It is my great pleasure to introduce Karsten Saegner to the blogosphere. Karsten is our co-worker from our Munich, Germany office and in the future will be contributing to Being Civil blog. I am sure you will find great benefits from his perspective, knowledge and experience he brings to the team. Now our team is really global and as we have contributors from three different continents and cover something like 18 hours of time zones. Please join me in welcoming Karsten.
You might have wanted to create a map series of your model and realize it with View Frames in Civil 3D.
In the Model View you see all your View Frames and how they line up to each other. To give an overview of where each View Frame is located in the model you might want to create an overview map and plot it, but the View Frames are not displayed in the Layout.
View Frames in Model View and they are missing in the Layout View.
The solution is to check the Viewport Frame Type and set it to “Undefined”.
After a REGENALL command the View Frames should be displayed in the Layout View and the overview map can be plotted.
