Is there a way to pull the proposed elevations of my verticle alignment? I thought after running the stationing command on the horizontal alignment that I would be able to pull the elevations from the points stored in the data base, but they are all at a zero elevation. Just didn't know if there was an easy report that I could print out rather than measuring all the elevations off the profile grid. Thanks.

The labeling of an alignment will not be 3D. But you can use the DRAPE command to take any line or points and place them on a surface in 3D.

If you do this command on survey points in the database, then you will also need to UPDATE the DATABASE from the DRAWING (from the MsPoints menu -> Database Utilities) to ensure the database will have the elevations on those points. Also, be sure not to delete the original linework, when asked, when doing the survey points.
