Editing Civil3d’s Default Color Banding Schemes

The file to edit the color schemes has been added back into Civil3d and is located at C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012\MapThematicRamps.arm
Just open with notepad and edit


  1. Thanks a lot. I was spending hours to get this information and i found it here. Great.

    Keep up that work.

  2. Thanks for pointing this file out. I've been looking for a way to creat custom color schemes. I tried modifying the MapThematicRamps.arm file. I copied a scheme, renamed it and changed the colors. However, when I closed and reopened c3d and tried to change the color scheme in a surface style the new schemes I created didn't show up. Any idea why that might be? There was no error message. One of schemes used true colors instead of index colors. Could that be the problem?

    I got the same problem the Changes in MatThematicRamps dont show up. Is there any other way or am i just doing it wrong. I tried to edit an existing colorscheme but it just ends upp the way it was from the begining!

    My understanding from a couple of years ago this that they broke the linkage to this file in a new version of Civil3d I think 212 on. You could try this tool on the appstore Red transit that copies color schemes from surface to surface and file to file.

  5. Thanks for posting such informative and much useful safety products !!!
