Section view creation in Autodesk® Civil 3D® is quite complicated with lots of parameters. Section views elevation range is hard to control & plot pages often leave large blanks.
This App will help ease the section view task by adding the following features:

  • Flexible section views arrangement:  Number of section views per row/ column is fixed by users 
  • New method for determining elevation range: Elevation range is now implicitly set through the minimum distance below & above sections
  • Configuration saved to file: Previous session parameters are auto saved on Exit, and manually Reload if needed
  • Enhanced style setting table: Section name replaced by Section source name, also a source type column is added for clarification


App creates Individual section views, NOT section view group. The following pros & cons of individual sectionviews created by this App should be aware of:


  • Each section view can be manually moved to another position. Position not changed after an update event (eg: annotation scale changed, nearby section view deleted);
  • Elevation range is implicitly calculated for each sectionview & recalibration for a  sectionview row; which can minimize blanks & save plot paper;


  • Section views offset range should not be less than the left & right Offset value of sample lines;
  • When annotation scale change, section views should be deleted and re-created;
  • Section view bandset cannot be replaced after creation (a critical error will occur if doing so).

Notes:  This App is written for METRIC drawing. Imperial drawing may make use of this App, but the result may be unexpected.

    Your App provides very clear explanation about section view parts.  The new elevation range setting method is awesome.  The only limitation is this App only supports individual section views.
