on construction drawings. At times like these, profile views need to be split such that the entire vertical design can be seen on the sheets.
In the past you may have created split profiles manually, by creating multiple copies of a profile view, and then assigning each copy a unique station and elevation range. While there is nothing wrong with a “hand crafted” approach to profile views, Civil 3D is more than willing to do most of this work for you.
Using Civil 3D’s Split Profile View feature, you can easily convert profile views like this…
with just a few mouse clicks!
