Join Josh Modglin for an in-depth discussion in this video Labeling parcels: Segment labels, part of AutoCAD Civil 3D Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Now that we've created and edited our parcels, let's go ahead and look at how we can label our parcels. We've already seen the area labels show up automatically when a parcel is created, but let's label the parcel segments in this exercise. We're going to open up our exercise file, 05_05_LabelParcelSegments. We see all of the parcels already laid out as well as the area labels in place. Now, we do have this parcel here for the different right of ways, and any time there's a parcel area label that we don't want to see, we can go ahead and select it, and under the Parcel Properties in the contextual ribbon, we can turn it off.
Under the Composition tab of our Parcel Properties, we can simply say we don't want to see an area label. And so although this parcel still exists, it works to help us create a subdivision without having the area label for the right of way. Let's go ahead and work with labeling our parcel segments. Now, we're going to label our parcel segments in such a way that we label all of the segments connected with each parcel. To do that, we're going to go ahead and select our parcel by selecting the area label for that parcel.
In the contextual ribbon for that parcel, we have the ability to add labels, and notice we can add multiple segment. I'm going to go ahead and select this option. It says select the parcel to be labeled by clicking on the area label. We're going to go ahead and select this, and then, it prompts each time whether or not to label clockwise. We're going to choose clockwise, and literally walk around our subdivision labeling all of our different parcels.
You see how quickly it places these labels in, and it creates all of the labels for the entire parcel. And we can continue doing this. We're going to stop here, we're going to let you continue completing this for the end of the exercise. Once the labels are there, it's important to note some key factors about these labels. Because we use multiple segment, we do not have multiple labels for this one shared segment between 20 and 21.
When I got to labeling 21, it already recognized that there was a label on this segment and did not add another label. In addition, we have the ability to make some adjustments to these labels. We already know what that diamond represents from our edits with the parcel. We can slide this label along a linear path, in this case, the segment. The square grip means we can drag it out and put it into a drag state. We can also make some other adjustments with this label.
Let me go ahead and select this label, and with a contextual ribbon for the label, we can reset it or put it back to where it was. One of the things we can do is flip label components. Right now, we have distance on the top, bearing on the bottom, but we can choose to put the bearing on the top and the distance on the bottom. We can also reverse the direction of the label. Right now, it says it's in the southwestern quadrant. We can hit reverse and put it in the northeastern quadrant.
We can make a lot of adjustments with these labels. We're also going to see how we can create parcel label tables, so these segments will have tables and of course create tags in a later exercise. I look forward to seeing what you've created once you've completed this exercise and labeled all of your parcels using the selection of the parcel, Add Labels, Multiple Segment.
This course gets you up and running with AutoCAD Civil 3D. First, instructor Josh Modglin shows how to model a surface, lay out parcels, and design geometry, including the making of horizontal alignments and vertical profiles. Next, Josh demonstrates how to create corridors, cross sections, pipe networks, and pressure networks. Then, he covers working with feature lines and grading objects, and how to share your data. He wraps up by providing an overview of plan production tools.
