The effective use of Civil 3D Corridors models can make or break our civil engineering projects in Autodesk Civil 3D. Our skills mastery of the Civil 3D Corridor Arts is crucial and mission critical.

Civil 3D Single Baseline Corridors with only one Alignment and Profile pair (a Baseline) and a single Assembly (applied in a Region)…

Multiple Baseline Corridors are a powerful design and deliverables documentation tools in Autodesk Civil 3D. The Multiple Baseline Corridor (MBC) or the Complex Corridor is one of my favorite things in Civil 3D. Why? Project-based and better managed design in Civil 3D is what I tend to rave about in this blog.

The folks out in Civil 3D Land will laugh and…

Lots of people in Civil 3D Land are truly committed to Feature Line based grading design in Autodesk Civil 3D. Nothing is wrong with that. The Grading Design by Feature Line Heuristic is well understood and employed by most civil engineering and survey professionals. Civil 3D is loaded with useful practical Ribbon tools to help us get ‘er done.…

What the heck is an Alignment-based Point Group? What? You’ve never had to document locations on Plan and Profile sheets? There lots of locations (points) we need to label and or symbolize relative to those Autodesk Civil 3D View Frames slapped down along an Alignment. View-based Point Styles and Point Label Styles can help a lot with the automation of our project…
