If you have been using Report Manager in the past and are one of the regulars on Being Civil you may have noticed an old post Radial Stakaout Report – Changing Angle from Azimuth written by Justin. In short, this post talks about one way to edit those XSL scripts with LandXML Reporter. If you are using Civil 3D 2011 you may do pretty much all that within Civil 3D. To get a better understanding of this tool I will try to use it in one example. See it after jump.
As I said, I will use real data to show the difference. You all have your Align-4.dwg in your tutorial dataset (C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011\Help\Civil Tutorials\Drawings)
1. Open Align-4.dwg and from Toolbox tab, run Alignment Curve report
2. Save the CivilReport.html on your desktop. Report will also show up in Internet Explorer automatically. You will notice that the Report is in Imperial units.
3. Now, go to Toolbox tab and select the first button showing red briefcase to open up Report Setting Editor. Here you would need to change the settings for types of objects you wish to edit. In this case it will be Alignment.
4. Set Coordinate, Elevation and Linear to meter and desired precision and rounding. Then close the Editor.
5. Go back in Align-4.dwg and from Toolbox tab run Alignment Curve report
6. Note that values are different than the values you received in the first image
7. Now you are free to modify any XSL reports.
