I'm currently trying to figure out how to show my designed utlity (storm water utility) that is following my road and my road profile all in one. I know how to do a profile-run of my utlity, I know how to do my road profile, but how can I show them on the same profile view? Is it possible? Or I just have to double my profile view , one for my road and one for my utility?
And tips on where to start looking will be very appreciated.
You could use the Project Profile to Element tool to get the utility profile within the road profile view window. You could also use the Create 3D Cut tool get a view of the 3D in the profile view.

Thanks Holly, the 3D cut tools is very usefull for crossing utility, but for parrallel utility it does not work, or maybe there is a trick to show something parallel to my center line in the 3D cut, maybe a 3D cut offset tools could be usefull?
Also the project profile to element tools only project the bottom of the pipe, I could then use the profile offset transition tools to create a dynamic offset of my projected pipe, but what if the pipe diameter change? And how can I show the manhole in my road profile?
I see how to use this tool and it does work but how do I get crossing utilities to show the pipe and annotation automatically when viewing the road profile? I thought I had it set but I cant seem to figure it out. Been struggling with this all day.
Is this now a feature of Update 4?
It's been added in update 4 and work great, thanks!
