A blog about Civil 3D method and practice, Civil 3D Templates, Civil 3D Styles, Civil 3D Management, and Civil 3D Customization

 

We can employ Corridors to solve a lot of significant and common site design problems in Civil 3D. Albeit we do need some skill and practice. Corridor design methodology is more productive than the classic Feature Lines only approach. After all, Corridors can produce related and managed Feature Lines in bunches.

That nifty trick alone says we should consider and take Site Design with Corridors…

The Design State. When we employ Civil 3D Corridors for any form of design the Design State matters. What is that?

When was the last time in a Civil 3D project you only had to employ a single Assembly? Ok. Sometimes even the good get lucky. A single Assembly that works alone seems to be the exception not the rule.

Assemblies seem to run in packs…

To sub or not to sub. That is the question.
Do you employ the Autodesk Civil 3D stock subassemblies or your own custom PKT files versions produced with the Civil 3D Subassembly Composer to produce Assemblies used in Baseline Regions in your Corridor designs? As in the norm with the Civil 3D Diva, we soon discover there is…

If you follow this blog, you’ve perhaps noticed that I’m not a big fan of Autodesk’s dependence on Tool Palettes to manage the complexity in the Civil 3D Assemblies that are employed in Corridor Baseline Regions. Time for an intervention? A 12-step rehab program would help. Some acts of contrition are probably in order. I know this is unlikely. Denial is a powerful thing. Are you a bit confused?…

Autodesk released the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2019.3 Update. This third, and perhaps the final, Update for Civil 3D 2019 basically includes major fixes to Data Shortcuts, the Subassembly Composer (SAC), the Traverse Editor, and many other related fix it updates for Civil 3D 2019. A detailed listing from the readme is included below.

The AutoCAD Civil 3D 2019.3 Update is…
