Our decisions and choices about the mission critical Design Control in Site Grading Corridors are where the rubber hits the road in a production environment in Civil 3D. Like all things in Civil 3D Site Grading Design Corridors favor the iterative development of improved and managed design control.

There are lots of potential forms of Design…

Autodesk purchased the ProjectExplorer for Civil 3D product back in mid-April. I said at that time this would/could be one of the best things Autodesk has done for Civil 3D in quite a while. The product went up somewhere into orbit and it just splashed down.

The new Autodesk Project Explorer for Civil 3D extension hit the street for AEC Collection

Site Design Grading Corridors can be a practical production adventure in Autodesk Civil 3D. You could say that there are too many approaches for how to get a Site Design Grading Corridor beasty to work in Civil 3D. Sadly, there Civil 3D workflows that work for some grading design scenarios that seem to fail completely in other apparently similar scenarios. What a hassle. Why bother?

Does…

Are Civil 3D Corridors employed to produce Site Design grading solutions worth the small extra efforts we need to make in our design control details? If we want more adaptive and flexible options available in our Autodesk Civil 3D site design projects, the answer is pretty obvious.

Design Beyond the Breaklines

We all know that the classic Feature…

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…
